NEW OPI Mariah Carey Holiday 2013 Collection (Nail Polish Pictures & Review) Plus Pure 18K White Gold & Silver Leaf Top Coat

Press Sample

We're rockin' and rollin' right on towards Holiday season already! Here's the newest collection from OPI (inspired by Mariah Carey) to get you in the mood!

This collection includes 18 new nail lacquers (6 of which are the "Liquid Sand" formula) plus one limited edition white gold and silver leaf top coat named "Pure" (I featured it in this post here). There's lots of red, glitter, and holiday fun:

All I Want For Christmas (Is OPI)- gorgeous red creme (2 layers shown):
 All I Want For Christmas (Is OPI), topped with Pure:

In My Santa Suit- shimmery, glowing red (2 layers):

Cute Little Vixen- violet red shimmer (2 layers):

Underneath The Mistletoe- spicy sweet candy apple red (3 layers)

Underneath The Mistletoe topped with Pure:

Sleigh Ride For Two- dark, shimmery hot chocolate (2 layers):

I Snow You Love Me- silver holographic round glitters in a clear base! This one required a little manipulating to get the glitters where you wanted, but the end result is very cool. (2 layers on top of Sleigh Ride For Two):

Visions Of Love- rich, burgundy creme (3 layers):

Warm Me Up- "spiced coffee" according to OPI, this one looks a little grey and a little brown at the same time (2 layers):

Pure on top of Warm Me Up:

Ski Slope Sweetie- sheer golden pearl (4 layers shown here):

Pure on top of Ski Slope Sweetie:

My Favorite Ornament- champagne gitter (3 layers):

All Sparkly And Gold- this one is all sparkly, and also gold ;)  Seriously though, it has a cool, bronze toned sheer base with gold glitter making it look antiqued (3 layers):

Wonderous Star- gold flecked base with black glitters mixed in (4 layers shown here):

Kiss Me At Midnight ~Liquid Sand~ frosted ice blue (2 layers):

It's Frosty Outside ~Liquid Sand~ frosted silver sparkle (2 layers):

Baby Please Come Home ~Liquid Sand~ textured sparkling lilac (2 layers):

Silent Stars Go By ~Liquid Sand~ soft textured pink (2 layers):

Make Him Mine ~Liquid Sand~ textured warm rose (2 layers):

Emotions ~Liquid Sand~ textured black coal (2 layers):

Woohoo! That was a ton of swatching! What did you think of this collection?  My personal favorites are Underneath The Mistletoe, In My Santa Suit, I Snow You Love Me, My Favorite Ornament (so super sparkly in person!), and Silent Stars Go By.  There is certainly a red for every occasion included in this collection, and the glitters are very festive. If you can't get enough Liquid Sand, these ones are very fun too.  I'll leave you with some parting info from OPI:
