OPI Bond Girls Liquid Sand Collection Swatches & Giveaway

Disclosure: All products featured in this post were purchased by me.


Well hello there, my fellow polish fiends! Yes, I do have something fun for you today because I have swatched the OPI Bond Girls Liquid Sand Collection, AND I also have a set of minis for one lucky reader. Isn’t that just punch you in the gut fantastic? Fortunately, I am in a very good mood today so I was able to get these swatches done after work which is huge since all I want to do after work is die. Kidding. Sort of. Anyway, I have to admit that I am a textured polish fan, but I much prefer the sparkly kind and not the popcorn ceiling kind. Let me get to the point of this post because I’m feeling very talky tonight and I may never get to the swatches if I don’t cut myself off right now…



Aren’t the pretty all together? Let me talk about the formula here since I don’t want to repeat myself over and over again: the formula is great. They are all very easy to apply and dry really quickly. The only thing you really have to keep in mind is that it is important to let each coat dry before you apply a second coat or else you will get some dragging–what a drag. All of my swatches have two coats of polish–no base coat and no top coat. I was messing with the size of my pictures since I can’t seem to find a happy medium. I’m sorry if you find my brown nubs too huge on your screen–just look at the pretty polish, ok? On to the lovelies!



When I first saw the shades, Solitaire was the one I was least excited about. Now that I have tried it out, I really do like it because I’ve been finding white polish very fun lately. Maybe I’ve been watching too many CutePolish videos on youtube: Apply 2 coats of white polish…and lastly add a fast drying topcoat to protect your design and add a beautiful shine.” Ok, I digress. Maybe I like this one so much because it’s such a stark contrast with my dark skin?



Will I ever NOT like a blue polish? Not likely. Tiffany Case is my second favorite color in this collection because it’s so vibrant and bright. Someone had mentioned that this was a stainer, but I actually did not get any staining but I only swatched it. You will normally get staining even if you wear the polish for only a short amount of time so this was not a stainer for me at all–thank God!



Pussy Galore–Uhm, yeah…ok…it had to be pink, right? This one is a little too light pink for me to really be excited about. I like pink, but I’m more of a hot pink type of girl.



And here is the belle of the ball, my precious Jinx. I always have a soft spot for vibrant orange polishes so this one does not disappoint–it actually looks like it’s on fire. It’s a beautiful combination of orange-gold-coral. I just can’t get enough of it. If there is one color that I would call essential from this collection, it would be Jinx.



Honey Ryder is just gold. Textured gold. Am I the only one who is thinking of Goldmember right now?



And lastly, here we have Vesper. Vesper had a lot of promise when I first saw it, but I think that the color really just covers up everything that makes this polish interesting. It’s way too dark…it looks like lumpy grape jam. This one is my least favorite of the collection. Sorry Eva Green, OPI did you wrong!

And now you can win your very own set of minis! As always, this is open internationally but please check the customs regulations of your country before entering.
