I loved how colourful and sparkly these nails were. I wore them a few weeks ago when the weather was horrible, grey and cold and these made it feel much more summery! The glitter coat is Nubar Hologram Glitter which always looks amazing over any colour.
Just a quick post this morning as I am off to spend the weekend at Loch Ness which was my birthday present from Nick!
Here I am wearing elf Dark Purple Glitter which is not anywhere near as glittery as you might think seeing as it has “glitter” in it’s name. To actually make this polish glitter, I have topped it with Nubar Hologram Glitter which is one of my all time favourite polishes! I love it!
1. Snuggly microwaveable slippers.
2. Giant panda at Edinburgh Aiport.
3. So many OPI polishes at the airport!
4. Nails Inc Nail Jewellery.
5. Bridesmaids flowers at my friend’s wedding.
6. My cat Midnight.
7. Lovely autumn colours.
8. Gorgeous new Zing Organics candle.
9. Finished my Cath Kidston rose hand cream…
10. … and rediscovered Sranrom hand cream.
11. Started snowing while I was in work!
12. Snow settled in the evening.
13. Impressive waves at Stonehaven!
14. Surfers who must have been freezing seeing at the day before it was snowing!
15. Cute harbour at Stonehaven.
16. My first ever deep fried Mars bar!
Here I used my pastel blue Maybelline Forever Strong with my black Nubar Polka Dot topcoat. I love the combination!
I thought I’d try Indian Ocean layered over my Nubar Vogue Vert but I’m not really sure I like the combination. I don’t think the green colour really showed off the blue shimmer from Indian Ocean properly. What do you think?
Sorry for my lack of posts over the last few weeks. My dissertation is due in in just over a week so I’ve been working non stop on that! Here’s how I wore my nails last week - Ink A Dink A Pink from Nicole by OPI topped with the Nubar Polka Dot top coat. I rarely wear bright pink nail varnish but I really like how bright and summery this looked. What do you think?
I think this is one of my favourite designs I’ve worn, it’s so bright and summery!
I used my new yellow 17 polish for the base with Nubar Vogue Vert, Elf Purple Dream and Body Collection Crystal Suede in Midnight Blue on the tips. I topped the tips with Nubar Hologram Glitter. Do you like it?
This week I decided to try the Nubar Hologram Glitter over some different colours to see which looks the best.
The colours I’ve used on my left hand are…..
Little finger: Nubar Vogue Vert
Ring finger: Elf Purple Dream
Middle finger: Body Collection Crystal Suede Midnight Blue
Index finger: Body Collection 2959
Thumb: No7 Stay Perfect Dollar
….. and on my right hand…..
Little finger: No7 Stay Perfect Milan
Ring finger: No7 Stay Perfect Stand Back
Middle finger: Miners Plum
Index finger: Rimmel 819 Green With Envy
Thumb: Elf Dark Purple Glitter
I really can’t choose which combination I prefer, I keep changing my mind! I think the glitter looks good over all of the colours but different ones look better in different lights. What do you think? Have you got a favourite combination?
This week I’m wearing my second new polish from Nubar. This one is called Vogue Vert and is sort of a faded green colour. It’s really different from any other colour I have and I really like it. In real life, it’s actually a bit less minty – have a look at the photos on this blog. I would say that the real life colour is half way between my photos and these ones!
The only downside for me is that it looks very patchy after one coat (I often try and get away with just one coat!). You need at least two coats for the colour to be opaque – on some of my nails I had to use three coats. This is my first Nubar colour, all the others I’ve tried have been top coats. Has anyone else tried any Nubar polishes and have you found them patchy?!
