Inglot O2M Breathable Nail Enamel - #664 Swatches and Review!

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, I know I did! So, on Saturday morning I spent about an hour looking up swatches of any Inglot Nail Polish I could find. They had been on my want list for a while and as a present to myself for passing all my uni exams (YAY), I decided to go on an Inglot spree. I dragged my brother to the shops (he dragged me to the tattoo parlour beforehand, no ink done, just ideas, it tempted me again I will say that though) and ended up buying 5 polishes, one from their normal range and 4 from the O2M Breathable Range (some were 50% off, I need to go back there and search for some more) and I am so happy with what I got! 

Here are four of the polishes I chose! They don't have names unfortunately, just numbers (kind of reminds me of sheep and cattle, just get a number and no name LOL). These are #387, #687, #636 and #615. I got the purple for 50% off which I was so pleased with! Now onto the one I am wearing now...The bright green!!!

This is #664, or as I have dubbed it, "Electric Lime". It is a gorgeous, bright, easy to apply green with a hint of shimmer. The shimmer didn't transfer to the nail as you see in the bottle which was a pity as it looked amazing! I tried looking outside and was turning my hand in all different directions to try and find some shimmer. I saw a tiny amount but the top coat seemed to have dulled it a bit. This was 2 coats with a top coat. It applied like butter and the brushes are fantastic. I asked the girl who was helping me if there was any trick to the O2M formulated ones but she said just use it like a normal polish and it will be thicker so you'll need less coats, which is completely true! 

I love the bottles of these O2M polishes! They are described on the Inglot website as "contains the Polymer KS_02, which allows moisture and oxygen to pass through to keep nails in the best condition. Does NOT contain toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) or camphor". I thought this was a great idea and was so keen to try it out! I havent taken this off yet so don't know about the condition of my nails, whether this polish has made a difference or not I can't be sure! I thought for a bright green this would be thin and shocking to apply but it was just like a normal creme. Amazing! I am not a huge green polish fan but this one I don't mind, its not as bright in real life as in the photos, was very tricky to capture! 

I tried to capture the shimmer in the bottle but it didn't work as well as I thought. Oh well! It is there though! Lol. I have had no problems with chipping or anything, the staying power is great! I am up to day 3 of wear and only have very very slight tip wear.  

I was really impressed with the Inglot colours. I can't believe I have never stopped by their stall before, the shopping centre we go to is about 10 mins from home and believe me, mum and I are there a lot haha. We may go back today actually and if we do I am checking out the 50% off container again for sure! These were quite expensive, the pink, as it is from their normal range, was $16 and the O2M colours were $21 (one was 50% off remember! LOL). I think it is cheaper online in the US but only by a few dollars which isn't too bad. If you haven't tried these give them a go, even try just one and see if you can stop there! They have a huuuuge range of colours (next time I will try and take a sneaky photo of the polish display for you) and believe me, I took ages deciding which ones to get! I hope you enjoy this and try some Inglot colours for yourself! Just google Inglot and you will be on your way!

Have a beautiful day, I have another week of holidays, wahoo! :D
