OPI What Wizardry Is This?

Hi you guys! Hope your week is going well! Mine has been so busy. I feel like I barely had any time to relax and just kick back. I'm hoping I'll get the chance this weekend. :-)

Today I'm wrapping up the OPI Oz The Great and Powerful Collection with the only liquid sand polish of the bunch. What Wizardry Is This? is a burnished copper brown with gold and copper glitters that dries down to a matte textured finish.






Compared to the Mariah Carey Liquid Sand polishes, this one is made up of finer particles, so it's not quite as textured. The formula is thin and super easy to apply. It goes evenly onto the nails and with enough pigmentation to reach opacity in two coats. It first applies onto the nails glossy, then dries down to its signature liquid sand finish, with the glitters and extra gritty particles giving it the textured look and feel. Dry time is a little longer, as is the case for textured polish, so give yourself a few extra minutes if you are wearing this.

Hope you guys have enjoyed my posts on the OPI Oz Collection. What do you think of this collection? Any particular likes or dislikes? For me, When Monkeys Fly! was definitely the sore thumb of the collection, but I really like the rest. I would have expected an Oz-inspired collection to feature emerald and ruby colors, so the theme felt a little contrived. But otherwise, it's a really fresh and elegantly beautiful collection that I think I'll wear frequently in the future.

You can find What Wizardry Is This? at your local nail salons and beauty stores such as Ulta and Dillard's for a retail price of $9 for 0.5 fl oz.

  5. This is one of my faves in the collection. I was also really hoping for some brights in this collection so I was a little disappointed.

    1. I'm glad you like this one! Yes, a bright red or green would have been fantastic, but I guess they were sticking with the "soft shades" theme. :-)

  6. That is really pretty!! I think When Monkeys Fly was definitely the low point. I liked all the pale pink sheers though.
