OPI Liquid Sand: Alcatraz...Rocks

I will admit that while I am a fan of the textured matte trend (Liquid Sand, Pixie Dust etc.) I am starting to get slightly annoyed with the sheer amount of polishes coming out with that finish. Calm down, stop shoving it down our throats. I have to say though, this one is a masterpiece...

Ladies and gentleman  I present to you: Alcatraz...Rocks from the OPI San Francisco Collection.  What a stunner! I am not sure it gets more beautiful than the royal purple packed with tons of holographic particles. I cannot even describe this beauty!

I knew right when I took this out of the box it came in that I was going to love it. What's not to love? Purple, check! Holo, check! It's an all around beautiful and unique offering from OPI. 

This is a Liquid Sand finish, which is a textured matte. I find these to go on very easily and dry quickly without the assistance of a top coat. A shiny topcoat will change the finish of these so avoid it unless you want to make it shiny. I used two coats for opacity here and it's perfect! 

So am I getting slightly bored with this type of finish? Yup! But I do love this polish and get so excited when something truly unique finds its way to my collection. I think you all need this color, especially if you're a purple lover like me!
