Hi ladies, the weekend will be here soon! Is it me, or is this week flashing past really quickly?
I’m on a massive duochrome kick at the moment, and I’ve got a few hanging around in my swatchbox from my favourite series – the Ozotic 50X range. I don’t know about you, but I find these polishes quite expensive, so I get one every now and then and hide it away in my swatch box (a Jimmy Choo vanity case) until I feel the urge! Well, the one I chose this week is 503. This is a gorgeous polish that shifts from a bright grassy green to gold, to gunmetal grey with a hint of violet!
I used one thin coat over a black base, mostly to save on polish. And (because I’m not a mermaid, dammit!) I didn’t take these swatches underwater, they’re just under a nice lamp. I wore this polish for a few days and saw all of the colours all the time! So although direct light or sunlight will usually bring out duochromes best, this polish does shift constantly, even when the light isn’t ideal.
I did put on a nice lick of top coat, and wore this for 3 days (unheard of for me! I usually change my polish every day) and didn’t have any chipping issues at all.
Of course, no application issues. It took a little while to dry, but nothing out of the ordinary – especially considering I had a base coat, and three coats of black under it!
I am so in love with the sparkle of the pigment they use! Go on, let’s have a couple more photos 😉
So yeah, I know the whole 50X range has been discontinued. But some stockists still have them! For those of you in Europe, I recommend Pshiiit’s Boutique – it’s in French, but you can Google-translate the page (click here) if you want 🙂 I’m not affiliated in any way, but have ordered a few times, and I’ve always had a great experience!
If you’re elsewhere, or if Pshiiit doesn’t have the one you want in stock, Picture Polish has a handy list of stockists on this page of their website.
First up – WOW! THANK YOU ❤ ❤ ❤ and secondly – may I please have 2 more for Hallowe’En? Teehee 😀
