Swatch: OPI Silent Stars Go By

I won this polish in a giveaway. All opinions are my own.

Last week I won a giveaway at Shelby Lou Nails! I got a set of three mini OPI Liquid Sands from the Mariah Carey holiday collection. The collection as a whole isn't too exciting to me (do we need that many more red polishes??), but I had my eye on the Liquid Sands thanks to my love of texture!

The first one I tried on is Silent Stars Go By. This is a silvery blush-colored textured polish with lots of silver hexes thrown in.

OPI Silent Stars Go By, two coats.
I really liked the formula on this polish; it applied in thin, easy-to-control coats. It dried quickly without the aid of a topcoat. (I did wear a basecoat with this.)



I have to say, having tried several textured polishes from multiple brands, I think I prefer the neutral/nude ones over more colorful polishes--maybe because they look like natural stone with gems buried inside? Anyway, I'm a big fan of Silent Stars Go By; I think it would be great to wear to a classy holiday party!

  1. Gorgeous! I agree with you on the too many reds thing, too. I get that a lot of people (mostly older women) lean toward "normal" colors like reds and pinks, but I really wish OPI would release a collection with less than three or four reds for a change!

    1. At this point I'm wondering if it's even possible for OPI not to dupe itself when it comes to reds. The human eye can only distinguish so many shades...
