Swatch - OPI Pussy Galore

Pink polish anyone? Is it weird that pink is often times not people's favourite polish colour? Maybe it is just too average compared to the array of colours and finishes that now exists after nail polish's popularity exploded? Admittedly, I cannot say it is my favourite polish colour either. However, I do like it as a palette cleanser, which brings us to this post!

OPI Pussy Galore:
Cotton candy pink frost with pink glitter liquid sand. This was a little sheer. On the first coat there was VNL and depending on the thickness of your second coat you may or may not see VNL. I did a thicker second coat to get rid of the VNL. This guy is not glitter-tastic like what we have seen previously from OPI. It just shimmers delicately in the sun (no shimmering indoors, sadly).

Pictures show two coats without top coat.


Specifications:
Formula - Okay, easy application but on sheer side
Pigmentation - Below average, VNL on first coat but thick second coat fixes that problem
Dry time - Average for liquid sands (personal experience: slower than regular polish)
Shine - None, this is a liquid sand
Wear - Tip wear on second day
Removal - Average for textured polishes (harder than creams, easier than glitters)
Staining - None

Well I must say I didn't like this polish as much as I thought I would. I went into this knowing it wasn't going to be sparkle-licious, but maybe this was a little too boring for me. However, this polish is great for work! It's a soft, subtle colour; yet the texture makes it more interesting than a regular pink cream. Plus, seeing people's reaction to the polish name is pretty amusing ;)

What are your thoughts of this polish? Is it too boring or does the texture make up for it?
