What can I say? I gave in. I bought my first ever Liquid Sand polish by OPI. I wasn't planning on it. It happened completely by chance. I think I might chalk this one up to Ulta made me do it, and I got three times the points for doing it too. I had seen pictures of all San Francisco polishes and wasn't that impressed and I had heard that Ulta wasn't carrying the liquid sand colors. I went into Ulta not expecting to find the gorgeousness of this polish. I walked up to a display and to my surprise there were all three liquid sand colors. My first thought was they're great fall colors, but upon picking up the swatches I was blown away by this color.
I'm a sucker for a vampy color and this does not disappoint. It's a deep cool toned plummy purple loaded with silver, gold, and maybe even a little green shimmery goodness. Is that enough gushing for you? Nope, I didn't think so. I'm not usually one for textured nails. I like the look, but I never thought I would be able to pull it off. I tend to obsessively feel my nails if there's an imperfection and pick it until my polish ruined, and I thought this was going to be one of those polishes that ruined my nails. I'm more than happy to say that I was wrong. I'm even considering getting a couple more textured polishes when my No Buy is over.
OPI can be found in salons and Ulta's across the nation, and I've seen the San Francisco collection in three different stores. I think it's safe to say it's landed. Fairly recently OPI raised the price of their polish to around 9 dollars a bottle, but I've never met an OPI that wasn't worth the price.
