Ladies and gentlemen…we have a winner! I have officially found my favourite nail polish from the new Mariah Carey for OPI collection – it is a striking blue shade called Get Your Number!
Now I don’t know whether I subconsciously saved the best ’til last (I do have a bit of a passion for blue nail polish…) but I have fallen in love this morning. I have been thoroughly impressed with the Mariah Carey collection in general, especially with the Liquid Sand technology, but this one really takes the cake!
Here was the result after one coat:
I think the shade is AMAZING on its own! It reminds me of a clear ocean, and is so unique. I did want to get a little closer to the shade in the bottle though, so added the recommended second coat:
I’m so in love that I can barely breathe (ok, a slight exaggeration there…) but in all seriousness, I have found one of my favourite nail varnishes of all time. I can’t stop looking at my nails! The finished look is a beautiful sky blue with tons of glitter and the amazing sand-style finish too.
I am seriously considering buying the full-sized version of this nail polish – I have some nifty storage for my polishes now, so I will definitely look into it. I can see this being an almost permanent fixture on my nails this summer as it is so bright and fun.
It isn’t recommended to use a top coat with these Liquid Sand polishes, and even without one they all last a decent amount of time without chipping. I’m really hoping this one will too, as it already feels super sturdy on the nails!
It’s going to take one amazing polish to top this and gain the title of my favourite nail polish ever!
