A couple of months ago, a lovely NB'er contacted me on MUA and asked if I would like to swap. Of course I would! We both became a little enthousiastic and sent a lot of polish to the other side of the ocean. Unfortunately, the part of the swap that was supposed to arrive in The Netherlands at my address, stranded at customs and was sent back to my swappee after 2 months laying there. Thank god she received them back and she has been so kind to send them in little batches so the polishes will finally be mine!
I got the first package in last week and it contained several of my biggest lemmings, like this beauty. I've been lemming OCC Blackboard ever since I saw Scrangie's swatches but I couldn't get a hold of it since OCC couldn't ship polish overseas. But finally, after loooong looooong months, this baby is mine and I love it!
Err, anyway, let's take a look at zeh prettieh!
OCC Blackboard, two coats in daylight and under my desk lamp (second picture). Blackboard is a gorgeous chalkboard green, slightly dusty creme. Ooooh I love it! It reminds me of school when I was little lol.
Application was great! It almost applied itself and since the polish is so pigmented it's almost a onecoater. If I used a thicker coat, I'm sure I wouldn't have needed the second coat. Drying time was great, dry in just a couple of minutes, without the use of a quickdry topcoat.
OCC Blacboard stamped with imageplate S10 and Konad white. This polish was just screaming for some white stamping to create the illusion of drawings on it with chalk. I love it! Blackboard certainly didn't disappoint me after lemming it for so long :)
What do you think of this beauty?
