Mariah Carey's OPI Nail Polish Line Has (Surprise!) Lots of Pink & Glitter
By Megan McIntyre, Refinery29
As we sit hunkered down against the increasingly intense winds of Hurricane Sandy, all we can think about is how much we want to take our minds off of this cray weather. Like a psychic BFF, OPI was kind enough to release the first pictures ofMariah Carey's nail polish collection and it's provided exactly the welcome distraction we needed on this gloomy day.
Not one to disappoint, Mariah went all in on the pink and glitter, giving us a predictably sparkly, girly collection. While the colors themselves aren't exactly earth-shattering news, the brand is using this collaboration to introduce a brand-new type of nail finish called Liquid Sand. Four of these "Stage Shades" (as opposed to the normal "Studio Shades") feature a textured, matte finish when worn without a topcoat.
"OPI is extremely excited to work with Mariah," says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI executive vice-president and artistic director. "She's very passionate about beauty and her nails in particular. To pay homage to her iconic status, we wanted to launch her collection with something completely new and exciting. Liquid Sand nail lacquer offers a never-before-seen look with a pebbled finish that lightly shimmers with fine glitter particles. Worn without topcoat, Liquid Sand lacquer gives nails a unique textured matte finish worthy of a superstar."
