Just like the other liquid sands, this one has extra grit particles added in addition to the glitters to enhance and amplify the texture. Formula-wise, this is super easy to work with. It's pigmented, needing just the standard two coats for opacity. And since all the glitters are small and uniform in size, they distribute evenly across the nails without any coaxing.
Now that I have tried the liquid sands, I have to say they exceeded my expectations. I didn't think I would like them at all with the odd texture and the matte finish. I thought they would just be dull and lumpy. But they turned out to have a lot of depth and are quite sparkly. The texture does bother me a little bit because I tend to fidget and run my fingers over my nails constantly. I guess if I can't get used to them, I can always just add top coat to fix that.
I would love to know what you think of the liquid sands and this collection in general. Will any of them be making it onto your wishlist? What do you think of the textured polish trend?
