When the Brazil Collection from OPI came out last month, I knew I had to grab the Liquid Sands. I will show swatches in the future post. Ever since Liquid Sands, I hardly buy normal polishes. This is just my opinion but I feel like there are so many similar colors out in the market. I asked myself how many different mints do I need for example; mint with more blue, mint with slight green, and so on. For that reason, I've been forcing/convincing myself to only get unique colors or colors I don't have. When I saw this polish, I thought it was unique and something I didn't have in my collection.

Thoughts: When I first saw this in person, I wasn't too sure if I would like it or not. I was debating and eventually, gave in.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I noticed I don't have a thorough review for OPI polishes other than Liquid Sand. I will base future OPI polishes to this review. Secondly, I'm a huge fan of OPI brushes. They are easy to paint around the cuticles or at least for me. I tend to have problems with thinner brushes. I also think with the consistency of most OPI polishes, it makes it easy to paint completely. It's not too thick that you have to paint right away or it leaves a messy polish. It's not too thin that it's so watery and moves around on the base of the nails. Not only is the consistency in the medium, it applies softly and leaves no streaks. OPI has everything I like including the lasting time. Most OPI lasts a minimum of 5 days on me. This nail polish lasted 6 days with barely a chip. I'm starting to think it's not the nail polish but a combination of base, polish, and top coat that makes a difference on the lasting power. The base coat I've been using, thanks to a friend who gifted me, has helped with the polishes lasting longing. I will review it in the future. Lastly, this color is just gorgeous! I love the duo tone.
