I’m back! Again! Another post! Seriously if I keep this up I might start to look professional or something. I better cram as many creative swear words that I can think of in this entry and disappear again for a few weeks. I have a rep to protect. I can’t have myself appearing… productive…can I? GROSS! Next thing you know I’ll be wearing glasses on the tip of my nose and telling you not to run in the hallways. I can feel the change taking place – like that scene from an American Werewolf in London… RUN! RUN WHILE YOU STILL CAN!
While I still have a grasp on my sanity, I wanted to tell you all about Ozotics High Impact Holographics. Not that I’m telling you anything new because a stack of other blogs have posted swatches of these and I would put money on the fact that their swatches are a kerbillion times better than mine. On the left we have 617, a wonderful sky blue and on the right is 621 – a deep, luscious ruby red. Despite the fact that my camera didn’t pick up squat on the holo front, I can assure that these are holo. Perhaps not as “high impact” as their 500 series linear holo predecessors, but I still think these are super pretty.
I’m going to put on my captain obvious cape and tell you that 617 is a sky blue particle holo. That much is evident. There’s something delicate about it – it really reminds me of summer. And Smurfs. And for some reason this movie from the 80’s with the mother from Malcolm in the Middle in it. *shrug* The holo is almost visible in my pics, but much better in the sun. It looks chunky as well, but actually applies quite smoothly. This is two coats.
621 is a saucy, saucy minx. I LOVE this. I’m still partaking in a massive red nails love fest and this one just about blew me away. Look how red it is! The jellyish nature of the base buries the glitter throughout and the end result is just amazing. If I wasn’t worried that I would turn to dust if I get out of bed before noon, I would TOTALLY take some picture of this in the sun. You betcha. This is two coats as well and I think I am in deep, dark, nail lust. Meow.
Ozotic High Impact Holographic polishes can be purchased for $14.95 each from piCture pOlish. They are based in Australia, but the good news is that they post worldwide. They’ve got a great range of Ozotics across the board – multichromes and linear holos included. Go on… grab a few. I know you want to!
Okay, so I know I promised you some bad language. Brace yourselves because here it is.

I’m going on a no-buy. (I know, I know… those words are so vile and offensive and I’m so sorry) I’ve just got to do it. For the entire month of August, I am going to do my best to shop my stash and keep the weeping to a minimum. It’s going to be hard. Very very hard. The circles that I travel in are littered with the sweetest, most wonderful bunch of enablers I could ever possibly hope to meet. Resisting your charms will be hard, my friends. But if I pass this trial, I believe it will make me a better
man person. I will be able to conquer anything!
Or, I will just cry a lot and eat cake.
