nubar swatches

i showed ya'll the huuuuuge haul me & my girl mickelle picked up when nubar had a discount sale awhile ago. and finally finally here are my swatches of the ones i got for myself. of course you will see some of the colors M got too, but here are mine :D

nubar lemon sorbet is one i've been wanting forever and was one of a kind, when i got it. now that pastel is the new thing for spring, this color seems to be EVERYWHERE! china glaze up & away collex has one, orly's spring sweet collex has one, illamasqua's new spring has one, etc. whateva i still like this one. it reminds me of a baby chick!
nubar pink flame is a gorgeous duochrome that was way hard to capture on camera. it flashes red, pink, orange, and slightly purple. i really loved this one on me, i couldn't stop staring at it! this swatch is a full mani using nubar's foundation base coat and diamont topcoat. i found that nubar lacquer lasts a lot longer on me when used with their full line of products, which i find to be true with many brands.
nubar gold leaf, which i bought because of scrangie's beautiful swatches. i found it to be pretty similar to nubar's new chocolate caramel, which was in mickelle's haul, but it's duochrome was what i dying for. chocolate caramel is more of a straight shimmer. bronze, copper, brown, and some gorgeous gold are the different colors this baby flashes. it really shines in the sun.
nubar's peacock feathers is really my favorite of the bunch. it was the reason, no joke, for the entire order we placed as both of us were dying for the polish. peacock is a craaaazy duochrome that is purple, green, and green. just like peacock feathers of course! indoors it is mainly purple, but with every turn or flick of the wrist you see the multi colors. and in the sun, the blue and purple duo is most apparent.
i went picture happy on this one, cuz i love it so much! hope your weekends are going well!
