Twinsie Tuesday: OPI Get Your Number

This week's Twinsie Tuesday theme was an easy one: a mani in your favorite color! My favorite color in "real life" is pink, but when it comes to polish, I like blue (and green) best!

Luckily, I just tried an amazing blue that I am dying to share with you: OPI Get Your Number! Get Your Number is the blue Liquid Sand polish from the Mariah Carey Collection. I gotta say, I was skeptical about whether or not I'd like the Liquid Sand finish, but I finally gave it a shot and now I am a total convert! I love how the glitter pieces in this polish glint and sparkle in the light. They really stand out against the mattified base.



I was worried that the texture would get on my nerves, but Get Your Number doesn't feel gritty or jagged at all. There's a graininess to the finish, of course, but it's much finer and less harsh than I'd imagined. It honestly didn't bother me one bit! The formula is excellent too and it wears like iron. I used three coats here. I thought the "sand" particles would make this polish hard to spread, but it goes on like buttah. Well done, OPI!

Now that I've fallen in love with this finish, I am even more excited for the upcoming Bond Girls Liquid Sand Collection. I am practically frothing at the mouth to try more of these. In the meantime, if you're a blue lover like me or if you're still skeptical about Liquid Sand, I highly recommend checking out Get Your Number! It's amazing and a great entry point into the world of textured manis.

Have you tried any of the Liquid Sand polishes yet? If so, what'd you think? And don't forget to see what my fellow Twinsies' favorite colors are too!

  3. Hmmm..I haven't tried a liquid sand yet and like you, wasn't sure if I'd like the grittiness or would make the polish chip or wear faster? Doesn't seem like it! I would consider trying one now because of you!! And my favorite color in "real life" is pink too..and favorite polish colors are green and blue! It's so funny how similar our tastes are..my polish twinsie! :)

    1. If anything, Liquid Sand wears better on me than normal polish and the grittiness really doesn't bother me at all. I think you'd like it! It really is funny how coincidental our tastes are! :) I have a draft running of our e-mail thread I need to get to. Sorry I've been so bad about responding! I figure we always keep in touch in the interim through blog comments. :)

  4. Oh, yay! I'm so glad you like it, Chelsea! I love this one, and it looks awesome on you. Trying so hard not to let the sandy trend swallow me whole, but I agree this one is a total standout. Fantastic job capturing that sparkle in your pictures too! ^_^

    1. Your swatches are what finally inspired me to try it out, so thank you! :) I have totally been sucked in. I already have another Liquid Sand. I told my friend I really liked Get Your Number, so she gave me Stay The Night, which I can't wait to try!

    1. I don't think I'd like a straight-up texture polish as much, but I like the sparkle Liquid Sand has for sure. :)

  10. This is a pretty blue and I love the glitter. I haven't tried any textured polishes yet. I'd have to top coat it until it was smooth as glass and that really defeats the whole sand idea doesn't it?

    1. Thanks! I agree, top coat eliminates the texture but also defeats what makes Liquid Sand unique to begin with.:-/

  12. This is pretty! How was the removal process? I love blues but I dread removing glitters!

    1. Removal really was not bad at all! It took a bit more elbow grease than regular polish but nowhere near as bad as glitter.

  13. This looks great on you! and now, I kind of wanna try it.

    1. Thanks Brandi! The wear time is amazing. I wore this for four days and only had one teeny tiny chip on my right hand. Everything else looked good as new!
