It seems that the textured ‘trend’ is still going on. I don’t mind, I love them 😀 So here’s Alcatraz… Rocks by OPI:This is the only textured polish that I’ve picked up from this collection. Not only because I think this is the prettiest one out of the three, but also because Jemma from Eeeek! Nail Polish! has made me buy it with her gorgeous swatches.
Good day lacquered friends!
I bet OPI’s Bond Girls Collection hasn’t passed your attention, right?! It consists of six brand new Liquid Sand shades. The ones that immediately caught my eye are Pussy Galore, Solitaire and this one, Jinx: Jinx is the orange/coral textured shade of the collection. I’m in love with this one. The formula is great. I used two coats here. A while back I showed you ANNY’s Desert Glam Collection which includes, among other, She’s amazing. As promised I compared the two to see how similar they are.Jinx is more coral while She’s amazing is darker with strong magenta undertones. No dupes, but I think when you have one you don’t need the other. What do you think? Which one do you prefer?I doubt whether I should pick up Pussy Galore and Solitaire too… Decisions decisions… Should I or not?
Thanks for stopping by 😀
First I have a confession to make. It was my intention to buy only one of the Liquid Sand shades that are part of OPI’s Mariah Carey Collection. So I did buy only one, Stay The Night. But then I saw many swatches of the three shades that I didn’t have and just can’t resist buying another one. Decision made… but then the hardest question: which one needed to become part of my stash? I chose The Impossible because I think it’s a great shade for Summer 😀
And here it is… taaadaaahhh:The Impossible is the fuchsia Liquid Sand shade. I’ve used two easy coats. The formula is lovely. It has very fine holographic glitter in it but also hexagons. There are even star sequins in the mix. I had a hard time ‘catching’ some stars on my brush but I managed to fish two of them out of the bottle. There’s one on the nail on my middle finger and one on my thumb nail 🙂 They all sink to the bottom. That doesn’t make this polish less pretty. I love it!
And here’s how it looks with two coats of Seche Vite:
One more…Unlike Stay The Night, which I also love with top coat, I love this one more how it’s meant to be, without top coat 😉
Did you know that all four Liquid Sand shades are part of my GIVEAWAY?!
Go try your luck 😉
OPI announced the launch of their spectacular soft shades inspired by the Disney movie “Oz The Great And Powerful“, including a new liquid sand shade!
Get ready for a trip where monkeys can fly, witches bewitch and a yellow path lead to the emerald city. The film tells the story of a relatively unknown illusionist who becomes the big powerful wizard of Oz.
OPI is super excited to begin the journey with Disney says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “The magic of Oz The Great And Powerful is the inspiration. This SoftShades Collection consists of three spectacular glitter polishes, white, gold and silver. Also found in this collection are three soft transparent shades, white, beige and pink. The “nude” trend will continue in 2013! These shades are great for brides too.”
The revolutionary technology of the new Liquid Sand shade, What Wizardy is This?, creates a special texture and matte finish with reflective particles on your nails. This rich taupe shade is created for the personage of James Franco, The Great Wizard Of Oz, which guarantees a cheeky appearance this Spring.
To create an extra sparkling look you can layer one of the glitter polishes over one of the nude shades.
What Wizardy Is This?
Don’t Burst my Bubble – Glints of Glinda – I Theadora You
Lights of Emerald City – When Monkeys Fly! – Which is Witch?
Note: as with all OPI’s, the polishes of this collection are DBP, toluene and formaldehyde free. And of course they all have a fantastic Pro Wide brush!
The Oz The Great And Powerful collection is available in stores from mid March 2013. There will also be a mini set available 😉
