I know I'm kind of late, but this is the biggest trend at the moment, textured nail polishes. The first I saw was velvet nails, check out my post on Flocking Velvet Nail. Then I saw OPI Liquid Sands which I will talk about in this post. Now I see Milani Texture Creams and Zoya Pixie Dust.

Now for the nail polishes in this set...
It was really fun wearing these colors! My co-workers would look forward to each week to see which colors they liked best. We all agree our favorite was The Impossible which is interesting for myself since I'm not a big fan of pink nail polishes. I tend to go for orange/peachy and green/blue colors.
My overall opinion... Out of all the collections out there, this has to be my favorite! The Milani and velvet powder comes only in one color. Zoya has a mixture of colors combine but they're mostly one color with a glitter. OPI has one color with multi-glitters. I especially like Stay the Night, because it's just unique. I know I wouldn't find that in another nail polish.
Just like other OPI nail polishes, it lasted a good five days before chipping. I also like that it's actually a little bit easier to take off than most glitter polishes. For some reason, I did not have to rub as hard with nail polish remover. That's a big plus but you will not remove these like cream polishes. ;)
* OPI; brand I trust.
* Matte, textured nails.
* Last 5 days before chipping.
* Only four polishes available.
Would repurchase: Yes, depending on the color.
