Nubar Going Green Collection Swatches

by 11:28 AM 14 comments
Today I am going to show you my Going Green Collection polishes by Nubar. I love a good green polish and you can pretty much be sure that you will find at least one that suits you in this collection.
This is an Eco themed collection, but to be honest, who cares about that? I mean, hooray for the environment and all that, but what I care about is green! An abundance of green!

I think my favourite polish might be Greener, but that's a pretty hard call. Greener beat out Emerald Sparkle as my fave green as soon as it was on my nail. There are lots of good greens in this collection. I don't think there are any duds in this bunch at all. (Wow, that's a lot of times to say green, it's actually not sounding like a word to me anymore.)

There are six shades in the collection. I am missing Reclaim, which is the green holo, but I will stay vigilant in my search for it.

Forest

Forest is a green creme! And an awesome one at that.It's just the right shade too, not too dark, although I am fond of really dark greens. Not too light. I'm not sure I've seen a light green creme if I have it's obviously not memorable or maybe it's so hideous my memory has blocked it so I don't have to relive the horror.

Conserve

Conserve is a blue-green shimmer. More green then blue. Looks awesome on. Has heaps of blue and silver shimmer to it.

Earth

Earth is very similar to Conserve, but this time it's more blue then green. Still awesome though.

Greener

Greener. So, so pretty. Looks a lot like the sparkle on an actual emerald when the light hits it. Drool worthy polish. Not a great picture. I couldn't capture the sparkle well.

Wildlife
Wildlife is a duo chrome that is primarily mossy brown-green with a strong pinky-bronze flash. Pretty cool. Not a colour everyone can wear though.

The formula on these polishes is fabulous, these are all two coaters but for the most part the polishes are almost completely opaque with one coat.

So what do you think? Any favourites?

Be awesome to each other.

  7. Hi Leslie,

    Fabulous choices. I'm not sure I am one of those people that can pull of wildlife though. Maybe I will have to give it a go next week as a full mani.

    And thanks for the compliment, althought I have to admit they were a little ragged and out of shape when I was doing those swatches, but fear not, I have had a proper professional mani since then and the nails are back in a socially acceptable state!

  8. Hi Violet,

    I think you need to be checking out the Nubar Sparkles collection then. I think quite a few of those polishes would be very you.

  9. Hi April,

    I picked mine up from Mai and Jai's Superstore on Ebay. I think they still have them too. There is a link to their store under the "Etailers I love" section. They are awesome to deal with and do some great deals.

    Cheers,

  10. Hi Mehak,

    I'm loving the Chanel polish, but I just can't justify the prices they charge over here for them. I don't even know what they retail for here, I think if I knew it would make me even sadder.

  11. Earth and Wildlife are Awesome. I love the color and texture of the color. I can see me pairing that with a great pump and accessories. I hope you enjoy some of my reviews on my blog also.
