I'm just going to jump straight to the point and say I grabbed 2 of the OPI Liquid Sand polishes from the Mariah Carey Collection that came out right before Christmas: OPI Get Your Number, and Can't Let Go. I also picked up Sprung (a cool looking brown/rose/gold shade) from that collection as well. I was originally going to pass on these... but who am I trying to kid? Now I want to run back to Trade Secrets and pick up the 2 liquid sands I left behind. lol.
So lets just tackle the elephant in the room, yes it has texture! yes it's matte! I'm still not sure if that's even a good thing or not? but like the magnetic & crackle nail polish stage, this liquid sand is new, fun and exciting... so for now I'm digging it!
I love how this shade seems to be so light absorbing, yet the glitters are still reflective (and holographic I might add!). Its an oxymoron, but until you see it on the nail in real life, it's hard to describe!
I found the even though the polish has a rough texture, it applied evenly, and wasn't that distracting. There were no large stray pieces of glitter to get your hair/clothing caught on. Its like the glitter is dense enough to create a whole new raised surface of glitter, which as a result is: smooth with a gritty feel... am I starting to ramble?

Close up of the texture!
I'd love to know what you guys think of these Liquid Sand polishes! I'm on the fence still, but I am totally sold on Get Your Number. Its medium blue base & holo glitter have pulled me in, but the interesting finish has me enamoured.
Have a great Sunday folks!
