preview: opi mariah carey holiday collection



I don't post many press releases, but this one peeked my interest. Read on for bottle shots- lots of them, this collection is massive!


OPI announces the launch of 18 new limited edition holiday nail lacquers inspired by recording artist and international superstar Mariah Carey. This seasonal promotion includes an assortment of red, burgundy, maroon and chocolate brown hues, along with glitter-packed gold, bronze and pearl shades. Mariah Carey Holiday also features six new Liquid Sand™ lacquers, ranging from icy blue to frosted pink to sparkling graphite. Each of the Liquid Sand shades showcases OPI’s groundbreaking technology for a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle.

Mariah Carey is truly synonomous with the holiday season,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “People around the world listen to her festive, iconic songs – ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ is a personal favorite – and these 18 lacquers evoke the warmth, beauty, energy and positive spirit that’s present in Mariah’s music. “This holiday season is all about red, glitter and texture for nails,” adds Weiss- Fischmann.

“With 18 shades, there’s a perfect hue for every occasion. The 12 crème and glitter lacquers include classic reds, champagne gold, and warm burgundies, while the six Liquid Sand shades should be worn without top coat for a matte finish in icy, frosted colors.”

With 18 shades I don't think everyone will be opting to haul the whole collection, but there are some shades that look quite promising, especially some of the liquid sand shades. The collection will be available in Canada sometime in October at the suggested retail price of $10.95. See anything you'll have to haul?
