This week I attempted a mani with a polish brand that I had never tried before: Nubar Nail Lacquer. Nubar is by no means a newbie polish. But my spreadsheet brain and I often opt for the brands that we know and are comfortable with. Not today. Check it out:
For the mani I used one of the brand’s green polish’s from their “Going Green” collection of yesteryear. I totes love this green, because besides for the amazing holographic effect it has on your nails, it is also a solid color BUT not too much to make you look like a nutjob. I mean, I wore it while donning my 9 to 5 corporate garb, and it didn’t make me look like an irresponsible teenager at all! If ever you needed to add a green polish to your collection, this one would be it.
The polish went on pretty well, and 2 coats was enough. After staring at the holo effect and oohing&aahing to no end, I thought to do a bit of a stampy on top of the jeweled green with a yellowy Lemon Sherbert from their pastels collection. The color, in the bottle, is a buttery yellow color… but when stamped over the Reclaim green, it kinda just comes out as a light yellow. Definitely does not do it justice.
The result: Meh. I think that the Reclaim holo green looks good enough on its own! What do you think? Definitely planning to try some more Nubar in the future.
By the way, don’t forget to check out my previous post, where I give away a weekend pass to the upcoming Con.ect “Geek Fest” in Port Elizabeth! AAAACK!
