Nfu Oh Haulage

Happy Saturday Fanatics! I’m busy getting ready for the arrival of one of my best college pals (a fellow nail polish fanatic) so I don’t have a ton of time to post today but I just got my first Nfu Oh haul in and I had to share a quick bottle shot. I seriously can’t believe it took me this long to jump on the bandwagon. The colors are stunning and the bottle seriously deserved its ALU Senior Superlative for Best Dressed. I may be late to the party but late is better than never, right?


I ordered the Nfu Ohs from where they retail for $12.50/ea. Shipping was FREE on my order but I don’t know if there is a certain limit you have to hit for that.  Free shipping applies to US orders only.

Are you dying over the flakies or what??  And those greens?  Kill me now.  I understand that 569 is supposed to be a better quality dupe for the original NARS Zulu.  Comparisons will be made.  In the meantime, where are my Nfu Oh fans?  What are your favorite colors from the line?

PS I know I owe you my review of the China Glaze Vintage Vixen “Cat’s Meow” set but due to inclement (read shitty) weather yesterday I was unable to finish my swatches.  The review will go live tomorrow.  Promise!

Disclosure: I paid for these polishes myself.  For more info view my Disclosure Policy.

    Oh man, you need #052 also! It’s like 51, but blue-greenish. So pretty. Long dry time but the effect is worth it!

    • Cat says:

      I agree — 52 is a definite must-have! I use Poshe top coat and it dries very quickly on me.

  2. cescils says:

    Absolutely love the flakies !
    I do prefer the whitish ones as I find them really versatile, but the 51 is definitely one to have. I like to put it over a red or purple polish. Enjoy your beauties :)

  3. Zara says:

    I have to confess I don’t have any Nfu Oh polishes…I am averse to ordering online.

  4. Meika says:

    I love NFU-Oh polishes. I have two of the holos but I don’t have the hang of applying them yet. I always get bald patches. I also have 4 flakies and that 056 is really really sheer.

  5. Linnie says:

    You need #052 !!
    I also love #125 because of the oddness :D a strange green olive/mossy color.

    • Cat says:

      125 is pretty, but it looks EXACTLY like one of the Barielles you collaborated on– I think it’s called Polished Princess.

  6. Rebecca says:

    I have 4 and I love them all!! I haven’t tried the holos yet though.

  7. riss says:

    I love, love their holos and flakies. I also picked up a few creams awhile back and they were awesome too!

  8. V says:

    Oh PLEASE post swatches of 56 on plain nails and then over a green base color! I’ve been dying to try that color but I am afriad it will clash with my olive skin.

  9. Samantha says:

    All I had to do was order one bottle of Nfu-Oh polish, and I got the free shipping. That was what got me into trying the Nfu-Oh’s. My favorites are #61 and #92, which can easily be layered over black or blue and purple colors. I love flakies, but the removal is tough.

  10. Echo7 says:

    My favorite is 59!

  11. zb says:

    I just love Nfu Oh and you got three of my favorites. 051 was the first Nfu Oh I ever bought and it’s amazing. I just got 061 with the recommended base coat which I hear makes a huge difference in application and holo effect. It applied like a dream over the base and was a gorgeous rainbow in the light. I can’t wait to see your comparison of 569 to Zulu! I also ordered from They’re super speedy.

  12. AB says:

    Hi! I found the Chanel Moscou collection at a local macys chanel counter. Is this unusual? Thought I’d ask here- thanks!

  13. mm says:

    Nfu-Oh polishes are gorgeous!
    I’ve been coveting them since forever but sadly, shipping to Australia usually means each bottle of polish is an outrageous price…

  14. Susan says:

    If you decide to layer 56 because it’s too sheer, try it over jade is the new black. Amazing-ness!

    • All Lacquered Up says:

      Thanks for the suggestion. I threw it over 569 real fast and it’s on fire!! Blazing hot green goodness. I already see my bank account taking another hit from the Fabulous Street website.

  15. Mohmlet says:

    #68 is the most amazing purple foil. 394 is For Audrey, but better. 554 is basically the perfect purple jelly.

