Ozotic 502 Swatches *picture heavy*

Ozotic 502 Collage


This is the last of my Ozotic collection, I wanted to get around to swatching them all, so here ya go!

502 changes from red to burgundy, through orange to gold. There’s a hint of green in the bottle, but I didn’t get that to come out on the nail.

Application is pretty standard for an Ozotic – I used one coat over black, since that brings out the colour shift most strongly. The swatches aren’t underwater, and there’s no top coat 🙂 Continue reading

Ozotic 504 Nail Polish Collage

Happy Hump Day honies!

We’re half way thorugh the week, so I thought I’d celebrate with a duochrome photo fest 🙂 today’s nails are Ozotic – 504. I know that these guys are going to be selling out since they aren’t being manufactured any more, but a few are still available in some places, so check out the Picture Polish distributor list if you really want to get hold of them. All of my Ozotics are my own purchases, so this isn’t a press sample or anything. Pictures are of 2 coats over black, but no top coat.

Hallowe’En Nail Art… At last!

Haha, why am I so disorganised at the moment? I chalk it up to working in tourism… I’m in ‘off-season’ mode, which means lots of tea and doing everything last minute. Anyhow, I’m finally on the Hallowe’En wagon!

love Hallowe’En! I actually get a bit sad that no-one I know in France celebrates it. But, I’m not sure if that’s really because I love Hallowe’En or because I don’t like being an adult so much, and it’s a great occasion for adults who want to dress up as vampires/werewolves/pirates…

Well the first Hallowe’En nail art I did was a guest post for the fabulous Lacquered by Blue Vanilla, click the pic to check it out!

Models Own Zest a Peal-001

I had no idea that I was one of the first WordPress blogs that the ladies followed! That’s so sweet 🙂 hopefully I’m a bit better at this blogging thing than I was back then! Xin Yu is always one my top commenters, and I’ve been following her blog for ages too! Speaking of which, I’m kind of ashamed that I don’t comment much on other people’s blogs. With running my blog, and making polish, I admit that I skim-read other blogs. I guess at least I’m stacking up the resolutions for New Years already 😉

Anywhoo, on to my second Hallowe’En nail art of the season!

Ozotic 505 & 506 *Picture-Heavy*

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.Ozotic 506 Collage

Ozotic 503

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!

Ozotic – 528 (and piCture pOlish PMT)

So maybe I should have invited some guest bloggers to cover my holidays, haha !

Ah well, you’re still stuck with me 😉

Today I have a gorgeous duochrome glitter to show you – Ozotic 528. I popped this over piCture pOlish PMT because I’m a bit obsessed with trying to stick to the same brand for different polishes in each mani… I won’t swatch this for you, since better bloggers have been there and done that, but here’s the result I got with a bit of striping tape…
