Clearly, OPI shares my long distance love affair with the city as its the subject of their Fall 2013 collection. Though, this year they have expanded their usual twelve color offering to introduce three new Liquid Sand shades. Today I’m showing you the first half of the collection which consists of blue and brown hues, including the three textured nail polishes. One of which I’m simply swooning over.
