I have for you tonight a swatch of one of my new favorites. You've probably see that one of the hot trends this year is matte glitter, ie. OPI's Liquid Sand and Zoya's Pixie Dust. So far, I've only gotten one of each, mainly because the rest of the colors don't appeal to me =\
Tonight, I'm going to show you OPI's Got Your Number from the Mariah Carey collection. When this particular textured polish was announced, I was really on the fence about. Don't get me wrong, I love the matte polishes I have, but matte glitter is different. I wanted to give it a try anyways.
I'm pretty sure OPI recommends not using a basecoat with the Liquid Sands, but I couldn't just put all that glitter on my nails, so I opted for the glue method. Unfortunately, it didn't make it any easier to take off, since it didn't want to peel off, but it didn't stain.
For my mani, I applied 2 coats of Got Your Number over the glue once it was dry. When Got Your Number was dry, it reminded me of a gumdrop. The texture is slightly rough (Pixie Dusts are smoother, in my opinion), but it doesn't catch on your clothing. What was a pleasant surprise to me was the wear time; I did this mani Monday night and took it off tonight. I had very little tip wear and no chips! I can't say that about any of my polishes, except for one (and for the life of me I can remember what it is right now! :P)
So here is Got Your Number. Enjoy!
And before I forget, I now have a Face Book page for my blog :) Give it a like, I'd love to see your manis and comments.
