NOTD: OPI Get Your Number

Today I have another one of OPI's Liquid Sand shades to show you. As we discussed yesterday, one of OPI's latest innovations is "Liquid Sand", which is basically a matte, textured glitter meant to be worn without topcoat. There are four shades of liquid sand released as part of the Mariah Carey collection. I picked up the mini set at Ulta to check what I thought.

As you can see from the blurry pic, there is some seriously gorgeous holo glitter in  there that is so so pretty in the sun.
 
This shade did need three coats to reach full opacity, especially at the tips. Again, I wore the shade with no topcoat for 24 hours and again got no chipping and minimal tipwear.

I love this both ways- with and without topcoat. It's eye-catching.

I also wanted to speak on removal- although it took a bit longer than a normal creme polish, this bumpy glitter came off just fine in my scrubby tub. I was afraid I might need to use the foil or Reesa method, but I had no problems getting every last piece of glitter off without scraping or having t o work too hard.
 
So far I am loving these Liquid Sand shades.
