I have had a lovely day today catching up with old friends, although a large part of that was spent in various pubs and we were very naughty eating out for both lunch and dinner (remember…calories don’t count until January!)
As I write this, the boys have moved onto the whiskey and are currently assembling a bonfire in the back garden – sorry neighbours!
Whilst they are occupied, I thought I would steal 10 minutes for a quick manicure ready for New Year’s Eve festivities tomorrow night. I like to stay fairly low-key for this night but will be driving up to London to spend the day and evening with our besties. Whilst we aren’t hitting the town, I still wanted a bit of sparkle so I couldn’t wait to try out a new nail varnish I bought in the sales.
Now textured nail varnish can be rather love/ hate with some people but me? I love the stuff! Concrete, feather, velvet-effect…I am slowly working my way through them all!
One of the original formulas however was OPI’s Liquid Sand range. I found this gorgeous rose gold shade Make Him Mine reduced from £12 to £3.75 in Sallys which is great for such a well-known brand (I may have bought some other OPI goodies too!)
I used two coats of this formula and it applied like a dream.
I try not to play favourites with my nail varnishes but this is one of the nicest colours I own. I love the pinky shade and it has various sized pieces of glitter which catch the light for a bit of sparkle.
The colour is so well-pigmented that you could probably get away with one coat but I used two to build the colour up and it finished to a textured, matte glitter finish.
I am really keen to try out more from OPI’s Liquid Sand range, although I’m not sure I will find a colour I like more!
What are your plans for NYE? x
