OPI Nail Lacquer - Silent Stars Go By
Now I never get excited by celebrity releases, there aren't many celebrities I'm that interested in and the ones I am interested in won't be releasing any collaborations with cosmetic companies. I do sometimes get a little snobby about this but last years OPI/Mariah Carey nail lacquers I just couldn't resist. I even found myself yet again going "I'm not a pink person but I have to have this", starting with Silent Stars Go By.
Now this isn't quite as pink as I had expected if you look at the contents of the bottle it looks a lot pinker, a proper baby pink. However the liquid sand takes the cuteness off and instead leaves with a gorgeously stunning textured rose gold mixed with silver. The particles really catch the light and I find the liquid sand effect is a lot more exciting than your basic glitter.
I love this colour, the effect is beautiful and it also dries relatively quickly - the perfect nail varnish. As with most effect nail varnishes chips are easy to touch up without looking uneven. The only issue is, like all these type of effect nail varnishes, a little more concentration is needed to remove them. Now it isn't too bad, as I've mentioned in a previous post it's best not to scrub just soak a cotton wool ball in nail varnish remover, hold it on the nail for around 30 seconds before trying to remove. A bit of a pain but worth it for this stunningly gorgeous nail varnish.