  16. Meital says:

    51 and 61 looks great!
    I keep telling myself to order Nfu.oh but for some (unknown!) reason I dont..
    Maybe the swatches will change my mind ;)

    btw – this is my first comment but I’ve been a reader for quite a long time now :)

    • All Lacquered Up says:

      Thanks for de-lurking to comment. I did a quick test swatch of the darkest green and SWEET PICKLES it’s amazing. I’m flabbergasted by how well it applies and how gorgeous the color is. Worth every penny. I can’t wait to swatch them all.

  17. ixo says:

    @Meika: You need the special aqua base to be able to apply them properly. It also prolongs the durability.

    • All Lacquered Up says:

      I tried to find the Aqua base coat on FabulousStreet and didn’t see it listed anywhere for purchase? Where can you get it?

      • zb says:

        They might be out of it. I’ve noticed that out of stock items just say can’t be found. There’s a link to it here but if you click through there’s nothing. Hopefully it will be back in stock soon.

        • All Lacquered Up says:

          Thanks for letting me know. I’ll try emailing the company to see if they’re getting more in. I really want the holo to apply well. Have you tried the top coat?

      • ixo says:

        Unfortunately I am in Germany and therefore cannot order from fabulousstreet (boo!, they’ve got more shades to choose from), so got mine from a german company.

        The aqua base is not smooth, so in the meanwhile maybe a base which is rougher would help.

      • dawn says:

        I just typed Aqua Base in the search on FabulousStreet and it brought it up and I ordered it.
        I wonder where FabulousStreet is actually located

  18. bree says:

    i just cant seem to want to shell out money for these and i think the bottle is the reason why! how do these not remind ppl of those tacky torso/corset purses that were “in” [god knows to who] a couple yrs ago… although that green is tempting haha

    • All Lacquered Up says:

      I forgot about those purses. I guess because I’m not carrying the bottles as an accessory I don’t look at the bottle shape the same way. I appreciate that they wanted to make something unique. Considering how many brands there are using bottles similar to China Glaze & OPI, I like that these stand out.

  19. Nailtastic says:

    51 is probably the most awesome polish ever made. Looking forward to hear your opinion on it! Those greens look amazing too!

  20. Bonbon's says:

    After seeing this post I ordered my first NFU-Oh #569. I cannot wait!!! Thx…

  21. KatieM says:

    Of your line up I love 568. I must have 10 Nfu-oh’s and I agree with the others #52 is a must and shipping is free whether you order 1 bottle or 10+

  22. Cat says:

    My favorite color of all time is 566, a dark mossy green jelly. I also love 570, a dark teal jelly. Even though it’s dark, it’s super vibrant and looks like deep water. I think those two are must haves!

  23. Great choices. I have 12 bottles of NFU Ohs myself. I was massively disappointed with their holographic line – it chipped to no end, despite different basecoat and top coats combinations.

    Must get the Zulu dupe now.

    The flakies/glitter are superb – they last long. However, to get maximum ‘OMG HOW GORGEOUS!!!” I had to do 3 coats. – so gorgeous! – oh lord this was beautiful – But this was the showstopper…Every time I wear this I’m always complimented on it.

  24. Sara says:

    I haven’t tried these, but I want one just for the sheer gloriousness of the bottle shape.

  25. Jackie S. says:

    I had a recent Nfu-Oh Haul as well, I ordered #61, the aqua base and the cuticle remover. You absolutely have to tell me how do do with applying #61, its a bear!

  26. Jen says:

    I love my Nfu-Ohs too… in fact, I just ordered 2 more – I ordered 125 and 545 this past weekend. I currently have 61, 62 and 66, which are holos, and 52, 59, and 60 for my flakies. I also really love their Flower Oils for cuticles… 06 Rose is my fave :)

  27. Arrianne says:

    These are your first Nfu Oh polishes? It’s about time!

  28. Savannah says:

    I just got in my order yesterday. I LOVE the polishes. They are gorgeous. They kind of need to be layered to get the full effect. It’s rainbow goodness in each bottle though and it’s worth the 12.50. I will be ordering again for sure. They were SUPER fast with shipping. I got my polish two days after I ordered. They also took the time to really make sure my package was safe. The box was wrapped really well with tape. No one was getting into that box haha! And the bottle was covered in bubble wrap. GREAT service truly.

  29. dawn says:

    I absolutely love this site and all of the work that goes into it. I don’t remember how I found it but I sure am lucky to have found it.
    Of course it is costing me a fortune for my “MUST HAVES” but oh well, I’m worth it.
    Thank you for all that you do for us.
