Hey Everyone!! I'm back after a super hectic December!! Let's start it off with six polishes from OPI's Mariah Carey 2013 Holiday Collection. I'm sorry these are a tad late, but I just didn't have time last month.... The six I'm sharing with you today are reds and/or brownish. I wanted to post these first so you could see how close each color compares to the others...
Cute Little Vixen:
OPI describes Cute Little Vixen as a "deep red- violet". Yep, that pretty much sums this one up. Application was great and full opacity was reached with two coats.
Underneath the Mistletoe:
Underneath the Mistletoe is easily one of my personal favorites from this collection. (I actually wore this one Christmas Day). Underneath the Mistletoe has a candy-apple red jelly-like base filled with teeny tiny micro red and silver glitters. I used two coats in the above three pics.
In My Santa Suit:
In My Santa Suit is another traditional red that's highly pigmented and dries shiny and bright. Again, I used two coats of In My Santa Suit.
Sleigh Ride For Two:
I really thought I'd love Sleigh Ride For Two because it's described as a "chocolate brown" (which is one of my favorite polish colors), but this one has some red shimmer that really throws things off for me. I guess I'd just prefer a "cooler brown." There were no problems with application, though. Pictured above is two coats!!
All I Want for Christmas (is OPI):
All I want for Christmas (is OPI) is another personal favorite of mine! It's just a red creme with gorgeous shine and awesome formula. If you're looking for a basic staple red... I'd highly suggest All I Want for Christmas (is OPI)!! Pictured above is two coats. (OPI describes this as a "maroon", but I'm just not seeing it)
Visions of Love:
Visions of Love is to die for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In the bottle, I never would have thought I'd love this one so much. Even after the first coat, I was skeptical as the formula is a bit thin. After three generous coats, you have this dark vampy burgundy that's amazing!!! (Sorry for the stained cuticles.. after swatching all these dark colors, my cuticles suffered a bit)
