Nfu Oh. I am told that it's pronounced "En foo oh". :)
I've been fascinated by the brand for a long time. I've seen such beautiful swatches of the various colours and effects it comes in, and the bottle alone is stunning! I knew that I needed a couple of Nfu Oh's in my collection.
Trouble is, that Denmark is not the best country to live in when it comes to nail polishes. What we have is *very* expensive (compared to what I see you pay for polishes in other countries), and the range of brands is limited. So most of my nail polish shopping is done on online. Next problem is import taxes. If I want to avoid big taxes then I have to shop from a country within the EU. I see what you guys can buy from US sites, and I tell you that I am envious! :D
Enough about that, I actually managed to find Nfu Oh on a German site, and I decided not to limit myself. I just bought the ones I found pretty, and here's the stash:
The bottles are just gorgeous. I love the way they're shaped. So elegant and pretty. And the colours are stunning! I'm totally in love! <3
A bad thing happened though. When I opened number 61, it was all lumpy and thick and the holo effect was non existent. It was obviously a bad or old bottle of polish. Totally unusable. I took pictures of it - take a look:
I sent the pics to the website owner and asked if they wanted me to return the bottle, or if they would just send me a new one. Imagine my surprise when they refused to send me a replacement one, or any refund. They said that the reason why the bottle of polish was reduced in price was because it wasn't the same quality as Nfu Oh usually are, and that they specifically had been writing that on their website.
I must admit that I hadn't seen that on their website. Whether it's because it wasn't there when I shopped or because I just didn't notice is irrelevant to me. Fact is that I received a nail polish that is unusable. Reduced quality (or whatever we call it) can possibly be OK, but totally unusable is definitely not OK.
So I won't bother trying any more to get them to send a new bottle of polish or a refund, despite the fact that I'm pretty sure that they would ultimately have to, according to consumer protection laws. I'll just send them a link to this blogpost, and then warn you all against shopping for anything at all on this site: www.glamournails24.de. It seems unlikely that you will get what you pay for, if you do. And no one likes to be cheated, right?
Thanks for your time.
