OPI Stay The Night Liquid Sand

     OPI and Mariah Carey teamed up for a pretty fabulous collection that released this month. Four of the polishes are a completely new finish: Liquid Sand. Interesting, huh? When I first saw this finish, I was leery. I thought they were going to be gritty and chunky glitters. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised. I picked up three of the four. Today's swatches are of Stay The Night.

Stay The Night: Three coats over one coat of Orly Bonder.
No Top Coat.

     Stay The Night is a black textured jelly-ish polish packed with red glimmering glitters. I had to use three coats to achieve full opacity, but it built up nicely. Dry time was good. I did the complete manicure in less than 20 minutes.  I was surprised by the texture. It's not rough at all. It's actually on the squishy side. I couldn't stop touching my nails when I was wearing this.

Stay The Night: In Light Box

Stay The Night: Over Head Lighting
      The jelly look and feel of the base gives this a great depth; the glitter catches the light at every possible chance. I couldn't help but stare at my nails. My boyfriend actually complimented me on them. He liked the look of the sand.

     I wore this for two days and had no tip wear or chips! Pretty phenomenal for me; I have oily nail beds and most polish peels off my within a day of wear. It's usually not a problem since I change it up so often.

    Have you tried the Liquid Sands yet? Are you a fan of texture on your nails? If you're on the fence, give them a try!


  1. Pretty swatches! I have this one on right now - I'm in LOVE :)

  2. I haven't tried these yet, but this one looks really pretty.

  3. I've wanted to try them. Do you find the polish hard to remove?

    1. I didn't have any trouble at all. I thought it would be a pain, but it was a breeze!

  4. I have Get Your Number and I am totally in love with it! It wears like iron and it was a breeze to take off! The finish is so unique, I got many compliments while wearing this!
