Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics

Ahhh I totally forgot to do Inspire Me Monday! Next week, I promise, I already know what I am doing for it, it is pretty awesome. I most likely won't do Watermarble Wednesday tomorrow either :(. Well some good news, I have another one of my new polishes from IMATS. I have one more after this, then I will get onto swatching all my polishes I hauled at the super nail supply store I went to down in the LA area. This manicure also features one of those polishes:



Sorry for the cut on my index finger. I don't have fancy photo shop to edit that out.

Well as you can see from the bottle, the base color I used is Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC)- Something. I planned on getting more from this brand too, but their polish selection wasn't very impressive. I know they have a lot too! I was really looking forward to getting Chlorophyll, but of course they didn't have it. So, I decided to get Something. I didn't go all the way down to LA to not purchase something from OCC! I decided on Something because it was the most unique shade, aside from the doo doo brown they had. I have nothing like it. I did compare it to China Glaze- Sea Spray, which is pretty much the same color, but it has shimmer.

Then I added China Glaze- Bling it On, which is from their new Glitz Bitz 'n Pieces collection for 2013.This is one of the three I purchased from this collection. I applaud China Glaze for this collection because they are going towards the indie trend, and were extremely successful! Unlike Whirled Away from their Cirque Du Soleil collection. I didn't even bother with that polish since there were pretty much only bad reviews on it. Although It's A Trap-eze was freakin awesome!

Anyway, onto the formulas and application. Something was flawless! A perfect creme, almost a one coater. You could probably get away with one thick coat if you are really good at applying polish. The brush is really nice, too. I might also add the bottle shape is pretty cool. I have nothing like it, but i do wish I had one of their older bottle shapes. Bling It On was of course typical China Glaze glitter application, amazing. I applied it pretty thick though. I will try to apply the other two I got a little thinner.

What do you think? Have you tried either of these polishes, or anything from OCC?
