Autumn Nail Art (Already!) with the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Unknown Pleasures Collection
It’s Friday! Woot! I love seeing all the new collections of my standby favorites, but it’s also fun to try out a brand that’s new to WPP. With that said, this is the first time that Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) nail lacquer has made an appearance on the blog. What’s the occasion? Their Fall release, the Unknown Pleasures Collection (see original press release here), will be available online next week (5 August). And for the first time ever, OCC Nail Lacquers will be carried in select Sephora stores starting 19 September (details and links at the end of this post). So in honor of this momentous occasion, I’ve created some Fall-toned nail art using the six polishes in the Collection.
This collection was inspired by shades that made their debut on the Fall/Winter runways. The range is edgy, but still unmistakably Fall. The gradient fingers from cuticle to tip are Pagan, a deep purple creme, Poison, a shimmery/metallic, forest green, and Covet, a warm tan. The dots are Technopagan, an awesome, almost electric, bright, metallic purple. I started the striped nails with the gray creme, Dangerous. The color at the very tip is Distortion, a metallic navy blue/green. Visit Vampy Varnish’s post here to see individual swatches.
My first experience with OCC was great. The formula was really nice, especially the cremes, and the colors were spot on for the season. All OCC products are 100% vegan and cruelty free too. In addition to these six nail lacquer shades, the OCC Unknown Pleasures Collection also includes six all-new Lip Tar Mattes and Metallics and two online-exclusive Cosmetic Colour Pencil shades.
The Unknown Pleasures Collection will be available online at Sephora.com, Beautylish.com, and OCCMakeup.com beginning 8/5. For the first time, OCC nail lacquers will be available to try in-store starting 9/19 at participating locations.
