Probably the Most Amazing Nail Polish on Earth: Nfu Oh – 51

Every once in a while I find a polish, so incredible, so… magical, that it rekindles my love affair with this hobby. Nfu Oh 51 is just such a color.

Behold, probably the most amazing nail polish on Earth:



I’m not even sure how to begin describing this color. It’s in the same family of colors as Clarins 230. Actually, 51 has been helping quench 230 lemmings for a while now, it’s probably the closest thing you can easily purchase on the market right now. It’s by no means a dupe, not even close (51 is a deeper purple than 230 and has multichromatic flakies which 230 does not), but it will definitely help the pains of a bad lemming.


This swatch is 4 coats, but I could have gotten away with 3. 51 has a reddish purple jelly-like base color, but the polish flashes dark purple, blue, green and magic, yes, magic. It’s like an explosion of color, literally. The shimmer is mostly fiery but in some angles it flashes green or a gorgeous blue sheen. This image is a little off in terms of the base color, it’s more reddish purple, sort of like a tyrian purple. You can see the multichrome flakies in action below.


I’m fairly new to Nfu Oh, but so far I’m impressed. Their color range is nothing short of outstanding. They have every color under the sun in creme (which means the world to me since I’m not a fan of shimmers) and tons of high intensity holographics. My love for their bottle design is seriously unparalleled. I just cannot imagine a cooler bottle design than a corset top ball gown shape.

Right now Nfu Oh is only available from one source: Fear not, the seller is flexible, reliable, and friendly.

    Wow is all I can say right off the bat! Love those colors. Glad to hear that they have lots of cremes. I do love shimmers and glitters. Hell, I love all polishes and all colors. Well not a fan of see thru finishes. But I found from reading all of these nail blogs to layer over black or white. I guess just experiment. I have to thank all bloggers for their beautiful pictures, ideas and my collection of polishes.

    Haha, there are 2 Lucys who love nail polish!

    I’m new to the whole nail polish game (maybe 1 or 2 months?) so thank you for all your incredible posts! I’ve learned so much from blogs it’s insane. :)

    I found the color chart for NFU colors — that website isn’t the greatest for browsing. However, of course, colors are sometimes a little different than pictured… Still it helps! Appears that Nfu-oh is a Korean brand, but made in France.

    And the brand’s website:

    This is absolutely gorgeous. :D I’d love to see this in real life! Just wondering, did you use a top coat for these pictures or is it really that shiny on its own?

  5. Kyosuke Says:

    A polish is nothing if not worn on pretty nails. Your nails’ shape is really gorgeous, they are such a wonder, that’s how the polish looks so good !

    In the end, I’m not a big fan of this color, I can’t even say why, but it’s definitely lovely on you <3

  6. Pretty Brown Girl Says:

    Your nails are gorgeous. I love the shape! This is a beautiful color. I really have a thing for purples and those glitter flecks make it even better.

    Great post!

  10. Alexlyndra Says:

    Oh gosh, I NEED one this polish! It’s absolutely amazing!

  11. Veronica Says:

    Its really wonderful and the bottles are so pretty. The only bad thing is that is really difficult to remove- but thats a downside I can live with ;-)

  12. Brooke Says:

    Now this is a polish I can fall in love with! :) And luckily I do own this one already – yes!! I have not tried this one on it’s own though, I think I painted it over purple. But wow, this is really pretty all on it’s own.

    LMAO at it flashing magic :)

  13. Ju Says:

    OMG ! This is so beautiful !
    Can you write the ingredients on this polish (or a picture of the label’s ingredients) ? Thank you :D

  14. Catie Says:

    I wonder if difficult removal is common with these glitters? I just removed one of the RBL glitters and I had to use acetone remover, and it still took me almost an hour to get it all off! TOTALLY worth it, tho.

    But I have a mission – and a new blog to visit :) Thanks!

  33. Sylvia Says:

  34. Sylvia Says:

    Oh! BTW, I used China Glaze coconut Kiss (1 coat)then I used two coats of #51…I got such a lovely result!

  35. Debby Says:

    Do you recall a JC Penny exclusive called Stop Wine ing? I got it back in 99-01 and it was a beautiful true duochrome. It was like a burned red when I looked at them and when people looked at them from their view they were a golden color. I can’t even describe it.
