Nfu Oh 61 Nail Varnish
I have rambled before about how much I love Nfu-oh nail varnishes. They do beautiful flakies and holo polishes that amaze me every time I look at my nails. So I couldn’t wait to get my paws on #61, their silver based holo polish. I have seen so many swatches of it…and I couldn’t be more disappointed.
I have since read some reviews that say that the newest batch of polishes have been altered when it comes to the formula. They must have because the polish I received was nothing like the swatches I’ve seen.
It looks plain silver in most lights, these pictures actually make it look more holographic than it does in person. Whenever I looked at it, it just made me sad. Although I did feel slightly like Lady Deathstrike from X-Men, so that was fun.
TL;DR – I don’t like this nail varnish. Nfu-oh, why have you forsaken me?! /drama
EDIT: The weird line across the nail on the tip of my little finger? Where this nail varnish chipped after 24 hours. With Seche Vite on. This nail varnish was a huge disappointment all round! Booo!
You can buy this polish HERE.
What has been cheering me up this week? This Ice Cream Nail Art Manicure. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Ice Cream Nail Art Manicure
When I was thinking about what nail art to do, I decided on pretty, pastel ice creams to match the lovely weather we’ve been having in London. I have wanted to do these for ages, but they don’t really work on squoval nails. These rounded nails are so much fun, I wish I’d changed them up ages ago!
I used a few different Seventeen nail varnishes in this manicure for the pastels, and used a Barry M shade for the brown cone colour.
What do you think to this super sweet manicure?
I made some lobster-themed nails for the lovely lady behind Rogue Lobster jewellery (Check her out here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/RogueLobsterShop). So fun!
I had such an overwhelming response to my recent gradients blogs posts and I had a lot of questions asking how I do them, so I decided to do a little tutorial for you.
We’ve all seen the beautiful Ciaté Caviar manicure sets advertised. They are set to be the ‘newest’ trend in nail art…if you can get your hands on a set. I am impatient and didn’t want to wait a month for them to come back in stock! (I say ‘newest’ because this nail art technique was around long before Ciaté claimed to have invented it. They’ve had some criticism in the nail blogging community as they’ve apparently been contacting bloggers telling them they can’t use the name ‘Caviar’ as they invented it? Pssssh)
So, I went to a craft shop, bought these beads and just did it myself. Quite fiddly but sooooo pretty. Also, the Ciaté bottles cost £18…my pot cost 40p! Bargain. You can buy them online HERE – I’d recommend looking around on that website as well. You will find any nail art supplies you could ever need: brushes, glue, 3D bits and pieces… everything!
