Nail Polish by OCC and Milani

Get Tarred!

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, or OCC, has the silkiest, shiniest, and most fluid black nail polish ever! This fast drying polish is quickly becoming one of my favorites so in anticipation of using this one up quickly, I’m already placing an order for a replacement.  The color is called “Tarred” and that’s exactly what the polish looks like–inky and super black.  A professional quality polish for only $8.00 is totally worth every penny if you want pretty nails. According to OCC’s site, their polish is, “Formulated with the Editorial Manicurist in mind, the result is lots of color using very little product for nails that are camera-ready just moments after the application.”   You can order Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Nail Lacquer directly from their website!
