Here is the REAL Nfu Oh 51. I'm putting it at the beginning to show you a beautiful pic because my pics suck. This is from The Polish Addict, a lovely blog, and I'm giving full credit.
Now for my own pics, for which I don't particularly want to take credit, but what are you gonna do. I'm a NUBE.
I created my own Nfu Oh 51. Sorta. I layered stuff and it happened accidentally, but I think I'm on to something. Check this out.
I know, awful picture. Let me see if I can get this other camera to work and then I'll tell you how I did this and show you a pic of the real thing.
Naturally, I don't OWN the real thing!! I'm lemming it for sure. Scrangie has a nice pic and I think if I give her credit, she wouldn't mind me posting it. I give Scrangie all the credit in the world!! Couldn't find one I could download, but check out her blog, it's really good.
Clearer, but still very bad. Especially that carpet. Whew.
Instead of frankening by mixing everything, I layered and stacked things up. I used four polishes, Brucci Blue Sapphire, Pure Ice Cheatin, a Bon Bons bar glitter (do these have names?) and OPI That's All Bright With Me.
The Brucchi is a brand I find in Tilton Beauty Supply (The South Jersey (better) version of Sally Beauty) and it's a very dark blue shimmer. The Pure Ice is a thick blue and pink glitter, but takes a few coats to build up, so there are two coats of that. Then two coats of the Bon Bons, which is a strongly hot pink and blue bar glitter (found Pure Ice and Bon Bon at Walmart) and just a strip of the OPI in the middle of the nail creates the yellowish center. I think I'd prefer a gold glitter for that though, so I'll be on the lookout. I don't actually have a gold glitter although I saw a nice one in Walmart yesterday. That's All Bright With Me is a bright yellow sheer shimmer. (I need to return that Hannah Montana bracelet anyway lol what was I thinking? I'm 40 years old)
I'm going to add pics to my previous blogs where I was complaining about not having the pics, so feel free to read my dearth of archives! I think there are four.
Thanks for reading!!
