Ozotic #507 Nail Lacquer ($17.50 oz. for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “multi-chrome nail polish that shifts from golden yellow to khaki green to blue flash with a metallic shimmer.” It’s predominantly a murky olive green-gold that brightens and darkens depending on the angle/lighting. The blue comes out, for me, around the edges of the nail when held at a certain angle. It’s a very cool effect and definitely something that’s hard to capture in a single photo! It’s definitely very similar to Chanel Peridot. They both look like oil spills in the bottle! #507 has more blue pulled out than Chanel, which tends to be more gold-green and green; perhaps less multi-chrome.
Wet ‘n’ Wild Sagreena the Teenage Witch Nail Lacquer ($1.99 for 0.46 fl. oz.) is a vibrant emerald green with lighter green shimmer. It’s nearly opaque after two coats (which is what I have swatched)–there’s the barest hint of visible nail line at certain angles. This is a much better affordable version of emerald green! I tried Sinful Colors HD, which just didn’t have the payoff. Zoya Holly is a deeper emerald green. This shade is perfect for the holiday season, and it won’t break the bank 🙂 The consistency on Sagreena the Teenage Witch wasn’t too thick or thin, so it flowed across the nail evenly and didn’t feel too thick when dry. I didn’t experience any bubbling or streaking during application.
It’s opaque in two coats, and like many Illamasqua shades, the formula is excellent; the polish flows across the nail easily, doesn’t streak or bubble, and never feels too thick. Illamasqua is one of the longest wearing polishes on me; I can wear their formula for ten days or longer and only have minimal tip wear, which is just barely on the edges. When I travel, I often reach for an Illamasqua shade, because I know it will hold up to the vigors of traveling.
The flow of Girls Just Want to Have Fun is excellent; it spreads evenly across the nail without streaking or bubbling. It has a good consistency–not too thick or thin. Deborah Lippmann’s polishes tend to wear well on me; I typically get a week of wear with minor to minimal tip wear. This was originally launched during the summer (I have a major backlog!), but it’s still available and for those who are 1) having summery weather now or 2) wear seasonally inappropriate shades, enjoy! 🙂
Glitter Gal Light as a Feather Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is a pale, cloudy gray with linear holographic shimmer. The shimmer looks mostly like white micro-shimmer more often than not, but you can definitely catch the holographic flash. If you’re unfamiliar with holographic polishes, the shimmer gives it a rainbow effect–you’ll see red, orange, gold, green, and blue/blue-violet. It’s not just one or two colors, it’s a slew of them. Nubar Earthen is the closest dupe I had to the base color, but it’s a much more of putty gray, less blue-based, and of course, it is not holographic.
