Búk 116 with Nfu Oh & Essence flakie comparison

Hey darlings! What's in the news today? I'm having a coffee day today, first a coffee/tea time with a couple of friends, including one of the darlings that came to Slovenia for a couple of days (she went to Spain for a year) and then another later in the evening, so I'm really happy about that. :) 

Today I want to show you my roadtrip mani. This baby lasted for three days and I still didn't get tired of it, but the mani got so chipped I just had to remove it. BTW; being tired as hell and in a hotel room isn't really the best motivation for a foil removal. The first time I regreted putting a flakie on my nails. 

I also compared Essence Waking up in Vegas with Nfu Oh 49 on this mani, I wondered how close they get. 




If you see any kind of difference between them, your sight is better than mine. I didn't see any difference, they are both the same. In general Nfu Oh has a bit bigger flakies, but that's the only difference I could find. They're both amazing, don't you think? 

My base colour was Búk 116, the only polish from Lithuania that I haven't tried yet. I've already talked about it, the brand is a local Lithuanian brand with a nice brush and an old but good formula. 116 is a bit disappointing though. It looks SO awesome in the bottle, sadly the shimmer is much much weaker on the nails. If it would be so strong as it is in the bottle this colour would rock.



Even in lightbox the shimmer is poor, on softer light it disappears completely. This was three coats, the formula is a bit runny and smelly, but all in all a very well behaved polish. I just wish the shimmer would be more visible. Still, it's an excellent base for the flakies! :) 

What do you think about these babies? Did you get any of the top coats from Re-mix your style LE?

Thank you for reading!

  2. Wow thank you for the comparison. I love flakes and I'm really eager to find the Essence Remix collection. Moreover I own a couple Nfu-Ohs but not n. 49 so I won't have a dupe in case I buy this!!

  6. Leann-fishy, hey, welcome to my blog! :) I talked about Búk as a brand in my first post on them: http://ulmiel.blogspot.com/2011/07/buk-199.html, sorry, I forgot to link it in this post.

    They are a local Lithuanian brand and I got them as a gift from my boyfriend when he traveled there, so I doubt we can even get it anywhere else. :/ But if you ever go there, search for them, or find a lithuanian swapper, if you're interested in them. :)

  7. This reminds me of the new Essie luxe effects- shine of the times. Has the same flakies with the duochromeness as well! Am digging that base color!
