Nfu Oh 51 and another varnish related present

Hello darlings! Well, I started to type away this entry and then the main fuse in the hous blew. o.O Awesome, especially on Sunday night. Luckily my father knows a few electricans. Anyway. I hope my swatches are still where they're supposed to be. Today I have for you my last flakie that I haven't shown you yet! And this one I'm wearing alone, I fell in love with the look at a blog, don't know which one, nor am I sure if the blogger is still active. Too bad, the swatches she does are awesome!

 The best I could do, I think. At least the most accurate. 

 Up and bellow have too much red in the base, but this is how it gets sometimes, but it's not the look this polish has most of the time.

 Here it is! This is how this beauty looks like, BUT cut the VNL, because it's not there! Also, flakies are more alive.

A bit picture heavy, but this is Nfu Oh 51. Now I finally understand all the bloggers that are always telling us how pictures don't do this one justice. They really don't. You can catch a glimpse of the colour play and the awesome jellines of gorgeous purple base colour, but no more than that. At different lighning this baby acts like hundred varnishes in one. Yesterday in the pub it turned is such an amazing polish, I really wished I had my camera with me, but I don't think I could capture it. The purple got really dark but still remained purple, and the flakies somewhat faded, and out it came this gorgeous goldish-reddish-orangish glitter or rather sparkle, it was so amazing! And so vivid, totally awesome.  I don't think I need to write about the beauty of this one much anymore ... if you own it, you know what I'm talking about. If you don't, I'm sure it's on your WL. If not, get it there. :)

This was four coats. VNL was minimal then, my camera emphasized it. I added SV, because I was in a hurry, but I like how glossy Nfu Oh are by themselves. I still think 51 will be better layered, though. Although 4 coats give the mani this amazing depth, since it's a jelly base, the multichrome effect of flakies is somewhat subdued. But I love it anyway. I was slightly disappointed by the fast and large amount of tip wear I got the first day, but that's the only problem I really had with this mani. 

Now that I also had full mani with Nfu Oh alone I feel I can talk about the formula too. It has the B3F syndrome, and quite heavy one too. Polish drop can really soak your nail if you're not careful. But if you pay attention to it, it's not a big deal. I love their brush, it's really perfect, really easy to work with. I'm in love with these Opals. Really. They're gorgeous, simply put. My favourite is still 56 and I bet you saw that one coming. But I love them all. Great polish, they really spice up the mani. I don't get sick of the mani after days either, because they're so interesting. My WL of Nfu Oh is ridiculous. Right up there with China Glaze and BB Couture. Wow. I want them all. I'm discovering new love for jellies with their Pure Colours. I always prefered creme over jellies because jellies give you VNL and I simply can't live with that ... but seeing swatches of Pure Colours ... man, I want them, so gorgeous! 

I think that's just about all the praise I can gather in a post about a single brand without getting deleted. ;) And now to the nail polish part of my bday present I got yesterday. The present was a really nice surprise, I totally didn't see it coming! :) I got two of Depends I was really missing, I didn't order them because of my limit of spending money on polish, that I'm trying to stay true to (and failing most of the time). Depend 221 and the blue crackle Depend. Yay! Thanks guys! :*

Tomorrow we start with Red comparison week, woohoo! Hope you'll like it. :)

Do share your thoughts about Nfu Oh! :)

Thank you for reading!


  1. This is a gorgeous polish! I have this Nfu Oh, too :))

  2. I added a bunch of flakies to my wish list a few hours ago.... I want them ALL!

  3. I love N'Fu Oh 51 :) Great pics! I can never get enough!

  4. It looks amazing on your nails! You have such gorgeous nails :) I really agree, this polish is super hard to photograph!

    I find it a bit funny that I wore my #51 this weekend too (still am).. What a coincidence :)

  5. alluring_mum, great, then you know what I'm talking about! :)

    Amber, welcome to my blog! And yes, I understand you completely! Still plenty of flakies on my WL too ... ;)

    GothamPolish, thanks, and welcome!

    Jette Fromm, thanks hun! :) Hehe, and like I said on your blog - great minds think alike. ;)

    nail crazy, uh, onda ga moraš imati! :)

    Hvala za komentarje! Thanks for the comments!

  6. I'm super impressed that that is on its own. I always thought they needed to be layered a little bit. I keep holding back on getting these because it's going to be extremely difficult to limit myself to just a few, but this one seems like a #1 choice for sure.

  7. That is gorgeous and i cant take my eyes off this!!

  8. I can't stop saying that Nfu oh polishes are something amazing! Love the finish <3

  9. Prav imaš, res ga je treba dati na WL. :)

  10. SAVRŠENO!!!! Oči su mi ostale na fotkama i nikako da se vrate nazad.. ;)

  11. Oh yeah - I love their flakies and hologram collection and ... Jope - my WL is as long as yours. :D

  12. miremusings - I was quite surprised to see it was so opaque only after 4 coats too, I didn't believe I can build it in an opaque colour without 6 or 7 layers. And I'm sure you'll love them, if you get them. :)

    Ivana, kratko in jedrnato. :D I feel you! :D

    Silence is Loud, I couldn't either. Bit annoying if you should listen to the professor. ;) :D

    Elsa P. - they sure are unique. Probably one of the uniquest brands out there.

    Taya, res je, kar kar. :D

    Lalica, hehe, znam kako se osjećaš. :D

    Gejba, indeed, I also love their Pure colours too ... and that's bassicaly the entire set. Help? :D

    Thank you all for your comments!

  13. ♥ this color so much. Now I'm wondering why I have no Nfu-Oh in my collection - this will have to change!

  14. kakšna kombinacija, prelepo!
