I so, so nearly called this post frustration from FNUG but I didn't think that it was altogether fair. I've become a bit of a fan of this Danish nail brand over the last 12 months or so, so for one of November's My Pure reviews I thought that I'd review one of their more festive, appropriate polishes
Chictopia Nail Polish by FNUG is one of the most beautiful colours that I've seen in a long time, but it's also one of the most frustrating polishes that I've ever used.
I have no issue with the formulation but arghhhhh when it comes to photographing it this colour has nearly driven me up the wall. It's beyond beautiful, it a gorgeous metallic, shimmery, pink, red which is shot through with loads and loads of ultra fine, glittery gold sparkle.
Try as I might though I just can't do this justice, you can see the pink and red tones in these pictures but the gold glitter that gives it an almost bronzed, glitter look in certain lights can barely be seen :(
Thankfully though the formulation was first class. This 3 free polish, which is crammed full of vitamins and caviar extract was a little bit thick but it applied smoothly and dried quickly. With careful application you could probably get away with one coat but this as per usual is two. Unlike a lot of glitters this one has a smooth glossy finish and it's pretty easy to remove.
My pictures really are a bit of a fail so I've recorded a tiny bit of footage so you can see the colour change and hopefully you can see a bit more of the gold sparkle effect.
It's so annoying when things look better in real life but if you really want to see how gorgeous this colour is, then all I can suggest is that you buy it and try it for yourself ;) It's a lovely colour for the festive and party season, It's a little bit different from the classic red and the gold sparkle just takes it to another level. This shade also looks amazing with rose gold so if your a fan of this on trend metal then either pick up a bottle for yourself and leave a little note for Santa and you never know x FNUG Nail Polish in Chictopia retails at £12 for an 8.5ml bottle from My Pure x Thanks for reading and if you have any comments please let me know xx
