Happy Monday!

It is getting impossible to ignore the chill of the approaching winter (at least for us in the Northern Hemisphere) and what better way to warm up than “Hot Chili!” Today I have for you two beauties from Glitter Gal that are in limited availability – Hot Chili and Transfusion, perfect shades for the season.

Hot Chili is an appropriately named chili-pepper red linear holographic. A warm and flattering, easy-to-wear red. Application was easy, however it was very sheer on the first coat. I would recommend a generous second coat, which gave me perfect opacity. I noticed that both Transfusion and Hot Chili dried to a slightly satin finish, so top coat was a must for me. I used China Glaze’s Fast Forward and it did not diminish any of the holo effect.

Transfusion is deep blue-based berry shade with vampy qualities – definitely my favourite of the two! The holo provides it with a deep red/purple effect that I just loved. The formula on Transfusion was slightly crelly (cream-jelly), and it reached full opacity at two generous coats. Again, Transfusion dried to a somewhat satin finish and I added top coat which brought out a very high shine.

Happy piCture pOlish Thursday! It’s time for another Ozotic, an Aussie brand that piCture pOlish added to their portfolio (lucky for us!)! Today I have for you a brand-new polish for me: Ozotic 621, part of their 600 series which are all scattered holos.

Ozotic 621 is described as “a deep red holo that has no glitter! 621 contains a scattered holo element that will bring rainbows to your fingertips! Your nails will take on a whole new dimension when in bright light or sunlight.” 621 is FILLED with a rainbow-hued holo, creating a three-dimensional, gorgeous effect on your nails, even outside of direct light… Though it’s described as a deep red, I saw a lot of orange in the base which makes it quite a warm red. When the light hits 621, it sparkles with a lot of gold reflection. Gorgeous!

I applied two beautiful, easy coats of 621 over basecoat, with a coat of China Glaze’s Fast Forward Top Coat. Ozotic 621 applied easily, self-levelling, and could even be a one-coater if you’re in a hurry. It’s the fluid, heavily pigmented consistency that made me fall in love with the entire piCture pOlish line – and the best part? It dries super-fast!

Look at that shine!!!! Don’t you love the depth that the holo creates?

Now look at it come alive in sunlight:

Earlier I fell in love with the Ozotic Sugars and Beam lines, and today, I am in love with Ozotic’s amazing scattered holo. If you have never tried the 600 series, you must.
