OPI Liquid Sand - Stay the Night :D

Hello nail lovers,
I'm very excited about today's post. When I first saw the new liquid sand texture I didn't quite know what to make of it. But the more I saw it the more it intrigued me. If Stay the Night didn't make me fall head of heels in love than I'd just dismiss it as a passing trend.

 Well I'll tell you... I've fallen in love <3

I applied two coats over Seche Clear base coat and it was perfectly opaque. The formula is a little on the watery side so my application was a bit sloppy. I use an eyeliner brush to clean out my cuticles and although it was stubborn to tidy up, like most glitters, it wasn't nearly as bad as I expected.

It applies watery, but dries fairly quickly to a matte gritty finish. It is so addicting to touch. Not scratchy, just sandy and pleasing. I feel like I could light matches off of these babies! 
Despite this polish being matte the pink glitter still shines through! It's beautiful and mysterious. I read one blogger write "like embers in a fire, if embers were pink" and she was right. (sorry, I read so many blogs, totally forget which one it was)

If you think this looks even half interesting, try it out! You may be surprised. I think textured matte glitter may be the most exciting nail trend in along time. And I'm so happy that other brands are jumping on the band wagon. Like Zoya! My go-to brand. I'm impatiently awaiting their Pixie Dust collection. They all look so amazing. I'm already planning gradients <3

What do you think of this trend? Will you try it? Any other brands coming out with interesting versions?

In a few days I'll post and let you know how the tip wear and removal goes.(wish me luck :S)

Have a good night and a great manicure!


  1. Looks so good on you. I'm diggin the texture. I want one of these so bad!! But I promised myself I'd wait till February for my next shipment :(

  2. Thanks D! I'm loving the black/pink.
    Yes, waiting is probably a good idea. :) Then you'll really REALLY want them. And I believe Zoya's will be available on NPC mid Feb.

  3. I've been eyeing that black and pink polish for a while! Looks really cool :) I might pick it up when I place my order for the Zoya pixie dust polishes.
