OMG Crystal Sand Nail Polish | Indian Red

Today marks the last of the 5-weekend days series on OMG Crystal Sand nail polish... featuring Indian Red.

OMG Crystal Sand Nail Polish | Indian Red

With names like Opal, Quartz, Citrine, and Peridot (as well as the ones I haven't tried yet - Emerald and Hematite), this one seemed to be a little out of place given its name. I wondered why they didn't name this Ruby, but I guess the reason for that is that this is not really fiery red in color, but more of reddish-fuchsia.

Of the five ones I tried, this also had the least amount of crystal sand particles, which looked more like glitters when applied on nails.

Very pigmented, though it needs two coats to get the great nail color, as one coat tend to look uneven. I went for three very thin coats, though... because I guess I am already used to having three coats, regardless of what nail polish I use. Because the crystal sand wasn't as much as the other shades, I liked having this without the top coat. It still had the textured finish (after all, it still has crystal sand), but some parts of my nails had quite a smooth finish. Like the other I have tried, this dried quick, too. :)

Applying it with a topcoat makes it look bolder, shiny, and the crystal sand sparkles when hit by light. I compared this with sugar glazed strawberries, and I think going for the jelly clear top coat made it look like I just did a glitter sandwich.

In conclusion:
I like the OMG Crystal Sand nail polishes. For 18.75 pesos a bottle (if you buy it in Landmark), it surely is a very cheap way of having glam nails. These nail polishes are Toluene and DBP free, and quite easy to remove compared to most glitter nail polishes, so I wouldn't hesitate going for this again. I just hope they'd come up with more colors - maybe a Garnet, Sapphire, Turquoise, and Diamond, and I do hope their products would be widely available. Aside from the Landmark, you can get these at Divisoria and some online stores, though their prices are somewhat more expensive - online stores sell these at p25 to p40, a store in Divisoria sells this at p35 per bottle. 

I still am on a lookout for the other two OMG Crystal Sand nail polishes - Emerald and Hematite.


  1. So pretty! It's good to know that it comes off easily. That's the main reason I don't wear glitter very often.

  2. Hi Ladies, I really like textures polishes. I just tried my first (OPI What Wizardy Is This) and fell in love. This is an awesome color too!

  3. I live in the U.S. Where can I find these? I didn't see them on Ebay. THanks!

    1. Oh, I really don't know where to buy this in the U.S., sorry.
