Sorry for the lack of posts-- this weekend has been really busy! We had a fun date night on Friday and then have spent the rest of the weekend working. We painted what is becoming our guest room (and the old guest room will become our nursery) and then cleaned the carpets. Next we have to move furniture, but that will probably happen this week after work. It's nice to have something accomplished! Still a lot to do, but this is a good step.
Today I have another gorgeous holo for you-- Ozotic 522! This is described as a copper pink linear holographic, though it looks rather red in the bottle and in my pictures. Apparently, though, while reds seem to be some of the easiest polishes to make (and use), making true red holographics is very difficult and they end up leaning pink. I did try layering this over a red polish base, but it definitely fades the base color a bit, rather than enriching the red of 522. This polish is a little on the sheer side, so I needed to use three coats to get good, opaque coverage.

The bad news is that Ozotic 522 is currently discontinued and therefore might be difficult to get a hold if you like it. The good news, as I mentioned in my last post, is that a lot of polish makers out there have jumped in to the fill the void and while you might not be able to find an exact duplicate of this particular polish you can still find some awesome holos out there!
