Nubar Gem and Violet Sparkle

I picked these two up from a blog sale to gift to someone, but it turns out she already had them, so I decided to swatch them real quick.


Nubar Gem - 3 coats. Yeahhhh not my style at all.




Nubar Violet Sparkle - I can't remember if this is 2 or 3 coats. There's topcoat on here too. The colour in these pictures are sooo inaccurate. Damn you purple! Imagine it being a more Mardi Gras type purple; way warmer than how it photographs. I think I would actually like it a lot better if it looked like this IRL. Haha.



Oh well, you win some, you lose some. These will be making an appearance in my next blog sale (early May?) for sure. These were my first Nubars, and I have to say, the bottles are really very nice and sleek. Smaller than I had imagined!

  1. Both very pretty, but a bummer they didn't do much for you. I love Nubars, especially the duochromes so hopefully your next try with Nubar will be better =)

  6. I always think that same thing about the bottles when I first get one. Nubar, Zoya, BB Couture...when I got my first, they looked so small compared to on the computer!
