So I know I'm way behind in the textured nail polish trend but I have actually owned one of the O.P.I liquid sands since they were first released last year. The Mariah Carey collection had four liquid sands of which I own one but now kinda want the rest!
This is 'Get your number' and its a gorgeous, multi-dimensional blue. The picture is of just one coat on the nails and it provides pretty darn good opacity for a jelly type base. I'm also quite pleased at how neat this hand is as my right hand is my dominant hand *pats self on back* I think my perseverance is starting to pay off.
The polish dries reasonably quickly to a mostly matte finish. There is a variety of different glitters within it and it has a holographic sparkle to it aswell.
In the photo above, I have used the flash to try and capture the holo. The index finger and ring finger have seche vite topcoat applied to give a glossier finish. I didn't mind the texture feel of the polish but I love the effect adding the topcoat had, it was almost as though it was lit from within.
We went out for tea and the lighting was quite good so I couldn't resist sneaking a wee pic! Again, this shows off the holo a bit more and I really feel like the holo adds an extra dimension.
All in all, I really like this polish although I am slightly biased when it comes to OPI! I couldn't stop looking at my nails the whole time I was wearing this and the texture was something I quite enjoyed. It didn't look too gimmicky either, which is good if you just want a slight break away from the usual mani but don't want to go too wild!
Have you tried any of the liquid sand polishes?
How do you feel about textured nails?
