I am pretty sure you’ve heard by now that there is a new reality show about a nail salon called The Painted Nail on the TV Guide channel. I haven’t seen the show myself because I don’t get that channel in HD (HD snob here) and I don’t really watch reality TV much.
In conjunction with the show Nubar released a collection of polish printed with “The Painted Nail” logo on them. There are about 24 colors in the collection that go from sheer pale colors, to deep sparkly ones.
I haven’t reviewed a new Nubar collection in a long time and had kind of forgotten how fabulous their formula is.
Love My Loubys, Legendary Lavender
Love My Loubys
Love My Loubys is a bright super shiny cherry red creme. It’s very cool-toned and blue-based. WOW. I mean yes, it’s a red creme and who doesn’t have 12 zillion of them already? I know I do but this is just so shiny and pretty. The formula was MADNESS – so smooth and easy to apply. This was two coats and complete perfection. Color me impressed for a red creme!
Legendary Lavender is a medium/deep purple with lavender, blue and pink sparkles. Ironically this was the one I expected to like more, but I liked less. The formula was good, but not as good as Love My Loubys. It was thicker and did give me some cuticle drag because I didn’t wait long enough in-between coats. It also required three coats to get it as rich as I wanted. Still a very pretty color though.
These two were great but I would really like to see some more of the unusual green and yellow colors they have like Mestiza, Fairy Wings, Beware Of You, H-Bomb, Get Hatched and Golden Egg.
