Pupa ~ Various polishes



Pupa ~ Various polishes
M320, M110, N219, N082
(or perhaps it’s 726, 402, 823, 33 – I’m not sure which is the number on the bottle that actually refers to the polish)

Alright – I’ve had four Pupas sitting in a box for way too long now. I decided to try them all at once and do a skittle!

Pupa polishes are generally very good polishes, I like the ones I’ve got before in various swaps!

Let me show you the four I’m doing today.

On my pinkie I’m wearing M320, a lovely shimmery denim blue. Application was easy, and it’s almost a one coater. I’m wearing two coats on this picture + topcoat:


On my ring finger I’m wearing M110. That’s a absolutely gorgeous deep purple packed with silver shimmer. Again, easy application, and I’m wearing two coats + topcoat on the picture:


On my middle finger I’m wearing N219. That’s a lilac glitter. At first I thought it was a topper, but it’s not. It’s actually almost covering in one single coat! I was amazed! Mmmmm. Two coats + topcoat on the picture:


My pointer got the holo of the bunch: N082. It’s a sky blue linear holo. I am wearing my regular basecoat, and did experience a little bit of dragging on the first coat, but the second coat evened every little irregularity out. Sweet!
Two coats, no topcoat on that one:

Here are the four pretties that can now move into my Helmer:



Overall verdict:
Pupa is a hit! The formula is great, and so it the drying time. Coverage is really good. There are only two bad things about them:
1: The size of the bottle. There’s only 5ml in a bottle, boooo!!!.
2: The brush. It’s a good thing that the brush can actually reach the bottom of the bottles, but the brush itself is sooo long, that I find it difficult to work with. Perhaps it’s just me.

So yes, there’s always room for more Pupas in my collection.
Is Pupa a brand you’re familiar with?

  6. I don't know the brand, but it looks like I should get to know it ;)
    The colors are very pretty, but N219 is my favorite I think. I have a thing for purple polishes :)
