here’s the thing about a textured nail: it’s very tough to screw up. smudges, streaks, and chips are far less obvious (read: invisible) when you’re sporting nails with the level of grit that opi’s liquid sand provides. i tested the purple polish when i was in a real rush to paint my nails on the way to a friend’s birthday party. i threw a magazine on my lap and quickly slapped two coats on while i caught up on the news. i was really surprised by how speedily it dried and how much i loved the finished look. yes, it’s edgy and far less glossy than i typically go for, but the fun factor and the ease of application (along with the near instant dry time) has me giving this one two very gritty, purple thumbs up.
