For January 2013, OPI introduces an 8-piece nail lacquer collection inspired by iconic Grammy Award-winning songstress, Mariah Carey. Mariah Carey by OPI also marks the introduction of a new polish finish for OPI—Liquid Sand.
Liquid Sand is a unique matte nail polish with a textured finish, infused with plenty of sparkle. I have a feeling this is just the start of mass-market availability of one-step textured polish finishes, so keep an eye out! Half of the Mariah Carey by OPI collection features the Liquid Sand finish (“Stage Shades”), while the remaining four shades (“Studio Shades”) feature traditional polish finishes—so don’t worry! If texture just isn’t your thing, there’s something else for you to choose from. Ready for a closer look?

“OPI is extremely excited to work with Mariah,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “She’s very passionate about beauty and her nails in particular. Her music, which includes 18 Billboard No. 1 singles, served as a wonderful inspiration for glamorous, sultry, vibrant colors.
“To pay homage to her iconic status, we wanted to launch her collection with something completely new and exciting. OPI Liquid Sand nail lacquer offers a never-before-seen look with a pebbled finish that lightly shimmers with fine glitter particles. Worn without top coat, Liquid Sand lacquer gives nails a unique textured matte finish worthy of a superstar.”
