OPI Mariah Carey Holiday Part One ♥ The Reds

OPI Mariah Carey Holiday - The Reds

OPI has once again teamed up with Mariah Carey for this years holiday collection!  Just like I said when I reviewed the last Mariah Carey collection, I am not a huge fan of hers but I love her Christmas album!  So it seems very appropriate that this year’s holiday collection features Mariah and Christmas songs!

The Mariah Carey Holiday collection is a doozy – there are 18 polishes all together!  I will be breaking this up into 3 separate blog posts for you.  Detailed swatches and my thoughts after the jump!

OPI All I Want For ChristmasOPI In My Santa Suit

All I Want For Christmas is a cool bright red crème.  The best part?  It’s a one coat wonder! 

In My Santa Suit is the quintessential Christmas red shimmer.  Very glowy!

OPI Cute Litte VixenOPI Sleigh Ride for Two

Cute Little Vixens is a violet red shimmer.  The shimmer really pops in sunlight (below).  Very pretty!

Sleigh Ride for Two is a deep burgundy shimmer. 

OPI Underneath the MistletoeOPI Visions of Love

Underneath the Mistletoe is a gel-like red filled with pink and silver microglitter that brightens considerably in the sun (below).  My favorite for both the color and the formula!

Visions of Love is an oxblood red crème.  The formula was thin but easy to apply.  It was the only polish that required three coats.  Worth it!

I couldn’t resist showing you a few more pictures!

OPI is known for the reds in it’s holiday collections, and this one did not disappoint.  If you aren’t a fan of reds, don’t worry.  There are 12 more non-red polishes in this collection which I will be showing you today and tomorrow!

Are you a fan of lots of red polish in holiday collections?  Which is your favorite?  Mine are Under the Mistletoe, Cute Little Vixen and All I Want for Christmas.
