Hey Everyone!! One of these nights I am going to get a complete, uninterrupted, night of sleep. It definitely wasn't last night. I could use a nap right now. Tomorrow is my mom's birthday but we are celebrating tonight because they are going on vacation tomorrow. I am looking forward to the yummy dinner and cake we have planned.
Today I have my first mani with one of the OPI Liquid Sand polishes.
This gorgeous blue is Tiffany Case from the 2013 The Bond Girls Collection. It is a pretty light blue sparkly textured polish.
I used three coats for this mani. I actually put top coat on my ring finger to see if there was a noticeable difference. I asked the kids and C but none of them could pick out which nail was different so apparently it is not noticeable at all. Once I allowed them to touch it they did say it was smooth but by then they were convinced I was crazy and there was nothing different about any of them.
The only other textured polish I had tried was Milani Yellow Mark which is creme. This baby has some sparkle too it which I very much like and gives it a whole different look.
Some of the sparkle looks like it comes in larger silver glitter pieces which catch the light quite nicely. I didn't have any issues with the texture but usually that sort of thing doesn't bother me anyway.
I wasn't sure I could be on board with the texture trend but after giving them a try I do like them. I am not rushing out to buy every texture in existence but I do quite like some of them. OPI is coming out with a couple non sparkle Liquid Sand Polishes for Fall which should be interesting. I think what I enjoy most about their take on texture is the sparkle.
Another random background for you! I made a bunch of those little wine glass tags for my cousin's bridal shower. I had them all laid out so I could take a picture because I like to take pictures of all my projects. I figured it would make a distracting background for my mani pictures.
I am rather disappointed that I won't make it to the shower but with the car problems and work I won't be able to make it up there.
That's all for now :)
