Can't Let Go (of my Liquid Sands)


**all items purchased by me

Time for another nail post.  Today's polish of choice is OPI's Liquid Sand texture polish in Can't Let Go from the Mariah Carey collection.  This is actually the 2nd time I've worn it, but the first time I didn't manage to get pictures of it before messing it up cleaning something.  I'm loving how each of the Liquid Sands has their own look - different types, sizes and shapes of glitter.  I can't wait for the next installment of them to come out in a couple months or so!

On to the nails!  I don't remember if I used base coat under this since it was on the nails at the beginning of the month.  If I did, it was Bridge the Ridge.  Of course, no topcoat - but you could put it on if you want.  If you do choose to add topcoat to get rid of the texture, I'd suggest Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat.

2 coats of Can't Let Go.  These pictures are under my usual lamp:
Can't Let Go is a pretty medium purple polish with some shiny matching purple hex glitters sprinkled in.  The texture, while you feel it, I don't think it's enough to catch on anything in my experience.  The polish went on well with no need for fishing for the hex glitters.  Drying time is a bit slow, but since you don't use a quick drying top coat, that's to be expected.  I've gotten different wear times each time I've worn a Liquid Sand, but for me it always depends on how much kitchen chores need to be done...and I've always had problems with polish sticking well to me.

 And believe it or not, sunlight (through the window) pictures!

Like I said earlier, I can't wait for the next batch of Liquid Sands to be released!  I bought 3 of the 4 from the Mariah Carey collection - the one with stars did not attract me - plus the one from the Oz collection and I plan on getting probably all of the Bond Girls collection (6) and then there's 3 more in the Fall collection coming... If I keep going at this rate, I'll have a whole drawer full of textured polishes. :-)

Did you get any of the Liquid Sand polishes?  How about the PixieDust ones from Zoya?
