Mariah Carey by OPI ♥ Swatches and Review Part One

Mariah Carey by OPI ♥ Swatches and Review Part One

Pin ItAre you a Mariah Carey fan?  I can’t say that I really am.  However there is one Mariah Carey CD that I don’t mind listening to - her Christmas one!  I may not like her, but let’s find out if I like her nail polish!

There are a total of 8 shades in the collection - 4 Studio Shades (aka regular nail polishes) and 4 Liquid Sands polishes.  Today I have the Studio Shades to share with you.

OPI Anti-BleakOPI Pink Yet Lavender (over Anti-Bleak) 3

Anti-Bleak is a gorgeous plum crème, however it is not the typical OPI crème formula.  Instead it is kind of thin and patchy.  It was fine after the second coat! 

Pink Yet Lavender (over Anti-Bleak) is a rose gold hex glitter with silver and gold micro glitter in a clear base.  It’s a pretty combo and looks awesome over Anti-Bleak!

OPI SprungOPI A Butterfly Moment 2

Sprung is a fold and copper foil in a pink base.  It’s not my kind of shade, but it is rather stunning on.  It definitely glows!  Please don’t mind the mess I made of my pinky finger, I managed to mess it up before I took pictures without even realizing it!

A Butterfly Moment in the bottle was a shade I was prepared not to like.  However, all of the reviews I read before I swatched it said how amazing it was!  As soon as I swatched it for myself I saw why… It wasn’t a peach frost like I though, but a gorgeous pinky-peach shimmer.  Swoon!  Unexpected favorite from the collection, hands down

Stay Tuned for Part Two!
