Swatch and Review of OPI Stay the Night

I needed to take a bit of a break from all the nail art, so I have a swatch post for you today! I am slowly getting behind in the challenge, but I am still hopeful I can pull it together and finish all of them! I just hate putting out nail art I don't love, hence the pauses in nail art. Therefore, I have a beautiful swatch today! I took a trip to TJ Maxx just to see if they had my favorite strengthening base coat. I recently ran out, and sometimes they have it for a great price. I alternate between Essie Grow Stronger and OPI Nail Envy, so I was really excited to find Grow Stronger for only $4.99! It is usually $9 or $10 now. I also found an unexpected beauty OPI Stay the Night for only $3.99! I believe this is from the Mariah Carey Spring 2013 Collection. I only have sprung from that collection and for some reason this one never caught my eye until now. It is a textured black base with some red leaning pink glitter in it!






I know not everyone will love this, but I do! It reminds me of smoldering embers and I just feel a little more bad ass with it on! I like the textured polish, and I know some don't like that finish, but I am sure with some top coat it would be just as gorgeous! I find that top coating textured polishes like this bring out the glitter even more. I used three coats for full opacity. It did seem to take longer to dry than other Liquid Sands I've tried, but it was worth the wait. I've actually been wearing this for a few days and it has yet to chip. That is always a bonus. I hope you like these swatches! Hopefully I'll have some more nail art challenge nail art for you very soon! Thanks for reading!


  1. Wow. Okay, I generally stay away from anything with Mariah's name on it, but I may have to make an exception for this texture!

  2. Haha! Me too, it usually means stars and butterflies. This definitely is a little out of the box for her!

  3. This is pretty! I'm not crazy about the texture but the pink glitters look really cool within the black base!

  4. Put top coat on it!!! It. Looks. Incredible. Like it's glowing pinky-red through the black.

  5. Ouu I think I own this polish but I've never worn it! It's pretty! And after reading Keely's comment now I'm curious about what it looks like with top coat - I can only imagine!
