An Nfu.Oh Haul

August 5, 2010
By

Here is a pretty haul from Nfu.Oh. The name is an oddity but the polishes are quite a nail lover’s dream. Conceived by South Korean nail artist Enfu Oh, these eponymous lacquers are manufactured in France. Like many Korean nail polishes – Etude House and Nature Republic come to mind – the glass bottles have embossed features that give them a touch of whimsy. I’m not fond of the cheap-looking font but the bottles are Anna Sui-esque with the corset motif, no?

In the US, Nfu.Oh polishes are uniformly priced at US$12.50 at e-tailer FabuolouStreet. In Singapore however, they are priced quite differently. According to the Singapore distributor, the glitter flake polishes are S$40 and the holographic ones are S$43, while the Aqua Base (a necessity for the holos to show up) is S$39.  I appreciate that we are able to see/purchase products from this brand in person but I’m quite taken aback by the disparity in pricing.

    May I know where did you purchase these in Singapore? I’ve been wanting to get them for a really long time!

      Hi Teng Yee and Sara,

      They can be found at Ecsalonce, a local nail school (as well as the exclusive distributor of the brand), located at 171B Goldhill Centre, Thomson Road.

    What colors are these? They look amazing, I own 50 and 51 myself but I now have the urge to indulge on some more colors! A shame that the shipping is a little pricey for Europe :(

      Hi Inês,

      They are 54, 52, Holo 63 and Aqua Base (if you put your cursor on the photo, the caption listing the colours will show up :)). Aren’t they wonderful? They can be expensive out of the States though. :( I wonder how much they cost in Korea itself…probably much cheaper!

      Hi Mar,

      I wish I had better sunlight in my home with which to photograph my nails! I’ll try. :)

    Wah.. price difference is so big. :-o In U.S., it costs roughly around MYR40. While in Singapore, after price conversion, it is near MYR100!!

    Is this a drugstore brand or mid-range?

      Hi Milktea,

      I don’t think it’s considered a drugstore brand – it’s not readily available and the polishes are more than S$20, even going by the lower US price.

      Hi Sarah,

      Which brand are they from? These colours are stunning! :)

    WOW had no idea they cost so much! But I still love them enough to want to get them.

      Hi Farah,

      They are quite pricey here in SG. You could try VPost for FabulouStreet, if you’re ordering more than a few?

    Hi,

    How did you manage to ship them over to Singapore? Did you used Vpost?

    Thanks,
    Eleen

      Hi Eleen,

      I didn’t use VPost. That is an option to consider if you’re ordering more than a few though!

    OK I will look at the site. But need my CC to breathe a lil.

    Wow. i came across this entry while googling nfu oh and I am seriously disgusted at how much nfu oh costs here. I mean you can get Chanel for the same amount if i’m not wrong. i was planning to go down to the nail school to get a bottle but that was before i knew how obscene the prices are; thanks for helping me save a trip.

      Hi Rx,

      I know what you mean! The prices are undoubtedly high. I must say that the glitter flakes wear very well though! :)
