Ozotic 513

I know it's been a while since my last post. Sorry. I have been super busy training for my new job as a pharmacy tech. There is SO much to learn! Today however, I managed to find time to post about Ozotic 513 before heading for more training.

Ozotic 513 is part of the Oziotic line being discontinued. From what I heard, I believe there are only 30 bottles left! The only place you can still find it for sale is at Llarowe. I'll wait here while you go grab one of the last bottles. 

Ozotic 513 is a purple linear holographic polish from Australia. Look at all that holographic goodness! These first two pictures were taken indoors in normal light and it's still so sparkly!

If you've tried holographic polish before, then you know that it's an absolute no-no to apply a topcoat. Well, I totally wasn't paying attention and put on a coat of Seche Vite out of habit. To my great surprise, there was no effect on the holographic sparkle! This is the first holographic polish I have ever been able to wear a topcoat with!

Thanks to actually being able to wear a topcoat, this polished stayed on perfectly for 4 days and I was able to photograph is in the sun. Of course Ozotic 513 is just as stunning in the sun as it is in shade or artificial light. 

I have never tried such a stunning holographic polish! Not to mention, I've never had one that stayed perfect for 4 days and allowed the use of a topcoat! Now, aren't you glad I told you to grab one of the last bottles first?

Tequila Sunrise Mani!

It's been raining pretty much non stop here in Boston since Sunday, so I decided I needed to perk up my nails a bit. Since we are nearing summer and I have tropical things in mind (even if I'm not going anywhere tropical this summer), I wanted to do a tropical drink mani. I then realized this could be a good series for me! So here's the first in my series of tropical drink: Tequila Sunrise!

I used Sinful Colors Unicorn, Island Coral, and Hazard to create the gradient (using the make-up sponge method). I sponged the colors over a white base to really help the colors pop and added my favorite topcoat Nfu Oh #61 to make the nails sparkle. I then topped off my accent nail with a (fimo) lime slice just like the drink! Unfortunately, I didn't have any orange juice to make a tequila sunrise while doing my mani, so I enjoyed a Blue Point Toasted Lager instead. Close enough!
