Upon reader request, I decided to order The impossible, one of the liquid sand polishes from the Mariah Carey OPI collection. Yeah, sometimes I do that for my readers
I was very much on the fence about these polishes. Would I like them. Would they be horrible to remove. Would they just look ridiculous. Would I hate the texture. Well, I figured no better way to find out than to try, and here I am, wearing 3 coats of The Impossible.
Actually, the texture isn’t that bad. It’s not as if you’re wearing sand paper on your nails, it’s more like rough wallpaper. The dry time was less than I expected too – I am very biased against polish I can’t just top off with SV, because I had bad experience with ManGlaze Mayo, and that just made me too sad.
The color of The Impossible is the only one I found appealing so far, even though now I am pondering if I should maybe try the black-and-red one too… I decided to take this polish for coffee. So on a fine Saturday, The Impossible and I went for an afternoon of proper Viennese coffee.
It was very, very cold that day – minus 11 degrees! The scarf I’m wearing is one of these things I would have never bought for myself, but as it was bought by dear J., I didn’t have to think about it. It is actually one of those pieces that I love and wear a lot – especially when it is this cold! It is from Uniqlo.
The cardigan (yes, I took off my jacket in the cold! for you!) is from H&M, my first red piece, and I love it. The pants are from WE, the boots are from Oysho. What you see on my lips is a metallic red lipstick (what do you call those lip products that come in the same pans as eyeshadows? They aren’t sticks technically!), that I recently re-discovered and absolutely adore. Blush, foundation and eyebrow thingy are also from Inglot (I’m a faithful customer once I find something I like), mascara from Chanel. In this last picture you can see how vivid the color of The Impossible is. I was smitten by it – what do I care about the texture, if something looks as if it glows from the inside. So, all in all, I can say that buying this particular polish was a good choice. Also, the chipping only started after a day, so that was later than I expected. I’ll have to think about the other polishes from this line now…
