Nubar Eden Collection

Saturday, August 31, 2013
Nubar is one of my favorite brands. Though sometimes hard to find (I usually resort to ordering online but I have spotted them at some independent beauty supply stores), they fulfill an interesting niche of the polish market; all sorts of interesting and unique shades that other brands don't seem to carry. Today I'm showing you the new Eden Collection.

There are eight shades in a whole range of finishes. We have cremes, shimmers, and some frost/glitters.
 Tulips to Kiss You With. Three coats. A sheer but "fluffy" hot pink with fine shimmer. I know "fluffy" isn't an adjective commonly used with polish but the formula was a bit voluminous. Three coats.

 A-Peel-ing. Three coats. A squishy looking orange with shimmer. The shimmer is more subtle on the nail, but it's still rather pretty.

 Dahlia Up Later. Three coats. A frosty pink with holo glitter. Frosts + glitter aren't really my thing, but application was good.

Moss Mistress. My favorite out of the collection, actually. Three coats. An odd yellow green creme. I think that this is one of those shades that people tend to call "interesting" rather than pretty or beautiful but I love it!

 Wild Blue Yonder. Three coats. A super frosty blue with gold with holo glitter. It's not physically bumpy, the glitter just looks like it has texture. Definitely not my cup of tea.

 Rockin' the Garden. Three coats. Another favorite. This has a not quite sheer, not quite jelly yet still a tinge bit of transparency that really makes it look delicate. It's a soft blue shade with really gorgeous shimmer. The shimmer looks full on blue at some angles and more teal at others.

Dare You to Dragonfly. Two coats. A really nice light teal creme. 

Calla Lilly Caramel. Three coats. Another oddity; a sheer warm beige-y tan with gorgeous red shimmer. Strange but just really pretty. 

All in all, the formulas were good (though Tulips to Kiss You With was a bit weird and fluffy). One thing that I noticed was that a few brushes had one hair that was just haywire, but it didn't bother me much (I just used the other side of the brush). 

Shades from The Eden Collection can be purchased for $8 each on the Nubar website. Nubar polishes are high quality, Big-3 Free as well as cruelty free and vegan. 

Which of these shades do you like the best?
