It’s pretty well known among my family and friends that I am a nail polish addict. There isn’t a color I won’t wear or a trend I won’t try.
So I was very excited to get to try out a couple of polishes from my favorite brand, OPI, as supplied by Beauty Stop Online!
The polishes I received were:
Stay the Night, from the Mariah Carey collection
Matte Top Coat
Stay the Night is a Liquid Sand color, which means when the polish is applied, it finishes with a textured feel and appearance like sand. Stay the Night is a black with pink flecks of glitter.
For some reason I could not accurately capture the Liquid Sand finish in a photo…I tried different kinds of lighting and they all came out blurry
But the effect is really cool, and I like that you don’t have to apply a top coat! And for polish without a top coat, it stayed chip free for a while…about 4 days. Be warned though, the texture makes the polish a bit harder to remove than normal. I will definitely be trying to get more Liquid Sand shades!
The Matte Top Coat is an awesome idea and something I had been desiring for a while! The idea is that it’s a top coat that basically takes away the shine of a regular nail polish…mattifying it. This is big for fall.
Here is my polish shade before the Matte Top Coat:
And after applying one coat of OPI Matte Top Coat:
As you can see, the shine is totally gone! The top coat is kind of like a glaze. It can completely change your polish look. I love it. Didn’t give much chip protection though, but that may have been due to the base color I was wearing (I haven’t had much luck with L’Oreal polishes).
You can find a ton more OPI shades and other products at Beauty Stop Online! And they also carry a wide variety of items for all your hair, makeup, and cosmetic needs.
