Review & Swatches - Nfu-Oh Holographic Series: #63

Hey!

I hope you all had a good weekend. As I said a few posts ago, my boyfriend and I had a Harry Potter movie marathon planned and that took up a lot of my weekend.
I also had to start writing a paper that I have due this week because although it might not seem like it based on the amount of posting I've been able to do, I'm actually still in school this summer! However I'm only doing 1 course so it hasn't been taking up too much of my time.

Anyways, today I'll be continuing with my reviews, swatches and wear tests of the Nfu-Oh Holographic Series of polishes and I'll be showing you #63, which is a light pink linear holo.



Keep reading for the swatches and full review!

So as I said in my post for #62, I returned to using a base coat this time so that I could extend the wear time of #63. I used the same products that I used when I applied #61, which is a combination of OPI Chip Skip and CND Stickey (I'll have individual reviews of both of these products after I've had more time with them).

With #61 this combination didn't seem to help too much with the application and I still had some issues. However, with #63, I didn't have any problems at all and so I'm wondering now if it's just #61 in particular that caused the patchy/clumpy application. I'll be able to determine this for sure after I've tried the last 3 shades using these same products.

With the wear of #63, I once again got a full 4 days out of my manicure and when I removed this last night I only had tip wear and no chips. I probably could have gotten another day out of my #63 mani but tip wear is enough to make me remove a mani.

I've said it many times but I'll say it again - I'm not much of a pink polish girl. However, I'm really in love with this polish. I know I've said it about the other 2 shades I've already reviewed but I've caught myself just moving my nails around and staring at them many times with this polish on. One of my favourite things about this polish is that when it's in the shade it's still an absolutely lovely colour. So although the holo effect is dulled in the shade, it still looks really pretty.

Nfu-Oh polishes are sold by this online retailer and they will run you $12.50 US or $13.82 CAD. #63 is currently in stock along with #62 (which I've already reviewed) and #'s 64-66 (which you'll be seeing swatches/reviews for from me in the near future).

What do you guys think of Nfu-Oh #63?

  7. So glad you posted this. I did not like this color as shown at NFU-Oh's website, but seeing it from your swatch made me decide to get it.

    Also these bottles are gorgeous by themselves. :)

  8. Hi! Ok..so I'm over a year late on this, but like you I also bought NFu's holo's from Fab St! At that time they did NOT have the Aqua base but I went ahead and got them anyway AND (sigh) forked over 45.00 (yeah...sigh) on a bottle of Aqua Base on ebay. I was on waitlist for the AB with FS but I just couldn't wait. I was VERY disappointed with the whole NFu experience! The aqua base is VERY DIFFICULT TO WORK WITH..I don't know maybe its ME..but it BUBBLES HORRIBLY..which makes the whole holo effect nasty! I thought maybe I got ripped off on ebay with a knock off and about a month later got my (yeah..bought 4 bottles of AB)..well..the ebay one was NOT a knockoff because I had the SAME PROBLEM! I'm sort of sorry I bought they. I don't know, maybe its me, I do live in Florida and it is VERY HUMID HERE and I was doing my nails in the summer when the humidity was peak. I'm trying again as the humidity is much "less" right now. Maybe the results will be different. FYI..after my bad holo experience with NFu, I bought a TON of Glitter Gal Holo's..NO AQUA BASE NEEDED and it goes on sooo much better AND the colors are very similar. Don't know what I'm going to do with this gallon (haha) of AB....BUT, I'm determined to try and make it work (for now)...Thanks for your review too..I thought it was ME!
