OCC Cruising Nail Lacquer

OCC Cruising Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “brassy gold shimmer.” It is supposed to coordinate with Cruising Loose Colour Concentrate. It’s a warmed-up yellow-tinted gold glitter mixed with brassier gold glitter particles. In lower light conditions, it looks warmer, more gold against my skin tone (which has yellow undertones), but under brighter light, it has a brassier look (more like the loose eyeshadow). The color reminded me most of China Glaze Midnight Kiss, except Cruising is the glitter version of it.

OCC’s formula is four-free (it does not include DBP, formaldehyde, toulene, or formaldehyde resin), and it wears a full week on me with minor tip wear (but no chipping). Cruising has a glitter finish, so it will dry down really quickly–which is lovely–but you’ll pay for it later with removal (just as you would with any glittery polish). I find that pressing a soaked piece of felt or cotton against the nail for 15-20 seconds and then repeating on the other shades works well. I press and hold for each finger, and when I’ve done that for all ten, I go back to the first and actually go to pull and remove the polish off the nail. The coverage is noteworthy for two coats of polish, too–nearly opaque.  The consistency of this polish stood out to me; it was a great balance in thickness that allowed for opaque color and even glitter distribution.
