Anna Sui 108

A quick NOTD for you today from the always fabulous Anna Sui. Oh how I love the products! The rose scent! The packaging! I picked up this gorgeous Anna Sui 108 flakie a few trips back to HK and I'm finally showing you today. Better late than never haha. And it's worth the wait too - it is AH-MAZING!!


Anna Sui 108 is an amazing polish that contains large flakie pieces suspended in a light blue glitter base. The base looks dark in the bottle but it's light blue when swatched. The flakie pieces are quite large actually and border on being actual iridescent glitter pieces. A cross between the two I guess??!! Here I've layered 2 coats over 1 coat of Misa High Waist Hue as underwear and 1 coat of Laka 81.

Off to sniff my lovely rose smelling fingers now haha. I love this combo so much!! What do you think?

Thanks for looking as always!

  4. This reminds me of Deborah Lippmann's Across the Universe. :D Lovely polish! :D

    1. Now that you mention it it does look sort of similar to Across the Universe! It's similar sort of blue and they both give such a gorgeous effect. ATU is one of my favourite glitters!

  5. Oh. My. God. It looks amazing, and for me is a much better simple starry night/galaxy style nail than Deborah Lippman's "Across the Universe".

    Does Anna Sui polish chip easy in your experience?

    1. I think maybe because the glitters in ATU are all uniform whereas 108 it's all different so gives a really awesome effect.

      This polish has stayed on relatively ok but the other Anna Sui polish I purchased (304 which I swatched here) didn't even last 12hours!!

    1. No need to be jealous Mickey! They are awesome polishes but not entirely a "must have", just a "nice-to-have" ;)

    1. The effect is even more amazing in real life Brianna! If you can get your hands on this polish definitely do.

  12. Love the combination, those flakes look really good! Does the polish seriously smell like roses? That's just awesome! :)

    1. Yes indeed it does Sera!! I'm pretty sure all her cosmetics smell like roses which I think is fantastic. Maybe not for some though! The scent isn't too strong (not for me anyway because I love rose scented things!) and lasts for a while.

      Delete
  13. Oh wow! This is AMAZING! Any idea where international peeps can get this beauty?

    1. yesstyle.com sell some of the polishes but sadly not 108 from what I can see. For the nail polishes unfortunately I think they will be hard to track down.. will you be traveling to Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, China or Canada anytime soon? From the looks of the official site that's where the stores/counters are located: http://www.annasui.com/en/anna-sui-location.html

  16. It's such a beautiful polish! But the rose scent would drive me nuts, I have such a bad floral allergy. :(

    1. Doh that sucks Rie!! =( I don't find the scent that strong because I wear rose perfume all the time but I can imagine it would be irritating for many.

    1. Unfortunately Chloe the polishes no longer come in these gorgeous rose bottles anymore! They come in these corset bottles which you can see on the offical site here. I don't think 108 is available anymore thoug! =( yesstyle.com sell some of the polishes too

      Delete
  18. The rose scent lasts for days! I have one Anna Sui and I just love the rose scent :)

  19. That bottle is so cute but it's really not the best for showing off the polish. I would never have guessed it looks so good on the nail.

    1. That is such a good point. It doesn't show off the flakies to their best potential because of the curves of the rose.

      Delete
  20. Holy cow, that is an AMAZING colour. Far out, I will need to hunt it down!! Any idea which online retailers stock Anna Sui polishes? I had no idea they even did varnish!

    1. Oh no I created a lemming that possibly can't be fulfilled! I think 108 is discontinued actually as I can't see the shade on their official website. The only online site I know that sells Anna Sui polish is yesstyle.com but they don't have a huge selection of colours.

  21. That's such a pretty polish plus it looks so good on you

    ReplyDelete
  22. That is stunning! I need to start playin around with what I layer my flakies with, to get maximum awesomeness out of them like you do :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Just lovely, like all Anna Sui's. Love it. Great flakie pick up!
    It really is pleasing to have the rose instead of that polish like smell too haha

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow this is so pretty! I've never tried any Anna Sui polishes but I LOVE the packaging!
