Now this is an unplanned post but I frankly am totally washed away by Opi Can't Let Go. I ordered the mini (rather macro) set of the four liquid sand glitters with Bath & Unwind since I could not decide which one to get and I was not sure I would like all of them. I was enjoying a lazy weekend at home with plenty of time to play with nailpolish and so it happened that I tried Can't Let Go:
I applied two coats of Opi Can't Let Go over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. I found the application easy and also the drying time not remarkably slow - I have some other, admittedly older polish, that take at least as much time as Can't Let Go.
To maintain the liquid sand optic you don't wear Top Coat with this polish. I recently received my bottle Glitter Food from Nail Pattern Boldness - I wanted to give it a try to protect the polish but also to maintain the "sandy" feel of the polish. I applied Glitter Food only on my ring finger and if you look closely you see, that the polish is a smidgen darker than on my other nails. Also the finish had sort of a "greasy" look. It lost the super textured quality that makes this polish such a total stand-out in my eyes. I only wore this for a day and Opi Can't Let Go did not had to undergo all of the usual wear tests such as typing, opening tons of mail for my boss, etc.
What I like best with Can't Let Go is its wearability - this is a glitter that I can easily wear to the office without getting big eyes and raised eyebrows. On top of that it looks good on nubs as well which is not a natural given with glitters I find.
Have you gotten any of the liquid sand polishes?
I ordered the Mariah Carey liquid sand mini set with Bath & Unwind .
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
