ABC Challenge: Letter S - OPI Solitaire (Bond Girls Collection) + GIVEAWAY!

Howdy!

I thought I'd hate this textured trend and hey, how wrong was I? I just love it - when there's glitter or shimmer in it. I am still struggling to like "plain" textured polishes. We'll see, maybe time will prove me wrong (again)!

Solitaire, however, has been somewhat of a disappointment. I saw Yun's amazing swatches and fell in love with it, immediately purchased it off eBay, cursed the wait, slapped it on my nails and... meh. It's bumpy, yeah. But it's like a bumpy-fail. Not flat enough to be a classic polish, and not textured enough to be a liquid sand. Am I feeling the downfall because Strawberry Pink was absolutely ahhh-mazing?
On to some exciting news! I have a giveaway for you today! :D I just hit 35.000 visits and I feel like celebrating, so...

If you want to win the 4 polishes of Kiko's Sun Pearl Nail Lacquer Collection, just take your chance here! It's open internationally until June 6, and there will be one lucky winner :) Do you feel tempted?

Not yet? Then maybe you can take a look at my two swatches: River Green and Chili Pepper Red
a Rafflecopter giveaway

Planks a lot!      [Only a lacquer addict could laugh about that!]

  1. What can I say... opi. Hate it. LOL
    Well I am really dying to find a gorgeous white textured polish and it is still not available. But I knew I would hate opi's anyway so I never really bothered.
    One day I will find that one awesome white texture polish! I know it! And I promise to share ;-)

    Congratulations on the new milestone! And I will not play in your giveaway cause you know I already get this collection, but I will share it around! This one is too awesome to miss out on!!!

  3. Congrats and thanks for the giveaway! I'm torn between River Green and Amable Chartreuse...but they're all lovely! I almost bought Solitaire a few weeks ago, so maybe it's good that I passed since you don't seem thrilled with it.

  7. I think that my favorite would be Amable Chartreuse. Too bad you didn't like Solitaire. From what I have seen on swatches I think it looks gorgeous but maybe I would be disappointed like you.

  9. I'm not sure about textured polishes either-although this one is a lovely colour on you!

  10. I wasn't sure about the textured polishes either but I tried one and was surprised how much I liked it! Don't you hate it when a polish disappoints you though? Aargh!! lol

  11. I'm still on a fence about sand texture, too. I didn't like the Kiko sugars but I did love the P2's sands! Too bad you didn't like Solitaire on yourself, white sand seems so unique.

    ResponderEliminar
  12. every time I see Solitaire my eyes just look like that *.* that texture is just georgeous! looks so well on you... OMG, I just fell I MUST buy it for now (it's your fault). Gosh, why am I broke now? :( :< ehhh!!!

  15. I'm not really keep on the textured polish trend, they all just make me feel 'meh'. I like my polishes to be smooth to the touch. It's a pretty colour though!

    Also thanks for the giveaway, I've just entered :)

    ResponderEliminar
  16. I actually started to like the liquid sand polishes.. lol

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. Awesome giveaway! Thanks! I love the River Green.

  24. Sorry to have led you astray, my dear! <3 I do think it looks quite awesome on you. :P Have you tried a top coat? That might help smooth over the texture and make it more likable.
    Thank you for the awesome giveaway! I love the two greens... so pretty! :D

  29. When I saw for the first time a swatch of Solitaire, I immediately fell in love too. And after seeing your pics I still think it's gorgeous! Anyway, I don't think I will order it on line, I will wait the arrival of this collection in Italy, so I will see it in person and then I'll decide what to do.

  30. Bummer about Solitaire. I don't play well with goopy polishes. But, is it possible you got a bad bottle? Stranger things have happened on Ebay.

    Super giveaway!!! :) I'm now off to enter!

    Have a great weekend!

  31. I like that this isn't overtly textured and I really like the white! I'm dying for the textured milani polishes, the colors are so bright and fabulous!!! Congrats on your page views chica! Best feeling, hey? That light green is gorgeous!!!

    ResponderEliminar
  32. Congratulations for all you visits :)
    I love Blue Spot, but Amable Chartreuse is so special!

  34. I really like Solitaire - sorry to hear that it was a disappointment for you. The photos look good though.

    ResponderEliminar
  35. Sorry to hear about the disappointments you faced using the polish. Really sucks when polishes aren't what we expected. Although, seeing your swatch, it sure looks like a beautiful nail polish to wear on a wedding day. Lol! I guess it's still unique being a glittery white texture polish.

    Thank you so much for the giveaway and HUGE congratulations on the milestone! I think Amable Chartruese is my favourite out of the four!

    ResponderEliminar
  36. Such a bummer about Solitaire! It looked pretty but the formula is a huge turn off.

    Congrats on 35,000+ views! Thats awesome! :) I surprisingly think that Chili Pepper Red would be my favorite

  42. Congratulations on hitting 35K, and thank you for the giveaway!

    I had a little trouble with Solitaire too--I ended up having to do some fairly thin coats and let them dry completely before the next in order to get the right sandy texture, but once I figured it out, I loved it. Took me a couple of tries, though! >_<

    Loving these Kikos--they're so bright and shimmery! I think if I had to pick, my favourite would be Amiable Chartreuse, but that teal is so gorgeous too... ^_^

  43. This looks so gorgeous on you! I think I might need to get that one myself :P
