Some of the coolest polishes out there when I first got into nail polish were Nfu Ohs. They have had an awesome range of colorful flakies and holographic polishes for years now. I was always fascinated by their flakies, but it took me a few years to finally decide to crack down and get some. Nfu Oh 51 was quite a popular color, so I knew I had to get that first.
#51 over L.A. Girl Hustle
Nfu Oh 51 is a sheer purple base with with color shifting multchrome flakies.
This color is often compared to Clarins 230, because of it's similarity in color and it's color shifting abilities.. You could use this on it's own, but it is better layered. I have to be honest I really was not wowed by this. In fact, this has been sitting in my swatch folder for months because I never felt inspired to post about it.
The reason this didn't wow me is because I got it too late in the game. The Clarins 230 craze has been stifled by Max Factor Fantasy Fire and Girly Bits Shift Happens. I'm sure there are other indie polishes out there that replicate the whole Clarins 230 effect too. Also, the best flakies I've seen are right out of Cult Nails Unicorn Puke/Clairvoyant and Cult Nails Seduction. The flakies in the Nfu-Oh I found pretty weak. Meh, I've been completely spoiled by new polishes out there.
This is certainly not a bad polish. It actually is very beautiful, and I would even recommend it especially if you do not have some of the other polishes I listed above. It really is a classic in the nail polish world. I just don't know if this measures up to some of the awesome polishes we have available to us currently.
