O.C.C. Lo-Fi

Overall:

When I first saw the Lo-Fi color, I was a bit confused about my feelings.  I didn’t know whether I liked it or not.  It’s definitely a color that’s never been seen before, but at the same time, it reminded me of split pea soup or baby food.  However, once I applied it, I fell in love!  It’s a not quite pastel green that resembles a hyper lime green* color or even pistachio gelato.  The satin finish is GORGEOUS!

The formula is a bit thin, and I find that it looks best when you apply 2 thin layers rather than goop on a thick layer.  That’s what I did initially and boy, that was not the way to go.

It’s just such a fun and different color to wear on your nails.  It’s just the right pop of color that’s not too Easter or neon, perfect for this summer’s colorful trend.  Depending on the nature of your job, I would say it’s safe to wear to work!
