Want to know what my favourite Liquid Sand from the Bond Girls Collection coming out in May is? OPI Jinx!
You may remember seeing this when I did a sneak peek of it on Instagram.
This orange-based coral nail polish is such a fun spring/summer colour.
It’s what I would describe as charismatic – OPI Jinx is like an arresting sunset that takes your breath away and commands your attention.
Although I wasn’t home to take photos of this in the sunlight, I assure you that it sparkles like a demon in the sun! It’s like glittery lava – hot stuff!
If you’re looking for a polish that makes you think of the beach and summer barbecues, it’s Jinx!
P.S. My all-time favourite Liquid Sand that I’ve worn so far is OPI Get Your Number, but OPI Jinx comes close behind in second!

OPI Jinx Review
You want to talk about a nail polish that is like fire? Jinx by OPI has a mix of tangerine and light orange glitter that really pops. Gosh, when you see how lively it is, you’ll expect it to burst into flames. I love this polish so much, and I know I’ll be wearing it a lot.
The tangerine-leaning coral is the ultimate summer colour, in my mind. And I don’t have many orange corals, so this is a welcomed addition to my collection. It’s bold, vibrant, and full of life like a person with a hearty laugh and a friendly smile.
This is a shade that I feel can complement a wide range of skin tones from the fair to the rich. And, even if you don’t wear a lot of oranges or corals, I urge you to give this one a shot. It’s amazing. (Hehe, I think you can tell that I kind of, sorta, a little bit love this polish, right?) 😉
And if you dig nail polishes like OPI DS Luxurious, OPI Jinx will be right up your alley.
In case you’re thinking that Jinx by OPI looks flat in the manicure photos above, trust me, it’s not! In person, it’s just as sparkly as what you can see in the bottle!
The awesome Liquid Sand finish has noticeable texture, but it’s not sharp and scratchy like sandpaper. It’s actually a very subtle texture. (Even if you typically don’t like texture on your nails, I urge you to try the Liquid Sands if you haven’t already. It’s quite the fun experience!)
And even though it looks gritty, it’s very easy to remove. You won’t be scrubbing your nails raw to get it off like you would with a typical glitter polish.
Application & Formula
As with every single OPI Liquid Sand nail polish I’ve worn, Jinx is no exception – it applied easily. I could control the polish on the brush, and it dried quickly. I really appreciate the quick dry time, especially because lately my life has been jam-packed, so any time I can save is a good thing.
(I have a full-time job, and after work, I squeeze in a lot of things – socializing, going on dates, visiting my mom, doing lots of freelance work, and also, of course, blogging for Swatch And Learn. I like how my lifestyle is so hectic because it keeps me on my toes, and I’m never bored. Sometimes I wonder how I can fit everything into my schedule! But, like anything that you enjoy doing or that you think is worthwhile, you make time for it.) 🙂
Final Verdict: 10/10
Jinx is an amazing Liquid Sand nail polish. OPI really knocked it out of the park with this one, and so I’m giving it a perfect score! From the finish to the colour, it was a winner!
