OPI The Impossible

Hello all! Today I have another one of the delightful OPI Liquid Sand polishes from the Mariah Carey collection to share with you. The Impossible is a sparkly coral/pink-leaning red glittery base with scattered small red-pink hexes and silver holo stars. It is kind of squishy like a jelly (although of course it tries to that matte-with-sparkle Liquid Sand finish) so when the glittery base covers the stars, they usually read as holo fuchsia glitters, which I love, haha. The stars did sink to the bottom of the bottle a bit, but they were easy enough to get out when I left it upside down for a minute or so and then dug around a bit. Otherwise application was quite lovely and it is very pretty,  check it out - with and without topcoat of course :)

On my nails:
1 coat Innisfree Eco Peel-off Base coat
2 coats OPI The Impossible
2 coats OPI Topcoat
1 coat Seche Vite

This was a thirsty one, for sure... even with all that topcoat it is still a touch bumpy in places. Also, to be honest I am not sure star glitters are meant to be un-topcoated ever... I couldn't keep it that way for long because the little points on the stars started sticking up and driving me crazy. For that alone I probably prefer this one with topcoat, although it is very pretty without. Red is not usually my color but whatever it is about this polish -- it's a little sheer and jelly-like, I do have some VNL but I actually like it, or the particular shade of red, or whatever -- I like it a lot! Makes me feel like a star :)

outdoors, shade - skin looks blue but polish looks really cool!

Have a great day! ♥
