SWATCH & SEE: OPI Alcatraz… Rocks! – Liquid Sand

Hey guys! It’s been such a long time since I’ve done a Swatch & See post, huh? If you’re new here, a Swatch & See post is basically swatches and mini reviews of a nail polish, or two, that I’m currently loving!
Today’s nail polish is OPI’s Alcatraz… Rocks! I know, I know, this polish was a limited edition from the San Francisco line, but I just recently fell head over heels in love with it.

Alcatraz… Rocks is a textured nail polish. It looks either black, dark purple or dark blue under different lights. I see it mostly as a really dark purple, though. It’s packed with shimmery goodness of gold, pink, purple & blue. This is definitely a one-coater, but I apply two coats for best effect.
More pictures after the jump!

All the OPI Liquid Sand polishes look amazing both with or without a top coat. With a top coat, the shimmers in the polish really shows through and pops.
WEAR TEST: I wore this for an entire week with very minimal chips.
The only downside to OPI nail polishes is the price! It costs about RM60+ here in Malaysia (converted to approx. US$18), so I always try to look around different websites for sales- Zalora is currently having a sale on some shades from OPI for about RM44.
I absolutely love the OPI Liquid Sands! I was thinking about doing a post on “Battle of the Textured Polishes”, but I wasn’t sure if I should. What do you guys think?
Thanks for reading, xoxo
