I think that there is really nothing like it.
Oh yes, there are certainly blackened teals, Orly Chateau, Zoya Cynthia, to name two come to mind, but this one has a shimmer, which, though hard to see, is beautiful.
I put it together with Lurudana Flocado Arco Iris.
I chose this one because when you do enlarge it you can see the shimmer.
I will be honest, I am a bit biased with this one.
It's three coats here, with two coats of Arco Iris.
Here's the deal: the chemistry did not jibe at all. It would not dry. Period.
I don't know if it was just the three free versus three unfree (heck I don't know what to call it anymore!), or what, but it was not having it at all.
Much beauty in this lovely flakie. It has a more sparse formula than what I am used to, so it is a bit frustrating that I needed two coats. I will try this again on another polish, hopefully it works out. This was a polish I worked pretty hard to get, this was before international resellers were a dime a dozen.
The jury is out on Ludurana.
Back to CND NFS.
What does NFS mean? Anyone know the lore behind the name?
I decided that this polish would just look freaking black no matter how I shot it. So, I decanted some white onto a little piece of silicone from a finger protector (you can get them online, they are for offices and people who turn pages). Then I mixed white and NFS and got the following:
You can see the shimmer in the bottle, love it! Better still you can see the shimmer in the frankened version. I love the rich teal. Gorgeous.
I have too many backups of this one, sigh, but it's a favorite!
Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!
