Please don't forget to enter OCC Nail Polish Giveaway in Deven Green. It ends April 1, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. PST (Pacific time).


When I attended the OCC Spring 2014 Launch Event/Party (Plastic Passion), they gave everyone at the party an OCC nail polish in Deven Green. Not only that, we all got signature from the gorgeous model Deven Green.

It's a gorgeous green and perfect for spring/summer weather, as well as, Saint Patrick's Day. For that reason, I decided to wear it this week. Since I have a thorough review of OCC nail polish in Rx, this will be based on that.
Here's a closer look at the ingredients.
Here's a closer look at the nail polish and it's very true to color!
Here's a closer look at the brush. The width of the brush is comparable to OPI but longer.
Here's what I did with the OCC nail polish in Deven Green. I applied 2 coats on the index and pinkie finger. I also applied 2 coats on the tip of my middle finger. I applied 2 coats of Essie in Blanc on the ring finger. I drew 4 small hearts on my ring finger with Formula X for Sephora in Mr. Positivity, as well as, line the middle finger and the stem on the four leaf clover. I dotted the center of the four leaf clover with Deven Green from OCC. Then I topped it off with Butter London P.D. Quick Topcoat.

Now for my overall opinion... Since I did a thorough review of OCC nail polish in Rx, I will base this upon that. First of all and with all OCC nail polishes, they're extremely opaque. You can even apply one coat if you like. That'll be good enough but I applied two coats. Secondly, the brush is perfect. It's the same width as OPI brushes but longer. It's quick and easy to paint your nails. With that said, the consistency is a little bit thicker than medium consistency. I wouldn't say it's thick but you do have to be quick applying the polish. This would be perfect for people who are quick in polishing their nails, as well as, professionals. I'm kind of slow and find it hard to paint around the top of the cuticle. It's also not that great to go over the part you painted or at least for me. Lastly and in my opinion, I like this better than Rx from OCC. Rx would stain my skin if I accidentally touch but with this, it doesn't. I cannot tell you the lasting power since I'm on my second day of wearing this. I can tell you there's no chips or cracks. From the looks of it, it would last me a week.

Would repurchase: Yes.
