Adorned Nails: KOH Bohemian Chic


More KOH! There'll be quite a few posts on KOH this week as I go through the KOH Vintage Jeans collection.


KOH Bohemian Chic is the third one to be featured. Just like the previous two, KOH Rock Chick and KOH Romantic Flair, this one's a crème as well. The formula is nice and creamy, and it went on smoothly. As usual, I did two coats.

Bohemian Chic is a slate blue, sometimes I think it looks more grey than blue.


I wanted to add some simple nail art to this. I took out KOH Matt which I haven't used for quite a while and applied a thick band on the nail tips (I just painted it in one or two sure strokes across the nail).


Initially, I thought of leaving it at that - thick, matt French tips - but I felt that it was missing something.


So, I chose this stamping design from the Chez Delaney plate B100 and stamped it in line with the border of the matt tips using the baby blue of Romantic Flair. Do note though that this baby blue is not meant as a stamping polish, so don't expect the stamped design to appear bright and vivid on the nails.

The final result is a somewhat subtle nail design on matt French tips. You know that I like subtlety.


This polish was kindly provided by KOH Cosmetics.

It's a gorgeous color! More grey than blue. Your mani is awesome hun! I have to try something like that myself. "KTee"xx

Heel goed verzonnen dat design op je nagels en leuke artikelen met al die jeans stoffen. De kleur van de lak is ook mooi (het is een kleur die makkelijk te combineren is met je kleding). Groetjes

I love dusty colors, this one is no exception. Can't wait to get my hands om this collection ;-)

MissDoll said...

I love this color Bohemian Chic (also the name is cute) and I didn't thought you can make it better but those 'french' tips are stunning. Where do you get such cool ideas?

Witoxicity said...

@KTee
Thank you, my dear. Good, do give this mani a shot! It's not at all difficult to do. :)

@Nikki
Dank je, Nikki! Ja, deze grijs blauwe lak is neutraal en kan daarom bij veel kleding kleuren gedragen worden. :)

@Marionne
Same here. I like murky shades too. :)

@MissDoll
Yay! Thanks so much, MissDoll! Usually, the ideas come to me on the spur of the moment, when I'm staring at the polish already on my nails. Haha! No, I'm serious. :)

I like this shade on its own, but what you did with the matte french tips and nail art design is really awesome. The coolest french tips I have ever seen. I totally love your last photo. Stunning! Take care, Nicole x
