Victoria Shu

One of my blog policies is: each and every polish I own must be swatched and shown to my readers. Even if it's immemorially old, discontinued or impossible to find - I just tend to show everything I wear. The polish of today's post falls exactly under all of these categories: old as dirt and not sold anymore. Victoria Shu #16 was purchased like 7 years ago, and nowadays the Internet history does not contain any mentioning about this line, although the brand remains. But has nothing to do with Barcelona, I'm afraid.

The colour is quite pretty though: a purple shade with more red than blue tint in the mix, full of silver shimmer. Application was pleasant for such a dark shade, in fact it's a 1-coater and it stamps perfectly too! :)

After wearing it for a day I came up with a thought that such a texture should look nice mattified. Not bad, indeed :)



And then I added some top coat again and stamped over the base colour with BM-316. As you can see, I was really enjoying all kinds of variations with this polish :) 



It seems that even then, 7 years ago, I managed to pick a nice interesting shade. By the way, if you can remember any dupes or similar shades - please let me know!! This polish is simply finishing and I can't repurchase it, but I'd love to own a similar shade again..

    1. Спасибо :) Если я вижу темный оттенок с серебристым шиммером, меня всегда тянет его заматтировать :)

  7. It looks best with stamping on top but mattified is a close second :D And I agree with your policy everything I own shall be swatched, pretty polish is always nice to look at even though you can't buy it anymore

  13. I absolutely agree with you about showing all polishes, even if they are "from the vault"!
    This one is pretty (especially mattified), I can't come up with any dupes atm, but the mattified/satin version reminds me so much of OPI We'll always have Paris suede (I swatched it at the beginning of my blogging journey and I'm quite ashamed of that picture :-/, not worth linking)!

  14. I have the same polish. But my nail is bright red. It is very, very old, I think more than 10 years, and I am not sure that it is a safe to use it.
