365 of Untrieds is my personal challenge to weed through the polishes in the ALU stash that I’ve been wanting to try but just haven’t gotten around to.
Naturally that had me revisiting my Nfu Oh stash which contains at least 5 untried colors. What started out as a simple creme manicure with Nfu Oh 570 ended up becoming a full on sparkle-gasm involving Nfu Oh 52. Keep reading to find out why.

Initially there wasn’t going to be a Day 7 in my NYFW NOTD Challenge. Even though I was in NYC for seven days I purposely didn’t schedule any shows or meetings for the last day so I could wander the city. Every time I go to NYC for blog business I pack my schedule so full I never have time to just explore and I made sure to leave time for that on this trip.
Then I got a call from my pal, Celebrity Manicurist Elle, on Day 6 inviting me to come visit her on a photo shoot. You don’t have to ask me twice. Naturally I was curious to check out her kit and see what she brings to a shoot. While I was there, Elle offered to give me a manicure and I couldn’t pass that up. When she started dragging out her Nfu Ohs and playing with different layering combos I knew I was in for something fun. Check it!
What a weekend! I think I’m still recovering from a wine induced coma. The Vintage Ohio wine festival took place over the weekend and The BF and I hopped in a van with the neighbors to take part in an all day sampling of Ohio wines.
We’ve been going to this festival for the past 11 years and even though we’re there for the wine I still come home every year with a bag of kettle corn the size of a small child. Popcorn is my one true food vice and kettle corn is my Achilles heel.
Anyway, I thought since I would be outside in the sun all day on Saturday, it was an excellent excuse for Nfu Oh Flakies!! I started a wear test using #568 (pictured left) & #56 (pictured right) last Monday but I anticipated having to take it off by Saturday. To my surprise it still looked so fantastic I only had to paint my swatching hand to match. Check it!
You guys, I’ve reached holographic nail nirvana thanks to Nfu Oh!
As you may remember I received my first Nfu Oh haul a few weeks back and I’ve been dying to wear the holo, #61, but had to wait until the Aqua Base came back in stock. Well my second order arrived on Thursday so naturally my weekend manicure choice was Nuf Oh 61!
I wasn’t sure what to expect based on the polish’s bland appearance in the bottle but on the nail, this baby can give Hologram Minx a run for its money. Ever since Beyonce rocked golden holographic Minx at the Grammy Awards fanatics have been trying to replicate the look. Well, consider #61 the silver version of those nails at a fraction of the cost.
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 FabulouStreet.com 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!
