Generally speaking my idea of a perfect manicure means perfect shiny glossy nails, I prefer creme consistencies and don't tend to reach for glitters and sparkles so what attracted me to the new OPI Liquid Sand collection, I'll never know but weirdly I absolutely love it. Truthfully, they were a bit of an impulse buy at the duty free on our way to Greece the other week, I had to stop myself from trying them out on the plane and stinking out the cabin!
First of all I tried out Stay The Night which is a black polish with flecks of red and black glitter, this polish is my absolute fave. Of course you could add a top coat if you're not a matt fan. Alternatively, I find that this polish lasts a remarkable ( for me!) four days, if I get bored half way through then I change the look to a glossy polish with a coat of top coat.
I couldn't wait to try out the other shades so I used my poor lil sis as a guinea pig. I love all four shades but Stay The night ( black) and The Impossible ( red) are my stand out shades in this collection. This particular set comes as mini bottles which I think is a great way to try out a shade before committing to a whole bottle, which I rarely use up anyway.
Have you tried matte polishes? What should I try next?
