OPI Nail Polish in Alcatraz… Rocks – Swatches and Review

When I sat down to do my nails last week I was feeling quite bummed. I tried to cheer myself up with bright summer shades, but it wasn’t working. So after two failed attemps I told myself to go where my true nail polish love lies: with dark vampy shades. When I spotted this OPI nail polish in the stash I received from my sister-in-law I immediately said “you’re the one!” Let’s take a closer look at Alcatraz… Rocks.

The brush is flat, which I absolutely love, and this one worked wonderfully!

Alcatraz… Rocks is a liquid sand nail polish that was part of the OPI Fall 2013 San Francisco Collection. It’s a beautiful dark purple filled with micro glittery goodness.

This nail polish is almost fully opaque with one coat, but two coats give it more depth and oomph. And, being a textured nail polish, I don’t need to add a top coat so it saves me time too. 🙂

It’s always so hard to capture the sparkling effect of glitters on camera and none of these pictures do this nail polish justice.
