OCC Isherwood Nail LacquerOCC 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 LacquerMan 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 LacquerSebastian 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.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!
