and China Glaze Tongue & Chic

Have you heard of The Beauty Clutch?  If not The Beauty Clutch is an e-tailer selling most major polish brands. We all need another website to browse during late night shopping sprees :P I was provided these polishes to review for you to show you a little sample of what The Beauty Clutch carries!

First up is OPI Alcatraz…Rocks! I was excited to review this one, it was the one polish from the OPI San Francisco Collection I had to have. It's also my first Liquid Sand polish! Alcatraz...Rocks is described as a "blue toned purple with multi colored glitter". This is one of the most unique textured polishes I own and have tried. Beautiful polish!

I did 2 coats Alacatraz...Rocks. It had a great application and dry time. I was really impressed with Liquid Sand after trying this polish. I'm not sure if it's just me, but I don't feel like [this] Liquid Sand polish is as textured as PixieDust polishes or the Julie G Gumdrops. Doesn't bother me though. It also seemed to get less textured over the days I wore it, not sure if this had to do with lotion or what lol it was weird to me!

China Glaze Tongue & Chic is from the Autumn Nights Collection. I really like the jewel tone colors from this Fall collection. I knew I had to have this one, you know me and dark greens. I feel like this a color Zoya should of had in their Satins Collection! Tongue & Chic is a "emerald metallic shimmer". Out of all the emerald polishes out there, I think this one is my favorite I've seen.

This was a 1 coater for me! Color me impressed, I was expecting 2. The application was without issues, smooth. The dry time was also great. This polish was just all around impressive to me! I did have some issues getting the color off sides of my skin/cuticles :-\ I'm sure after a shower or the dishes it would of gone away lmao.

This is a new-to-me brand. The solid colors are kind of meh to me, but they look like they have a lot of awesome glitters... so of course I had to try the one full of 2 things that make my life go round: 1) square glitter and 2) iridescent glitter. Twinkle Squares is filled with "square dark silver glitter with iridescent blue/multi colored glitter". This polish pops amazingly over a darker color! I just love it.

I did 2 coats of Verity Twinkle Squares over China Glaze Tongue & Chic. The application wasn't bad. There's a lot of glitter packed into that bottle so it tends to pile up, needing a few brush strokes to even it out. Not a big issue really. The dry time was good and didn't give me issues either!

As I said before, all these polishes were provided to me by The Beauty Clutch. You can find them on their website along with ton of other great polishes! You can also find The Beauty Clutch on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest to keep track of their stock and sales!

TTYLZ!
