OCC Covet, Dangerous, Pagan Nail Lacquers
OCC Covet Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “golden buff neutral.” It’s a medium-dark, muted peachy-beige with a cream finish. It was opaque after two coats and applied well without streaking or bubbling. It dried down to a high gloss finish. The consistency was slightly thick but not difficult to use. I typically get a week of wear with minor tip wear but no chipping with the brand’s formula. I don’t have anything that has as much brown in it that’s not actually brown, but these were the closest I could think of: NARS Wind Dancer (LE, $20.00) is brighter, more orange. Chanel June (LE, $27.00) is lighter, more orange. China Glaze Desert Sun (LE, $7.50) is more orange, brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
OCC Dangerous Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “opaque, true grey.” It’s a medium, neutral-to-cool-toned gray with a cream finish. This shade was very pigmented and was almost opaque in one coat, though I used two coats just to be sure. It had a slightly thick consistency, but it was easy to work with and didn’t streak or pool along the edges. Illamasqua DWS (P, $17.00) is cooler-toned. Rescue Beauty Lounge Stormy (LE, $20.00) is very similar. Zoya Dove (P, $9.00) is lighter, warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
OCC Pagan Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “blackened purple.” It’s a deep, dark–but still rich, slightly brightened–purple with cool undertones and a jelly-cream finish. It was mostly opaque after two coats, but there was a very slight translucency to it (which is what made it look like a jelly-cream hybrid). NARS Fury (LE, $20.00) is warmer. NARS New York Dolls (LE, $20.00) is lighter. MAC Rain of Flowers (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery. L’Oreal The Mystic’s Fortune (LE) is more shimmery. Essie Bobbing for Baubles (LE, $8.00) is more muted, bluer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
