Nanacoco Crystal HD Collection - Pt 1

12:00 AM

Last week, I was in one of my local Beauty Supply Stores and as I turned the corner to go down another aisle, for a split second I thought I had found the mother-load of OPI DS polishes; all I saw were silver tops. Sadly, I was mistaken but I did find a line of nail polishes that I was not familiar with.  So today, I am sharing with you some of the Nanacoco Crystal HD Collection

I didn't purchase any the first time I saw them. I came home to do a little research. I inquired on several of the nail forums I belong to and with the exception of 1 or 2 ladies, no one was familiar with this brand.  After more research still, I was able to determine that Nanacoco is a part of the Annie brand.  Now Annie is a brand I have been familiar for many years. They produce several of the hair products & accessories that I have used over the years; however, I never knew that they also had a polish line.  My research tells me that in addition to their core classics collection and a neon collection, Nanacoco has also recently released their Nanacoco Crystal HD Collection-"formulated with dazzling crystal dust and pigments so saturated with color they glow". Well I can't say that these polishes glow but they are well worth taking a look at. 

So I went back and from the collection of 24, I purchased 7 (so far, LOL!)  They are all chrome-y, foils with crystal dust throughout.

If you have followed my blog or twitter page for any time, the colors I picked are no big surprise. The first polish I will share is Mystic #21008, a mid-purple, with steely-gray undertones.

Next, is Neon Flux #21012. The name completely throws me, there is nothing neon about this polish. It is a cool-toned green with silver undertones. Neon Flux is one of my favorites of the set I've purchased so far.

Then there is Ocean World #21022. A gorgeous steal blue. No surprise that I would love the blue.

Egyptian Secret #21009, is a coppery gold tone. This is a new penny look.


One shade I almost bypassed was Cyber Love  #21004. At first sight, it looked like just another silver, but upon further inspection, it is a taupe-y, silver with warm undertones. Not the stark silver I often disregard.

I had to get one of the pinks, and will most likely go back for some of the brighter magenta pinks, but this time I picked up Amethyst #21002. A soft pink.

And last, just for this post because I will be going back for more, but not least, is Eva's Memory #21014, a beautiful purple.  If I had to rank the set I've purchase so far, Eva's Memory would be in the top 3 for sure. But that would be a difficult call to make.

So that is it for now, but I'm sure that you will see other Nanacoco swatches from me in the near future. I still have 17 other shades to choose from in the Nanacoco Crystal HD Collection and two other collections to take a look at.  I have learned a valuable lesson with this adventure, don't overlook the beauty supply collections.  At least give them a try.

What beauty supply products have you given a second look and are glad you did?

  • Application: If done properly, you could probably get a fully opaque application with just one coat. But with my first try I experienced streaking, much like the streaking I get with holographic polishes. But with the second coat, the finish was just right.
  • Available: So far, I have only seen this line in 1 of my local beauty supply stores.
  • Price: Reg Price $1.99 ***WHAT?!?!***
  • Bottle Size: 16 ml, 0.54 fluid ounces
  • Selection:  Collections include classics, neons, and this Crystal collection
  • Brush: square brush head between a normal brush and the likes of an OPI pro-wide.

Grace, Peace, & Blessings.
