Aside from texture, OPI Liquid Sand line was intended to be worn without top coat and dries glittered matte.
Here is OPI Can't Let Go without top coat:
For purposes of this review, I wore this as a full manicure and waited an hour before taking photos. I wanted to make sure it was completely dry to see if it holds to its finish promise.
Can't Let Go is a beautiful purple with a few scattered chunky glitters. Formula was excellent and applies easily. Two coats is sufficient but I decided on 3 layers for maximum coverage.

I don't personally like texture on my nails but surprisingly, I am comfortable with this liquid sand polish from OPI. It's not one of those that you'd worry about being tangled on your clothes or that would get in a way as you rummage into your bag. Unfortunately, it didn't dry to a full matte. To me, it looked like semi-glossy. Regardless, I liked it!
Drying time is satisfactory. It was dry to the touch in approximately 7 minutes.
Now, here is OPI Can't Let Go with top coat:
In photo, I applied Seche Vite Fast Drying Top Coat on my ring finger.
With top coat, I loved it even more! It transformed to a deep purple and the glitters became more prominent. Gorgeous!
Removal is not as hard as removing glittered polishes. This actually came as a surprise. But it was a good surprise!
I have the mini bottles of the entire collection a 2 in regular bottles.*
What about you? Have you tried any of OPI's liquid sand polishes? What are your thoughts?
*I buy my OPI nail polishes from Digital Traincase. They also carry OPI mini sets aside from other latest polish collections!
