100th Post! OPI Liquid Sands Solitaire Swatches & Review

I can't believe this is my 100th post!  It doesn't feel like I've written that many but the numbers don't lie.  Today I have one of OPI's liquid sand polishes from the Bond Girls collection, Solitaire.  Bond movies were a staple in my house when I was a kid so anything Bond themed automatically catches my attention.  Solitaire is a pearly white polish with a handful of small silver glitter.  It dries to a matte textured finish.

The directions said to use two coats but I ended up using three as it still seemed a tad sheer after two.  Application was easy.  The only thing I dislike about the liquid sands is that they seem to stick to my skin so much better than other polishes, so this makes clean up a bit more difficult. 

The above photos show three coats of Solitaire in natural sunlight.  The photos below show it in shade.

As I've said before, I think textured polishes need a bit of glitter to add to depth of the textured effect.  Solitaire adds to this theory because it has some glitter and it looks amazing.  It's definitely a great option if you want a white polish that stands out.  What do you think of textured polishes?  Is this trend still going strong or starting to fade?
