Ozotic 505 Swatch

Whoops no Shitty Nail Art Monday today! When I was sick, I didn't get to paint my nails so I actually have only painted my nails once in three weeks! Yikes! So I'll keep burning off the back log here and I'll do this bonus Leibsters Award thing but I'll put that stuff at the bottom of the post.

Today I've got Ozotic 505, which is a layering multichrome effect polish. Spoiler alert: It's fecking GORGEOUS. Unfortunately it's not a standalone polish, but layered over black, it's a whole lot of magic power. I used Cult Nails Nevermore for a one coat black so the polish isn't layered on thick. It was perfect. Ozotic 505 shifts from a navy shimmer to teal to violet to magenta and in the right light (which I couldn't get with my artificial light box light), a flash of lime and gold. It almost reminds me of an oil slick! (Yeah yeah, I'm guilty - as a kid, I was always fascinated with the colours of oil slicks!)

You can see a glimpse of the colour changing that occurs in the bottle as well.

Anyway, since I don't have Shitty Nail Art Monday for you, I'm going to participate in this "Leibsters Award" thing. The kind and cool Tami from Polished Dreams and Life Things gave me a shout out and before I didn't really participate in these things but now that I am following more than two blogs (haha), I can finally list off some folks. Also be sure to check out Tami's blog, her photos are getting better and better with every post! Here's the lowdown copypasta:

This award was designed to be a blog award in the "pay it forward" fashion. Once you've been nominated, you award it to five blogs that you like that have fewer than 200 followers, to encourage new visitors to visit these blogs.

The rules for accepting this award are:

You need to thank the person who gave you the award and link back to their blog. Post the award onto your blog. Give the award to five bloggers who you appreciate that have fewer than 200 followers. Leave a comment on their blog letting them know that you have given them this awesome award!

So here we go:

1 - My homegirl Caitlin over at Addicted to Lacquer (She has a stash not to be messed with and all around awesome taste. Also check out her Hoof Polish!)

2 - Another Canuck gal of mine, Chantal of Chantal's Corner (Top notch photos, helpful beauty reviews and really clean and great nail art)

3 - Fellow Redditor June of The Polish Fox (Awesome indie polish girl! Helpful swatches and all around good taste.)

4 - Fellow Rainbow Honey fangirl Kylie of Chicbananas (Again, awesome taste in indie polishes and all around kick-ass mom!)

5 - Aaaaand one of my newest followers Ellie at Moustache Manis (Her nail art completely slays me. I am totally in love!)

Anyway I guess you're supposed to tag people but I really just wanted to give some shout outs in lieu of crappy nail art! Hopefully next week, Shitty Nail Art Monday will be back!
