OCC Black Dahlia Nail Polish

It doesn’t feel like fall will be here soon, but I figured painting my nails dark burgundy couldn’t hurt. It’ll help me forget that I live in Texas and it’s totally normal to have it still reaching 100 degrees in September.

Now, I love the color of this, but I will admit that the formula isn’t the greatest which is disappointing given that OCC is a little higher end. By the second day I had one or two chips, and it was easy enough to touch them up and reapply a top coat, but normally I don’t have to do that until day four or five. I needed two coats for it to be totally opaque, but that’s pretty standard. Overall it has average performance and needs a tough topcoat or regular touch-ups.

These pictures are from day four after touching up the tips, so they’re a little grown out. Thanks Biotin for making my nails grow weirdly fast. I feel like I apologize for my dry cuticles in every nail post, and I’m going to do it again. I’ve been using Essie’s Apricot Cuticle Oil and they look good after, but I haven’t been diligent about using it. One day I’ll have soft, barely there cuticles.
