OPI Mariah Carey Holiday Collection Press Release & Promo Pictures

OPI Mariah Carey Holiday CollectionOkay, so it’s just September, but I already have a holiday collection preview for you!

It’s the OPI Mariah Carey Holiday Collection, which is scheduled to be released in October.

Holiday collections are some of my favourites because they always have a lot of great colour choices, and the names are so festive!

I’m a fan of classic Mariah. She has the voice to sing like a bird, and her love ballads bring out the mushball in me. 😉

I also like how she’s evolved over the years. Although her current songs are very different than the ones from her Emotions or Daydream albums, I still find myself enjoying a lot of her tunes.

I put together a fun little collage of the polishes. Do any of these catch your eye?

OPI Mariah Carey Holiday Collection

Here is the official press release sent to me by PR:

All I Want for Christmas (is OPI)!

OPI Joins Mariah Carey to Launch 18 New

Limited Edition Holiday Nail Lacquers

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.

Mariah Carey is truly synonomous with the holiday season,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “People around the world listen to her festive, iconic songs – ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ is a personal favorite – and these 18 lacquers evoke the warmth, beauty, energy and positive spirit that’s present in Mariah’s music.

“This holiday season is all about red, glitter and texture for nails,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “With 18 shades, there’s a perfect hue for every occasion. The 12 crème and glitter lacquers include classic reds, champagne gold, and warm burgundies, while the six Liquid Sand shades should be worn without top coat for a matte finish in icy, frosted colors.”

In My Santa Suit and All I Want for Christmas (Is OPI) look very similar, don’t they? Almost like an exact match!

My favourites based on just the promo pictures are Kiss Me at Midnight (Yay! A blue Liquid Sand!) and Cute Little Vixen are definitely on my radar.

Although it’s far from Christmas, I can’t help but thinking about the snow and that giddy feeling you get when December 25 approaches. 🙂

Which shades are you most interested in? Out of the Liquid Sand shades, which do you like the most? Are you a fan of Mariah Carey?

    I really really really want the blue Liquid Sand! I’ve seen a swatch of that one already and it’s so gorgeous. I also like the confetti glitter polish, but it’s a really nice collection overall I think!

      Hey Renee!

      I haven’t seen the blue one in person, but considering that I really loved OPI Get Your Number (the first Liquid Sand I ever tried) and Zoya Liberty, I’m pretty sure I’ll also love this new one. So excited!

  2. Jess

    Hoo boy…I LOVE holiday collections and I have a feelin that my wallet’s going to be in trouble with this one! Looking forward to seeing swatches!

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Jess!

      Hehe, aren’t our wallets always in trouble when the holiday season rolls around? 😉 I’ll be sharing a few reviews, so stay tuned!

  3. Joyce

    OMG… 18 new colors?! (and did you get a look at that Pure top coat that I saw online a couple of days ago that is supposed to be released with this collection?)
    OPI is definitely going to be squeezing each and every penny from that poor wreck of a wallet of mine 🙂
    I mean… Liquid Sand? Instant MINE!
    Black glitters? Want want want!
    I’m just keeping my fingers crossed some of the reds are close enough to others to be considered dupes, but somehow I think it’s going to be two months of peanut butter sandwiches again (no jelly, sorry, have to save for that top coat!!)

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Joyce!

      Hehe, yeah, that’s a lot of polish in one collection – lots of variety!

      Yes, I’ve seen the Pure top coat (18K white gold and silver) – such a collectible item! WOW! I really like these special collector’s shades (like The Man with the Golden Gun). It makes collecting (and wearing) nail polish very exciting!

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Leejing!

      I’m looking forward to seeing some of these shades in person and sharing my thoughts with my amazing readers. Keep your eyes peeled for something really soon! 🙂 PR has told me that they’re sending me a few colours to try!

    3 of my favorite things? Red nail polish, OPI and Mariah Carey. I’m gonna go broke on this collection! In fact, I already bought a mini set of the liquid sands. The one with Silent Stars Go By, Baby Please Come Home and Make Him Mine. And I do intend to buy the other mini sets and probably all of the regular bottles too. But the two I’m most looking forward to are All I Want for Christmas (is OPI) and Kiss Me at Midnight. Good thing my birthday is coming up :).

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Tanya!

      Haha, so this collection is tailor-made for you then!

      In case I don’t get a chance to tell you later, HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY, TANYA! I hope that you have something fun planned. Enjoy!

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Lizzy!

      Yes, swatches are the true test. Since PR will be sending me a few shades to try, I’ll do my best to blog about them ASAP. I know that a lot of readers are really looking forward to this collection!

    Vixen , visions are sure my fabs but I am a little bit confused about ride for two , dunno seems like purple to me not chocolate, All I want for christmas seem red raspberry to me not marron, and yeah emotions have to see it first.

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Icequeen81!

      Sometimes promo pictures aren’t as good as the real deal. I’m hoping that’s the case here. I’m already excited about this collection, but I bet that I’ll be wowed when I see the actual bottles up close and personal!

  6. Amelia

    I’m in love with almost every polish from this collection! I want all of the liquid sand polishes an also I want ski slope sweetie, I snow you love me, my favorite ornament, all sparkly and gold and cute little vixen! 😀 there’s just to many beautiful nail polishes in this collection, I’m going to get broke lol 😛

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Amelia!

      Oh, that sounds dangerous to be in love with almost every polish in one collection! 😉 On the bright side, at least you’ll come home to a very happy polish family. All the colours love so lovely together, don’t they?
