Sunday SPAM: Nubar


In my list of most underrated nail polish brands, Nubar ranks no 3.  Number 1 is BB Couture. Number 2 is so underrated, even I forgot. I’m very sad to see a great brand not getting the attention it deserves – Nubar is almost unknown to Austrian nail polishers!

Anyhow. Nubar Iris Dust, a stunnig raspberry to gold duochrome – 1 coat over OPI The color of Minnie. I had the best success layering duochromes over polishes with a similar basecolor. I’m not such a lover of duochromes, especially the green to purple ones, but I do love this, as it is a bit more subtle!OPI The color of Minnie_Nubar Iris Dust_2

Nubar Geisha Blaze, a blue-toned medium pink. It is very vivid. Quite a stunning color, and executed perfectly. This is two thin coats – the application was easy and flawlessly.

Nubar Honeysuckle seems to be a regular medium candy pink, and it is. So why should you choose this one? The formula is amazing, and it dries so glossy that you don’t even need a topcoat.Nubar Honeysuckle_1

Nubar Tea Rose petal is another ‘regular’pink, but it is more blue toned than Honeysuckle. Again, it dries amazingly glossy. I also love this slight hint of a blue shimmer.Nubar Tea Rose Petal_2

Nubar Star Dust is another amazing duochrome. It changes from a warm gold/bronye to a deep shimmery red. I layered this over OPI The color of Minnie, which is basically red (don’t stone me for only saying red…). I love this so much, I have to show you three pictures! This is only one coat.OPI The color of Minnie_Nubar Iris Dust_1Nubar Tea Rose Petal_Nubar Star Dust_2Nubar Tea Rose Petal_Nubar Star Dust_3

  1. Nubar has some truly great shades. Sadly it is unavailable in Serbia. Is it sold in drugstores and shops in Austria or only in online stores?

  2. Love them! Every single one of them!

  3. Sind alle wirklich total schön<3

  4. Man, I also think Nubar is completely underrated! I have a bunch of duochromes form them I haven’t even worn yet, but I’ll take your tip to layer them over a similar base color. Awesome post.

  5. I loved all the Nubars I’ve tried so far except one (Indigo Illusion). What a great brand!
