OPI Make Him Mine Review

OPI Make Him Mine

OPI Make Him Mine

This absolute beauty is from OPI’s holiday collection, the Mariah Carey Holiday 2013 range. And I am in love. I thought the red glitter polish (Underneath The Mistletoe) was pretty, but OPI Make Him Mine is a whole other kettle of glitter.

This is my first OPI Liquid Sand polish and I am not disappointed. The polish is surprisingly easy to apply, I was a bit worried as some glitters are thick, lumpy and difficult to apply. Add to that a matte finish and that’s sometimes a recipe for disaster. Not so with this polish. This needed 2 layers and there was no need for a particularly light hand or any placement of glitter. It dries completely matte and doesn’t take too long to dry (although I admit I did get bored waiting, I’ve been so spoilt by the speediness of Seche Vite!)

The colour is super pretty: A rose pink with hot pink, gold and silver glitters of various sizes.

Not only is this polish gorgeous to look at, I am obsessed with the texture. The rough, slightly gritty finish makes it oddly satisfying to run your fingers over.

I have so many nail varnishes in every colour under the sun, but it’s new and unusual things like this that stick in my mind. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but this has rocketed into one of my favourite polishes of all time.

Have you tried any of the OPI Liquid Sand polishes?

I was so intrigued when I saw these Matte Suede polishes. Textured finishes are going to continue to be big this year and this polish has definitely converted me to matte/textured finishes. The finish falls somewhere between a matte topcoat effect and the new liquid sand polishes.

As it is a matte finish nail varnish, these swatches are obviously shown without top coat. I like this effect but it was tricky to get a smooth finish, as the polish starts to turn matte very quickly so has a tendency to drag and go bumpy. You have to be quick and precise to avoid an annoying cleanup, which may put off some people.

What do you guys think of the matte suede finishes? Or textured finishes in general? Let me know in the comments!

I can’t find the Revlon Matte Suede collection anywhere online (except Amazon…) but you can find the current Revlon range HERE.
