If you have never tried textured polishes I would start with this collection. Very easy to apply and so unique. The colours all dried to the perfect textures look and they all compliment each other so beautifully! Perfect for summertime, I love it!

I'm not usually one for pinks, but I couldn't get this one out of my head when I first saw swatches. I caved and got it, and its shimmer is just amazing. It sparkles even in low light, and in bright light it is dazzling. This is only my second liquid sand polish and I like it a lot! It took me 3 coats to get it opaque, but you could probably get away with 2. I'm not sure this pink is super flattering on my skintone, but the shimmer I cannot stop staring at, so it gets 4 stars in my boat! Really great for spring/summer.

This is quite possibly the best polish I've ever used..it goes on easy & dries fast...I did 3 thin coats for full coverage with a layer of clear coat underneath and on top. The texture effect is so awesome my nails almost look faux and the color & sparkle are just glorious!! I'm going to order more from this collection!

I do solemnly swear that I am in love with this polish. It seriously looks like some fantastic tropical star fish in its beautiful light pink coloration with just the perfect matching and subtle orange flare peaking out from underneath. This polish will have you staring at it as you wear it on your nails, and you will be saying ahh I am so glad I bought this polish. Covers extremely well in max two coats and feels and looks so amazing.

I have used this polish almost half a dozen times so far, and every time I love it more than the time before- I just love it sooo much! The pink with gold shimmer for the base along with the pink glittery sand particles really does remind me of the texture of a starfish. It is SO pretty and I haven't had any major issues with chipping unless I'm being hard on my nails, though it was nothing out of the ordinary. This is my third day with my latest mani of this polish and I don't even have any tip wear at all yet. I will be ordering more soon as I feel this polish will be a staple through the spring and summer for me!

This is a very pretty polish. The pink with gold overtones is great for Spring and Summer. Two or three coats are needed for full effect. It did chip a little quicker than I expected but I think this is true for most liquid sand polishes.

For me, this polish is the standout of this China Glaze collection. A pretty light pink colour that's perfect for the office, but adds a little flash with beautiful golden sparkle and the cool sand-like texture. Unlike the somewhat similar OPI Christmas collection (Make Him Mine/Silent Stars Go By), I find the textured polishes in this collection keep their sand-like texture longer...up to a week as opposed to 3/4 days for the OPI polishes. This polish is also much easier to remove than most other sand polishes I've tried.
On the negative side, this polish is somewhat sheer for my tastes; I had to do three coats at minimum to achieve the full coverage that I prefer. Perhaps because I had to use several thicker coats, the wear time for this polish was somewhat shorter than I usually get with liquid sand polishes...3 or 4 days as compared to the week+ that I normally get.

I love textured polish, and I love pink, so this is great. Two coats for opacity, fairly average drying time, easy removal.

Love this polish. Okay formula. Two coats for full coverage. Amazing shimmer in the polish. A bit slow to dry, which is my only complaint.
