Haul - Nubar Goodness

Hi Girlies :o)

My latest haul is from Nubar, I had been looking at the duo-chrome polishes and narrowed it down to four, I ordered one (as that was what I had limited myself to), then ended up going back and adding the other three later on, plus one of their holographic polishes too, bad girl!
They have all now arrived and I have to say, I am seriously impressed, they are GORGEOUS!!!!
I had read that Nubar did the best duo-chromes and they were not kidding, they are amazing.

Look at these amazing colours!

I have tried to photograph them, but the duo-chrome effect is not as obvious in the pictures as it is in real life, I need sunshine to bring it out, and that is not happening here for a while yet....

Reclaim is a fantastic green holographic polish

Wildlife is one of my favourites, a deep copper/gold with moss green, scrummy!


Purple Beach is a wonderful, almost silvery purple and gold/green duo-chrome

Iris Dust is a deep, rich pink with and orangey copper duo-chrome

Peacock Feathers is one incredible polish, it has navy, indigo, green and golds, amazing!


I tried to get some swatches on my nail wheel but once again the photos do not do these polishes justice......

This shows the dominant colour of each polish.....plus the holographic goodness that is Reclaim


This photo, although blurred, does show the duo-chrome effect a little better, see how one half of the nail is one colour and the other half shows the second.....


Aren't they just amazing!? I love these, they are definitely amongst my favourite polishes. The application of these was perfect, some are a little on the sheer side and took 3-4 coats to get bottle colour, but they were so easy to apply and dried fast so it was a breeze to do.

As I wear these I will photograph them again, hopefully showing the duo-chrome better. Can't wait to try them all on my actual nails!

I just got wildlife today and I'm super excited to try it with a stamper!!

BabyD @ Polish and Powder said...

@Niki: it does stamp, I tried Wildlife as it is a bit thicker, and it does stamp okay, you just need the right base colour to stamp on.

Ooh these are so great, aren't they? Ordered these a while ago, can't wait for them to arrive.

Duochrome is my favorite finish <3

Soooo I've totally started to eye me some Nubars. lol Peacock Feathers was the first one I saw that made me go "OMG WANT!" after I decided to get 2010. Iris Dust is also gorgeous though! I'm trying to decide which ones to order. So hard!
I can't JUST order 2010 though, it wouldn't be the best representation of what Nubar can do! Oh darn, you mean I HAVE to order at least one more? Phoo. :P
