This is new-to-me-brand called Oh My Golly! Don’t you just love trying new brands?? The swatches I’m sharing are from Oh My Golly’s new Crystal Sand collection. Right off the bat I’ll tell ya- I’m loving these OMGs! Let’s check them out…..
First we’ll look at Oh My Golly’s Hematite which is the darker of the two. Hematite is a black textured polish with what I’d call a ‘sandpaper’ finish. This black polish has glitter in it that shifts between silver and gold. I think I captured the effect in my pics- if you look close you can see how some nails are a bit silver while others have a hint of gold in them. Hematite has a nice fluid formula and was easy to apply. One coat looked pretty sheer so I was afraid it would need several coats. But surprisingly, two coats was all I needed for perfect coverage. Hematite dried fast! I applied my coats in between housework and they didn’t get messed up or smudged.
I love Hematite’s glitzy glam look. It totally reminds me of new years eve and would be perfect for a holiday party! I bet if you dressed up and wore this on your nails you’d feel like a million bucks!
Emerald is just as the name suggests- a beautiful emerald green. I will be so happy to wear this color come wintertime! The glitter in this one is green and silver. It really lights up and reminds me of holiday decorations. The formula is great on this one too- it dried fast and two coats was sufficient, but I ended up using three coats for these pics. I could really see myself wanting to wear Emerald on Christmas day. It feels so festive to me!
Removal on these was as I expected. It was harder to remove than a cream polish, but easier than a glitter bomb. It seemed to wear well without chipping, and I’m so happy to add these OMGs to my collection.
Oh My Golly Crystal Sand polishes are proudly made in the Philippines. Now I’m supposed to tell you where you can find them…and unless you live in the Pacific, I have no idea. If any of you know where to buy OMGs, please share in the comments section. The only suggestion I have is that you could try to make friends with someone from the Philippines! 🙂 I actually received my OMG polishes from The Nailinator in a swap. Rachael- I am thrilled with all my goodies, thank you dear!
» Two days ago Typhoon Haiyan ripped through the Philippines and Rachael I’m so thankful that you and your family are safe. I’ve seen on the news that the destruction is unparalleled my heart goes out to everyone in the Pacific. I am counting my blessings right now and I hope that I can help in what ever way possible. I’d like to share an article HERE by Huff Post that lists how you can help too by donating to World Food Program, American Red Cross, The Philippine Red Cross, or any of these charities that will put your money to good use for disaster relief efforts.
