Dear Rus Noblesse NM25 (I think?)

I'm not sure if there's a proper name for this polish besides NM25. I'm absolutely positive that it deserves one, though, because it was such a wonderful surprise. Far as I'm able to name it, this is Dear Rus Noblesse NM25.

I'd never heard of Korean brand Dear Rus Noblesse before, but I grabbed a few of their yogurt-style polishes on the cheap from the bins at Bonjour (down Queen's Road in Central, just past where the H&M used to be. yeah, you know the place...). No idea if they'd be any good, but the price was right to take a chance. Well, the first one turned out to be a genuine delight!

Dear Rus NM25 features small and medium pieces of flaming red/orange (more red than in these pics but still with an orange-y glow) glitter in a crelly base of buttery, fluffy, baby-chick, frothy-lemon yellow sweetness. This is three coats, though two would have been perfect for normal people who don't freak out at a teeny hint of VNL, and the formula was fantastic. Creamy, easy to work with, and the glitter spread gorgeously. I full-on heart this polish.

Mainstream Western brands, y'all need to start paying attention to this yogurt trend immediately because the indies, and now the Korean brands, are absolutely nailing it. I'm hoping I'll be able to find more of these on my next trip past Bonjour. I also found out--in looking up what exactly to call this polish (Dearrus? Dear Rus? Something about Sur Nail, like the sticker on the back?)--that Llarowe now carries a whole bunch of Dear Rus polishes now too, so I'll no doubt be checking out more from this brand soon!

  2. I just ordered 2 of these from Llarowe and this was my 3rd choice that didn't make the cut. Now that I see your lovely swatch I'm kicking myself for not getting this one too! I got the green one and the purple one.

  3. Hi...what do you mean by "yogurt?" Does that refer to the finish? If yes, how is it different than a creme? Or does it refer to the consistency? If yes, what's "yogurty" about it? Thanks!

  5. I don't like yellow, but this nail polish looks good on your nails... I wonder how the blue version would look? :-)
