Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pretty Boy Nail Lacquer Collection for fall actually kind of looks like spring or summer colors in my eyes. But that’s not a bad thing at all!
Looking at them in the bottle I was a little mystified as to why these would be fall collection, but I like that they don’t always go the “normal” route. Keeps things interesting.
In the bottle I was less than excited about most of these, to be honest. They looked a little boring to me. But once I swatched them I really, truly liked almost all of them. 🙂
The formula was really great with every one of these. Perfect, opaque and smooth application. All were just two coats.
Femme is a light pink frosty shimmer. This color and finish scream “1984 Florida” to me. I think it’s because of the pink tone and definitely because of the silver frost finish. Kinda pretty but definitely not “me”. This was the only one I didn’t wind up liking, but it had a great formula.
Pool Boy is a medium sky blue creme. Gorgeous! Utterly gorgeous on my hands, I couldn’t stop staring at them. Super flattering.
Palare is a fuchsia color with heavy purple and blue duochrome shimmer. I’m a SUCKER for this color, but it’s not all that unique. In fact as I type this I am wearing China Glaze Reggae To Riches which is extremely similar. No matter! I love it anyways.
Extravaganza is a gorgeous pinky/coral color with gold and green duochrome shimmer. Insane. Have you ever seen another color like this one? I don’t think I have. The base color itself is really flattering on me, but add the duochrome shimmer (which shows mostly as gold but you can see green in certain flashes) and you have something really special. Love it.
Pansy is a medium lavender/pink creme. This looks kind of boring and blah in the bottle but wow on my hands! Super shiny and just really a pretty color.
Cruising is a pale gold foil. This is the only one that actually interested me in the bottle at first, and I love it on the nails also. Super gold, super shimmery, super foil-esque. The gold is both light and brassy so you get two types of gold coor in this polish. Delish.
Great collection and not at all what I expected! The formula was really nice with all of them and the colors were great on my hands. My favs are Cruising, Extravaganza, Pansy, Pool Boy and Palare. Ok all of them except Femme really. 😉
