Hello my Beauties,
how was your weekend?
Tonight i’m sharing with you a quick Nail Of The Week, with a short review and swatches.
You know what a big hype the sand style polishes made in the past month’s. Not only high-end brands came out with the textured polishes, or Liquid Sand, as they are also called, but also drugstore lines seem to jump on the trend train.
A few weeks ago the german brand P2 announced the launch of their sand style polish collection.
And as you imagine, i was very excited to get one of those to try.
What i’m wearing today is the P2 Sand Style in Nr. 060 strict.
Color & Finish: It’s a dark, sparkly purple-ish silver with small and big hex glitter. The finish is gravelly and matte, but because of all the glitter, it still looks sparkly. (I hope it makes sense…)
Application & Opacity: Not streaky at all. Already one coat gives a really nice look, but it’s still a little too light. To make sure it’s an even surface, i would always apply the second coat, to also make the color more luscious. (As it also says on the bottle.)
Drying time: The polish didn’t take long at all to dry. After the first coat i probably waited 4-5 minutes and then applied the second one. After 10 minutes it was completely dry.
Price: 11ml coast 1,95 € in the local drugstore. (I’d say, not a bad price at all.)
I have to say, i’m quite pleased with the look of the polish on my hands. I will also admit, that the finish feels very unusual and i might be putting a clear polish on tomorrow, but i will definitely give it a try and wear this sand style polish by itself first.
It’s a really wearable color, even if it has so many sparkles and has therefore a fancy side to it.
Now i’m just curious how easy it’s going to be to get this polish of my nails again. Keep your fingers crossed, it’s easier than the regular glitter polishes…
How do you like the color and the look of sand style polishes in general? Have you tried any yet? Let me know.
Until next time – stay beautiful.
