normally I'd crop these pictures, but look at the fall foliage in the background; so pretty
by lamp light
look at all the different sparkles!!!! ahhhhh!!
without topcoat--it's pulling waaaaaay purple here, but look how sparkly!
and just for fun, here's what happens when I try to take a selfie with Remy lately. I'm trying to make a noise to get him to pay attention and he's all STEP OFF, TALK TO THE PAW.
Oh. My. God. This polish. I can't. I can't even. It's just too beautiful. The base is sort of a smoky indigo that leans more toward the blue side in real life. Then it's just packed with different colors of shimmer. Seriously, there's gold, green, blue, pink, purple...that's why I included that really blurry picture up there, because it does a good job at showing the shimmer. A couple coats of topcoat really bring out the sparkle, too. I have to say that when mattes were trending in 2009 I was not into it. But I LOOOOOVE the textured finishes that have been happening for the past year. I have a couple other ones, including Jinx from OPI (which is aaaawwweeesome), but I feel like Alcatraz...Rocks is basically the end-all-be-all of Liquid Sands. It's too lovely. The formula was great, and I used two coats.
So now for the other reason I'm excited about this post...I actually bought Alcatraz...Rocks for myself back in September and never used it. So now I have two bottles: the one sent to me by Beyond Polish, and my unused bottle. And that's where the GIVEAWAY comes in. There's no reason for me to have two bottles, so I want to give one to one of you.
