OCC Covet Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “golden buff neutral.” It’s a medium-dark, muted peachy-beige with a cream finish. It was opaque after two coats and applied well without streaking or bubbling. It dried down to a high gloss finish. The consistency was slightly thick but not difficult to use. I typically get a week of wear with minor tip wear but no chipping with the brand’s formula. I don’t have anything that has as much brown in it that’s not actually brown, but these were the closest I could think of: NARS Wind Dancer (LE, $20.00) is brighter, more orange. Chanel June (LE, $27.00) is lighter, more orange. China Glaze Desert Sun (LE, $7.50) is more orange, brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

OCC Dangerous Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “opaque, true grey.” It’s a medium, neutral-to-cool-toned gray with a cream finish. This shade was very pigmented and was almost opaque in one coat, though I used two coats just to be sure. It had a slightly thick consistency, but it was easy to work with and didn’t streak or pool along the edges. Illamasqua DWS (P, $17.00) is cooler-toned. Rescue Beauty Lounge Stormy (LE, $20.00) is very similar. Zoya Dove (P, $9.00) is lighter, warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

OCC Pagan Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “blackened purple.” It’s a deep, dark–but still rich, slightly brightened–purple with cool undertones and a jelly-cream finish. It was mostly opaque after two coats, but there was a very slight translucency to it (which is what made it look like a jelly-cream hybrid). NARS Fury (LE, $20.00) is warmer. NARS New York Dolls (LE, $20.00) is lighter. MAC Rain of Flowers (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery. L’Oreal The Mystic’s Fortune (LE) is more shimmery. Essie Bobbing for Baubles (LE, $8.00) is more muted, bluer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

These launch online August 5th and will be in select stores on September 19th.

I like Dangerous the best of the three, but no surprise, as I have Illamasqua DWS. But what struck me most is the photo of the three bottles together. I think these colours look really interesting and amazing sitting together.

I know a lot of people would consider it an “ugly” colour, but I love the look of Covet and it’s a shade that’s pretty hard to dupe.

Pagan is such a rare color! I have seen purples before but they are usually with shimmer and dual tone.. this one’s so pretty and different

Yeah….not feelin any of these colours:s especcciiiiallly that yellow lol. I can’t imagine that shade being flattering on anyone :s or maybe it’s just me πŸ™‚

Even though it looks terrible on me, I kind of have this *thing* for elephant grey nail polish πŸ˜‰ Pagan is awesome in colour, but I wish it were opaque! I love jellies, but I can somehow see this one being really hard to get perfectly even in terms of colour depth over multiple coats…

I love covet! It reminds me of a lighter version of the camel color from the NARS Easy Walking duo, which is a color I’ve been trying to find a dupe for. Covet seems like a good option!

All 3 of these colours seem pretty unique. I love the look of Pagan! It does seem quite similar to OPI’s Russian Navy, which I own, but Pagan is probably a bit more blue/purple though.

At first glance i did not like these colours at all but once they were applied on the nails they looked great. Quite different to the typical nail polish shades. Covet it my favourite.

It’s interesting how I think I’ll not like a colour and then completely change my mind when I see it used. I thought I’d dislike Covet, but no, I like it. It wouldn’t suit me, unfortunately.
I knew I’d like Pagan, and I do. I don’t have any grey nailpolish and as I don’t think I can get these I may have to go search for “the right” grey.
