I nabbed some awesome Nfu Oh polishes for only $2 during the Vivid Nails clearance sale a month or two back. These are #123 and #124. This was two coats, but I could have got a better richness in colour if I had done three.
Here are the bottle pics, #123 on the left, #124 on the right.
Then I thought I would try another polish layered over the top. This is #83.
One coat of #83 over each of #123 on index and ring and #124 on middle and pinky.
Up close to see the shimmer. I think this polish would franken into something darker very nicely. And for only $2 I'll happily try that out.
Then I wanted to layer a bit more. So out came flaky #54.
A coat of #54 layered over #83 over #123 on index and ring and #124 on middle and pinky. In the full sun.
Same in the shade. I think flaky polishes look way better indoors or in the shade, rather than full sun.
Finally up close.
So, with base coat, two coats of #123 or #124, then one of #83, then one of #54 the top coat = 6 coats. Excessive? maybe. Pretty? definitely.
