OPI Silent Stars Go By

OPI has recently teamed up yet again with Mariah Carey, for their Holiday 2013 Collection! I'm a huge Mariah fan, so I was really happy to hear this news! Today I'll be sharing my thoughts on one of the Liquid Sand shades from this collection, Silent Stars Go By* ($10.95 CAD).
 


"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." - OPI


OPI describes Silent Stars Go By as such: "This blush of textured pink has parades of sparkle." I really love this polish, it's a gorgeous champagne-blush shade with a healthy amount of glitter. OPI's Liquid Sand formula dries almost instantly to a gritty finish. I actually do really like the Liquid Sand finish, they're aren't overly gritty (I'm looking at you, Essie Belugaria!). I think that Silent Stars Go By will be perfect for the Winter season, it's almost a nude shade, but the sparkle really makes it special. I can already envision myself wearing this polish to a holiday party! This shade dries to a matte finish (as do all Liquid Sand polishes), but you can add a top coat if you wanted a shinier look. I decided to just use two coats of Silent Stars Go By, so what you see in the photos is without a top coat.

OPI's Mariah Carey Holiday Collection was released this October, have you picked up any shades yet? This collection includes 18 polishes, so there's sure to be something for everyone! What do you think about OPI's Silent Stars Go By?
