OPI Get Your Number. This is a blue jelly with medium sized holographic glitter. This one was the most sheer of the set. Actually, using more coats of this polish causes it to lose the textured effect. I used 3-coats here and that's probably why it looks darker than the other swatch photos I've seen.
OPI Can't Let Go. This is a grape purple with sparse purple hex glitter throughout. This was one of my favorites out of the set because I'm a huge purple fan!
OPI The Impossible. This is a pink coral with pink hexagon and smaller pink glitter throughout. My camera was picking it up more orange but it's definitely more pink in real life. By the time I swatched this one, I realized that only 2-coats is needed (says so on the box). The matte gritty texture is more visible with this color.
I was trying to pick up the pink color. The true color is a cross between these two photos. Sorry, need a better camera.
OPI Stay the Night. This polish was the one I was most excited about to try. This is a sheer black jelly base with hot pink microglitter. The textured finish makes it look like lava. Stay the Night is my favorite out of the set.
I then added a coat of American gelous and a coat Poshe to show how they look with topcoat:
I think the look great either with or without topcoat.
Oddly, I liked the Liquid Sand glitters. I thought that the matte textured finish was something different and unique that I've never seen before with polish. Although, I'm not sure how the average polisher will embrace them. My top picks are The Impossible and Stay the Night.
As for removal, they were like any other glitter polish sandy, gritty and glitter got everywhere. I used a cross between foil method and peel off base coat method to remove.
I purchased this 4-piece mini set from Peninsula Beauty for $12.95 USD. Full size bottles retail for $8.50. These are in-stores now.
What do you think of the "textured" glitters?
Will you be trying any?
Thanks for reading!
