We interrupt our regularly scheduled China Glaze Let it Snow love fest to bring you a series of posts dedicated to four beautiful polishes that were sent to me for review by Llarowe. They are the U.S. Stockists for popular offshore and domestic brands such as Ozotic, Glitter Gal, A England, Hits, Picture Polish, Lynnderella and more. Shipping is free on orders totaling over $50.00 and shipped within the United States.
Okay, let's get on with the first polish in this four post series, shall we? Please give a warm welcome to Ozotic #507.
This polish is described on the website as a multi chrome polish that shifts from golden yellow to khaki green to blue flash with a metallic shift. This polish is just beautiful. In the shade it is a smooth, almost chrome like metallic that shifts and changes with the amount of light and the angle at which it is viewed.
Ozotic # 507 in shade. Look at how smooth this is and how it shifts green, gold, grey, blue... Yeah.
Get this polish out in the sun and this happens:
Buh-bam! This smooth, metallic shifter transforms to a reflective, sparkling, foil like finish. It still shifts. But does it in hyper drive.
Just look at how this polish reflects off it's self, on the edges of my nails. In person, those areas positively glowed.
This stuff is beautiful. The colour, the way it shifts and moves brings to mind the skin of some exquisite, otherworldly creature. When I see this polish, I am reminded of a Robert Heinlein novel I read when I was a kid. It was about human colonists on Venus and the Venusians lived in the water and popped out and interacted with the humans and always requested "thickrecks". (Cigarettes.) I wish that I could remember the name of the book... But anywhoozle. That is what, for some funny reason this polish brings to mind.
Yeah... I know...
Ozotic # 507 comes in a slender, rounded off rectangular bottle. It is sleek and clean yet soft, smooth and very pleasing to the eye as well as to hold in the hand. When my husband saw the Ozotic polishes he was really impressed with the bottles and he said that they were beautiful. (I almost fell over. He doesn't often comment on such things. lol) The cap is a nice length and is slightly rubberized feeling. It is easy to grip, hang on to and is comfortable to use. The brush is a good length, not too long, not too short. It is a wide and flat brush; the size is slightly smaller than OPI's Pro Wide brush. I liked the brush very much. It applied the polish very nicely, fanning out and depositing the colour smoothly.
The formula of this polish is slightly thin but not runny or watery. It was easy to control and flowed off of the brush and sat right down where I placed it. It didn't run, streak or pool. This polish likes to be applied in fairly thin coats. If you apply it too thick, it wants to bubble and if you apply it too thin, when you try to go back over it, it can catch and drag a bit. I managed to create a few bubbles and a bald spot or two until I got the hang of just how this beauty likes to be handled. It isn't particularly persnickety. It just likes to be applied in thinnish, even coats, worked with smoothly and quickly and not be overworked.
I had to do very, very little cleanup. Dry time for this polish is quick. Not lightening fast, but add a fast dry top coat (I used Seche Vite) and you can get done and get on with your day in pretty short order. You have to love that. :D I applied two coats and it was smooth and opaque with some visible brushstrokes. While I am not a huge fan of brushstroke-y polish, this one isn't obvious or frosty or anything, so it doesn't bother me, in the least.
I don't know what the volume of the polish in this bottle is. I can't find it, either on the bottle or on the website. I think, just from eyeballing it, it is a little bit under a half ounce. But I don't know that for certain. If anyone does know, please to zap me with a clue? The asking price for this polish is $17.50 USD. A little spendy, but in my personal opinion, this pretty and special polish is well worth the asking price.
Overall, I really like Ozotic #507. Pretty bottle, nice brush, lovely formula and it is stunning on the nails.
What do you think of this interesting and beautiful polish? Think that you might need it? Or one of it's sisters or friends? Have you checked out the Llarowe site, yet? I have and I now have a wish list about the length of my arm. *sigh* lol
Thank you so much for popping in and reading this long review post. Have a wonderful day and may your polish never bubble.
