OPI-Mariah Carey Liquid Sand Polish in Get Your Number

Hi dolls.  Here is what I am wearing on my nails today:
This is from OPI's Mariah Carey collection, in the Liquid Sand line.  These are formulated to be a gritty kind of glitter, meant to be worn without a topcoat.  

I am wearing Get Your Number, a blue based polish with holo glitter mixed in.  The polish is a bit sheer, which meant I had to do three to four coats to achieve this kind of opacity. 
I only got Get Your Number because I wasn't sure if I would like the texture on these polishes.  And the other three polishes weren't really calling my name anyways.  

I let it dry for about 10 minutes before deciding to slap on some topcoat.  I don't like gritty nails.   
I like this much better when I put topcoat on.  The holo glitter shows up better I think, and it sparkles so much more.  Glitter is meant to sparkle, right?  I think so.  

I don't think that I will be going back for any more of the liquid sand polishes from this line.  They just aren't my cup of tea.  I am eyeing up the pink shimmery polish though-I think it's called A Butterfly Moment.  I also picked up the pink glitter polish, Pink Yet Lavender.  

What do you think of the liquid sand polishes?  Are you on board?



  1. I'm not on board with the liquid sand polishes. I don't really like glitter polishes to begin with and I know I'd like these gritty glitter polishes even less. I've seen all of OPI-Mariah Carey liquid sand polishes swatched on various blogs and I just don't like them. I know I wouldn't like the texture on my nails.

    1. Yeah, that's how I was feeling about them too. I like glitter, but only with topcoat!
