Way back when I still had a more oval nail shape and hadn’t set up my photo tent I wanted to create some kind of candy themed manicure. First I painted a base of OPI’s Alpine Snow (my favorite white polish of all time) and dotted Haribo candy on top with Nubar’s Sexy Red, China Glaze’s green Starboard and OPI’s yellow Candlelight. I added some pink dots with Sally Hansen’s Party Hard-Y.
Nubar’s Chartreuse is one of those polishes that scream spring and summer. The color itself is actually quite flattering and the polish has Nubar’s usual fantastic formula; easy to apply, opaque at two generous coats and dried fast. This rapidly became a favorite everyday wear polish 🙂
If you can spot those little tiny hexes of green glitter they are my failed attempt at a subtle polka dot manicure with hand placed glitter.
There have been very few additions to my stash lately but Nubar’s My Sweet Escape collection is one of them.
In general I prefer to use Nubar for day to day manicures because of their (unique for me) ability to NOT chip after less then 24 hours.
L-R: Dusk till Dawn, Into the Wild, Jaded and Sour Apple.
L-R: Nubar’s Resort Yellow, My New Obsession, On the Radar and Forbidden Fruit.
Nubar is truly a favorite brand for me and even though this is hardly my kind of pink polish I like Nubar’s Rouge well enough. Rouge is a creme polish with Nubars wonderful formula; it was easy to apply and dried fast. It needs a top coat badly though.
These pictures show it off a bit less bright pink then it should be 🙂
