This is my third OPI Liquid Sand nail polish from the Bond Girls Collection.

I bought the mini-set for four of the colors and full size for the other two.
Here's the back of the mini-set kit. I already reviewed and swatched Jinx and Pussy Galore. The third nail polish I used is Solitaire.
It was played by Jane Seymour in Live and Let Die (1973). Wow, I never knew she was a bond girl. I'm learning a lot from these posts. :)
Here's a closer look at the nail polish. I have no idea why it's named after Solitaire. Maybe I should watch the movie. On the back of the package, it said "this diamond-sparkling white is totally engaging."
Here's a closer look at the brush. It's a medium width brush and this nail polish has a lot of frostiness.
Here's how the nail polish looks on my nails. The first, second, and the last from the left are two coats of Solitaire. The third one from the left is two coats of Solitaire with Seche Vite Top Coat. I honestly recommend you use this nail polish without the top coat. It looks better, as well as, you can feel the sandy texture. With the top coat, it just looks like a normal nail polish.
Here's a closer look at the texture nail polish. It's a frosty white with silver, white, and black sparkles. I had a mixed reaction from friends and co-workers. Some loved it and some didn't. There was no in-between it's either a hate or love nail polish. Please ignore my dry cuticles. :X

Now for my overall opinion... Since I already did a thorough review from the original Liquid Sand from the Mariah Carey's Collection, I will base this by that. From my experience with the Liquid Sand nail polishes, they're all easy to apply. They're the easiest to use. They apply easily, no streaking, and they dry quickly.  I notice if you apply too much, they don't dry as quick and the texture doesn't look sandy. It just looks like a big chunk of color. They're also fun to wear since texture nail polishes are the biggest thing at the moment. Right after the nail polishes dry, you will feel the sandy texture. As days go on, the texture becomes less sandy-like and more smoother. Even though the sandiness decreases, the look doesn't. I also noticed with the frosty Liquid Sand like Pussy Galore and this one Solitaire, they chip easier than the ones that aren't frosty. This took a good 4 days before it started chipping.

Would repurchase: Yes for Liquid Sands and no, for this color.
