Review: Nfu-Oh #65, New Formula

Hello everyone =) About a month ago, my friend Zuzu, who was in the US at that time, helped me to get my hands on 4 Nfu-Oh holos. I only got 62, 64, 65 and 66, because 61 and 63 have been out of stock at the moment.
I was so excited for these, but while I was waiting for them to arrive, I read about them being less holo because of the new formula. I guess this is valid for every Nfu-Oh holo bought from Fabulous Street after January or so. They're not exactly duds like CC Revvvolution or Wild At Heart, but they're significantly less holographic then they were before. It's apparent from the bottle. The old formula showed holographic effect from the outside, but this one looks like a dull holo particle soup. Let the pictures speak for themselves:

Please ignore the fact my Sanyo loves to make the skin look overly saturated and two toned. These were the strongest photos I could capture of #65. It's still a perfectly linear, strong, amazing holo; but if you know the real deal, this is disappointing. Here is how it should look like:

Picture is courtesy of Lextard. While the new formula is still strong and linear, it's not the magical holo it was once. The old one seems to have bigger holo particles, something like an improved linear with some China Glaze Kaleidoscope goodness mixed in, without toning down the holographic effect. But I should have known: Best holo ever, in six colors, still available and not ridiculously expensive at all was too good to last.
I will still wear these, although I hate, hate the formula. It's gooey, dragging, self destroying, chiptastic, unforgiving... But once you get the hang of it, it's manageable. I suggest you to do a holo sandwich, with a coat of quick-dry topcoat between two coats, to prevent the first day chipping.
I hope this review was helpful. I wish Nfu-Oh corrected the formula as soon as possible, I would still get every color if they did. But I'm not very impressed by these. I'd prefer my OMG polishes over these any day.

Herkese merhaba =) Bir ay kadar önce canım Zuzum o sırada ABD'de olduğu için 4 Nfu-Oh holo oje almama yardımcı oldu. O sırada sadece 62, 64, 65 ve 66 no'lu hololar vardı, ben de hepsini aldım.
Bu ojeler için inanılmaz heyecanlıydım, ama ojeleri beklerken Nfu-Oh ojelerinin formülünün değiştiğini ve eski haline göre daha zayıf olduklarını okudum. Sanırım bu geçtiğimiz ocak ayından beri alınan neredeyse her Nfu-Oh oje için geçerli bir durum. Tabi CC Revvvolution ya da Wild At Heart gibi saçma sapan bir oje haline gelmediler, ama eski hallerine göre ciddi bir düşüş ve fark var. Bu durum şişeden bile belli oluyor. Eski formül holografik etkiyi şişeden bile gösterirken, bu yeni formül şişeden karmakarışık bir holo partikülü karışımı gibi gözüküyor. Resimler size daha iyi anlatacaktır.
Lütfen Sanyo kameranın cilt rengini sarı kırmızı gibi garip gösterdiğine aldırış etmeyin. Güneşte böyle olmuyor valla =P Bunlar, Nfu-Oh #65'in en iyi yakalayabildiğim resimleri. Yine lineer, yine güçlü ama; eski halini bilince inanılmaz hayal kırıklığına uğruyorsunuz. Nasıl gözükmesi gerektiğini 3. resimde görebilirsiniz.
Resim Lextard'a ait. Işık farkı ya da flaşla açıklanabilecek bir fark değil, gerçekten eski holo oje daha farklı yapıda, irili ufaklı parçacıklar içeriyor ve lineerliği bozulmazken büyük parçalar holografik etkinin daha güçlü olmasına yol açıyor. China Glaze OMG ve Kaleidoscope ojelerinin harmanlanıp sonra doping verilmiş hali gibi düşünün. Ama bilmem gerekirdi: Hem piyasadaki en iyi holo, hem 6 farklı rengi var, hem hala satışta hem de fiyatı dudak uçuklatmıyor. Bu durum fazla sürmeyecekti elbet, olabilecek en kötüsü oldu ve formülü bozuldu.
Bu ojeleri yine de süreceğim, formülünden tek kelimeyle nefret etsem de. Yapış yapış, kendi kendini ikinci katta silen, ilk gün soyulan, sürüm hatalarını affetmeyen bir ojeye sadece gerçekten değecekse katlanılabilir bence. Gerçi alışınca bir şekilde sürülüyor. Benim önerim iki kat oje arasına bir kat kurutucu sürmeniz, böylece ilk günden soyulma sorununu aşabilirsiniz.
Umarım bu yazı yardımcı olmuştur. Nfu-Oh formülünü tekrar eski haline getirsin, aynı renkleri tekrar alırım. Ama bunlar gerçekten beklediğim gibi değildi. OMG ojelerimi her şekilde tercih ederim.

  8. gözlerim kalp kalp oldu şu an. rengin, parlaklığın, holo'luğun güzelliğine bak. Ama haklısın fotoğraf makinandan dolayı mı bilmiyorum ama sanki holo etki biraz daha az:).

  11. The polish is still beautiful but it is a shame that they have changed the formula so drastically.

    Either way, it looks smashing on you. :)

  16. I didn't know they changed the formula. Lucky me I have the old ones!
    When you do a sandwich, would you reaply the aqua base again before a second coat of the holo polish??

    ReplyDelete
  17. @denizye hahaha hey Allahım ya =D
    @Beauty Addict I heard that if you use Aqua Base, you won't be needing topcoat because it prevents chipping =)
    @Dhini I just wish it was the miraculous polish before... =/

  19. I really don't see much of a difference. I wish people wouldn't buy them only to complain about them. Let others who really want them get them!
