China Glaze Bohemian Collection

Friday, July 27, 2012

I have been waiting for this collection for months. It was worth the wait. Six wonderfully metallic finish polishes with shimmery shine and a slight duochrome effect. 

"These polishes will leave you mesmerized as the color shifts and moves across the nail, traveling with the light. The chrome-like finish radiates with high shine and intense color, captivating your senses with every twist and turn." - China Glaze press release.

The swatches are two coats with no top coat. I captured a couple of them in the sunlight. Unfortunately the sun decided to hide behind the clouds for the rest of them.

The formula was great. They applied like a dream and two coats provided perfect coverage. The only negative for me is the noticeable brush marks. However that doesn't bother everyone. And the colors were so fantastic I think I can overlook that minor flaw.

Deviantly Daring – Adventurously bold peacock teal. I think this is my favorite of the bunch. Look at that bright bold color.

Want My Bawdy – Sexy sapphire blue. Okay, maybe this is my favorite. I love the rich tones in this one.

Ozotic 743 and 744 swatches

Sunday, July 8, 2012

Ozotic - it has a wonderful ring to it. I have for you today two wonderful polishes from the Ozotics 700 collection - 743 and 744. These are chrome polishes that catch and reflect the light. 
Ozotic polishes are available at Llarowe. Llarowe is a one-stop shop for specialty nail polishes that aren't readily available in stores.
 
As I was swatching these I couldn't help but wonder "What happens if I dot with multi-chromes?" You will find the answer to that and the photo at the end of this post.
 
Let's move on to the swatches.
 
Ozotic 744 is a wonderful, rich shade of light purple chrome. This is a gorgeous color and has a subtle hint of pink.

Now, for my dotting experiment. I used Hits Cutie Pie for the flowers and Hits Trendy for the center of the flower. The dots appear as almost a three-dimensional addition to the overall look. I am definitely going experiment more with this.

Bottom line: This was my first experience with Ozotics and I can guarantee you it isn't my last. I now have some from the discontinued 500 series that I have added to my collection and aare calling my name. is available at shop.llarowe,com for $14.50.
