Mish Mash vs Franken vs Holo top coat + with no black base

Alright lovelies, today I have some comparison photos for you. 

First up is a three finger swatch that does a comparison between:
  • Ozotic Mish Mash 532
  • My holo multichrome franken made with Spectraflair 1500-35 and Ozotic 505
  • Ozotic 505 with a holo top coat.
I'm not telling you which is which yet, cause I want you to have a good look before knowing.

So, what do you think?  My opinion is that they are all indistinguishable from each other.  The colour shift in the multichrome is identical, and the holo effect in all of them looks the same too (even though I did a shitty job at capturing the holo this time!).  I knew my franken was going to be identical, but I didn't expect to get the exact same appearance from just the holo top coat applied over 505.

For the record, index finger on the left is my franken, middle finger is Mish Mash 532 and the ring finger on the right is Ozotic 505 with a single layer of Hits Hefesto Holographic top coat.

Next up I did a skittle swatch of each of the Mish Mash polishes one their own without the black base.  This was four coats of each one.

In the shade above and full sun below.  From left to right: 532, 533, 534 and 531.

The colour shift isn't very strong without the black base but I think these are really quite pretty on their own.  It's a totally different look, much softer but still with a great holographic shine.  I've been wearing these polishes all week over a black base and at the moment I'm a bit over the black base which makes my cuticles look stained around the dry edges.  Its a nice change to see something pretty and pastel.


  1. Thanks for the fantastic comparisons!

  2. Wow ... that franken of yours just is amazing! Thanks for the comparisons~

  3. Thanks Cathy! Looks like we have all saved ourselves $14 each bottle by just making our own Spectraflair topcoats!!
    Love ya!

  4. The polishes on the first pics look totally identical to me. That's simply awesome! :)

  5. Are you kidding me? The three polishes look identically... I always have to say the same thing: Your frankens are amazing!!! :D

  6. That's odd... I guessed right on all of them even though they are pretty much indistinguishable.
    I think I'm spending too much time with holos, hahaha!
    Thanks for the comparison :-)
