Some black n white Nfu Oh swatches

I got my precious Nfu Ohs the other day as I told you in the previous post. And I wanted a quick way to get a glipms of the different polishes, both on a black and white background. So, I painted my nails half black, half white and layered the Nfu Ohs on top.

This is a really horrible manicure, but it's a great and fast way to get to know your new darlings.

Something that surprised me was that they are so differently pigmented. As you see on the pictures some are full of color even on a white background, and some of them are almost in a clear base. The size of the glitters and flakes are also different. The next thing that struck me is that # 50 and #54 are almost identical, eventhough they look a lot different from eachother when looking on the bottles. It's just a slight divergence in the base color.

My opinions

# 58: A bit of a disappointment. This is almost a dupe of Nubar 2010 when layered on a dark base.

#55: Actually a surprise. The one that was the least interesting in the bottle, but really awesome over black. Green glitter and orange flakies, what a hit on Halloween.

#54: Really gorgeous, duochrome flakes in green and blue in a clear base. Love it!

#53: I'm in love!! Amazing blue glitter, pink flakes in a slight blue base. Soooo beautiful!!

#51: A really pigmented purple base, whith duochrome flakes in orange and green? I think this one needs to be layered over a purple to be all that it can be.

#50: Really beautiful, but almost identical to #54, except for the pale purple base. But I really don't think it's worth to have them  both in the collection.

#45: Really breathtaking. This one on top of a red will not be for the shy one.

#83: The only one from the Glitter series. Microscopic pink, blue, and purple glitter in a sheer pale pink base. Gorgeous, but I thought it would be a bit more pigmented. This one will need to be used as a layering polish.

Which one is your favourite?

54:an är min favorit! Eller kanske 50:an då förstås. Jag älskar den där färgskiftningen och kan nästan aldrig få nog av den även om jag generellt sett har ledsnat en del på flakies för tillfället.

I like almost all Nfu Oh flakies! I would say put #58 over Red, Red-Brown, Copper shades, or even dark orange. The copper might come to life.
Of these here, my favourites are 45, 51, 55, 58. I also know 59 also looks amazing over red!

Thank you for swatching so many Nfu Ohs in one post.
