Happy Saturday! What I've got for you today are the swatches and my complete review of the recently launched OMG French Manicure Collection, these are 6 french inspired neutral-pastel hybrid cremes, the colors remind me of my favorite french macarons. ;)
I know it's been a while since I did a full collection review, I'm currently more focused on posting about my nail art designs, but this collection got my attention and I decided that I need to do a complete swatches and review feature about these gorgeous babies, because simply using them for my designs will not do them justice.
First up is OMG Mademoiselle (Young Woman) a mint pastel creme, with a blue undertone, the color is more subtle IRL, my lighting and camera made it look brighter than it's real color, on my nails are two medium coats, no top coat, the formula is good, not too thick nor too thin, dries a bit faster than normal.
Second polish is OMG Je t'aime (I love you) a dusty lilac pastel creme, that reminds me a lot of my moms' fave italian nude, though this is lighter, on my nails are two medium coats, no top coat, same good formula not too thick nor too thin.
Third polish from the collection is OMG Deja Vu (Already seen) a very subtle greige creme, perfect for everyday wear if you're an office girl (just like me), on my nails are two medium coats, no top coat, the formula is a bit thicker than the first two, but it's the kind of thick that I really like because it's easier to build and it doesn't pool on my cuticles, it also dries faster than normal.
Next up is my personal favorite from the French Manicure collection, OMG Avant Garde (new art technique) a warm light rose creme, that complements any skin tone, on my nails are two medium coats, no top coat, great formula, a bit thin, but not the 'gonna pool your cuticles' thin, dries a bit faster than normal.
Fifth polish is Tu es belle (you are beautiful) a pretty gray creme, with blue undertones, on my nails are two thick coats, no top coat, same OK formula as the first two polishes, dries faster than normal. Now, I know the streaks are super visible in this one, but I promise it's just the bad brush that I've got combined with my impatience lol.
Last but not the least is OMG C'est la vie (Such a life) a pale tan creme, another perfect nude for office girls out there, on my nails are two medium coats, no top coat, same formula as Avant Garde, dries faster than normal.
And were done!
Here are my final thoughts about the OMG French Manicure collection, all I can say is Wow! I haven't been hooked to an all creme collection for a very long time because of all the hype with textured, mattes, multichromes, holo, etc. OMG just hit the jackpot with these colors, they are not your usual boring neutrals, and also not the bright bleached neon pastel type that you have to think twice before you slap some on your nails specially if you're working in a corporate office, it has the right amount of color without being too showy, like when neutrals and pastels had a baby, it's this collection.
Now I wanna talk about the formulas, it's hard to find a neutral or pastel that is as pigmented as these babies, I can actually run with just two medium coats, if you're more patient than me you can try three thin coats for a more polished and streak free nails. I love this kind of formula that this collection have, the not to thin not too thick as I described it, specially Avant Garde and C'est la vie, they are my ultimate favorites from this collection, color wise, and formula wise, regarding my swatch of Tu es belle it's really the combination of a bad brush (PR samples can have this kind of bummers) and my impatience, i tried trimming the brush and alas that happened 😂 so if you're eyeing that color go ahead, promise, the formula is as OK as the rest of this collection. :)
The OMG French Manicure Collection will be available real soon in all leading department stores and supermarket nationwide, with a SRP of Php30.
