I'd been toying with whether I should buy any of those for a while, and kept looking longingly at Sexy in Sequins, but I hadn't pulled the metaphorical trigger. I'd heard Nicole over at Young Wild and Polished rave about it a lot. I don't know why I kept hesitating. That clearance sale was a little nudge from above, "It's OK, get another nail polish. You know you want it."
I did. And I'm glad I succumbed.
This textured polish is sparkly and pretty. Just look.
OPI Nail Envy base coat, L'Oreal Sexy in Sequins (2 coats)
As you can see Sexy in Sequins is a textured polish. If you're not into this trend, move it along. Nothing to see here. If you still haven't jumped on the bandwagon but you're curious, run thy behind to Target and get this before it's gone. I think you'll like this one.
So here's the skinny. Sexy in Seqins is a deep Amethyst purple polish with with purple and gold glitter. It dries down to what I like to call a fashionable gum drop -- if a gumdrop were to dress up for a night out on the town.
If you're not used to textured polish, it feels a bit different going on. There's definitely some grit (to be expected). But L'Oreal did well with its formula because it applies easily. You'll need to use thicker coats so you don't end up with "bald" patches, but that's essentially the case for this type of finish.
The only negative thing I have to say is that it feels like it takes forever to dry. That's less of a ding against the polish and more of an eye opener for how co-dependent I am with my fast-drying top coats.
Well, there you have it folks, a non-green themed manicure post for you on St. Patrick's day.
Are there any Gold Dust Collection polishes you still want to get your hands on that you'll be visiting Target's clearance section for?
