Of the Nfu.Oh polishes I’d purchased recently, the one I wanted to try the most was 52, a blue-based lacquer filled with reflective green flakes that give off a beautiful foiled effect. I decided to to apply it over the glittery China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Emerald Sparkle, certain the flakes would show up well over the latter.
And I was right. I didn’t have the ideal lighting to do the look justice but I think you get the gist of it from this collage. I absolutely LOVE the ensuing effect – the blue-green interplay of colours and the irregular flakes unerringly remind me of an Australian opal. I was impressed by the complexity the Nfu.Oh polish brought to the already stunning China Glaze lacquer; the iridescence was nothing short of incredible – thanks to its purple-blue base and foiled flakes, my nails sparkled a different hue at various angles under the light.
As with all shimmer and sparkle nail colours, the look is enhanced by shiny clear polish. That lacquered shine is courtesy of Sally Hansen Mega Shine, my holy grail topcoat! ;)
