This is seriously seriously waaay overdue! Gosh. Bad blogger, bad, bad blogger. Well, this started when the lovely Jules emailed to ask if I would like to review some new Ozotics and a new Picture Polish glitter. I was so sad when I received the email because I was headed back to Singapore over the next few days. I voiced my concerns to Jules and told her that if she wanted to pick someone else who was actually gonna be in Aussie, I'd totally understand. She was so lovely though, she immediately said that they'd send my polishes to Singapore for me! And they did! When I received them, I was floored, they're gorgeous.
The ever lovely Elissa from the Aussie Nails FB group also came up with Aussie Nails Monday! EVery Monday (or so), a bunch of us post up manis according to the theme for the week. The theme for the first week was birthday, so here are my belated Superman's birthday nails! According to some Superman comics, his birthday during the Golden Age was in October, so I'm not entirely off there!
I've seen so many photos of Ozotic 905 layered over black or white or some other colour but when I looked at it, I realised that it was so much more versatile than that. It didn't have to be just a layering polish. I decided to use it as part of my nail art attempt instead.
This is Ozotic Beam 905 as chevron french tips over Picture Polish Kryptonite. I had previously received Kryptonite as part of my Blogfest package.
Ozotic 905 took three coats to build up to opacity which is really great for a layering polish! I freehanded the french tips and they turned out amazingly straight. I've never been one for nail art but I do love my french tips.
Ozotic Beam 905 is an amazing shimmery polish with multi-coloured flecks. It's got a glass fleck finish and it's an amazing enigma that you can stare at forever, even if it's just in its bottle. I just can't figure it out!
The formula gets a tad thick after working with it for awhile but it's totally worth trying to make it work. I recommend letting each coat dry before applying the next so as to reduce dragging.
I can't wait to get my grubby little hands on the rest of the collection if every polish promises to be as dropdead gorgeous as this enigmatic beauty here!
Ozotic is available through the Picture Polish website or through their network partners. Check out their Facebook page for heaps of contests and swatches! I really love their amazingly personal customer service too.
PS. All polishes used in this post were sent for review.
