Black Liquid Sand

The OPI Mariah Carey Liquid Sand set includes “Get Your Number”, “Can’t Let Go”, “The Impossible”, and “Stay the Night”.  This design features the intriguing black polish with magenta glitter called “Stay the Night”.

Black-Liquid-Sand

For this design I applied two layers of FingerPaints “Bid on It Berry” on the middle finger and thumb.  Once that was dry I laid down nail art tape in two stripes down the nail.  Then I applied two coats of the liquid sand enamel to those nails, back to back as quickly as possible.  As soon as the second coat was on, I pulled the tape off, revealing the berry-colored polish beneath.  On the other 6 nails I applied three coats of the liquid sand enamel, allowing each one to dry thoroughly before applying the next.  Later, I applied a thin layer of top coat.

I have used several of OPI’s Liquid Sand polishes so far, and they are really nice.  They apply evenly and dry more quickly than I expected.  My only complaint is that the “liquid sand” appears slightly white after the polish is thoroughly dry.  I think you’re not supposed to apply top coat so that you won’t smooth over the texture, but I found that a thin layer of top coat fixed the whiteness issue while retaining the textured feel of the polish.  I hope you can see that in the photo.
