NOTD: OPI Stay the Night

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.

This is matte black with shiny pink glitter. Definitely my favorite of the set so far (I still have The Impossible left to swatch).

3 coats, no topcoat

I wore the shade with no topcoat for 24 hours and again got no chipping and minimal tipwear.

I actually think I love it even more with topcoat- it's absolutely glowing!

This shade was a bit harder to remove, and I actually probably should have just used the foil or Reesa method. I used my scrubby tub and had to scrub quite a bit on each finger- it probably took me at least twice as long to remove as the purple and blues liquid sand shades did.

Come back tomorrow for swatches of The Impossible!
