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 – 744

Now I’m not complaining as such, I know that a lot of ladies really struggle to grow their nails nice and long (I’m gonna do a nail care series to try to help you out) but I had a bit of a panic moment today because of mine !

When your nails get to a certain length, it’s really hard to get coins out of supermarket caddies (US translation : Shopping Carts – out here in France we often have to put a coin in them to use them, because we’re all thieves, ya know…), because you can’t get enough purchase, and the coin only sticks out a few millimetres – that’s hardly a big deal, and usually my bloke is on hand to help. In the worst case, it’s hardly a big waste – actually it might be handy for the next person to come along who forgot their coin.

But nowadays, a lot of cash points (US: ATMs) have devices on them that are supposed to help secure them or something (which cover the slot and leave it less exposed so conmen can’t add scanners to them to copy your card as you put it in), but this means your card only sticks out by a few millimetres. So this evening I went to the cash point on the way home, and couldn’t for the life of me get the damn card out ! I nearly had to ask a passing stranger to help !! You know, it really is a panic moment when the machine starts beeping furiously at you…

So what do I do? Do I cut them? Apart from the little tear I repaired recently, they’re feeling pretty strong and healthy, so I kinda feel like that would be a waste. The other option I can think of is to carry tweezers around with me for those “just in case” moments… But that would be lame, wouldn’t it? Would a little pair of pliers be more dignified ?


I know, I know, you don’t want to hear about my first world problems! More about nail polish 🙂


I totally love Ozotics! Literally the only problem I can think of with them is that they number the polish instead of naming it. Which means that every damn time I order a bottle I have to go through my order history to make sure I don’t already have it, haha !

744 should have been called “Perfect Periwinkle”, in my opinion 🙂

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 28. TV Show

I realise that we’re about ten years too late, but my bloke and I have been really getting into Stargate recently!

We’re on season 9 of SG1, lol.

So it was pretty easy to pick a series for this theme. And I thought that PMT by piCture pOlish fit the bill nicely for the dark, stony gate 😀

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 9. Textured

I’m a couple of days behind, haha, oops !

So keeping it simple to catch up – the prompts towards the end of the month are so much complicated anyway, I know I’ll get to stretch my creative muscles a bit…

When it comes to textured polish, I love mine black and leathery best – so here I have used Nails Inc Leather effect and Barry M Croc effects – with a little stud, since the only thing cooler than (fake) leather is studs 😀

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 8. Matte

I know, I know, I’m a day behind. I’ve been battling with Clingy Kitty (formerly Naughty Kitty) to get things done…. Anyways, I’ve gone purple again today !


Since I got the new brushes from piCture pOlish, I’ve been re-trying them all, and I’m so much happier – the brush is a real deal-breaker for me, that’s why I’m so fussy about the ones I use for my polishes 🙂
