How great is a company that calls itself Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics? Because let's face it, collecting makeup is an obsession for quite a few of us out there. I like a brand with a sense of humor. Besides that, they have some fresh and interesting colors. While I have been branching out into the world of strange nail polish colors and finishes, I had a strong desire for a grey nail polish. No sparkle. Just a nice darkish creamy grey color. Maybe because one of my favorite suits is a grey pinstripe suit and I thought grey would be a funky polish but still wearable for court days. Then I saw Scrangie's blog and OCC's Blackboard, and I thought, what the hell, I gave blue polish a try, how about green?

I was oddly on the fence about this. I like the color, but I don't know how I felt about the color on me. Green is one of my favorite colors, but I have never worn green nail polish before. I caved when I saw it on Scrangie. It looked so perfect on her. But now I am not so sure. It’s interesting. It is a pretty green, but maybe too over powering for my skintone? I don’t know. It didn’t seem to wear well. I woke up with sheetmarks on my middle finger. I hate that. It’s one of the reasons I stopped wearing nailpolish. I had let the stuff dry for like 5 hours and a coat of Seche Vite before bed, so that was weird. Also seemed to show a lot of wear, scratches, “scuff” marks in the polish within just one day of wearing it. Defintely don’t like that. Hope Dangerous isn’t the same way, because I think I am going to love that color. Strangely, I didn't try Dangerous yet which was the grey polish I wanted so badly. Go figure.


  1. Hot damn! That is awesome. I love both colors and can't wait to see you try Dangerous. I may have to buy these now. Their lip tar or whatever looks pretty awesome too!

  2. Thats the hottest green I've ever seen tho! It looks amazing on you!!
