The other day at ULTA I spotted the OPI San Francisco collection- there’s a lot of pretty colors, but the one that jumped out at me most (and into my bag) was Alcatraz… Rocks. I’d seen it in photos, but it was SO much prettier in person!
I’m still a bit on the fence when it comes to the textured polish trend- I don’t like many, but super sparkly ones (like Zoya’s Pixie Dusts or JulieG Gumdrops) I LOVE! And Alactraz… Rocks is definitely sparkly!
Alcatraz… Rocks is a dark blurple base (more purple leaning than I initially realized) filled with lots of different shimmer. I definitely saw blue, pink, and gold, though there could be a touch of green in there as well.
Application was great- I had good coverage with 1 coat, and complete coverage with 2. Photos show 2 coats with no topcoat. The dry time was pretty good- textured polishes can sometimes take a bit longer to dry, but it seemed like this one was touch-dry in around the same length of time my normal polishes are.
This is my first Liquid Sand polish, though I have quite a few textured offerings from other brands- and I can definitely say OPI did a great job with it. Dry time seemed to be superior to others I have used, and the sparkle was over the top (in a good way). If you like textures, definitely be sure to pick this one up!
I bought my bottle at ULTA for $9, but you can find this at most places OPI nail polish is sold!
