OPI Liquid Sand The Impossible

It's been a while since I posted my last entry. I've been busy... But I'm so surprised and amazed how the blog is still alive and getting new visitors! Thank YOU!! There's no better motivation than having more readers to share my passion with. :) It helps to just have something published out here so people can search for it and check it out, even if it's not regularly updated. I need to do a better job at that.

I got an iPhone5 for Christmas and since then, I've been building up my Instagram content. But like my blog, I'm guilty to say that it, too, has a lot a backlog. I guess it's never too late to start to catch up! Little by little, I aim to get up-to-date. I downloaded this Blogger app and I hope that it can help me do a better job at keeping up with my nail posts. This is my first entry using this app, so I hope it comes out well. :)

On to my NOTD! This is The Impossible by OPI from the Mariah Carey collection. It's the first collection that came out with OPI's Liquid Sand formula. It has a very interesting texture. Can you tell from the photo? It has tons of glitter in it including stars(!!!), which is primarily the reason why I had to have it! It dries matte and you're not supposed to put topcoat on it, to keep the texture as intended. You can search for other swatches online if you're curious to see what it would look like with a topcoat on. But I like it as it is, and it's actually convenient that I can skip a step. :) It dries pretty fast too! This is two coats.


The picture above is the most color accurate. But in different lighting, you'll notice that it can look kind of wet and you can see how the mix of glitter works its magic!

 
Even if I had to fish out those stars for all of eternity, it's a solid buy! I bought this from Czarina, over at the The Nail Shoppe. This is the only one that I really liked after seeing multiple swatches of the whole Mariah Carey collection. But I'm sooo excited for the Disney Oz collection which features the OPI Liquid Sand - What Wizardry is This? And also for the Zoya Pixie Dust collection, which I'm tempted to buy a whole set of. Hehe! If ever, it'll be my first time to purchase an entire collection of polish! Anyway, I think this could be all the rage in 2013. Can't wait to get my hands on more of them!!

Have you tried anything from OPI Liquid Sand or Zoya Pixie Dust? How do you like it? I'd love to know! :)

    1. Yey! More comments! Thanks for stopping by!! I love comments! Haha!

      There's so much more to be said about this polish! But I wasn't too happy with the Blogger app in my phone hehe there's no way for me to fix the layout. But it's good enough for a simple post, I guess. New comments and followers are really motivating for me to get right on track! Thanks!!
