Hello my lovely fiends!
So, after sporting neons and holo polishes of all sorts for the past days I moved on to another passion of mine, glitter polishes, hehehehe
I know that removing glitter polish from your nails can be quite a pain in your behind, but in my opinion, it is oh so worth it! Plus, I might say it does give me some sort of hollywood aura, meaning with all this glitter, bling-bling and sparkle on my nails boy do I have a reason to wear dark sunglasses =)
So today I am presenting to you what must be the mother of all sparkle collections, the Nubar Sparkles *yay* I divided this in two parts, because one post would have contained a gazillion pics, which are sort of too many I guess...
So let's start off and take a look at those glamour beauties!
Oh, just one more thing:
Sweet Tini from Tini's Nailcorner tagged me for my favorite 10 nail polishes, I hope I will get to do this tag real soon, so stay tuned for that!
Nubar Star Sparkle
This is a clear base with silver/holographic glitter. I do like the glitter from this collection, since it is so fine and densely packed in the polishes. Despite the clear base, two coats gets this almost opaque, which means on the other side that Star Sparkle doesn't really work as a holographic TopCoat since the glitter is too densely packed. So it is not unique as a silver/holo glitter polish, but nevertheless this is beautiful!
Nubar Violet Sparkle
Boy, this is one of my personal highlights,let me tell you! Again, this is a clear base but its literally OVERLOADED with dark purple/violet/dark pink glitter! This is sooooooo droolworthy I couldn't stop staring at my nails! the pictures don't do this polish justice, there was no way for me to capture the complete complexity of this polish on camera *sigh*
Nubar Sky Sparkle
Clear base ith sky blue glitter. I don't know why, but I have the impression that the glitter isn't as packed in this polish. Two coats don't give you the desired coverage, I actually applied 3 coats on the pics. It still is a beautiful color, not only sky blue, but with a hint of turquoise glitter effects. It is a bummer though that it doesn't really cover as much as I would have liked...
Nubar Hyacinth Sparkle
Judging by the promo pics, I wasn't to excited about this one, but once on my nails it blew me away! The polish features a lightly tinted base and loooovely lavender glitter. It is a cool toned lavender, purple color to beautiful to be true! I must say, this might be the prettiest purple glitter I own. Funny how you can misjudge a polish just by looking at it in the bottle or from a promo pic. So I am more than glad that I picked this treasure up!
So stay tuned for part two!!!
