Nail Polish Fail

Have you ever bought something and decided you hated it within the first 24hrs of owning it? I just did that with a bottle of nail polish.

I bought the OPI Liquid Sand in Get Your Number last night, came home and immediately put it on my nails...and took it right back off. Seriously I had already taken the polish off my left hand when I decided to stop and take a picture for you guys. Here it is:

This is just an iPhone photo my husband snapped really quick for me. 

There's nothing against the polish concept. I loved putting Westminster Bridge matte top coat on top of Deborah Lippmann Raspberry Beret, but I just didn't love this. Actually, I hated it. It looks so pretty in the bottle, and nothing like that at all on my nails. I wanted to love this since I just bought my aunt a set of the minis for her Birthday, I thought we could match. I just don't think this works with my skin tone, at all. 

My husbands opinion is that it looks cheap, and he definitely wasn't a fan. He also said it should have been shinier because of the glitter. I kinda get that, it does look especially dull on my nails, and crazy shiny in the bottle. 

I didn't even take a shot of this for my Pinterest board, I just immediately gave it to my cousin who's staying the week with me. Then I put my Nails Inc Cheyne Walk back on, which I'll be doing a review of soon.

Some trends work, others don't. This one, much like the shatter polish trend, just didn't work out for me. Unlike the Shatter trend, I don't think I'm gonna try so hard, I'll just console myself with another Nails Inc polish, because what I've tried so far is amazing, and they're only $1 more than OPI. So worth it.
