OCC Automaton Nail Lacquer

OCC Automaton Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “24K gold with red/green duochrome [with a Metallic finish].” It’s a brightened, sunshine yellow with warm, yellow-red undertones and very fine micro-shimmer that shifts from a coppery-red to a murky green. I tried so hard to capture the duochrome, but it’s really subtle, and despite dozens of photos, no luck. After two coats, there was still visible nail line, and I’d describe the coverage as semi-opaque. It applied evenly, and there weren’t any brush strokes even though it is a more metallic finish. NARS Kismet (LE, $19.00) is darker, more coppery. See comparison swatches.

OCC Deven Green Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “nearly-neon green [with a Creme finish].” It’s a brightened, light-medium green with subtle warm undertones. “Nearly-neon” is exactly right; it’s vibrant, bright, but it’s not quite neon. It was opaque in two coats, and the first coat was a little streaky going on, but the second coat smoothed and evened everything out. The consistency was slightly thick. The only neon green I could think of was China Glaze I’m With the Lifeguard, which is a true neon green, and it has shimmer, so it’s really not similar at all.

OCC Pool Boy Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “aquatic blue [with a Creme finish].” It’s a light-medium blue with a cream finish. It dries down to a satiny finish–there’s some shine, but it’s not glossy. The consistency is slightly thin, but it is opaque after two coats. It was a somewhat streaky going on the first coat, and the second coat covered most of it, but it wasn’t a flawless finish. Zoya Rocky (P, $9.00) is darker, more muted. Essie In the Cab-ana (P, $8.00) is warmer, greener. Cult Nails Nakizzle’s Shizzle (P, $12.00) is darker, more muted. SpaRitual Ebb & Flow (LE, $10.00) is much darker. See comparison swatches.

I typically get a week of wear with OCC’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.
