I’m back today with one of the new Ozotic polishes that I received from Picture Polish a while back. This one is Ozotic Sugar 904, a yellow glass fleck shimmer. This is a sheer polish on its own so I wanted to play around with it a bit and show you a few different ways that it can be worn!
Ozotic Sugar 904
Ozotic Sugar 904 is a shimmery iridescent sheer yellow glass fleck polish. It can be built up to opacity though, shown above is 4 coats on its own. I quite like it this way for a more delicate look.
Here I layered Ozotic Sugar 904 over several colors. On my pointer finger you have 904 on its own. My middle finger is 1 coat of 904 layered over black (A England Camelot). My ring finger is 1 coat of 904 layered over a green (OPI Jade Is The New Black), and finally on my pinky I have 1 coat of Ozotic Sugar 904 layered over white (OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls).

904 layered over green. The yellow flecks are in full effect here.
And finally 904 over white. This time the glass flecks take on an opalescent tone. I love it!
I will admit that I was a little hesitant when I first looked at this polish. It looked like it would be too sheer, and a sheer yellow on nails didn’t sound like a good life plan. But once I actually tried it I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Ozotic 904! The application was effortless and it has a good formula. Dry time on its own is a bit extended but at that point you’re dealing with 4 coats of polish. Dry time layered over other colors seems typical. The layering possibilities are virtually endless!
I have a few more polishes from Picture Polish that I’ll be playing with over the next few weeks so stay tuned! ^_^
Ozotic Sugar 904 and other Ozotic polishes can be purchased from the following E-Tailers: Picture Polish, you can also check out the Picture Polish Network Page for other worldwide E-Tailers.

I did a guest post for Kelly from Posh for Polish the other day, why don’t you mosey on over to her blog and check it out! I used multi-chrome polishes with my Red Angel stamp this time. Click [HERE] to see it!
I’ve received a LOT of nail polish in the past few weeks so I wanted to share some of my recent polish hauls with you all! Some of the polishes I purchased from various places: blog sales, evilbay, Walgreens. One I won from a twitter contest! And another was donated to me by a friend (Thanks Amanda!!). The others were provided for review consideration, and others still are from the swatching contest that Llarowe held on her facebook a few weeks back. She ended up picking 11 winners, including myself, to be personal swatchers for her shop and facebook fanpage! I received my first package from her, and HOLY POLISH OVERLOAD do I have a lot of great things to share with you over the next month! I’ll just let the pictures speak for me.

I actually received even MOAR polish after I took these photos. My good friend Dana sent me a HUGE package of polish, so I’ll have to do another polish haul post to show you those. Annnnnnnd I received the Models Own Beetlejuice Collection that I need to swatch for you all ASAP! ^_^

I’ve got another beautiful multi-chrome provided by Katie of Harlow & Co. to share with you today. This time we’re taking a closer look at Ozotic 507. For more info on the Canadian e-tailer you can check out my more detailed review on them (and Ozotic 520) right [HERE].
I used SH Nail Quencher Base Coat/Seche Vite Top Coat for all swatches shown today. Clicking on any of the images will enlarge them to the original size for you.
Ozotic 507 is a splendiferous (I love that word…) multi-chrome. It runs the gambit from a bright, almost metallic, olive green to a bronze/golden green with yellow overtones. Then it completely flips the switch in lower lighting and hits this gorgeous dark forest green, simply beautiful. The first two photos in this set are in direct sunlight, the last photo is from indirect sunlight. Paging Nicole, my multi-chrome and olive green polish lovin’ sister from another life… You need this polish!
Here’s a macro shot from indirect sunlight of the gorgeous deep green. Even in the low lighting you can see the subtle shimmer, I can’t get over how much I love this color. This is 2 coats of Ozotic 507 over black.
Here’s some photos taken in my lightbox of Ozotic 507. This polish reminds me of Chanel Peridot quite a bit, but they are NOT dupes. The bronze color shift in Peridot is a lot more strong that the one in Ozotic 507.
Here’s a great shot of the subtle bronze/golden color shift in Ozotic 507. It’s very slight but I think it’s gorgeous.
And finally another close-up shot. I really have a problem with over-photographing my multi-chromes. Oh darn.
If I had a soul mate nail polish I think it would be Ozotic 507. Application is great as well as dry time. Since it’s a multi-chrome you do get better results with layering it over a darker color. I’ve yet to be disappointed by an Ozotic polish. It’s a great 3-Free company and their products are well worth the price tag! ^_^
Ozotic 507 can be purchased through Harlow & Co. for $17.00 per .5 fl oz bottle of polish. You can also purchase Ozotics from Llarowe, piCture pOlish (Australia based), and OverallBeauty.com. Prices vary ($14AUD to $18USD) and each site has their own shipping & handling charges so please check out their individual policies.

