Pastel Magic Sand ~ 724


Pastel Magic Sand ~ 724
Neon pink matte texture with silver shimmer

A very dear friend of mine went to Turkey, and she brought home five polishes for me, and this is one of them. It’s not a secret that I like the textured trend, and I really like bright colours and shimmers, so this polish is right up my alley!!

Application was a breeze and the pigmentation of the polish is really good. It was opaque in one easy coat, but I gave it two, just for the camera. Drying time is no less than fantastic. And the colour… the colour is just wham pow, in yer face pink! It was really difficult to catch the neon on camera, but here’s an attempt; two coats, no topcoat:



Isn’t that just great? I really, really like this!


I don’t have words to describe how much I like this.


I stamped on it, using my XL stamping plate “O” and I stamped with a black no name polish. I think black is perfect on this pang colour!  Here’s what that looked like:


I quite like this design. Here it is from a different angle:


I ended up topcoating it, but that was a mistake. The topcoat dulled the neon effect and made the mani more ordinary and that was definitely not the intention! Here’s the final look:


I’m more than impressed with this Pastel textured polish. I love to see a neon texture with shimmer – it’s really cool. So thumbs up and a great thanks for the lovely present! ♥

    1. The reason I didn't share your address is that you were on holiday, so you weren't in :P

  5. Woah, what a gorgeously bright pink! I don't think I've seen a neon matte texture yet, but I'm really loving this one! If it's possible, the texture makes the neon pink stand out even more. :) I also love the black design you added! :D
