Before i move onto the swatches i am going to say a foreword about all 4 of these polishes so i don't repeat myself. All 4 i found were on the thick side, not unworkable by any means though. They were all fantastic coverage...2 coaters, but i used 3. Dry time was definitely longer on these, but not silly dry time. Now onto the swatches, i have shown you both without top coat and with top coat.
GET YOUR NUMBER. Omg what can i say, this is the one i was most excited about and the one that blew me away. My pictures can never do this justice! Without the topcoat the effect is one i adore, its matte and sparkly at the same time, its just wow! Worn alone this is a lot lighter in colour, the holographic glitters sparkle against the grittiness. Add a topcoat and it completely changes the look of the polish....a deep beautiful blue where the holo comes to life...all traces of the 'sand' gone...absolutely stunning. This is without a doubt my favourite of the collection and will go down as one of my must haves for this year!
CANT LET GO. Awww one of my favourite songs! This is the purple glitter number of the bunch, very very pretty with cute purple shiny hex glitter. This one reminded of GTN by the way it dried, very pretty and just had this little something else that makes it stand out. With topcoat, again the polish was transformed into a deeper more vibrant purple..again it turned smooth as a button with generous topcoat. Totally stunning polish!
So there we have it! Opi in my opinion have totally outdone themselves here. The liquid sands are not something i have seen before with any other textured polish, let alone be as pretty even without topcoat... can only hope they show the same imagination for upcoming collections. Even when these nails were totally dry they didn't feel half as gritty as they look and removal wasn't as bad as anticipated. My favourite is no surprise, get your number is my pick of the collection....but each are in their own right worthy of a place in my beautiful collection!
