Are you familiar with OPI's Liquid Sand finish? If not, here's a super-quick summary of it: It's textured polish. Think a glitter polish without topcoat, but chunkier. It has extra grit, like little grains of sand, and it has a bumpy, gritty, sandpaper-ish look once it dries. Got a basic understanding of it? Good, now check out the six new Liquid Sand colors (sent for review):
Get Your Number from the Mariah Carey collection.
The formula on these was very good. They apply evenly with zero effort and they dry very quickly. I have no complaints about the formula. All are opaque in two coats and that's what I'm wearing here. Removal is the same as any glitter polish, but the grit can be rough and scratchy on the nails if you don't let your remover soak on the nail long enough.
I'm still not in love with the liquid sand texture, but it's growing on me. I like these colors better than the previous ones. I'd choose Jinx and Vesper as my picks from the collection just for their beauty and uniqueness.
These six new shades will be available beginning May 2013 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Chatters, JCP Salons, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $9.00 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each nail lacquer.
