SPARKLING'S EXPERIENCE:

This is not my first mini collection set from OPI, check my review on Spider Man Bright mini collection here, but this is my first ever experience with OPI liquid sand. To tell you the truth I was not sure what to expect from this new kinda nail-polish in my stash. It said its matt, will have glitter, and will give a sand-like-effect/texture, so I was more amused to try it. Trust me the results left me AMAZED! This is really a super innovation in nail-polishes besides the gel-polishes. As it is clearly mentioned in the description that to get the desired results apply two coats, I did so and quite any top-coat, with in no time it dried in to an uneven texture full of gritty particles shimmer, yet matte in base, giving a perfect sand-like-effect. I was not expecting that i'd like it (being a die hard fan of traditional smooth nail-varnishes only) This won me over, not to mention the clever selection of shades, each dedicated to a Bond Girl from each era from 50 years. Lets review each shade individually:

  • JINX: As it is described as "matte coral" with "luck sparkle" I was not sure how will it turn out. As corals shades are usually the bright-popping-out these days and the color from the JINX character's bikini top was not appealing, atleast to my eyes. BUT how wrong was I, shame on my predictive senses, This colour is the queen of this set. A beautiful coral, with hints of red/oranges, sparkling golden shimmer, along with the sand texture won me over. I really wanted to attend a party/wedding to show it off. A perfect shade for the brides-to-be or even not-to-be (just kidding). A party shade, represents festivity and happiness. I wear it on to get-over my depression. See I don't wear a nail-polish, if I love it, then I live it!
  • VESPER: This is really a "mysterious" shade a dark "deep purple" perfect for all the Glam nights or just for celebrating winter evenings. Seems as if black and blue berries are crushed to make this sumptuous shade. Not much of shimmer it is a darling. I  love this shade so much, that I never loved any dark shade so much. Trust me girls its a magic in that little bottle!
  • PUSSY GALORE: A "feminine pink" it is. With decent amount of shimmer it is for all the sobre reasons you want to colour your nails. Well I personally do not like "pink" nail polishes much, I have a pre-emptive that they make my hands look tan/dark (silly me!) But this one is a cute little baby you don't want to let go!
  • SOLITAIRE: A "diamond-sparkling white" with silver shimmer. I can never even think in my dream that I will wear a WHITE nail polish, but this little naughty white proved me wrong. With a sand-texture this white-beauty is my favourite. I am going to rock it this Summers! With all those floral, colourful prints or just white plain kurta this nail-colour is going to make a statement in my circle.
Overall these four are a love, do I still need to say that "I am in love with OPI 007 Bond Girls mini collection"
