China Glaze - TTYL and Nfu Oh - 63

APPLICATION: Tricky, especially with the Nfu Oh. You have to apply these without going over the same area twice otherwise you risk getting bald patches on the nail.
COATS: 2 of each
TOPCOAT?: Yes, in all but the first two photos.
SOURCE: China Glaze:Victoria Nail Supply, Nfu Oh: fabuloustreet
COMMENTS: I realized I have been seriously neglecting the holographic polishes in my collection and so decided to enjoy these over the weekend. Once again, I think I prefer scattered holo to superfine linear holo. The latter are just so dull when there isn't lots of light bouncing off them, which is  most of the time. I added some glitter on the tips to liven this mani up indoors.


Um, excuse me, where's my holo? This is what it looks like most of the time:

  1. Love it with the glitter!
    I'm glad you mentioned how it looks most of the time. I have never thought of holos like that until now and I'm glad you brought it to my attention.

  5. I gotta be honest, while I can see how pretty holos are, I really don't get the hype. Like, I don't understand why people are so upset that there aren't any "true" holos anymore. I guess it's because these came out before I was really interested in nail polish again so I missed the fad or something. I don't know. It looks so pretty, but I just don't get it the hysteria.

    This posts reminds me that I need to get some more Nfu Ohs.

  7. I love linear holos and need to start wearing them. This one is very pretty on you. Too bad it's not so holo in doors.

  10. I agree, the scattered holos are beautiful indoors and outdoors :);) More fun! But the linears top all when you go in the sunshine...LOL! :):)

  11. Love the glittery addition. That is the one thing that always kicks my butt about the Nfu Oh's also - its so easy to get bald spots. :P Beautiful!

  12. Yeah, I remember you saying you preferred scattered holos before. I don't own any so I didn't know they look like that in the shade. ._. That kind of takes some air out of my lemming balloon. Fine, I'll get over my disappointment, eventually. :P
