NOTD: Alcatraz Rocks! From OPI San Fran Collection

Posted on: August 13, 2013

Alcatraz Rocks! from OPI San Fancisco Collection is a sand finish polish, that indeed rocks! I love this color and when the sun hits it just right it is so sparkle-y, so pretty. It’s one of those manicures that you stare at your nails while driving, you all know what I’m talking about. But Officer, just look how gorgeous my nails look in the sun, how could I have seen this person I just ran into?

These pictures do not do this polish any justice at all. Alcatraz Rocks! is one of the few different shades OPI has come out with in a while. It has a purple base with a bunch of blue, so maybe I should say its a blurple base, once dry it does have the sand texture which if I’m being honest with you, I hate the texture. I will be glad when this fad is gone, baby gone. I do love all the shiny, pretty reflections though, it is pretty. I haven’t tried it with a top coat yet, when I do, I will post a picture on here.
I give Alcatraz Rocks! 4/5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟 (I had to take a star away for the texture, sorry for all you texture lovers)
You can purchase this anywhere OPI is sold. But if you like Alcatraz Rocks” or Peace & Love & OPI I wouldn’t wait too long. Those 2 are selling fast according to my distributor. He’s already re-ordered these 2 twice while the others he still has the original order. I know those were my 2 favorites from this collection, sounds like I’m not alone in that!

💅 As always , thanks for stopping by!

Hi Judi: I’m with you – I hate the texture fad and will not purchase any….can’t wait for it to be over – but with more textures coming out in the fall collections, looks like they are trying to keep the party going….looks like fungus to me – just want to remove it! Take care, Judy


Holy crap…that’s whole lotta pretty, isn’t it?! I’m with you, I don’t care for the textured polishes at all and more often than not, I use 2 coats of top coat over glitter!


I honestly don’t get why they keep coming out with it, no one I know is buying any of it. I’ve seen it for 49 cents at K-Mart and its been that same in of polish for 2 weeks now. Who buys it? Wo likes? Someone must. Maybe were just old? And set I our ways? Nah!

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
