Adorned Nails: KOH Grungy Touch



Hmm, I may be speaking too soon but this could be my favourite KOH Vintage Jeans polish.

I have to say, the swatch for this polish on the nail wheel that KOH passed me had a lighter shade compared to what I have on now. When applied, KOH Grungy Touch is actually a dark blue. The shade of blue is quite similar to that of KOH Casual Blue but compared side-by-side, Casual Blue has some hints of petrol blue.

Grungy Touch is a cool polish. It has those dense silver/blue microglitters and it dries matt!


I love the suede finish.



This polish was kindly provided by KOH Cosmetics.

Such gorgeous nails.

MLV said...

This is beautiful! Exactly the kind of blue I like at the moment... not so blue that I would feel uncomfortable wearing it at work. :)

your nail posts are the best and I say this without any bias. you are better than most nail polish bloggers. you must do a generic nail post on how you take care of your nails, come on spill your secrets :P

This looks fab on your nails! I love this blue. The glitters and matte suede finish makes it even more desirable. :)

I already liked the first polish Rock chick, but this one is also a stunner. As always beautiful pis hun! "KTee"xx

Koh Rock Chick stond al op mijn verlanglijstje maar nu ik Grungy Touch op jouw nagels zie zet ik die er ook maar bij. Cool! Ik ga ze zeker allebei kopen als ik ze tegenkom. Die swatches van jou hebben mij weer over de streep getrokken. Groetjes

This polish didn't look that spectacular in the bottle or even on the nail wheel, but seeing it in your photos is a totally different story. It's really showing its beauty on your nails. I find it gorgeous with a very unique matte finish. Grungy touch gets my vote. Have a great weekend my dear. Take care, Nicole x

@Girlie Blogger
Thanks. :)

@MLV
It's an easy medium-dark blue. I think it's pretty work-friendly. :)

@Francini
I'm pleased to hear that, Francini! :)

@PassionForPolish
I'm with you on this. I love the matt/suede finish! :)

@rock-or-not
Yay! :D

@Esther
Ja, dat geldt ook voor mij! Ik vind hem ontzettend cool. :)

@Anutka
It's certainly a lovely combination. :)

@Adorable On Your Vanity
Hey, thank you, Shivani! :) That's a huge compliment you've given to a beauty blogger who does nail polish features on the side. Hmm, I honestly have very few beans to spill - protection and moisturisation are key. I still have a couple more nail care-related posts to do but for the rest, the things I do and the stuff I use have been mentioned/featured in one way or another here on this site. For now, you might find my existing nail care posts helpful. Have a lovely weekend, my dear. :)

@KTee
I feel the same way too. Rock Chick and Grungy Touch are really cool. Thanks so much, KTee. Have a restful weekend! :)

@Nikki
Haha! Goed zo, Nikki. Deze Grungy Touch is echt een aanrader. Ik vind hem tof! Groetjes! :D

@Nicole
Thanks, Nicole. The matt finish adds a very nice touch to this polish. I'm glad it turned out even better than the nail wheel swatch. Yeah, Grungy Touch gets my vote too. Hey, you too, have a fab weekend, my dear! :)

Your nails remind me of denim! I like the similarity

Witoxicity said...

@Imo
Well, it looks like KOH did a good job coming up with the name of this collection. :)

LeonaCarolina said...

I'm so late to comment on this post, but wow! I love this! Totally gorgeous.

Witoxicity said...

@Leona Carolina
I'm pleased you love this too, Leona. It's definitely my favourite of the six. :)

Honey Bomb said...

This is such a gorgeous polish! I LOVE Kohs! I just got Rainy Day and Midnight Blue in swap & can't wait to try them! Wish they weren't so expensive though.

Cynthia Z said...

Jaw-dropping! Love the shade, love the pics. You always apply the polishes so neatly. Now I have to delete my very recent nail polish pics LOL ;D

♥xx♥

Witoxicity said...

@Honey Bomb
Oh, how lovely that you've got those two KOH polishes! I have to say, KOH has a good range of shades. There is bound to be something for everyone. :)

@Cynthia Z
Hey, thanks so much, Cynthia! I don't always succeed in applying polishes neatly - the curse of having shakey hands. I do clean up the edges afterwards, you know. A nail polish corrector pen is great for this. You should try it. I believe Sally Hansen has something like this. Oh, nonsense! You've got lovely nails, my dear. The pics must stay! :D
