Precision Nail Lacquer Oasis Collection: Review & Swatches

Precision Nail Lacquer has been in the business for over 25 years, but I'd never had the chance to try out any of their polishes before. The brand is available in select salons and beauty suppliers, but probably the easiest way to purchase Precision polishes is from their online store. They retail for $5.95 and each bottle contians 0.55 oz, so you get a good bang for your buck. Their line is also three-free.

I was very intrigued to try out one of their newest collections, The Oasis Collection! The collection features six polishes that capture the feel of the desert sands, as well as the plants and wildlife that call them home! It's a fun idea for a collection and I think the colors are really spot on. So without further ado...

Been There Dune That is a taupe creme. This is an excellent, classic neutral shade that I think would look great on just about anybody. Love it! This is two coats.

Sandstorm is a sandy beige. It starts off a bit sheer but builds up to opacity in three coats.

You're In De-Nile River is a deep greige creme. It's very much in the vein of OPI's classic shade, You Don't Know Jacques, although I think De-Nile has more of a brown slant to it than Jacques does. Either way, it's an awesome color! I can never get enough of shades like this. I used three coats here.

Sahara Deserted Me is a taupe creme that leans pink. It's an odd color to describe and to be honest, I wasn't sure it was going to look good on me when I first saw it in the bottle. But it actually looked a lot better on than I expected it to! It kinda reminds me of hot cocoa mix and I tend to like most things that remind me of food, especially desserts! ;) This is three coats.

Sage is a muted sage green with a haze of silver shimmer cast over it. This is, without a doubt, my favorite of the collection. It is just too perfect!! The shimmer is on the subtle side, yet it still adds so much to this polish. All of the polishes in this collection have good formulas, but Sage's was one of the best, covering in just two coats.

Scorpion King is a deep grey with red and silver shimmer. I gotta say, this polish is totally badass, from the name to the look. It's got an amazing gunmetal look and feel to it! The formula is divine and completely opaque in two coats.

I'm very impressed by this collection and there wasn't really a single shade I didn't like, but my favorites are Sage, Scorpion King and Been There Dune That! There's a great variety of shades and finishes here, so there's something for virtually everyone and the colors could work across a variety of seasons. The whole collection is beautifully done and the formulas are all top-notch too!

Which of these shades is YOUR favorite? Do you own any Precision polishes already?
