OPI Be a Dahlia Won't You & OPI Get Your Number liquid sand

Today I rediscovered some OPI minis in the drawer. OPI Be a Dahlia and Liquid Sand 'Get Your Number'.

See the holographic sparkles?

Be a Dahlia Won't You is a vivid pink with a pink-purple shimmery glass fleck effect. It is a thin polish so is not at all forgiving for any imperfections on the nails. Application was good and dry time was fast.

Get Your Number is a dark shade of sky blue. It is full of holographic sparkles and they add an interesting aspect to the sand effect. No top coat was used here. I have seen this effect glossed up with Seche Vite and it gives a great effect. I might add it later! Application is good and three coats made gave an opaque cover on most of my nail - but I can see light through the free edge portion. Dry time is longer than I had expected for the second and third coats.

Although the bottles are very small (3.75ml, a 1/4 of a 15ml full size bottle) both apply well. No gloop, no flooding the cuticles and both painted well.
