|OPI Sand Nail Polishes|
OPI has a unique finish nail polish finish called "Sand Polishes" in their permanent collection. This texture is a rough gritty feeling that mimic the look of sand. Currently I have two OPI Sand Nail Polishes in my collection, "It's All San Andreas's Fault" and "Vesper".
Let's get in to the reviews!
"Vesper", is a very dark purple, is very streaky and not very opaque even with two coats. I wish the color had turned out more like what it looks like in the bottle, a deep ox blood red. The purple isn't very flattering and just looks blahhh. It looks even worse with the sand finish. Oh well.
It's All San Andreas's Fault is a beautiful matte taupe, and very opaque, even with 1 coat! The formula of the shade is perfect, not too thin or streaky and not thick and clumpy. I love this nail polish solely for the color, I just don't like the texture. I like to wear this with the Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat to even out the texture so I'm left with just the beautiful color.

I HATE the Sand nail polish texture on the matte colors, it just makes my nail polish look uneven and chunky. I have not tried any glitter sand nail polishes, I'd imagine they look much nicer than the matte colors I own.
But nail polish is a very personal product, what works for me may not work for your nails. I do recommend picking up It's All San Andrea's Fault, its a beautiful color and doesn't chip for almost a week, on me anyway. Skip Vesper, its very streaky.
