I have a little bit before I head out to rehearsal for my next show, so I figured I would do my nails. A couple of days ago, I picked up a couple of the Liquid Sand OPI colors from the Mariah Carey collection. So today's NOTD is one of those colors.
Natural Light, Overcast
OPI Stay the Night - 1 coat over Wet n' Wild Black Creme
Purple glitter in gritty black base.
First, if you're anything like me and you have to have a smooth finish on your nails, this will drive you NUTS. I'm the type that uses Gelous and Seche Vite copiously over any kind of glitter. As a nervous habit, I run my fingers over my nails and the smoothness is comforting (I'm weird, I know!)
I'm going to try to tough it out for a day or two to see what I think, but so far, its driving me insane that they're not smooth.
If you don't know about these liquid sand colors, they dry to a matte, gritty finish that literally feels and looks like colored sand.
I'm not entirely sure how I feel about these, but I don't like the texture so far. As a color, its really pretty and reminds me a lot of Julep Chloe as far as the type of color... purple glitter in the black. As a color, I love it, but I just can't get over the gritty. This is one nail fad that I'm pretty much hating!
Thanks for reading and putting up with my little rant.
