From The Vault: The Polish Every Turkish Girl Knows About

I don't know if there's such a famous shade in the US, but almost every girl in my country, if interested in nail polish or not, knows about this shade. It's very, very popular and it's the top selling polish in Turkey, I believe.
Flor Mar #319 is an off-white, sheer polish, designed to be used as a French manicure base. But it easily becomes opaque in 3 coats. It looks great with many skintones, and provides a neat, clean, freshly manicured look. We also call this color "Raki White" here. (Raki is the traditional alcoholic Turkish drink. For more info, click here.)


This color is a life saver. It's professional, it can be used if you don't know what to put on for some occasion, it can be used as a French base. It's one shade that should always be kept in one's purse. =)

ABD'de böylesine meşhur, herkesin bildiği bir renk var mı bilmiyorum ama, burada oje süren sürmeyen her kızın bildiği renk herhalde budur. Hatta Türkiye'de en çok satılan oje olduğunu tahmin ediyorum, mağazalarda raflar dolusu stoklandığını gördükçe.
Flor Mar #319, kırık beyaz, saydam yapılı bir oje. Aslında Fransız manikürlerinin favorisi olsa da, üç katta kolaylıkla opak oluyor. Birçok tende harika duruyor bu oje ve tırnağı temiz, bakımlı, yeni manikür yapılmış gibi gösteriyor. Aynı zamanda "Rakı Beyazı" diye de geçiyor.
Bu oje tam bir kurtarıcı. Özel bir yere mi gideceksin? Ne süreceğine mi karar veremedin? Tırnakların berbat durumda mı? İş görüşmen mi var? Sür ve çık. Bu oje makyaj çantasına atılıp her yere taşınması gereken ojelerden.

  22. Wow, it looks so clean and pretty! My nails are pretty yellow though..thankfully I switched basecoats and noticed my nails are growing in whiter.

    ReplyDelete
  23. @Serena, this type of polish hides the yellowness because it's white when sheer =) When my nails are yellow I use sheer white on top of basecoat and it masks the yellow perfectly!

  36. my its a stupid question but whats relation with the drink(raki) besides the name?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Haha, it's so cool that there's a shade that's so well-known in the whole country :D and that it even has its own nickname!

    (Our rakija, that takes its name from the Turkish raki is, conversely, a transparent and colourless of faintly yellow drink :) .)

    A lovely shade, one must admit.
