Review & Swatches - Nfu-Oh Holographic Series: #65

Hey!

I'm almost finished with my reviews and wear tests of the Nfu-Oh Holographic Series and after tonight I'll only have #66 left to review! Today I have #65 for you which is a light powder blue linear holo.

As I mentioned in this post, we have been having really terrible weather here and for the entire 5 days that I have been sporting this mani, we haven't had a lick of sunshine. This means that unfortunately I wasn't able to get swatch photos in the sun like I have been able to for the others. I apologize for that and I'll try to get some sun pictures at a later date. I've still included a number of flash photos to demonstrate the holo effect so you still get the idea of what this will look like in the sunlight.

As I also mentioned, I added some nail art to an accent nail to spice the mani up a bit so hopefully you're all ok with that.

Onto the review!



Keep reading for swatches and the full review!

Like i told you in my review for #64, I had been having good luck with the combination of OPI Chip Skip and CND Stickey as my base products but since not everyone has these products, I wanted to try out a couple of different base coats for #65 and #66.

For this mani I used my old go-to base coat - China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat and unfortunately, I experienced the same patchy/clumpy application that I had only experienced with #61. As well, I started experiencing significant tip wear after only 1 full day of having this on, which I only experienced after at least 2-3 days when I was using OPI Chip Skip + CND Stickey. However, I didn't experience any chips in the polish with either of these base products.

Like I said above, I got 5 full days out of this mani and upon removal I still didn't have any chips in the polish but the tip wear was starting to get out of hand.

In terms of the colour, #65 is in a tight race with #61 for my favourite of the Nfu-Oh Holographic polishes (so far of course since I still have to try #66).

Nfu-Oh polishes are sold by this online retailer and they will run you $12.50 US or $13.82 CAD. #65 is currently in stock along with #'s 62, 63, 64 and #66 (which you'll be seeing a swatches/review post for in the near future).

What do you guys think of Nfu-Oh #65?

  8. Thanks everyone!

    NeutraKris: The accent nail is 100% freehand. I recently started to purchase some Konad supplies though so you might be seeing some stamping nail art from me in the future.

  11. Wow Kayla! I am typically not a light blue polish fan. But this one, who can not fall in love? Like the little bit of 'imaginary' animal on your ring finger. This is just the sliver/gray/blue shade of animal print that my eye gravitates to in picking out the few pieces of animal prints I have to wear in my closet. thanks for the test info on base coats with Nfu-Oh holos. For the $ and time, you want to be sure it comes out the very best possible.

  12. Why don't you just try the Aqua Base Coat that is constructed to use with the holo polishes?
