OCC (Obsessive Conpulsive Cosmetics) has some wonderful nail polish. They have super unique colors, and I'm a huge fan of them. They're probably my favorite nail polish brand. They have other cosmetics, but I've never used them. I have an eyeliner, but I'm trying to finish my other eyeliner first. I always have backups for makeup, and usually a secondary backup too, just in case! I'm a Virgo, so I'm forever prepared!
Today I wanted to swatch two shades by OCC that are perfect for fall, and perfect for anyone really. Black Dahlia and Black Metal Dahlia. Let's talk about Black Dahlia first.
Clearly I have to clean them up some, but this is Black Dahlia. This is an opaque blackest blackened red, as is described on the website. Truth be told, it's a little more red than I wanted. I'd prefer it more black, but that's just me. You can tell as soon as you look at it that it's a shade of red. FYI totally unrelated, I messed my nails up like 4 different times doing them lol. Patience is a virtue my friends, and it's one I don't have.
I love how dark this is, and it is nice that it's not just black. Everyone tells me I need to add more color in my life, so BOOM, color added. It's a very vampy color, and it reminds me of blood. For me personally, that's a win. I love this color, even if it's not as blackened as I anticipated it would be. This is using two coats of polish.
Let's talk Black Metal Dahlia now.
This color is deep-maroon with red pearl. Again, lighter than I anticipated, but I like it! It's a pretty color. Everything looks darker on their website than in real life. It's still a really pretty color for fall. It's got some shimmer, which makes you feel a little fancy. *pinky toe up!* I wanted to show you the difference between the two shades.
These are two very different, yet very complimentary shades. All their polishes are $10, but make sure your signed up for their emails and follow them on Instagram because they do sales a lot and that's when you should stock up! I wanna check out their Lip Tar too, since I decided to make this my Year of Lip Stick. Every product OCC makes is vegan and cruelty free, so you can shop without worry!
Happy Fall, my friends! 🍂🍁 Here's to the best season of the year!
