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…

Ozotic – 607 *picture heavy*

Ozotic 607 Macro


I’ve not tried Ozotic before, but I’m glad I have !

The sun has finally come out in Paris, and that makes me want to wear loads of holo polish 🙂 607 totally fits the bill – and the dusty rose colour is very work friendly!

All of these swatches are 3 (thin) coats, it’s nearly opaque all on it’s own! Despite the glittery texture,it removes very easily, and has a totally smooth finish – these photos are without top coat.

This polish is very holographic ! Usually under natural/incadescent (typical indoor lighting), most polish isn’t very holo. You can see that 607 is already glowing, despite the pale base colour !

piCture pOlish – Sparkle & Atomic

I’ve more piCture pOlish swatches for you today 🙂

There is nothing I love more on a sunny day (other than the sun itself, of course), than a nice shiny nail polish ! So I decided to go for Sparkle and Atomic by piCture pOlish.


Sparkle is a silvery base full of tiny rainbow-coloured glitter. As a glitter, I expected it to dry quite fast. It didn’t, can you see the huge smudge on my middle finger?

It took 3 coats for opacity, totally normal given how pale it is. This is the finish without top coat, it’s quite matte and rough.

Atomic has a very similiar formula, but is opaque in 2 coats. It has a mix of silvery and delicate holo glitter that is absolutely fabulous !

As much as I love these sexy little bottles, I’m still not getting on with the brushes… My cuticle line feels very messy !

Macro Monday – Purple Peahen

I’m back !

I had a lovely time back home, of course, I grabbed a few nail polishes – the swatches are in progress 🙂

If you follow Eeek, you’ll know that I met up with her while I was over!  She is an absolute sweetheart, it was really lovely. I made the most of the occasion to get her feedback on my first ever nail polish creation !

I’ve decided to call this one Purple Peahen, I only made a batch of three (one of which went to Eeek), and so far, so good, it hasn’t separated or anything. It’s only a few weeks old and needs to sit for a bit longer, but if all goes well, I’ll be selling them on Etsy !


It’s not the  best macro in the world, I admit that freely… So check out Eeeek’s swatch 🙂

Darling Diva – Chandelle

Well, I couldn’t get a good macro shot of this one !

Darling Diva‘s Chandelle is a pretty glittery polish in earthy greens and coppers, the coverage is very light, so I put this one on over O.P.I.’s My Vampire is Buff.

I went for two coats then a top coat. There is a bit of a curve to the lightest green hex glitter, but I’ve been told it has been reformulated. If it bothers you, it might be worth asking about that before you order. It’s not really really curly though, and I actually like the extra reflections that that details adds 🙂

Darling Diva - Chandelle


The brush is pretty nice, standard but good quality. The formula, as always, is great, no sinking, no gloopiness, very very smooth !


I’ll be back with some real posts tomorrow, this is the last scheduled one while I’m on holiday back home in the UK 🙂 looking forward to seeing what you’ve all been up to !

Fanchromatic Nails – Between Two Worlds

I may or may not have stalked Fanchromatic on Etsy until this polish was in stock !

Between Two Worlds is a lilac gelly that tends to a slightly grey tinge. It has a lovely mix of Earth-toned glitter in it, which is beautifully distributed by the brush, doesn’t sink or stick to the insides of the bottle !

I tried 3 coats with no undies, and it looked pretty opaque to me, though since it is a gelly, I was very generous to get this effect, and this did leave the polish a bit thick. I’ll certainly wear it with undies in the future !

This is a great little polish for spring/summer, definitely glad I got it !
