Nfu Oh 63 and Holographic Domo Awesomeness

Okay, before I get to the good stuff, let me show you some other good stuff. I wanted to show you Essie's Too Too Hot. Not terribly fond of the name, absolutely love the colour. It's a wonderfully squishy and glossy looking jelly/creme red. It's a red I can wholeheartedly love. And I'm wearing it on my toes right now. Don't worry though, I know some are squeamish about toe pictures, so I swatched it on my fingers for you! This is two coats of Essie's Too Too Hot.

Now, onto the holo goodness. In my experience, Nfu Oh produces the most amazing linear (as opposed to a more "scattered" holographic sparkle) polishes available. They can be a pain to apply, so I'd recommend waiting a long time between coats of polish otherwise you'll just end up with bald patches. Without further ado, this is Nfu Oh 63, and beautiful pink/lavender holographic masterpiece:

That was 3 coats of Nfu Oh 63, no topcoat, in direct sunlight. This is how Nfu Oh 63 looks in normal indoor lighting:

And two more pictures of Nfu Oh 63, in sunlight, but this time with topcoat:

While I've heard some say that topcoat will dampen the holographic effect, I couldn't detect that it did. And the two pictures with topcoat look just as holographic to me as the ones without. What do you think?

Well, that's all for today's post... but wait, what's this?

It's a holographic sparkle Domo! And it turns out that he likes holographic lacquer, too!

                                              "Why hello there, ladies!"

It turns out that Sparkle Domo loves Nfu Oh holographic polishes. And who can blame Domo? They do have the prettiest bottles.

                    "Well, all right, OPI and China Glaze holos can come too! Yay!"

                                            "All hail the Domo overlord!" 


  1. Domo, the ruler and protector of polishes - I simply love him :)
    And OH MY GOSH, that Nfu Oh 63 is soooooo gorgeous, yummmmmiiiii
    I never experienced that a top coat dampen the holo, on the contrary I find it enhances it :)

  2. I'm glad you like Domo, ruler of all nail polishes. ;) And I agree with you- in the pictures above, it seems like the pictures with top coat are at least as holographic, if not more so, than the ones without top coat.

    Isn't the Nfu Oh amazing? I love holographics! I'm thinking of doing a skittles manicure with the China Glaze holos for my next manicure.

  3. I just gotta say, Domo is an excellent addition to the lacquer blogosphere. I think he should probably make moar appearances!!

    And I'm glad he decided not to eat the polish. :)

    1. Glad you enjoyed it! I have a feeling Domo will be making more appearances. Stay tuned, okay? ;)

  4. That Nfu Oh is simply gorgeous! I have #61 which is more of a white silver. I love it with the pink tinge.

    1. I really enjoy the pink tinge, too- somehow it seems softer and more natural, even though it's still crazy holographic. I wish I had Nfu Oh #61, but the only other Nfu Oh holo I have is the blue tinged one. I think it's #65.

      Thank you for taking the time to comment! I appreciate it. And I checked out your blog- you have some great pictures and awesome stamping going on. I'll add you to my blog list. Can't wait to see more of your posts!
