Ever since I saw my first swatches of Nfu-Oh flakies, I have been kind of obsessing about getting my hands on some. Becky got me a gorgeous one for Christmas and I got to play with it a couple of weeks ago!
Since I had seen on a couple of other blogs that this polish was fairly sheer, I decided to play with layering on this one. I started off with two coats of Orly It's Up To Blue, a shimmery turquoise. I then added two coats of Nfu-Oh 55, which is a great sheer green full of gold flakies. I love this combination together! It reminds me maybe of a mermaid.. or something along those lines. This was just gorgeous, and I got a lot of compliments on it!
Indoors, artificial light
After a couple of days of wear, I was ready for something a bit different... but still not done enjoying this combo! So I tried something new, and randomly slapped little pieces of blue painter's tape on my nails, painting the exposed areas with China Glaze Little Drummer Boy. Unfortunately all I have is this late night picture in kind of crappy indoor lighting, so it looks almost black instead of pretty dark blue. I thought the blue looked nice with the combo I already had on, and the random design was kind of fun. I may try something like this again in the future.
I am loving my very first Nfu-Oh, I think I am going to have to get me some more of these pretties! :)