Happy Saturday Everyone!!
I hope you all are having a great weekend so far! I’m going to see Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 with a few of my girlfriends today and I’m super pumped! I know, they’re not the greatest books and movies but they’re my guilty pleasure and I just can’t help myself (though I think Edward, Jacob, and Bella are all equally stupid at times… Team Jasper!! ). Plus I’ve heard that this one was the best of the series so far when it comes to the movies, I know that Breaking Dawn was my favorite of the four books. Anyone else checking out the movie this weekend? ^_^
I’m super excited to be showing you this polish today! I was approached by Katie from Harlow & Co. (She’s a Canadian e-tailer for all my girls over the northern border, check out their About page for more info! ) a week or so ago and she asked if I’d be interested in reviewing a few of her Ozotic polishes. She sent two of them to me and today we’re going to check out Ozotic 520 first. And boy is she a beauty! ♥
I used SH Nail Quencher Base Coat/Seche Vite Top Coat for all swatches shown today. Clicking on any of the images will enlarge them to the original size for you. Trust me, you’ll want to enlarge these photos.
Ozotic 520 is absolutely GORGEOUS. It’s goes from a glowing burgundy to a maroon, then to rust red with hints of bronze. And THEN it glides effortlessly into a orange-red-coppery-gold mix that is quintessentially autumn splashed across my nails. So basically I’m in love. ♥♥
These first three photos show Ozotic 520 in artificial lighting. I apologize for some of the goofy angles here, but sometimes it’s needed to show you all the different color variations to be discovered in multi-chromatic polishes! ^_^
Application was effortless. As with most duo/multi-chromatic polishes, this is a sheer polish that is best layered over another color. This is two coats layered over black.
Here are some shots with in-direct sunlight. The sun was disappearing behind the clouds by this time in my swatching session. I’m glad it did though because I got these gorgeous shots of the color shifting from warm red to a golden orange. This is my favorite color shift, it’s just beautiful.
Last, but certainly not least, here are some macro/close-up shots for you. I love the subtle shimmer in Ozotic 520. It’s like little specks of gold peeking through fallen leaves! ^_^
If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m madly in love with Ozotic 520! With winter right around the corner it’s nice to hold on to every little piece of fall that I can, and looking at my nails when I have this polish on reminds me of my favorite season all over again. I also LOVE the new bottle shape for Ozotic. They used to be big, round, and slightly cumbersome. Plus with the new square shape I can fit more of them in my new Helmer!
Ozotics are a 3-Free and cruelty free brand from Australia. They can be a little pricey, even after becoming easier to procure through great e-tailers. But I certainly would not let that deter you from getting your hands on this beauty. Think of it as a special treasure in your polish collection. Plus the holiday season is just around the corner, perhaps it’s time to put some extra padding on your wishlists…
Ozotic 520 can be purchased through Harlow & Co. for $17.00 per .5 fl oz bottle of polish. They ship worldwide and offer free shipping on orders over $50. Harlow & Co. also offers other hard-to-find and/or international brands: Glitter Gal, Models Own, Nubar, piCture pOlish, POP beauty, Scotch Naturals (vegan & water based!), and Spa Therapy skin products. This was my first time interacting with the company. Katie was a peach to work with and my items shipped lightning fast from Canada to the US!
You can also purchase Ozotics from Llarowe, piCture pOlish (Australia based), and OverallBeauty.com. Prices vary and each site has their own shipping & handling charges so please check out their individual policies.
