I have been interested in trying the new formula by OPI since it released a couple of months ago. I hadn't been overly interested in the shades released in the Liquid Sand formula until I saw the newest collection called Bond Girls.
This collection was released in celebration of 50 years of James Bond. The shades are named after the iconic Bond Girls like Solitaire, Pussy Galore, Honey Ryder and Jinx - my pick from the collection.
Jinx is a beautiful coral shade that is just sooo sparkly. It was love at first sight. I am really loving the effect the Liquid Sand formula has. It is like a matte glitter and looks stunning on the nails.
I applied two thin coats for a full and even coverage. You could have gotten away with just one coat though. I applied no base or top coat. I was impressed that this polish lasted through the day at work - no chips at all which is a little unusual for me. Work is though on my hands and polish does not normally hold up well.
The only thing I don't really like with this polish is rough texture of it on the nails. It feels a little like sandpaper. I am sure this would be different if you used a top coat but I did not want to change the look.
The Bond Girls Collection is now available at OPI stockists (I picked mine up at Myer). The retail price is the normal $19.95 for a 15ml bottle or $24.95 for the four mini bottle sets (that includes Jinx).
I think I am going to pick up another shade or two in the future. I want Pussy Galore (just for the name!) and Honey Ryder looks lovely.
Have you tried the Liquid Sand formula? What do you think of it? Who is your favourite Bond Girl?
