Muted green translucent jelly. Duochrome predominantly green with blue flash opalescent glitter flakes. I adore this - beautiful by itself, amazing layered over greens and blues. Incredible over black also. Can be difficult to remove, but that is the case with most glitter polishes. Dry time is a little above average, so it requires a fast dry topcoat to prevent smudging.

Wow, what a stunner! NFU Oh's #56 is an amazing mix of large and small iridescent particles that shine the most amazing emerald green and even teal and blue in some lights. I've only just tried this over black so far, but one layer gives a seriously pretty green with hints of blue and another layer brings out even more of the blue/teal. These are really mesmerizing and should carry the warning "Do not operate heavy machinery or drive vehicles while wearing." Dangerous stuff when the sun is out. You're likely to not watch where you're going or what you're doing... People will grab your hands and gasp "What IS that??" (Two of my co-workers did just that). Also, highly addictive. I want them all now.
Just need to add that I did not have a chipping problem with this NFU Oh. I had one coat Barielle Growth Activator for Natural Nails as a base, one coat Nutra Nail Strengthener, 2 coats Orly Liquid Vinyl and one coat Oh So Wet! Then I had decided to add the NFU Oh and put another coat of Oh So Wet! over that. It's been 3 days and no chips at all (even after moving furniture and hitting the gym). I thought this info would help. :P

This polish is absolutely amazing. In the bottle the base color is a dark green with green microglitter and iridescent flakes that also flash blue and teal depending on the light. I'd call it a mix of NYX's Las Vegas, Sinful's Show Me The Way and flashes of Nubar's Peacock Feathers with iridescent flakes like CND's Limelight. It's truly amazing. Although there are lots of flakes within the polish they aren't very thick so there's no trouble getting them to lay flat. Even without a topcoat you can run your finger over your nail and you probably wouldn't know they're there.
The color isn't very saturated so it would take at least 3 or 4 coats to get decent coverage if worn alone. However I've been experimenting by layering it over practically every polish I own and have found it looks amazing over dark greens, blues and especially over black. Just fabulous.
I got mine in a swap but have since purchased other colors by this brand and have found them to be somewhat expensive . But at 17ml the bottle is bigger than any other brands out there and plus it's such a cute shape! Not to mention that this color is totally unique and unlike any I've ever seen. I would definitely repurchase and I can't wait to try other colors by this brand. I can't rave about it enough.
Update: After wearing this and other NFUs I wanted to come back and report on wear. Every time I've worn this polish I've used my regular combo of products: SH Nail Quencher basecoat and on top of the color a layer of Colorstay and then SV. This combo has always worked well to prevent chips and tipwear. However, this combo doesn't work with the NFUs. After only a few hours I have tipwear on all 10 nails. It's a little annoying but not enough to keep me from wearing and purchasing these awesome polishes.
Here are a few pics of it layered over black.
