OPI Liquid Sand Nail Polish ~ Stay the Night


My OPI nail polish arrived this week and of the three I purchased  I couldn't wait to try this one.

Stay the Night is one of four liquid sand nail polishes available from the Mariah Carey range.

This is a textured matte polish with red glitter, I think it looks like volcanic rock that's cooling down so you can still see a glimmer of heat. .

 Depending on the lighting I think the colour changes from black to charcoal and purple with red glitter.

The texture is rough like sandpaper but once dry you can rub your nail and there is no fallout, I applied two coats and it didn't take long to dry.  What I did notice when I applied the gloss coat to my ring finger was that the polish was very thirsty and it ended up taking 4 coats before I achieved a glossy effect.  I am still not happy with the gloss finish and would like to see it smoother.  I really like the way the gloss enhances the colour of this polish, I just need to perfect the finish to my liking.

I was concerned due to the rough texture the polish might crumble off but I have been wearing it for two days and rubbing it with my finger, so far no wear or chipping except for the middle finger but I think that was application and I missed a bit.

Being a dark polish you have to be very careful how you apply because it can get messy. Try to clean up before it dries because I found the sandy bits a little hard to remove from around the skin.  I usually use a little vaseline around the cuticles so the polish doesn't stick but I was in a rush and got lazy, I should have spent the extra time.  My nails look a bit messy in this photo but it's a good example to show why you should take a little extra time.

Other than that I really love this nail polish, I think it certainly looks vampy and people notice your nails.  I find it's a real good way to meet other like minded women who love to paint their nails, I rarely get out the shops these days without having a chat to someone about nail polish lol.......

There a four Liquid Sand Shades available, have you tried any, what did you think? Please let me know in the comments which is your favourite.

  3. I like it once it appears glossy. I cannot imagine wearing textured polish. ZOYA and Milani have come out these too. Milani has a gorgeous orange red and is affordable. I may give that one a whirl once it comes in stores. x

    1. It is nice glossy but you would have to use a lot of gloss. I have ordered the Zoya Pixie dusts from the US. The Sally Hansen Gem polishes are really nice too.

  8. I have yet to try liquid sand polishes! Wahhh... I've been lusting over this for a while now. I'm not really liking the look with the top coat though.
