Official Ohio State Nail Polish Swatches: Scarlet and Grey

Ohio State Scarlet and Grey (3 coats of red and 2 coats of "grey")

Go Buckeyes! In case you didn't know, I grew up in Ohio and have been a huge Ohio State fan for years. My brother got me these officially licensed polishes for my birthday, but I thought it would be best to wait for the football season to start before swatching them. The scarlet is the appropriate color of red and is a shimmery jelly which means it needs 3 coats. The formula was a bit runny, too. The other color....come on, that is black with shimmer. On the plus side, the formula on that was perfect. I am the worst at nail art so I am a bit embarrassed because some people are so awesome at it. I used the Essence nail dot applicator from Ulta to make the (imperfect) dots. Overall, I like these, but the black instead of the grey sort of kills it for me. Anyway, good luck to your favorite college team! And, of course, GO BUCKS!
