OPI Alcatraz Rocks

Hello!  Today I have for you OPI Alcatraz Rocks.  I know I'm a little late on the band wagon for this but I only just got my hands on this one.  I wasn't sure I even wanted it until I kept seeing pics of it. There's plenty of sparkle here, even without top coat.

Dark purple base jam packed with lots of purple and holographic glitters. This is the liquid sand polish so it dries to that nice rough, matte texture, which can be left alone or put a top coat on and the sparkle is magnified.  One coat of top coat will give shine and retain most of the texture. It took three coats of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri to smooth it out almost completely.

These pics are without top coat and taken in the bright light of a north facing window. All pics are two coats.

These are with one coat of the Insta-Dri top coat, taken under a daylight lamp, the first one with added camera flash.

Again, this is a fully packed glitter polish so the formula is thick but not so much that it's difficult to work with.  I love the deep purple of it.  Almost blackened in some light and the sparkle is mesmerizing.

I wasn't sure I was going to like the textured polishes but now that I have a few in my stash, I'm a fan.  Got any in your stash?  Let me know in the comments.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned.
