NOTD: Nivea Nr. 97 - Berry Gloss

Just picked this one out today whilst grocery shopping. Nivea nailpolishes are pretty good quality and wear a really long time on me without chipping, but they take a long time to dry (virtually endless without a quick-dry topcoat) and I wish they offered more "daring" colors. This is one of the more unique ones, it's a deep purple-raspberry creme with a jelly-like finish. Needed 3 coats of this to get it opaque though.

I have to reshape my middle finger nail, it broke a couple weeks ago right down to the base, it was painful. :(

  1. This looks AMAZING!!!

    PS - I love the NIVEA deodorant. I picked one in Iceland last year and I cannot find any in the USA :(

  2. I think that they came out really nice. Very pretty color and so shiny...Really great....I didn't know that Nivea made polishes...What is your favorite brand?

  3. Nivea has a whole makeup, nailpolish and cosmetic line out called Nivea Beaute, but it's only available in Europe I think.

    I don't really have a fav brand of nailpolish, I usually go more for unique or eye-catching colors. I can make any brand "work" somehow with a good base and top coat. I do however like OPI, China Glaze, Misa and even some drugstore brands like Nivea, Essence and Maybelline.

  6. Hey Julia!
    I love your blog and channel on youtube. Enamel and loved that I am also in love with enamels, pity that here in Brazil has no such marks of glaze that you show. I have a curiosity: I found the channel of a girl on youtube who is also great makeup artist and she is very similar to you. It is your sister?
    This is her channel if you want to know: http://www.youtube.com/user/Nireyna

    This may seem ridiculous, but I would love if you could make a video on how you shape your nails. I LOVE the shape of your nails and I can't shape mine like that if my life depended on it!

    Nive Turbo color is promoted to dry in 45sec. It drys 35 min with 2 coats. I also have 1 mini-bottle ("Sugar") - it takes 3 hours for 3 coats. ButI love it since this color I can t find anywhere else.
    Berry Gloss looks fabulous on your nails! But I wouldn t buy it since 1) it doesn't dry - it would be dusting in my cupboard forewer 2)it costs as OPI (if ordering it online) which drys much better....
