OPI Can't Let Go

OPI Can’t Let Go

OPI Can't Let GoI’ve been on a serious purple polish kick lately! After I finally quit wearing Zoya Mimi (I still kind of want to put it back on…) I decided it was time to give another OPI Liquid Sand polish a try. I was pleasantly surprised with Stay the Night so I had high hopes for Can’t Let Go. Luckily, it did not disappoint!

Can’t Let Go is a medium purple with chunky and smaller purple glitter. The non glitter part of the polish dries to the Liquid Sand texture. The formula was average. I used three coats in my swatches as two left me with a few bald spots.

Once Can’t Let Go dried down to the matte liquid sand finish I really loved the way it looked. The purple glitter really stands out against the matte finish of the polish.

While I was really pleased with the way this manicure turned out I had the same wear issues as I had with Stay the Night. Not 24 hours after applying this polish the glitter began to lose the purple color and turn silver. I didn’t actually mind the silver glitter with this particular purple but disappointing none the less.

I wore this manicure for 4 days and was very impressed by the wear. Other than the issue with the glitter, I only had minor tip wear. Don’t believe me? There is a day 4 picture below the jump (along with additional swatches).

If you haven’t yet tried any of OPI’s liquid sand polishes and you’re curious they did release a mini set with the 4 liquid sand polish from the Mariah Carey collection. It’s a great way to give textured polish a try!

    I think the liquid sand thing is growing on me. I might have to pick up the mini set…

    Nope have not tried any of the sands yet – I was out of town last week and drove right by the only place for 200 miles that sells OPI and I did not stop to look – by then was in a hurry to get home. Thinking these are not for me – too much gritty texture – gives me the feeling others get when nails are scraped down a chalkboard – I don’t even think I can use an emery board – have not use done for eons – it’s been metal files and then the ceramic then the glass ones when those came out. I kind of want to at least see these to feel them for myself on the samples.

      Really, this is no more gritty than a thick glitter polish. It’s a really hard texture to describe. Definitely check out the testers!

    Ahh I just can’t wrap my head around this particular texture. 🙁 It’s pretty though..How does it look with a top coat?

      I used a top cop over Stay the Night.

        Still not sold. I can’t figure out why I find these nearing on repulsive 🙁

    I have to say, I am liking this more seeing it on you than in the bottle… love blue leaning purples. I can get behind this texture because it doesn’t fall off like caviar manis…

    • Alli January 17, 2013 at 3:47 pm

      Honestly….when it’s on I barely even notice the texture. It’s all about the glitter!

What do you think?
