... Happy 3rd Blogversary plus Ozotic 504 ...

"I had a dream last night that I had a pretty blog about nails and polishes. Dreams intrigue me - especially ones that I can actually remember."  - Shatter me Claire, June 1 2011
Wow. Just Wow! I can't believe my blog is now the big 3!! More importantly I can't believe I've actually managed to still be motivated enough to update it. Generally I lose interest with blogs and journals pretty quickly even though I have good intentions but I'm so pleased that I managed to stick it out even though I have massive hiatus periods.

While visitors (and posts!) have dwindled over the years, I am thankful for friendships that have been made via SMC and also that I can clearly see where I've come. My skills still have a long way to go but it's clear that my painting, nail art (and my photography!) have come far over the years. Also I was clearly following the crowd in my early posts and I like to think I've found my own style now.


I decided to go back to where it all started for me. Ozotic 504 was the first polish I featured here and it seemed right to go back to the beginning. That and the fact that I wanted to make amends for the cringefactor that was my first post.


504 was one of the first polishes I brought from piCture pOlish. Sadly they no longer carry the Ozotic range but back when I first received this, multichrome polishes weren't as common as they are now so it was such an exciting time to see something that changed colours before your eyes.


Back in the day, Ozotic 504 was called "Twilight" and it's so easy to see why. The colour shifts from that orange/brown/red right through to a purple/blue. 504 is also quite sheer so I've layered it over a black polish.


I highly doubt I'll ever EVER be able to take a shot like this again with a clear split of colour down the middle. I haven't mastered underwater shots so natural light it is!!

As I mentioned earlier, 504 has been discontinued but you can still find bottles popping up on blogsales and on storenvy if you are super wanting it but there are many dupes now on the market that don't require layering which is handy for those lazy people like myself!

Thanks for popping by and if things go to plan then June should be a great month. Hope you pop your head back in to see what's happening! :)
