Finally! I am absolutely thrilled to have Alcatraz…Rocks find it’s new home in my ever expanding nail polish collection. This was the polish I was most looking forward to from OPI’s San Francisco collection. You may remember that when I first found OPI’s San Francisco collection it was lacking the Liquid Sand polishes, but when I stopped in for a refill of my favorite pillow mist: Earth Therapeutics Dream Zone, they had them in stock!
I’ve got to say – while I’m still loving the textured polishes – I know not all of you are. BUT – Alcatraz…Rocks is such a stunner with a top coat on that you need it, yes – NEED. But but… yes, you need it even if you’re over textured polishes. Actually, stop reading now and go pick it up. I’ll wait…
Okay, so Alcatraz…Rocks is – obviously- part of the Liquid Sand line. The base color shifts depending on the light – but most of the time I’d describe it dark steel or cobalt blue packed with fine multicolored glitter (gold, pink, and green just to start) and it dries to a gritty textured matte finish, typical of the other Liquid Sand polishes.
Application was great – not overly thick – especially for a LS polish, I used two thin coats and I was ready to roll!
