Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Unknown Pleasure Nail Lacquers

Covet, Dangerous, Poison, Technopagan, Distortion, Pagan ($10)

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Covet Nail Lacquer


Covet is a buff/camel creme. This had a really good, if a little thick, formula. I love this shade because it’s unusual and kind of ugly/pretty. This was two coats.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Dangerous Nail Lacquer


Dangerous is a medium/deep grey creme. This is the perfect grey creme. You can see a little bit of blue in it, which I love. The formula was excellent it was nearly one coat but I used two.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pagan Nail Lacquer


Pagan is a blackened purple creme. This baby is super dark, nearly black looking, but not quite. I did use three thin coats because it wasn’t completely even with just two. Very glossy!

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Poison Nail Lacquer


Poison is a shimmery ivy green metallic. Loving this dark green color, though it is a little bit brush-stroke-y if you aren’t careful. It covered really nicely with two thin coats.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Technopagan Nail Lacquer


Technopagan is a blackened purple with blue pearl metallic. This is nearly as amazing as the Lip Tar with the same name, but not quite – but only because that Lip Tar is freaking INCREDIBLE! This color is gorgeous, rich and the formula was excellent. This was two coats and it’s less brush-stroke-y than Poison was.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Distortion Nail Lacquer


Distortion is a dark shimmery navy blue metallic. I like that it’s not so dark that it looks black, you can definitely tell it’s blue. This was a wee bit brush-stroke-y, but again not as much as Poison. Two coats covered really nicely.

I like all of these shades but am especially in love with Covet, Technopagan and Poison.

Which of these shades are you coveting?
