Well I didn't think I would like the new OPI Liquid Sand range as its matte and textured etc etc. They are in fact the complete opposite to what I do like, i.e. glittery and glossy smooth. That all being said... I love them! To my mind they are sophisticated glitter, if there is such a thing. They are a tiny bit textured but not as rough as an emery board.
On to my mani then, this is two coats of OPI Stay The Night, which has a dark charcoal grit like base with berry red glitter, and way darker than my pictures are showing (the bottle colour is correct). OPI have described it so much better "Dries to a textured matte finish infused with reflective glints of light"
