Manicure Monday: Liquid Sand

Manicure Monday: Liquid Sand via The Collabor-eight

I’ve always been intrigued my texture polishes.  How cool is it that you can create nail art just with a swipe of a brush? From metallic polishes and feather polishes, to crackle polish and velvet. It’s amazing how easy nail art can be! My newest texture obsession? I’ve recently fallen in love with Liquid Sand by OPI.

I created this look with two Liquid Sand by OPI polishes and a base coat – no top coat needed! After prepping my nails and applying Sally Hansen’s Complete Care base coat, I let my nails dry completely.  This is another tape manicure, so it’s important to make sure your nails are totally dry before moving on.

I applied two thin strips of tape to each nail to create a “V” chevron shape and pressed the tape down completely.  Above the line of tape, I applied two quick coats of OPI Liquid Sand in Get Your Number, a bright blue texture polish filled with glitter. Below the line, I applied two quick coats of OPI Liquid Sand in Can’t Let Go, a fun sparkly purple texture.  Carefully remove the tape before your polish dries, and you’re done! The of Liquid Sand is that it is the top coat – so no top coat needed!
