My love for romantic Holo's - Nubar Prism Collection

Hello hello my dear fiends!

I survived yesterday's attack of monster dorkyness and I am back to my old self again, yay! I was also able to catch a glimpse of sun today, so I am finally able to show you two polishes that I have been saving for a while. Lucky you!
When I first heard about Nubar bringing out a "Holo" Collection I was like, jumping for joy, Holos and from Nubar? That's two things I LOVE :-) So of course, I was super excited when I saw the first swatches of the Collection. Hmmmmm, to be honest, I was pretty cooled down then. The Nubar Prisms are nothing like China Glaze OMG Collection and that's what I wanted them to be, so of course I was a bit bummed. Nevertheless, I couldn't keep my fingers off the ordering button and still got two polishes from the Collection, Absolute and Treasure. What should I say? I was delighted :-) Yup, they are no OMG Holo's, but they are just something else. I would say they are more in between a sparkle and a soft Holo, more like the China Glaze's Kaleidoscope Collection. So to sum it up, I would say the Nubar Prisms are romantic sheer shimmers with a soft Holo.

But now on to the evidence ;-)

This more a turquoise than a blue, makes me think of carribean waters, pretty!

on this bottle pic you can see how fine the glitter/holo sparkles are

I needed three coats, the base is pretty sheer, I am usually not a big fan of sheer, but in this case it totally fits, as the whole effect of this polish is very light and airy

I think I will put this on my summer polish drawer, what do you think?

Pretty light purple color, not extremely unique colorwise, but me likes purples :-)

Again, on this bottle pic it really shows how finely grained the holo/shimmer is

Another three coats, but I guess if you would add the fine holo grains to a thicker, more opaque base you would totally lose the effect

another blurred pic for the Holo hehehe :-)

I sooooooo wish that the sun would have come out a few weeks sooner, this is such a pretty spring color!
