NOTD: OPI The Impossible

Today I have another one of OPI's Liquid Sand shades to show you. 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.

Again, I wore this for a day before I added topcoat and it wore great. I absolutely loved it so much more with topcoat, it is gorgeous.

I do want to note that I do not think I got a single piece of star glitter in my bottle of The Impossible. Now, maybe that is because it's a mini bottle and there was just less of a chance of getting some in there? After I did all 10 fingers with 3 coats and didn't get one, I turned the bottle every which way and search to see if there was any in there and I did not find a single piece. A bit of a disappointment.

Overall, I really liked the Liquid Sand polishes. I love being able to change the look of my polish on the second day, and adding a topcoat is a fast and easy way to do that.

Pin It!

lol. I don't like star shaped glitter, so I would be happy if my bottle didn't have any in it. ;) Great swatches!
