OPI Mariah Carey Liquid Sands Collection - Stay The Night (7 DAYS OF POLISH)

Liquid Sands have been on the top of my wishlist for the longest time now - so when I finally got my hands on these little beauties, I was over joyed. I haven't had the chance to rock all 4 polishes as of yet, but I did test out Stay The Night and fell absolutely in love.

If you're not familiar with OPI's Liquid Sands collection, it essentially looks just like a normal (glitter) polish in the bottle however it dries with a textured, sand-like finish. So not only do you get the stunning glitter look, you also have a textured finish! I cannot tell you how much time I've spent touching my nails when I had Stay The Night on! Yes, I'm weird I know. But trust me, the texture feels fantastic.

Unfortunately, my dodgy SLR camera didn't quite capture Stay The Nights true beauty, but you can already tell from these blurry photos that this is a winner. I've seen other bloggers say that this is their least favourite from the collection, but I honestly can't see why. I love the red glitter against the black base. But hey, each to their own.

Another reason I love these Liquid Sands polishes is that although you can wear them without a top coat (base coat is encouraged though) so you get that textured finish, you can also applied a thick top coat and get a glossy finish. In my opinion, either method looks great, but I think I much prefer the textured finish.

Even though i already know how yhe others turn out (from stalking other blogs), I cannot wait to try out the rest of the shades in this mini collection! 

This mini collection retails for $24.95 in stores (Myer and David Jones) or you can grab a bargain on eBay. I picked mine up from eBay for only just $17!
