Pretty & Polished Sand Art

I bought this in an Etsy Store frenzy quite a while ago.  It was in such demand so I knew I wanted to test it out.  I have to be honest, it isn't my favorite polish.  Not because there is anything wrong with it.  It is different and applies nicely but I guess I had it in my mind that it was going to be my favorite polish of all time and it sort of let me down a bit.  I decided to layer it over Zoya Wednesday.  Now, this may be another reason it is not my favorite but I will get back to that in a minute.

This is two coats of Zoya Wednesday with two coats of Sand Art.

I elected not to use a top coat at all because I liked the gritty feel and felt it was appropriate due to it's name.

It has a unique set of matte glitters mixed in together which would allow it to be layered over anything really.  Recently Katee over at A Girl and her Polish reviewed it and did a gradient over white.  I really liked the way that turned out and thought, I may try it again over black using a similar technique.

When I removed this polish using my standard technique for glitter removal that you can find here.  I ended up with green fingernails.  You can see how bad they were by checking out this post where I was able to get them clean with a product sold at Sally's.  At first I blamed Zoya Wednesday but I heard from others that they didn't have that problem which makes me wonder whether or not the acetone melted the Sand Art glitter and stained my nails.  I plan on testing this sometime in the future and will let you know.




  1. Thanks for the mention! I remember you saying something about Wednesday staining, that sucks! :(

  2. Argh, how annoying with the staining!
    It's still a pretty cool glitter - and who knows, it might grow on you :)

  3. I actually made some earrings with this combo! Love it!

  4. Sand art is such a cool color - it looks great!

  5. Sand Art looks great over Wednesday, too bad about the staining though! Yikes!
