OCC Isherwood Nail Lacquer
OCC Isherwood Nail Lacquer

OCC Isherwood Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “metallic tobacco ebony.” It’s a deep, dark, rich mahogany brown with copper and bronze micro-shimmer and warm, red undertones. It was fully opaque in two coats and had a natural shine when dry. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin. It had a more metallic finish, so there were some minor, though visible, brush strokes depending on the lighting/angle. I can’t recall reviewing anything quite like this shade. MAC Chestnut (LE, $16.00) has a similar coloring but is a cream, so it’s quite different at the end of the day. See comparison swatches.

Man by Man Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “pearlescent teal green.” It’s a vibrant, sparkling green-ish teal with green-teal sparkle and an almost metallic finish. It was semi-opaque after two coats, so I would recommend three coats for fully opaque color. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it spread well across the nail. It had a naturally shiny finish when it dried down. Zoya Giovanna (P, $8.00) is darker, less sparkly. Dior Samba (794) (LE, $24.00) is similar–finer shimmer. Urban Decay Mars (LE) is darker. Butter London Thames (P, $15.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Sebastian Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “metallic, plum-toned taupe.” It’s a light-medium, cool-toned beige-brown with subtle metallic shimmer. It had slightly visible brush strokes, though from a normal viewing distance, I really couldn’t detect them. The color was very nearly opaque after two coats, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin. Dior Destin (382) (LE, $24.00) is slightly darker and more metallic. Rescue Beauty Lounge Be Humble (LE, $20.00) is purpler. MAC Endless Night (LE, $16.00) has no shimmer. Chanel Frenzy (P, $27.00) is slightly grayer. Cult Nails Let’s Get Dirty (P, $12.00) is a touch less brown, has a rubber finish (with a top coat, they’re more similar). See comparison swatches.  As a note, I had a couple of splayed bristles on the brush of this shade, but I can’t recall that happening on any other of my OCC polishes.

I typically get seven days of wear with no chipping and only minor tip wear with OCC’s formula.
