Nubar Spring in The City Collection

Nubar Spring in The City

The Nubar Spring in The City collection features eight new shades, each with a creme finish.

This collection includes a lot of your typical spring-like colors, but also a couple of unexpected ones. The formula was really a bit strange for me with most of these. First of all a few of them had “settled” a bit and getting them shaken up to, blend the darker color at the bottom into the lighter color in the rest of the bottle just didn’t seem to work. Most of these felt really thin and watery and I did need three coats for all but one here. They settled into ridges very easily, so I probably should have used a ridge-filling base coat for the swatches. Oh well, I’ll remember that next time.

Nubar Crushed Candy Collection Swatches and Review

Nubar Crushed Candy

Good Thursday morning! We are almost there. It’s almost Friday. :D

Today I’ve got a new collection called Nubar Crushed Candy. This collection features eight new shades labeled as “sand-like textured polish”. In fact, they are not textured like say Zoya PixieDust or OPI Liquid Sands are. They are gritty-like when they dry when you don’t use a top coat, but really, these are just glitters in a clear base. They actually say on the bottle to use a top coat. Despite the fact that they aren’t your traditional textured polishes, they are cool as hell and I love them!

I swatched these over black so you could see them in their full glory. All were two coats over one coat of black except the first one, Lemon Lime Crush, where I used just one coat for some random reason.

Nubar Wild West Collection Swatches and Review

Nubar Wild West Collection

The Nubar Wild West Collection for fall 2013 features eight new shades all with a western theme.

It’s time to saddle up your trusty stead and hold on to your Stetson as Nubar takes us to the Wild West for Autumn/Winter nails. From the warm bronze tone of Go Native to the cool deep blue of Texas Sky this colourful collection will give clients the ability to change their nail colour with the ever changing season. Add a little glamor at the Saloon with Hi Ho Silver or try something dark mysterious with the deep tones of Never Take Off The Mask. Nubar’s Wild West collection will bring you riding into Autumn/Winter with a wealth of color.

I think they got a lot of these shades perfect for a western theme. They definitely feel very fall-ish as well. Most of these just needed two coats for complete perfection. And one was a nightmare…

Nubar Eden Collection Swatches and Review

Nubar Eden

It’s been a bit since I’ve reviewed a full Nubar collection, but I am very happy to be reviewing the new Eden Collection!

Nubar has long been a favorite brand of mine because of their beautiful, unique shades and most excellent formula. They also happen to have my favorite top coat called Diamont, which I have talked about for years now a zillion times. It’s quick-dry, self-leveling, thick and super shiny. I’ve bought more Diamont bottles than any other top coat ever I think!

This collection features intense, rich, bright colors in some super fun shades. There are cremes, holo glitters and some amazing shimmers as well. The formula was pretty darn great with most of these. A few were a bit thicker so you have to make sure you get a nice even coat. All were 2-3 coats.
