Usually I wait when it comes to nail trends until the polishes are on sale, but I couldn't help myself when I saw the latest trend, Liquid Sand. After my $80 Ulta shopping spree I picked up this beauty right here,
Get Your Number by Opi.
Below is the difference between one and two coats. On the left is two and the right is one. And no, I did not take the picture with my mouth! I had a little help! I'm sure I would have accomplished an amazing feat if I had!
What worried me the most about this was not being able to use top coat. I am NOTHING without my Seche Vite top coat! Due to not having my precious top coat, I'm on my third day with this polish and I do see wear on the tips. It goes without saying that it's a but rough on the top, but again, after a few days it begins to smooth out a little bit. Overall I really like it, I know some people can't stand the roughness of it, but I welcome it because anyone with acrylic nails knows how difficult it is to itch a scratch with acrylics!
And, of course I had to try out a little nail art to see how it would go over the rough texture.
I was surprised to see that the black, which was Wet n Wild - Ebony Hates Chris turned out to be matte when it dried. It also was obviously texturized. That picture was taken 3 days after I first applied Get Your Number and you can sort of see a bit of wear on the tips.
In conclusion : I love me some liquid sand!
