My stash of nail polish has grown disproportionally over the past couple of months - buying two Helmers did not really help :-S - however I so far have not had any Nfu Oh's acquired (tststststs...). This changed recently when I finally caved and ordered my first bottle of Nfu Oh through a French e-tailer.
May I introduce Nfu Oh 59, here to the right of A England Camelot which I used as base colour:
I applied one coat of Nfu Oh 59 over two coats of A England Camelot (my favourite black nail polish). I used A England The Knight Base Coat and Essie Good to Go for Top Coat.

Isn't this an amazing Flakie pay-off in one single coat (apologies for my dry hands)? I got so many compliments for this mani, I could hardly believe it. First and foremost by a stylist I met at the Dior booth with Globus. He was gushing and oooh-ing all over my nails - I could not resist feeling just a tad smug ;-). I have to state though that Flakies did not yet seem to have made it into Swiss beauty stores (at least I have not spotted any up to now, so in case I missed any displays please apologise) - I had to explain Nfu Oh 59 over and over again (now how would you do that please?) - I ended up showing the bottle shot on my iPhone ;-)
And because as of late I cannot leave a mani alone ......
... I added one coat of Naild'it Caramel Apple. Quite sparkilicious I find. For the improbable case that I would be invited to an incredibly glamorous event this would be my mani. And I would wear a 40ies inspired sultry dress in a deep, dark red and black velvet peep toes and an art-deco clutch box with enamel inlays in gold, red and black and ..... OK back to planet Earth ;-)
Final thoughts: while I like the glitzy version I still think it is a shame to alter ANYTHING with Nfu Oh 59. I will wear it as shown in the first pictures: one coat over a dark base colour and a shiny, glossy finish. Basta.
I ordered Nfu Oh 59 with Pshiiit Boutique and A England Camelot with A England's website.
Do you have any Nfu-Oh??? Do you have a polish that reminds you of a secret elixir from a fairytale?
Looking forward to reading your comments!!!
Thanks for reading!!
