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 *picture heavy*

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.

MeMeMe – Cashmere Collection Swatches & Review

Did everyone have a nice weekend? Mine was unexpectedly busy!

Today though, I have some swatches to show you. MeMeMe is a new brand to me. It’s made in the UK and has recently been made available at a French manicure supplier called ADNails. The prices are very reasonable, and I decided to try out a multipack first. Since I don’t have many work-appropriate polishes, I got the Cashmere Collection (currently on promotion at 13€). I’ve also started using their hand cream, which smells very nice and is light yet hydrating.

MeMeMe - Cashmere Collection


The brushes are pretty nice, a little wide and flat, very smooth, yet not too big either. I can do my little fingernail in one single swipe with these, and they are very smooth 🙂

Polish Alcoholic - Furcifer Bottle Shots

Sabrina of Polish Alcoholic sent me a lovely present back in November, and with the Christmas break and the scarring on my hand, I haven’t even shown you the second of her multichromes yet! You probably already know how I love photograph multichrome polish, so don’t be surprised that this is a very picture-heavy post! Polish Alcoholic - Furcifer Bottle Shots -001 Continue reading

Models Own Velvet Goth Box Set *picture heavy* – Valerian, Obsidian, Sardonyx, Amethyst, Absinthe

I’m in Switzerland today on a work trip, so please do excuse the pre-prepared post 😉

Of course, for the trip I needed Grown-Up, Sensible Nails. So I spent some time this weekend swatching the Velvet Goth Box Set by Models Own to get the fun out of my system 😉

I’ll mostly let the pictures do the talking! This is all 2 coats, no top-coat. They aren’t ‘velvet’-effect in the same way as Zoya, for example, they are rather gelly polishes with a heavy dose of glitter and a semi-matte finish.
