Adorned Nails: KOH Bronzation



It's been a long time since I wore a KOH nail polish, so here's something I'm wearing this week, one that I bought some months back: Bronzation. It's a metallic foil and very appropriately bronze, of course. I've got two coats on here. The finish was expectedly gritty, so a top coat was needed.

At a distance, it looks like just a plain foil polish.


It's another story upclose. The photo below shows the difference in how Bronzation looks in the shade (nail on the left) and in sunlight (nail on the right).


Bronzation has irregular-shaped flakies that are light copper or dull apple green in colour, depending on how they catch the light. Sometimes, you'll also see some flashing bright green, aqua and blue. Bronzation is like chaotic opulence.



I hope this isn't photo overload. I just couldn't resist taking a picture of Bronzation with my little bronze singing bowl.



For more on the singing bowl, please see the Good Vibrations From A Singing Bowl post at Witoxichic.

@London's-beauty
Thanks, my dear. But I beg to differ! In real life and from afar, the polish doesn't look to flashy, so it can go with many outfits. :)

@Appu
Hi, Appu! Yeah, the name has a certain appealing ring to it - the word 'bronzing' made cooler! :D

@BlackCherry
You're right, BlackCherry, the flakies do give the polish some extra oomph. :)

@Michelle
I'm glad you like it! :)

@Nicole
Hi, Nicole! I'm pleased you like Bronzation and am even more chuffed that you like the photos! Thanks so much! :D

@Raey
Yay to bronze gift wrapping! And oh, I'm so pleased you like the extra final photo. Hee hee! :D

@KTee

I'm quite fond of this shade. Could it be a dupe for OPI Shim-Merry Chic from Holiday 2009? I think so! Do you have it to compare?

It's such a gorgeous shade! Love how it looks depending the light :D

@Elizabeth
You're quite right. There are many similarities to Shim-merry Chic - the bronze and the flakies. It's a possible dupe. :)

@Dina
I'm so pleased! :)
