OPI Tiffany Case is the glam bright blue Liquid Sand nail polish from the OPI Bond Girls Collection due out in May.
If you weren’t interested in the dark and brooding OPI Vesper that I showed yesterday, you may have a soft spot for Tiffany Case.
While I can appreciate both, so far, of the two, I prefer OPI Tiffany Case because it’s reminding me that spring weather will soon be upon us. (Mother Nature, pay attention to the calendar! It’s already supposed to be spring!)
I’m in love with this blue Liquid Sand! It’s eye-catching without being too flashy. There’s just enough glitz to make it feel like a special manicure.

OPI Tiffany Case Review
Aside from the usual green and purple suspects, blues follow closely behind in my order of favourite nail-polish colours to wear.
I find that blues tend to look smashing on so many different skin tones, and the right shade of blue (like this vibrant sky blue) can really brighten up your mood (in additional to your fingertips)!
Tiffany Case by OPI has a base that looks like a metallic sky blue. It almost has an icy vibe to it…like what I imagine the Snow Queen would wear to Stars on Ice. But, since I don’t like to think of winter, I’ll just say that it reminds me of a mermaid’s tail as it glistens in the sun. 😉
Tiffany Case by OPI has the cool Liquid Sand texture that I’m a big fan of. It feels like and looks like a rock. The finish isn’t gritty, but there’s noticeable texture.
One thing I absolutely adore about the Liquid Sands is that the dry time is so fast. Of course it depends on what base coat you use underneath and how thickly you apply it, but for me, even though I use medium coats, it dries in a snap!
What I also love about it is that it sparkles like crazy in pretty much any lighting condition. There’s something very glam about it – diva worthy! (There are two different sizes of glitter in this. The fine glitter is blue, and the larger pieces are silver.)
If you don’t like the matte texture, you can put a shiny top coat over it to transform it into a glittery polish.
The lighting conditions were pretty bad and dim, so I didn’t get a chance to photograph a swatch of it on a nail wheel with a shiny top coat. I’ll probably update this post later to include one.
Edit: OPI Tiffany Case with a Shiny Top Coat
Below you can see it when worn shiny. It’s pretty, but I’m such a fan of the Liquid Sand finish that I prefer to wear it that way.
Application & Formula
Application of Tiffany Case was superb! I had no problems with it – it flowed onto the nail easily, and I found it simple to control.
One coat provided wonderful coverage, but a second coat was pure perfection. You definitely won’t need a third coat.
Final Verdict: 9/10
I really loved wearing OPI Tiffany Case! It’s one of those shades that emphasizes your nails and gives them that needed pop of spring colour! This type of blue makes me happy, and I love how much it sparkles in the sun, in artificial light, under bright lights, and pretty much any lighting condition!
If you could create any Liquid Sand nail polish, what colours would be in it? Did you like the Liquid Sands from the first time they were introduced? Or did they gradually grow on you?
