Nubar POP! Spring 15 Collection

Nubar POP! Spring 15 Collection

The Nubar POP! Spring 15 Collection features eight new creme shades. The colors come in the regular nail lacquer formula as well as their Gelicure Soak-Off Gel Polish.

What I like about these colors is they aren’t all totally predictable for a spring collection. For the most part the formula was really good which is how Nubar normally is. A couple of them I maybe could have used three thin coats, but I did two for all these swatches.

Nubar FALLing in Love Collection for Fall 2014

Nubar FALLing in Love

The Nubar FALLing in Love Collection for Fall 2014 features eight new shades, some of them so gorgeous I consider them must-haves!

Many of these definitely feel like they belong in an autumn collection, but a couple seem more like bright and cheery summer shades. No matter, I don’t really care about those kinds of things. The formula overall was good, with a couple small annoyances. Most of these did cover with two coats, but one in particular gave me some major grief.

And in case you are new to Nubar you might want to know that they are 3-free, cruelty-free and vegan. Their polishes are amazing, they have some absolutely stunning shades, and they are very underrated! So buy some! And no, no one paid me to say that. :)

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.
