OCC Pansy Nail Lacquer

OCC Pansy Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described simply as “purple,” and it has a cream finish. It’s a pinked purple with subtle red undertones. At first, I thought it was comparable to Urban Decay Miss T, but Miss T is so much brighter and deeper. Pansy is closer to Essie’s Grenadine, though Grenadine comes out pinker.

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). Pansy was just right in consistency; not too thick or too thin. On top of that, it was nearly opaque in one coat, though I swatched with two for good measure.

It's firmly between pink and purple; a lot of potentially similar shades lean too far in one directly. This is an easy purple for warmer skin tones to wear, too, because of the pink/red undertone.

    I’ve been dying to try out some OCC nail polishes; the colors are so basic, yet so gorgeous. They remind me of crayons sort of. Just the perfect creams.
