Hi everyone, happy Monday. Today I have a quick review as I will be heading out to a doctor's appointment soon. What a way to start the week right? I wasn't as productive as I had hoped this weekend, I think I need a vacation just to rest after my vacation. Does anyone else feel like that sometimes? Thankfully I had some posts already done and I managed to get at least a few swatches done yesterday. Coming up I will have some new stamping plates, my newest Julep box, and some newly released polishes.
Today I have OPI Alcatraz Rocks. I will admit I haven't completely jumped on the textured bandwagon. There are things I do like, like the better wearability, the cool colors, and the look of the glitter but the major thing I can't get over is having my nails feel like sandpaper and feeling like they get caught on everything. What is your opinion on textures?
Despite my feelings on textures, I knew that I wanted this polish. I have been waiting for my Ulta to get it....it finally took two months after the release but they got it, so I picked it up this weekend. This polish is a cross between a blue and a purple, in some lights it can lean either way. The shimmer in this polish is what sold me, it's insanely pretty. I see gold and pink shimmer in this polish.
The formula was really good on this one. I used two coats to make it opaque and thought the dry time was pretty quick. It was still dentable after some time but it felt dry to the touch within minutes. I wore this polish textured for a few hours and then decided to glitz it up to really show off those shimmers. I added two coats of Seche Vite topcoat on all the nails except my accent nail which is two coats of OPI Which is Witch? For once, this is the mani that I am actually wearing today :)
Did you pick this polish up? Which do you prefer, the glossy or the textured? I am very happy with this polish and am really glad that I could finally find it!
