Nfu-Oh 51 and 58 swatches

By on April 5, 2014 in Reviews , Swatches

Hi and happy Saturday!!! I have something from my holiday haul to show you today, Nfu-Oh 51 and 58 swatches. Nfu-Oh is a South Korean nail polish brand known for their extremely cute bottles and a huge selection of flakie polishes.  Unfortunately the flakie collection has now been discontinued but some are still available via ebay.

Nfu-Oh 51

51 is a duo chrome flakie and shimmer polish in a purple base. This polish looks like Clarins 230 and Essie The Shine Of The Times had the most beautiful baby in the world :) As of the formula it is quite sheer (not as sheer as Clarins 230 however) but applies well. On the swatches I am wearing two coats of 51 on top of Essie Sexy Divide. I have worn it with and without a darker base now and I actually preferred it with no base (had some VNL).

Nfu-Oh 58

58 is a flakie polish in a brown jelly base. The application of this polish was good but the colour, I hated the colour of 58. I guess brown is not my colour :P The undie I used for 58 was nice bronze coloured GlamLac polish called Peru Shine, see the swatch below :)

To my disappointment 58 did not flatter Peru shine and pretty much hid it’s beauty :/

58 was easy to apply and the flakies looked beautiful, the base however- not my cup of tea :/ Compared with the finish of 51 it has similar duo chrome flakes (not as intense colour wise) but no shimmer in the base.

Overall I can say that I pretty much loved everything about Nfu-Oh 51 and mostly hated 58 :P Let me know what do you think, am I being too harsh on 58? Thanks for reading and take care!!! xoxox

I love both of these! If anything I like 58 best – but I love brown polishes anyway.

I have 51 and it’s one of my all time favourites. I don’t have 58 but I have 59, which is a red version and, imo anyway, less nice than either of these. Now you’re making me want to put 51 on, lol!

I think both polishes look really nice! But 51 just looks amazing – I love the colours in that polish, and I’m also not a big fan of brown polishes. I think 51 is maybe just too pretty and has so many different colours, that 58 just automatically seems less pretty because it doesn’t have the crazy colour shifts of 51 :)

These both look great! 51 is stunning and to say you don’t like 58 it really suits you! :)

I really like 58! I’m not sure why but it actually reminds me of Winter sitting by the fire :p it must be the colour because it looks fire-like! I’d say I like 51 more because it’s super pretty and feels like there’s loads going on, but I wouldn’t rule out 58 :D x
