If you have been following our blog for a while, you would have noticed that I'm a huge sucker for duochromes or multichromes. And one of my all-time favorite brands has to be Ozotic. Their color-shifts are simply mind-blowing (see Ozotic 505 for case in point).
While their 500 series have received much love and praises, their 700 series are sadly neglected despite being pretty amazing in their own right! Just look!
Ozotic 730. 2 coats on its own.
Gorgeous duochrome that shifts from red to gold (see color shift from index to pinkie). The red is much richer and slightly brighter in real life. The perfect fall shades. :L
730 is significantly less sheer than its 500 series counterparts and can be worn on its own without compromising the color-shift. Unlike 505, the formula is not as runny - it's slightly thicker and flows smoothly on the nails. I had a little problem with my brush though. It felt a little strange and did not fan out very much. Thankfully, that didn't really affect the painting and I was able to get away with minimal clean up.
Because I've heard that the Ozotic 700 series look different when layered over white and black (how cool is that?!), I simply had to try it out for myself.
So here's 2 coats of 730 layered over white:
Here, 730 took on a slightly softer and more pastel look with the red turning a shade of coral-pink and the gold looking more yellow.
And this is 2 coats of 730 layered over black:
(two pictures to show the gold and the red)
Here, 730 takes on a dirtier, grunge-look. The red looks almost fuchsia and the gold turns slightly olive.
