I Love Nail Polish – Sirene

I Love Nail Polish - ILNP - Sirene - Collage

Hey ladies!

I hope everyone is having a better week than I am. Work is really tough right now. Long hours, and I have to try to keep a cool head when it feels like everyone else is freaking out. It’s pretty draining.

Still, on a more positive note, I have a gorgeous multichrome to show you again, by I Love Nail Polish. Sirene is also in the ultrachrome line, which means you don’t have to put it over a black base. My swatches are with no base coat, and no top coat either. It doesnt dry fast, but if you’re in a rush, a quick dry top coat will be your best friend! Continue reading

I Love Nail Polish – Nostalgia

I Love Nail Polish Nostalgia

 

Yep, I have another photo-heavy duochrome swatch post for you 🙂

I love I Love Nail Polish! It’s a little pricey, but totally worth it. So I’m trying to collect all of the Ultrachromes. I got Birefringence, Cygnus Loop, Mutagen and My Little Glacier and talked about them in this post, and today I have the fifth to show you, Nostalgia. As usual, totally bought with my own money, and if you like what you see, you can order it here 🙂

Also as usual, these swatches are not taken underwater. If any mermaids are reading, lucky you! Your nails must look great 😉

I used 3 coats over a clear base, and finished it off with a coat of Sèche Vite (although it dries shiny anyway). Nostalgia has a very original colour shift (at least, that I haven’t seen before!) : merlot-rose-copper-gold-green !

I only have 2 reservations about this polish – (1) you need 3 coats. Two coats remains visibly patchy; and (2) it does show brush strokes a little. So, neither are really deal breakers, but if they are a very big deal for you, then it’s best to know that before you pay $12.50 for the bottle (12ml) 🙂

And here’s some more pictures!

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

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.

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…

Ozotic 505 Collage

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 *picture heavy*

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!
