OPI Mariah Carey Holiday 2013 Part 1

-Press Sample
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)
