Happy Monday ladies!
Sooo, I don’t know how it is in your country, but on 1st November in France, it’s a bank holiday for All Saints’ Day. So, although the clocks went back this weekend, and everyone was a bit groggy this morning, it’s nice to have a 4-day week 🙂
Of course, I will probably spend the extra day blogging & making polish. So I’ll start the week as I mean to go on…
I’ve already mentioned that the Ozotic 50X range is my absolute favourite, so I decided to do a bit of swatching. These polishes are fantastic, I wore them over a black base, which means they go further. And I swatched them with my lovely swatching lamps, but I’ve been wearing them for a while, and you definitely see the full colour shift under normal lighting.
Both polishes look purpley in the bottle, but 505 has a strong green shift. you also get blue and magenta with this polish! Like, all the time; sitting on the train, at the office, under the shower. My day has mostly been spent staring at my nails…
I’ve not much to say about the formula. It took a little while to dry, but it’s lasting very well – my top coat (that I added after the photos) isn’t one that is very good at protecting against wear, and yet after a day, I don’t even have any tip wear. Which is very rare for me!
I think this is my favourite of the two, because the shift is so dramatic!
I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again anyway – I do not swatch under water! I’m not a mermaid, so if my polish has to be under water to look good, then that’s not very helpful…
On to 506!
506 has less of a dramatic colour change, but the shift is still there. The main colour is blue, but it goes from a royal purple through blurple to a true blue, and there’s a hint of teal there too ❤
At some angles, I would swear it even passes through gunmetal grey, can you see it too?
Both polishes have a gorgeous microglitter sparkle to them, it’s almost like little stars are shining up through the polish. So, incredibly luminous and very mesmerising!
I’ll bring you some Hallowe’En-themed nail art for the next 3 days… Keep your eyes peeled (not literally… ewwww!)
