SOTD: Koh Blue Universe

Aaannnddd a new Swatch of the Day.. I still find it remarkable how some polishbrands aren’t as popular as they should be. An example is Koh! I think in this case it’s because Koh is hardly sold outside of The Netherlands, but please correct me if I’m wrong. Koh has some amazing colors that are truely unique. One I just had to show is the flakielicious Blue Universe. Let the pictures do the talking…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please refer to the ‘bottle-picture’ for the real color. I didn’t think this color would be so hard to photograph, due to the light from outside it looks brighter blue than it is. Let me tell you that this polish is a true gem for your collection. I have never seen a color like this, a some sort of dusty blue with teeny tiny silver particles and rainbow (but mainly red/orange) flakies. Koh nailpolishes retail for €14,95 (around $19) and are available at de Bijenkorf A’dam (NL), Douglas (EU) and their website Kohcosmetics.com.

It’s 8 o’clock in the evening here and I’m going to turn on my tv and relax a bit. Tomorrow a new day, new problems, new challenges AND a new mani ;) Goodnight! ♥

Fabulous Flakies: Nfu-Oh dupe?

Hey you guys!

I hope you will be running to your local drugstore after reading my post cause this combination of polishes is really awesome. I picked up the new Essence polishes Glisten Up and Absolutely Stylish today. I already saw an amazing effect of Glisten Up on Nihrida’s blog and was thinking about what color I would use as base. I figured, why not just put it on top of Absolutely Stylish and see what comes out. So I did…and was in awe. WOW! What an amazing green?! effect it gives. Weird, since Glisten Up is totally blue! The blue is hard to capture with my camera but it has this duochrome effect, you will see blue flakies in a certain angle. Just play with the lighting.

Behold zeh beauty:

Haven’t got an Nfu-Oh yet? Too expensive? Or just blown away by the beautiful flakies you see all over the web? Here is your cheap solution to a beautiful green/blue flakie manicure of which I even dare to say it’s a sliiiigggght dupe for Nfu-Oh 52. Big difference is this combination doesn’t have the purple’ish dark-blue’ish glow like Nfu-Oh 52 but hey, for the price you paid for these two polishes I think there is no reason to complain right?!

Take care and make the most of your weekend! :-)

Nubar 2010: wow flakies!

Yesterday evening I tried out my Nubar 2010 for the first time after I received it last week.

The flakies of this polish are small and have more red/orange/yellow colors than green.
That’s what makes it special in my opinion.

I tried layering it over Catrice’s I Scream Peach! (which I totally love for the summer).

Love it? Hate it? Dunno?! Let me know ;-)

Enjoy your day..
