Scotland
I'm a simple Scottish girl with an unusual name and a strange obsession for nail polish! My aim is to capture what the eye sees, with a camera! Too much nail polish and never enough time. Welcome to my little world :-)

OPI Alcatraz....Rocks

This is last of the San Francisco collection. I've managed to work my way through it!



This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying but not as quick as some of the other liquid sands polishes. It's a gorgeous blue with different colours of glitter: gold, pink and green are the ones I spotted! Lasted really well and it's amazing!

Rating
Easy to use = 8/10
Application = 8/10
Drying time = 7/10 for a liquid sand!
Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = 2
Finish = liquid sand texture madness!
Removal = tricky and annoying so best to use the tin foil method
Overall = 8/10
Purchased from = eBay

My Personal Rating = 8/10 super cool and lovely


Final thoughts on the San Francisco collection
Great quality polishes but I felt some of the colours were bog standard. I'm sure I have similar ones to them!

Favourites: Alcatraz..Rocks, Peace & Love & OPI and Dining Al Frisco
