OPI liquid sand in Stay the Night.

I gotta admit, I thought a textured polish with a matte finish would be the weirdest thing ever & Id for sure want a top coat but this is really cool. it's not so textured/rough that it will catch on clothes (verdict is out on hair yet lol) but it has depth. and the glitter lends it some shine. I have 2 other colors to try once this mani wears out its welcome.

2 coats of Estee Lauder Hot Spell. With low temps dipping back down into the 30's this weekend, I will need something to remind me of warmth.

So after 15 hours of this stuff - here's my thoughts:

It's not a true "matte" finish, it's more of a satin finish which I prefer. I like the texture. This stuff is a fairly new line from what I understand. One blog described this color as embers in a dying fire and I think that's pretty accurate. Did not catch on my hair in the shower last night. When it's wet it's very shiny. This color took 3 coats to get to this shade of black. I am concerned about wear time without a topcoat, especially since nail polish on me usually chips within 2 days, sometimes sooner. But I used a grabby basecoat and with the texture and glitter I hope it is really stuck to my nails. Bet it's a PITA to take off! When I try the other 2 colors I'll post pics. I ordered a 4 pack of minis from AveYou and the pink shade got to me shattered so I was pretty irritated by that since it was the color I was 2nd most excited about trying, and I've never had a single issue with AveYou. But not irritated enough to send the entire thing back. I suppose if I want to try that one bad enough I will order it separately. I can already tell I don't like the mini-size bottles. Really hard to work with.

What an awesome deal, CurliLocks! I have polish that I've been hanging on to for years that need to be chucked.

I was thinking about Opal, too, but I'm such a sucker for pastels and neutrals. Here's what I went with:


Godiva (Pixie Dust Collection)

Julie

Portia

Marley

Minka

Harley

Wednesday

Zuza

Harley
FWIW, Harley is my favorite nail polish. Neutral, but not a traditional neutral. A true gray that doesn't lean blue like most grays do on me.

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue with Hard Candy Black Tie Optional. Pacific Blue is the stinkiest polish I own. Smells like nail polish + sulfur. I've read bright blues smell like that because of the pigment.

Base coat + 2 coats of Essie Bikini So Teeny. I have not made it to top coat and clean up yet. I am debating accent nails.
