TIOT: OPI Liquid Sand "The Impossible"

Hi again! 2nd post of the day, I almost skipped doing this weeks Try It On Tuesday but I felt like a bad blogger even considering it. LOL I'm going to make it a very quick one though, I have so much to get done for the rest of the weeks posts since I fell behind over the weekend. Since I will be super  busy next weekend I'm trying to get some posts scheduled. 

I picked up a min set of OPI Liquid Sand's a few weeks ago and haven't had the chance to swatch them so when I needed a quick out the door mani I decided to give it a shot. No base coat, no top coat, it worked out well for a fast mani. When I got back home I added a matte and glossy top coat to one nail each just for comparison.   

 The Impossible...
...has a pinkish red base with some purple hex and (supposed to be) stars.

As you can see there isn't a star in sight. I didn't see a single one through the bottle and I fished but still no stars. Oh well, I'm not big on star glitter anyway. Application, aside from trying to find the stars, was great! What you see here is 2 coats. Dry time was really fast as well. I really wish I could show you all of the sparkle in this beauty. There is so much that when I was at dinner I kept staring at it and my hubby was being ignored! LOL I also love that they are textured but not annoyingly so. I prefer smooth finishes to my mani so I was thinking this would make me crazy, however the texture in this is smooth and not abrasive so you don't have to worry about it bothering you. I have already removed it, so I can do more swatching, and removal was actually much easier than your average glitter. I can't wait to try the rest!! 

Have you tried Liquid Sand yet? What are your thoughts on the textured polishes?
Tomorrow is F in the ABC Challenge, so make sure to come back and see that! Goodnight loves!

  1. I was pretty stoked about OPI bringing out this collection because I feel like it's the first time a mainstream company decided to up their game and bring out a little more to their glitter polish. I LOVE star glitter though, so I'd be pretty pissy if my bottle didn't have stars. Haha.

    1. I was excited about this too, this and zoya pixie dust. I'm not crazy about the stars so the fact that they're missing isn't a huge loss for me, but st the same time it is disappointing that they're missing since they should be there. I wonder if it's a problem with the minis.

    2. It may be a mini thing. I'm super excited to try the Zoya Pixie Dust collection too!

  2. Totes not feeling this line at all....I do like it best alone with no top coat, but I don't get the attraction of having sand paper on your nails, is it just me or would it not catch on everything?!?!? I love your shorties!! Your nails look fab every length, so flippin jeally!!!!

    1. LOL, I knew that you wouldn't be crazy about this. Actually the texture isn't the catchy kind. It was quite smooth for being textured. I was worried it would be getting caught on mu clothes and in my hair but it didn't catch once!
