The newest collection out from OPI is the celebrity line from Mariah Carey, and in her collection she's got some polishes that have what is advertised as "liquid sand". I had purchased a mini set of just the textured polishes, because the other four shades did not really interest me, and colors that weren't as new or special.
First off the OPI website describes the "liquid sand" polishes as "OPI's newest innovation in texture. Dries to a textured matte finish infused with reflective glints of light". While this sounds really cool, the best translation of this is to think of a really chunky glitter polish. The polish is also claimed to be matte in base, but I would not really describe it as that. Instead it looks like just a regular nailpolish base, I've had previous well packed glitter polishes, with the same style base, so once broken down...these polishes aren't THE most amazing. But lets look at the shades!
So the question you all are probably asking: Would I recommend them? These looks can easily be achieved through layering glitter top coats over any jelly polish, and you can probably find the deeper shades as a first color coat. But, they are still cool. Thinking back, while they seem to be something new, like the crackle...they really are not the most special colors or formulations. This bumpy "liquid sand" option seems cool,but no top coat means that it tends to chip a little easier, unless you get your hands on the Essie matte top coat. If you can, you can get the mini versions, but I wouldn't buy them full sized.
