Today I have a beautiful flakie polish to show you - Nfu Oh #52.
|Nfu Oh #52|
I bought this polish used since I already have #56 and I thought it'd be too close to be worth having both, but jumped the opportunity when I could get it for less than retail. When it arrived I could see there was a major difference, and I'm super excited to have both now :) And won't you know it; I'm already looking at getting a few more, I blame the beautiful bottle design and the major difference I was oblivious to before!
While #56 is green flakies with a subtle blue-ish tinge to it, #52 is equal part blue and green, depending on how light catches it. During the day it flashes both colours, as it gets darker the green becomes more dominant (as the light gets more yellow toned).
I decided to try layering it over black, since I didn't know whether to take a blue or green base colour. I think a blue base will make the blue more obvious and I bet a green will bring out the green.
I used Wet'n'Wild Black creme as base, which is a cheap one-coat black. It's been my go-to black base for a while, but I'm running out.. If you know of a good, one-coat black creme, LMK in the comments! :) I've been thinking of Essie Licorice, as I love it's jelly finish.
Anyways, back on flakie track lol. If you're thinking about getting a blue and or or green flakie polish from Nfu Oh I'd definitely recommend #52 and kill two birds with one stone.

I read that Nfu Oh is releasing a series of jellies, called jelly syrups. Judging from the pictures and descriptions, they are very sheer and will never build up to be opaque, but I'm still super excited and hope I will get the opportunity to try a few :) Jellies = layering fun!
