Love this! Am enjoying the new textured-polish craze & this is my latest purchase. All winter I've been wanting a black base with fuchsia glitter that sparkles through & Forever21's version failed (too much black, fuchsia glitter hardly visible). Finally OPI comes out with this version - personally I'm not a Mariah Carey fan but I love this shade. Funny, I've heard the glitter color described anywhere from fuchsia to red to purple (!?) but to me it looks fuchsia (or magenta, if you like). I love how the black texture dries matte yet the colored glitter sparkles through. Looking forward to wearing it shiny w/topcoat in the future, but right now I'm loving the matte texture trend. I would buy this again.
This polish looks so pretty in the bottle. Black liquid sand w/red glitter. Being a Mariah fan & the Ulta associate raving over the polish, I got it. The liquid sand effect doesnt really give nails much of a sheen since top coat isnt needed, but it was too opaque & matte looking for me. It reminded me of asphalt w/red sparkles. But I do love Sprung & The Impossible from the Mariah collection. continued >>
For some reason I don't feel like Mariah had anything to do with actually choosing the colors in her line nor do I feel she would ever wear them....... But that's besides the point. Matte. Sparkle. Bumpy to the touch. That's two too many gimmicks in my polish!! I can handle matte. I can handle sparkle. But rough too?!? And all three together!?!? No way. If you want to make it shiny and smooth you can put three - yes three!- coats of topcoat..... I say don't bother! This trend won't last half of the time that the shatter polish did.
I'm pretty much in love, this amazed me the way the glitter flecks show through. I found it to be a lil distracting, cause i just wanted to keep looking at it all day. It took three coats to get an opaque finish which made it quite thick and chipped/peeled easily. That's the down side. The texture didn't bother me at all. Its no different than that of a glitter polish. Not a Mariah fan, but adore this polish, despite its lack of longevity.
I like the interesting texture of the product. Though it can be difficult to apply as its matte (chunky and all..) but i really like the finish. Actually i like it more when few days has passed and some of the pink glitter in it fades and become silver, the nail polish colour just got more special hahaha.
Staying power is good, it doesn't chip (95% of my nail polish chip on me), just wears off at tips in few days, naturally. That also means removal is slower, hee.
I like :D
Not a huge fan of Mariah's but DAYUMMM!!!! Girl knows good polish!!! I'm totally smitten by Stay The Night!! Color is perfect!! Slighty vampy with little flecks of red glitter peeking out just to give it a little burlesque-esque feel. The texture is AWESOME!! Not at all like otheer chunky glitter polishes, this one has an interesting feel to it. Couldnt stop touching my nails. Takes 3 coats for full coverage. Excellent product!
This polish dries to a sandy finish. It's different from all other polishes I've tried. The instructions said to apply base coat and then nail polish, no need to apply top coat. This polish dries to be a dark charcoal / black sandy rough base with red glitter. I personally like the wide OPI brushes, as it applied nice and even. The formula dries fairly quickly and I feel my nails are harder too. I am pretty rough on my nails and this polish has good stay power, has yet chipped and it's been 4 days. Like the previous reveiwer, you'll need some elbow greasy when it comes to taking it off as with most glitter polishes. If you are looking for a dark Winter shade with a subtle glitter catching the light, I would recommand getting his polish.
The most interesting polish texture, it indeed dries to a sand-like feel and look. Stay the Night is a black polish with red glitter in. When it's dry, there is no shine at all except from the red glitter that stands out. I love the feel of this polish. It transforms into a regular black polish with red glitter when a top coat is applied, and it requires more than one coat to be slick because it just swallows it immediately upon application. Very cool concept, and I suppose it is customizable due to the dried texture. One could make it very dry or put as much top coat to get it to look how you want it. I like and chose this color over the other Liquid Sand ones because of the red glitter and how it stands out. It takes some time to remove but that's the way it is with most glitter polishes.
