From today I will start presenting you the polishes I bought in Seoul.
The first one is a polish from the brand "Scandal", a Korean brand.
The name of the polish is "Mirage Pink" (#304). It's a coral-based polish with pink, orange and gold in it. Its name is Mirage Pink but to me the overall result is more coral and orange-toned than pink....
So yeah, somtimes, the polish looks really coral on your nails and it leans toward orange while in the shade, it looks more pink (medium pink). And nearly all the time, it flashes gold really strongly! This gold flash is much stronger than what you have in Zoya Happi for example. And Zoya Happi is clearly pink (bubble gum pink) and doesn't have any other color in its base while here, Mirage Pink has a trichrome coral-orange-pink base. I believe that the "orange effect" is due to this strong gold flash.
Application was very nice, a little sheer on the first layer but opaque with 2 or 3 coats. Here I used 3 coats, without top coat.
|Duochrome! See the orange in the lower part of the nails and pink in the upper part.|
On this last picture, you can see the orange color on the lower part of the nail and the pink color on the upper part (duochrome).
Finally I'd like to show you a bottle comparison between the Scandal and the Nfu Oh's bottles.

Final verdict: This is the first time I use any Scandal nail polishes and I must admit I've been quite impressed by its quality and awesomeness. The color is really intriguing and a bit difficult to describe...it's an orange coral that changes to pink according to the light and has a super strong gold flash. This gold flash is present even in the shade...so no need super stong light to catch a glimps of it! Application was easy.
I bought 2 other Scandal polishes which I'll show you soon. They are glitters~ So Scandal has quite a large range of different polishes (different colors and textures). It's a really interesting brand IMO. Have you already heard about it?
