This textured nail manicure post featuring OPI Liquid Sand is brought to you by OPI.
Matte or shiny. I thought those were the only 2 finishes available, and an easy choice when it came to nail polishes. I hadn’t even considered texture on nails before. OPI’s Bond Girls Liquid Sand collection comes in 6 shades, and I had the pleasure of trying out the 3 below:
From left to right: Solitaire, Honey Ryder, Tiffany Case
This gritty, sandy nail polish from OPI has great consistency, and doesn’t require a topcoat (which would only defeat the purpose of the textured lacquer).
One of my favourite shades is Solitaire, which is white with white sparkles.
I plan on getting more creative with these OPI Liquid Sand colours over the summer. I think it would be fun to have a solid colour with a touch of this textured nail polish just on the tips, or painted in a diagonal line.
I’ve never had nail polish as vibrantly coloured as this before, but I really like it. What do you think of Tiffany Case?
I used 2 coats of OPI Textured Sand on my nails, which covered very well. I was surprised by how quickly it dried and by how long the polish lasted on my nails. To remove it, be sure to let the nail polish remover soak in for 30 seconds or so, like you might with other glittery polishes.
These six new shades will be available beginning May 2013 at a variety of salons. They sell for $9.00 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each nail lacquer. I was provided with the 3 polishes mentioned above, for this feature.
