OPI Holiday 2013 Mariah Carey Collection Liquid Sand Nail Art

 press sample 
Good morning! Yuck...it's Monday again. Did you all have a nice weekend? I decorated the house all weekend. You should see me...I decorate in rubber kitchen gloves to protect my hands. It's so classy. LOL. So  today I have a nail art look using polishes from the OPI Holiday 2013 Mariah Carey Collection. I got so much good feedback on the textured rose nail that I did for my OPI's Minnie's Closet mani (see it here), that I decided to try it again...this time on two whole nails! Sigh...one day I'll have time to try it on a whole hand maybe? :)

The blue nails are Kiss Me At Midnight, a Liquid Sand polish. It's a beautiful bright blue with silver glitter texture. Application was perfect. I used two coats. It did seem to take awhile to dry on me though. Which actually turned out to be an advantage when doing the rose nails.  The black nails are OPI Black Onyx. I love how slick and shiny it is.

On my middle finger, I applied Kiss Me At Midnight with a small nail art brush. I started with a dot in the center, then worked my way around, dabbing on increasingly bigger crescent-ish shapes. I used the same technique to apply It's Frosty Outside, a super blingy silver, on my ring finger.

What do you think? I really like the black, blue and silver together! And the textured polishes are beautiful. Actually, I think five of the six Liquid Sands from this collection are must-haves.
