OPI My Current Crush

I love textured polish! I was surprised to see this on my last visit to my beauty supply house. It was packaged in a duo with OPI Natural Base Coat and called The TXTure Effect. Directions say apply base coat and two coats of color. I thought you weren't supposed to use base coat for the best texture effect? I dunno. I always use my treatment and China Glaze Strong Adhesion. I cannot bear to apply any color directly to my nails. Evar!


I haven't seen any ads or promo for this at all. Maybe I just missed it. I have been extra busy lately. At any rate, I'm glad I saw it. I couldn't wait to try it out!




OPI My Current Crush is a gorgeous liquid sand, OPI's version of textured polish. It's a royal purple with just enough silver and purple micro glitter to make it sparkle just right as the light hits it.So pretty!  It's not quite as textured as the other liquid sand polishes I have. That's not a bad thing. It's just as awesome as the other liquid sands I have and I love it. The application was absolutely perfect. Maybe the best ever. Maybe I was having a lucky application. I don't know. But I only had to use my clean up brush on two nails. I love that! I did two coats and let it dry a good 45 minutes. I think it was dry sooner than that but I was not gonna take a chance and mess up such a gorgeous and easy application. Here's hoping future application go as flawlessly.

  1. I have not heard of it either and it's a pity because it is such a lovely colour and it is unique for a Liquid Sand. Remember Get your number and Tiffany Case? Very similar shade of light blue. They might as well have used this one, for variety.
    I will hunt this down and get it!

    1. Hi Marianthi! I agree 100% it is a gorgeous color. I haven't seen one like this at all in any of the textured polishes. I hope you can find it. You will love it.
      Good luck-

  2. I was buying the Mariah Carey Holiday 2013 OPI Liquid Sand Kiss Me at Midnight (blue) and ran across this from same seller, and started looking for swatches. I've never heard of this one, so I threw it in the ebay cart...
