I have a present for you….. its really and truly a gift. No, its not a giveaway, that’ll be at post 50 or something! This, is the sparkly, magical goodness of Nfu Oh 61. Now, this polish has had its picture taken many times and has been featured on many blogs- but that’s because its just so gosh darn pretty. Jewels and gemstones ain’t got NOTHIN’ on Nfu Oh 61!
For this manicure, I used one coat of OPI’s Natural Nail Base Coat, three coats of Nfu Oh’s #061 and no topcoat. I even (accidentally) tilted my pinky so you could see what it looks like on an angle. Its actually a silver holographic but because its so holo, its more rainbow than anything.
Do I need to say anything? Really? Are you sure because this polish speaks for itself. It throws rainbows better than diamonds! The bottle should say “WARNING: Wear at your own risk, causes distraction and awe. Don’t drive and admire. Friends don’t let friends drive stupified.” The formula is a little strange, compared to other holo favorites like OPI’s My Private Jet Holographic version (that was the plan for today but I got distracted when I got this in the mail) or OPI’s Blue Moon Lagoon. It goes on a bit patchy, but for this color, I’d deal with anything! If you want to blind someone, just hold up your hand and flashy- flashy Nfu Oh 61 at them!
Need I say more?
Also for your viewing pleasure: as I mentioned, before this came in the mail from a LOVELY swapper on MUA, I planned on doing OPI’s My Private Jet versus Color Clubs Revvvolution, which has been done plenty but I needed my own. When I use dark holos, I always use a dark base. I don’t use the base because they are too transparent (which is pretty much the case) but because I don’t want to waste holo goodness on more than 2 coats (that budgeting thing makes me feel guilty otherwise)…
For THIS manicure, which I hastily removed for Nfu Oh regardless of its greatness, I used one coat OPI’s Natural Nail Base Coat, two coats FingerPaints Shades of Dark and one coat of Seche Vite top coat.
I personally have several dark vampy plum colors for use in layering and when I’m feeling particularly moody or trendy, but this one is a great staple in anyones collection. The jelly polish goes on smooth and is dark purple after one coat. After two, its hard to tell if its purple or black, but its so darn smooth no one bothers to care. Its only downfall is that like most jellies, it tends to flood cuticles easily and bleed a bit into the gap. No worries though, its nothing a good brush and acetone can’t fix!
So. I’m blinded- I just stared at my nails for too long. How about you?
