OPI The Impossible

*Nothing to disclose

Hello! Today I bring you another OPI liquid sand polish called The Impossible. I know these were all the rage at the beginning of the year, but I still really like the textured look. I still don’t own any other brands’ textured polishes, but I would love to try them out, if I ever spotted them around.

Anywho, moving on. The Impossible is from the OPI Mariah Carey Collection and is a wonderful red polish with glitter throughout and some larger hexes. It’s not a deep red, it’s closer to pink I think, but it’s a great pop of colour in winter.

As you can see, I have one of the teeny tiny bottles, which is part of my mini set of the liquid sand polishes from the Mariah Carey Collection. I used three coats to achieve what you see here – I would have done two but I thought it looked a little sheer when I applied it. It dries thicker though.

Like the rest of the liquid sand polishes I’ve tried, I’m really a fan of the textured feel. This is different to just putting glitter onto went nail polish; it’s actually designed for everyday wear and tear, whereas with just applying glitter to a colour, there’s no real engineering behind it.

What I will say about The Impossible though is that the larger hex glitters annoyed me. They just seemed out of place and too sparse for my liking.

Let me know what you think of The Impossible. I really like it, as you can tell. Thanks for reading!
