Nfu-Oh # 119 & #51

Featured Colors:
  • Nfu-Oh_#119 (Navy Blue)
  • Nfu-Oh_#51 ("Flakies")
Design:
  • #51 is one of my favorite polishes. Alone it isn't that exciting, but when layered can transform any polish.  The flakiness creates different colors when you move your nails and look at them at different angles. #119 brings out the blue and purple of #51.
