Hello Lovely Ladies,
Today I would like to show you my swatches of Pink Yet Lavender from the upcoming OPI Mariah Carey collection:
OPI describes Pink Yet Lavender as a pink glitter with lavender shimmer that has superstar shine!
(ONE coat over two coats of OPI Funny Bunny)
I really enjoy glitter lacquers suspended in a clear base because you can layer them over ANY base and create countless combinations. Pink Yet Lavender is one of the softest and most feminine glitters in my collection. The larger pink glitters are delicate, super pastel, and metallic. The smaller lavender glitter is mixed in with holographic glitter bits that add a diamond-dust like feel to this polish. This truly is a stunning, soft, layering polish!
(outdoor photo in semi-sun… my hope was to show the holographic glitter bits… you can spot some, there are more IRL).
A few people have asked me how this polish compares to Essie A Cut Above. While I do not have a swatch comparison photo for you, I do own both shades and I can say that OPI Pink Yet Lavender is a much paler glitter with small holographic bits, while the Essie shade is more copper-pink and more densely packed with the larger glitter.
The OPI Mariah Carey collection will be available in January 2013.

Do you like Mariah Carey’s songs? Is that, will that be, a determining factor in your choice to buy these shades?
Thoughts on this super-soft glitter?
