Today I have my final swatch of the OPI Liquid Sand nail polish I picked up, with Stay The Night (the black one). You can check out the other 2 I reviewed: Get Your Number (blue) and Can't Let Go (purple). I grabbed this one solely based on rave reviews from other bloggers (I'm lookin' at you Marta!)
Stay the night is a funky liquid sand (read: textured) nail polish. It has an almost black base with hot pink glitter sparkling though. To many this is the stand out star of the Mariah Carey Collection. To me however, it reminds me of cigarette ash... Sorry, SORRY! I know, rude! But I can't UN-associate this. To make matters worst, I made meatballs the day I wore this mani... and I couldn't get over how germy these liquid sands really are... just sayin'...Sorry, I hope I didn't just ruin it for everyone.
...they're still cool to look at right?
And as with the previous Liquid Sand polishes, Stay The Night is matte with super sparkly glitter. The pink and dark grey/black make a really interesting contrast.The finished look is very of-the-moment and eye catching, it also has an air of sophistication (lol I had to Google the spelling of sophistication... how unsophisticated of me). The shade is not really all that bad, but just not my style. I much prefer the bright, fun, and colourful liquid Sands.
Application was similar to the others, 3 coat and you're good to go. I ha no issues of note... Although I DID accidentally smudge and wipe off most of the polish my pinkie due to my clumsiness. But the fauly was my own, not the polishes.
In the blurry middle picture, you can see how the pink sparkles & shines from the base. Its pretty cool to see in real life.
I'm super curious to see what you guys think of this colour, along with the rest of the texture trend that seems to be taking off?
My personal opinion, I think its a flash in the pan, and will be outta style by this time next year. I keep saying that I love it, but I think I just love new & exciting nail polish... Know what I mean?
Thanks for reading my review :)
Have a great day everyone,
