Nfu Oh #68 is a lovely purple and silver foil. It’s such a beautiful color! I was sad when it was time to take this one off.
Application was very good. Two coats and a top coat shown.
I try to provide nice consistent images for my blog posts. This includes nice looking cleaned-up cuticles, but hey we are all human. What can I say? When I took these images I was thinking, “oooohhhh look at that shimmer!!” Later I looked at the images again and realized that although I had cleaned my cuticles with nail polish remover, I did not do a very good job! I cleaned them again, and took more pictures. At that point the sun was going down, and the color was not at its vibrant best. So in the interest of an honest representation, I included the best pics of the color. What can I say…my cats made me do it!
Nfu Oh’s 117 is a lovely bluish-purple or “blurple” shimmer (the pictures lean a little more blue, but it appears more purple to my eye). In the sunlight it practically glows!
Application was so-so. Usually I find that shimmer polishes tend to apply very nicely. This one was a bit thick and harder to control, but it was opaque and fairly level in two coats.
Two coats and a top coat shown.
Nfu Oh GS-14 is a holo glitter in a black base. I know it’s a cliché, but in the bottle the rainbow flash of the dense glitter contrasting with the black looks a bit like the night sky
Application was not so great on this one. It went on fairly thick, and dried with a gritty finish. I was able to smooth it a bit by using two coats of top coat. The color and texture reminded me a bit of asphalt. I love sparkle and I think it is a very striking look, but I can’t help being a bit disappointed in the texture.
Two coats and two coats of top coat shown.
#64 is another of Nfu Oh’s amazing holo glitter polishes. Unlike some other holo polishes, the Nfu Ohs I have tried show the holo effect strongly under both artificial and natural light conditions.
Application was not that great. I found it a bit patchy and uneven, but it did dry pretty smooth. A top coat took care of any remaining issues. Anyway who cares with results like these?!? Nfu Oh #64 is a knockout!
Three coats and a top coat shown.
Nfu Oh #53 is a flake glitter polish in a blue shimmer base. The flakes are duochrome with a red/green shift. Very cool! This polish is fairly sheer, and takes a number of coats to build-up the color. I like it much better for layering!

I really like this combination. The two together look very similar to the bottle color. The glitter does look a bit washed out though Application was good, but this polish is a bit thick. Two coats of Nfu Oh #53 shown over three coats of China Glaze Frostbite (no top coat).
Nfu Oh #53 over Finger Paints Add & Abstract
The difference between the bottle color and the color on the nail is much more pronounced in real life. The sunlight picture much more accurately reflects the teal that my eye saw. For some reason the glitter showed-up more against the somewhat muted background of Add & Abstract.

Nfu Oh #50 is flake glitter suspended in a medium purple jelly. The flakes are a really cool duo chrome green that shifts blue. They remind me of iridescent cellophane gift wrap. By itself the polish is pretty sheer, and takes many coats to really build-up the color. I like it much better for layering (shown over BB Couture’s Beetle Bailey). This one is lots of fun!
Application was pretty good. This polish is thick, but it leveled out pretty well especially for a glitter polish.

After seeing some Nfu Oh swatches on CARINAE L’ETOILE’S NAIL POLISH SWATCHES, I had to grab a few. Nfu Oh has some absolutely amazing and unique glitters! Thanks again for the tip on Fabuloustreet.com Their selection and customer service were both outstanding!
I thought that #64 and #65 would be fairly similar to OPI DS Amethyst and Glamour, but as a sucker for sparkle I ordered them anyway. Boy was I wrong! #64, #65, Amethyst and Glamour are holographic glitters, but Nfu Oh’s glitter is much denser. Also in indirect lighting the DS polishes are subdued and #64 and #65 are still dazzling.
Words are really insufficient to describe this amazing holo glitter. Seriously this is one of those I can’t stop staring at my nails polishes. Sadly it is raining today, so I don’t have any sunshine shots. I have included some comparison shots to make-up for it It is a cliché, but honestly you have to see this to believe it!
Application on this one was a bit problematic. I kept getting bald spots. It took three coats to get mostly opaque coverage. This polish dried to a slightly powdery finish. However, any application issues were totally worth the stunning results!
