Review & Swatches: OPI Mariah Carey Liquid Sand Mini Nail Lacquers


A few weeks back when I was strolling in Myers, I found the OPI's liquid sand polishes, which I have been wanting to check out for a very long time. At first I was going to grab a full size bottle, but then I really could not choose between the color range, so I opted for the mini nail lacquers box set. 

Liquid sand nail lacquer dries to a textured sand-feeling matte finish with reflective glitters. The box set came with 4 different colors - blue, purple, fuchsia and black. All the polishes only require 2 coats and with no top coat to retain the matte sand looking finish. 

(Excuse me for the quality of the swatch photos. These matte polishes are really hard to capture. I suggest you go to your nearby OPI stand and check out the swatches. They all look so much better and brighter in person.)

Here comes the swatches:

OPI Liquid Sand Nail Lacquer in Get Your Number

Get Your Number is a matte bright blue with silver, blue and green glitters. This is definitely my favorite out of the whole set. It seriously calls for attention with the oh-so-glittery finish! I don't usually wear light bright blue on my nails, but this totally an exception.

OPI Liquid Sand Nail Lacquer in Can't Let Go

Can't Let Go is a matte medium purple that is jam packed with dazzling purple fine and hexagonal glitters. This photo seriously doesn't do it justice. It looks much more vibrant in real life. 

OPI Liquid Sand Nail Lacquer in The Impossible

The Impossible is a matte bright fuchsia, which looks almost pinkish red to me. It has a hot red-pink base with silver, red and holographic glitters, as well as some small hexagons. This is my second favorite from the set. I love how sparkly it is even though it has a matte finish. 

OPI Liquid Sand Nail Lacquer in Stay The Night

Stay The Night is a matte black polish, which almost looks like a deep deep brown on the nails. It is packed with red fine glitters. I didn't expect myself to quite like this one, but turns out it is actually such a unique color. 

Overall, I really like the concept of the liquid sand polishes. They are very versatile to work with. If you are going for a shiny finish, you can always add a top coat on top and it will instantly give the glossy glittery effect. They also dry relatively fast, not too sure if it has something to do with the 'sand' in them. I heard that they recently came out with the Bond Girls collection as well. Would love to check out the color range when they arrive in Australia! 

What do you think of the liquid sand concept? Is this something you would try?
