OPI Mariah Carey Holiday 2013 Liquid Sand Mini Trio # 2 Dark Review

Last week I showed you swatches of the Mini Trio # 1: Light from the Mariah Carey Holiday 2013 Collection Liquid Sand; and today I'm bring you swatches of the Mini Trio # 2: Dark. Without further ado...

Two coats of OPI Kiss Me At Midnight from the Mariah Carey Holiday Liquid Sand Collection. Frosted Ice Blue.

Kiss Me At Midnight has restored my love of blue polish. It. Is. Brilliant. The vivid blue base is reminiscent of all things winter; and the large silver glitter throughout adds just the right amount of sparkle. From looking at the bottle alone, I thought ooh, I like that...; then I put it on and it was such an intense feeling of L-O-V-E - I could barely bring myself to remove it for my next mani, and that never happens.

Two coats of OPI It's Frosty Outside from the Mariah Carey Holiday Liquid Sand Collection. Frosted Icy Silver.

It's Frosty Outside is basically the epitome of holiday polish colors - it's like wearing tinsel on your nails. The mix here is finely ground silver glitter {don't worry, it's easy to remove}, with hexagonal silver sequins tossed in to really make it sparkle. This one is hyper shimmery; so if you like a lot of nail bling, It's Frosty Outside is sure to please.

Two coats of OPI Emotions from the Mariah Carey Holiday Liquid Sand Collection. Coal Black.

I. Love. It. Emotions is proof that all holiday polish collections need a black, coal-like shade. This one is flat black {though it does contain somewhat undetectable glitter pieces}. No shimmer. No sparkle. Just a textured matte that is spectacular. If this is the type of coal that Santa left in stockings, you would surely welcome it. Truth.


FINAL THOUGHTS:
Like with the Mariah Carey Holiday 2013 Liquid Sand Mini Trio # 2 Dark; I only bought this trio for one color: Kiss Me At Midnight - which remains my favorite. It's Frosty Outside is gorgeous for the winter season. I feel as if I would have appreciated it more had I not been burned out by the influx of silver shades I had already been seeing / wearing for a month or two prior to trying it out; but it's still gorgeous. Emotions comes in at number two as my fave in this trio because it is just. so. chic.

Of the two trio sets, I feel as if # 1 Light was more focused on champagne-like, party-apropos neutral hues; whereas this trio {# 2 Dark} fell more towards winter / New Year's shades. Neither trio was overly-holiday due to the fact that they lacked the typical reds and greens; which is why I feel I liked both of them so much - they are perfect for year-round. I highly recommend this trio - especially if you're looking for a good mix of shades with an interesting finish.
