OCC Swamp Thing

Hi all!

I can't believe I haven't posted this earlier. I've sorted my pictures and edited them before I went on vacay to Spain, so this has been sitting in my swatches folder for well over a month.. Whoops! This is another polish that the lovely Rachel sent me in our awesome swap. It's bit of a yukkie color but I really like it!!

It's an awesome color, I don't own anything near this color. It's the same kind of color as Orly's It's Not Rocket Science; it's pretty and ugly at the same time. This is one of those colors that you love or you hate :)

Application was just as with Blackboard; it practically applied itself. Awesome formula! I was a bit scared that I had some luck with Blackboard, but Swamp Thing has the same formula so that's great.

I thought I could do a little subtle Konad on it since I now own more than one of these muddy swampy olive green cremes, so I stamped with RBL No More War.

It turned out alright! The stamping makes No More War almost look matte, which it is not, obviously. I do like the subtle effect on this one, so I'll try something similar again in the near future :)

What do you think of Swamp Thing? Do you like these kind of colors or do you hate them?


  1. I don't really like it on it's own. It's nice to wear it for just one day, but not for an entire week. I do like the konad combo though!


  2. i would like to try this kind of color...I like the combi u used for stamping..

  3. I love the color & the nailart!!
    So pretty :-D

  4. That's such an awesome colour! I need it too now :)
    Love the Konad you did on it, very nice!

  5. I love the combo a little more then just color alone :)
