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.

“We had in our minds this idea of moving objects coming to life,” said designers Shane Gabier and Chris Peters. “It’s quite psychedelic, a little triply with the acid greens and purples.”

“We didn’t want to see the makeup before seeing the clothes but still wanted a strong look,” said James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry. “It’s very chalky and very 90’s. To balance the chalkiness in the eyes, we gave a luminosity to the cheekbones.”
