OPI Jinx Swatches & Review

OPI Jinx Swatches & ReviewWant 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!

Key Notes

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.) 🙂


  • Orange-coral with a fiery personality
  • Liquid Sand finish has an interesting texture
  • Dries quickly

  • There’s a Con? (Hello, I gave this polish a Holy Grail Status!)

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!

Which is your favourite orange-coral nail polish? How many orange lacquers do you have in your collection? What was the first Liquid Sand you wore? Or, if you’ve never tried any, which is the first you’d like to try?

      Hey Bathelen!

      You’re very welcome! I absolutely loved wearing this shade – it’s bright and cheerful…and of course the Liquid Sand texture has me swooning. Glad that we can swoon together. It makes being a nailphile more fun when you can share the excitement with others.

    This one is gorgeous!!
    I thought it would be way more like The Impossible of the Mariah Carey series but it is definitely not… *want want want want*

      Hey Joyce!

      Someone asked me if I could do a comparison post between this and The Impossible. Even though they’re different, I think I’ll still do it in case somebody finds it helpful. *Writes it on my To-Do List*

      Hey Erin Ortiz!

      Definitely! And it’s such a saturated colour with lots of personality. You’ll especially love how much it sparkles.

    I’ve been drooling over this one since I saw Marta’s manicure with the “Honey Ryder” accent nail and this just makes me want it more!!! Thanks for the review, I’ve been waiting for this one. I love “Can’t Let Go” the most, and coral is a fav colour for me so I will most likely pick this up when it hits the stores.

    I am looking forward to seeing this in person, your description sounds like it is amazing! Thanks again, Mary!

      Hey Candice!

      Same here! When I was hanging out with Marta and she wore this, I probably said 3 times throughout the day to her how flattering Jinx was on her – gorgeous! Then again, Marta can pull off so many shades and have me drooling. 😉

      I really think you’ll love Jinx – it sparkles like crazy, and the colour is very fun-loving. If you do end up getting it, please let me know how you like it.

        I got Jinx yesterday and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the colour. It is so beautiful in person, with the depth that the texture adds, the all over sparkle, within the beautiful coral and orange/gold combo! ACK. When I woke up this morning and spotted my nails, I smiled. You are right, this IS better in person than photos, it comes to life on the nail! This will be a favourite for the summer, I can already tell. 🙂

        I also picked up Honey Ryder because I loved it as an accent on Marta and it is a lovely colour as well. I can see myself using it as an accent for so many different manicures, especially any shade of turquoise. 🙂 It has some depth and sparkle that make it a great accent (as I don’t love gold enough to put it on the majority of my fingernails).

        Mary, thanks for your comprehensive review. I am in love!

          Hey Candice!

          Isn’t it such a wonderful thing how nail polish can really boost a person’s spirits just by its beauty? That never fails to impress me. And I think that’s why I love nail polish so much. Not only can it help you express yourself, but it can put a smile on your face like that. *Snaps fingers*

          I’m really happy to hear that you’ve also been enjoying OPI Jinx – it’s really such a lively, happy colour. Absolutely perfect!

          It’s my pleasure to bring readers these reviews. It’s fun and refreshing to hear from readers that share a similar appreciation for (hehe, or addiction to) nail polish. Thanks for taking the time to leave me a sweet comment to tell me what you think!

      Hey Lizzy!

      It takes a mature person to still appreciate something that they wouldn’t wear themselves, so kudos for that! 🙂

  3. Amanda

    I definitely want this color when it comes out!

    I just tried my first Liquid Sand (Get Your Number) and I was really impressed. So, so sparkly which is what I love! Can’t wait to try out some more 🙂

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Amanda!

      YAYYYY! Whenever I hear that someone tried Get Your Number, I get sooooo excited because it’s my all-time favourite Liquid Sand!

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Cal!

      Although the other Liquid Sands are pretty, I’d suggest that you get the full-size Jinx. You’ll definitely wear it many times, and if you get the mini set, you’ll probably end up buying the big bottle of Jinx anyway. 😉

      Hey another Cristina!

      Oh yes! I saw comparison swatches and thought they looked really similar, too. I’m so glad because this is an awesome shade to own, especially for the summer.

    Hiya, Mary!!

    Okay, so I bought this mainly because I’ve never walked past a bright polish that didn’t go home with me.

    Yes, it’s pretty w/o topcoat, but the sand texture drives me bonkers–I spend all day touching it. I decided to topcoat it so that it wouldn’t be so distracting…and omg!!! I’m getting stopped in halls and on elevators because the dimensional color literally jumps off of the nail.

    It takes a few coats of ‘cheap-coat’ followed by a coat of quick-drying topcoat to smooth it out, but the results are SO worth the effort.

      Hey Karen!

      I’ll bet those bright nail polishes are anxiously waiting for you to walk by. Why? It spells FREEEEEDOM! 😉

      Hehe, I guess I’m the opposite. I just LOVE the Liquid Sand texture. I really miss the grittiness when I go back to wearing a regular shiny polish.
