Ozotic #507 Nail Lacquer

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

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.

Illamasqua Force Nail Varnish

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.

Deborah Lippmann Girls Just Want to Have Fun Nail Lacquer

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! :)

Cult Nails My Kind of Cool Aid Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails My Kind of Cool Aid Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “purple/gray” or “gravender” as Cult Nails calls it. It’s a light-medium grayish purple with sparse white shimmer that’s opaque in two coats. I’d say the closest shade I have to it is Rescue Beauty Lounge Insouciant, which is a few shades darker and less gray. Shades like Nubar Purple Aster and Zoya Marley are much lighter.

Glitter Gal Light as a Feather Nail Lacquer

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.
