OPI ~ Alcatraz… Rocks



OPI ~ Alcatraz… Rocks
Purple base with various colours of glitters, textured

Do you know those polishes that you really want for a long time, and when you finally get them, they end up in the box of untrieds? *sigh* Alcatraz… Rocks is such a polish for me.

There’s no particular reason for this to sit in the box for so long, because it’s a fabulous textured polish. The formula is amazing - just so nice to work with and the polish covers beautifully in two easy coats. The drying time is really good. Great result.

Take a look at two coats and no topcoat in the sun:


I see purple, pink, green and gold glitter. Possible more!


Let’s have a look at it in the lightbox, shall we?


I simply love this polish, I’m so glad I bought it!


Do you know the feeling of letting certain polish sit unloved in a box for no particular reason?


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Textured with glitter
Overall impression: Wow, this is a fantastic textured polish!
Buy again: Yes

  1. This is beautiful, I own Finger Paints, Sparkle in the Sky which is pretty close. I don't have polish that I don't use for no reason. Generally if I let a polish sit it's because I'm still looking for the perfect time for it to make it's début :P

    1. That's a great point!
      I mostly didn't use this for a long time because there were so many others I needed to try first :)

    1. I usually topcoat my textures because I think they look better that way, but I didn't with this one :)

    1. It's weird when it's like that, especially when it's a polish you've been drooling over :D
