Finally the review is here! OPI has released a new special line of polishes based on the new movie 'Oz the Great and Powerful'. I bought the mini collection of the line last week, and I've been really looking forward to trying them. The line features three neutral/pink colours, three glitter polishes, and one of OPI's new liquid sand polish. The mini collection features four nail polishes from the line:
- I Theodora You (sheer pink)
- Don't Burst My Bubble (neutral/pink)
- Glints of Glinda (beige)
- What Wizardry is This? (gold/taupe liquid sand)
For part 1 of my review, I've reviewed Glints of Glinda and What Wizardry is This.
1. Glints of Glinda
On first inspection, Glints of Glinda looked like my perfect shade! I love a good neutral nail colour for everyday wear. Glints of Glinda is a slightly yellow-based beige colour, perfect for those wanting a natural look.
I have to admit I was slightly disappointed with the application of this colour. I wasn't expecting the colour to be so sheer! The picture above shows my nails with two coats, and it pretty much looks like clear nail polish with a slight tint of beige. I'd definitely use at least 3 coats next time to build up the colour. It's a standard OPI formula, so it goes on well and dries fairly quickly.
I think there are better neutral/beige polishes in the OPI range than Glints of Glinda. This polish is good for someone looking for a more sheer colour.
2. What Wizardry is This?
What Wizardry is This is the fifth instalment in OPI's liquid sand range. It's a rich taupe/gold colour, though I can definitely see an olive undertone to it, and is flecked with fine glitter (nothing too over the top).
I'd never tried liquid sand before, I must admit I was a bit worried that it would be too rough and end up catching on things. Although it is gritty, it's very fine so it didn't catch on anything. It has a great opacity - two coats was all I needed. OPI does say that a top coat shouldn't be used with this type of polish due to the fact that it is meant to be a textured matte finish. I have to say I would agree here - the textured finish is the best part (it feels amazing)! Despite textured/glitter polishes being notoriously difficult to remove, this liquid sand removed quite easily with cotton wool and nail polish remover.
I love this polish! I never want to take it off. It's definitely the stand out in the mini collection so far. I would recommend this polish for anyone who likes taupe/gold colours and wants to take it to the next level.
