OPI Mariah Carey Collection Feturing Liquid Sand Polishes

Hello Chics,
I hope you all had great weekend.. Its now chilling outside and hopefully when i wake up in the morning i will experience snowfall.. :) 

Today, I have OPI liquid sand polishes to show you which are part of OPI's newly launched Mariah Carey Collection. This Collection has 8 polishes in total, 4 of which are Liquid Sand polishes. As OPI says "OPI Liquid Sand™ lacquers featuring groundbreaking technology for a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle" , these are stunning polishes and if you like textured polishes than you are in heaven. 

I got a mini set of 4 polishes from ebay.  These polishes dries matte yet with lots of sparkle. OPI recommend not to use Top Coat with liquid sand polishes.

So, first is Get Your Number. This a blue jelly polishes with holo glitters.. polishes dries matte but glitter still sparkles and looks beautiful.. its a bit sheer and but 2 coats make it right .. in following pics i used 3 coats of Get Your Number and no top coat..

 hopefully you can see rainbow sparkling glitters of the polish... this polsih is perfect combination of matte with glitters.. matte effect looks more beautiful as time pass. Formula is nice and apply easily.

Can't Let Go is a purple base with lots of purple hex glitters. The color actually is more towards grape purple than appearing here. Applies easily and need 2 coats however to add more drama i layered 3 coats of this  polish. 

The Impossible is pinkish red jelly bas e polish. In some swatches over the internet i saw this polish having star glitters alongwith hex glitter but i couldnt find  a single star even after fishing.. maybe mini bottle doesn't have/very few stars in it. Apart from that , its a beautiful polish not my favorite in the collection but doesn't hate either. It took 3 coats to build this up.

Last and my most favorite from the collection is Stay The Night. It's a black jelly base with dark pink/red glitters. I love love love this shade. Took 3 coats to full and nice opacity. 

Overall, I like all the four polishes although they took a little more drying time as I  didn't apply any fast drying top coat. Many of us doesn't like textured polishes but if you like as myself than these can't be avoided. Can't comment about the stayng power though as i change my polishes in a day or two and when i took them , they all were doing ok. 

so, what all would be your picks.
