Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics The Garden Collection for Spring/Summer 2012 Swatches & Review

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics has a new collection out called The Garden Collection this spring/summer.

This collection features five new Nail Lacquers (and a re-promote), five Loose Colour Concentrates, and six new Lip Tars. It was inspired by poisonous and psychotropic plants (oooh groovy!) as well as more earthy tones found in nature.

Recently OCC changed their bottle shape from a soft square to this harder rectangle shape. I like the way they look and line up. However, and this only really applies to those blogging about nail polish, the shape makes it really hard to hold and get an attractive photo of your hands!

OPI New York City Ballet Collection Swatches & Review

New York City Ballet by OPI is a new spring collection featuring five new SoftShades and a sparkly glitter.

What goes better than ballet and these sheer soft colors? Pretty much nothing. When I think of the ballet these are the exact colors I think of. Tutus, ballet slippers, lace, satiny costumes…

They are soft and sheer, and I know a lot of people, usually including myself, don’t love sheers. But these really appealed to me when I saw promo pics for whatever reason.

Because these are all sheers they were prone to some unevenness, which I didn’t love. But they were super shiny and flattering nonetheless. Perfect for days when you need a clean nice look without loads of obviousness.

I used three thin coats for all the colors, and for Pirouette My Whistle (the silver glitter) I used just one coat.

Don’t Touch My Tutu

Don’t Touch My Tutu is a sheer white.
