I'm here today to show you what I got on my last trip to Sally's. I've heard about liquid sand nail polish not long ago and I thought (as a nail polish addict that I am) that I needed to try this out !
So I purchased the Mariah Carey mini set to be able to try out different colours.
The set comes with 4 mini bottles (a lot smaller than the China Glaze mini's!!) and the colours are called:
- The Impossible: Red-ish pink
- Can't let go: Purple
- Get your number: Turquoise blue
- Stay the night: Black with pnik glitter
First thoughts about these minis is that the colours are gorgeous. My least favourite is the black one but I really like the brightness of the other colours ! My favourite is probably the turquoise one.
They are a bit sheer so you will need 2 to 3 coats for a good opacity, other than that they dry quite fast in my opinion and are easier to remove than I thought they would be. Harder than standart nail polish but easiler than full on glitters !
The feel of "sandiness" is very weird, it really seems like you stuck sand on your nails ! Which is good since it's what it claims to be !
After wearing all of them on my nails I found that they don't tend to chip as quick as other nail polishes even thought I wasn't wearing any top coat, which is a big plus for me.
I've seen swatches of these with a top coat on but then you're loosing all idea of the sand feel to it.
It also has different size glitters in it for maximum shinny-ness !
Overall I think this product is very nice, I'd recommand buying the set of mini's to give them a try before purchasing the full sizes ! It's bright and fun for spring/summer and something different as it's textured ! I can't stopp running my fingers on my nails everytime I wear these :)
I hope you're all well and getting ready for some Easter treats !
