Review & Swatches - Nfu-Oh Holographic Series: #62

Hey guys!

I thought I should let you all know that I had a good nail polish shopping day yesterday! My beauty supply store still doesn't have the OPI Nice Stems Collection so I'm going to have to keep stalking it.
However, I dropped into another store looking for just one polish for a friend and I was pleasantly surprised to see that they had the entire China Glaze Metro Collection! That managed to itch my new-nail-polish-collection-bug so I was very pleased and you can expect to see swatches of those asap.

In the meantime, I'm still continuing with my review, swatches and wear tests of the Nfu-Oh Holographic Series polishes and today I'll be showing you #62, which is a warm peach-pink linear holo.



Keep reading for the swatches and full review!

As per several reader suggestions in my #61 review/swatch post, I applied #62 without any base coat to see if that would help with the unfortunate application. Indeed, application was slightly less difficult and I didn't experience the same clumping of the polish that I did with #61 when I used a base coat.

However, by neglecting to use a base coat, I reduced the wear time of this polish by at least a couple of days. With #61, I got a full 4 days of wear and I even said that I thought I would be able to get at least another full day without any chips. On the other hand, with #62, I only got a full 2 days of wear and I experienced major tip wear and 2 small chips on my right hand.

For this reason, when I applied #63 last night, I went back to using a base coat and I'm just going to continue being extra careful with my application of these polishes. For me, I would prefer to get a few extra days of wear out of my mani than to have a slightly better application process.

Now, to talk about the actual shade of this polish. While it is really pretty and once again I've caught myself staring at my nails a number of times, I think this colour is just a little too warm for my skin colour. I think this would look much more awesome on someone who has a darker complexion or even a good tan. Maybe I'll start going out in the sun a little more and then try this shade again.

Nfu-Oh polishes are sold by this online retailer and they will run you $12.50 US or $13.82 CAD. #62 is currently in stock along with #'s 63-66, all of which you'll be seeing swatches/reviews for from me in the near future.

What do you guys think about Nfu-Oh #62?

  3. Bonita! You caught some great holo shots on #62 here as well. I did not think I liked this from the bottle shot - but loving it now with the swatches! Jealous this is not in my stash. I suggest you just go on eBay and get the Stems collection. There is one seller who is doing the entire collection for I think it was $23 and decent shipping! You need to get it so you can wear them now in the hot weather. But meanwhile, my Sally's has zero idea when to expect their supply of the Metro collection to arrive.

  4. I seal just the tips with top coat for my holo polishes. They last longer and they don't mess up the holo effect.
