Nubar Spring in the City Collection: Swatches & Review
Saturday, January 25, 2014
Hello! On a happier note, today I have a gorgeous spring collection to show you.
I immediately loved the Nubar Spring in the City Collection as soon as it arrived at my door. The colors are interesting and compliment each other quite well. There are eight shades total, all creme finish.
Succulent. Three coats. A bright neon coral pastel. Hard to capture, it's more vivid in real life.
Dreamy Moss. Three coats. A minty aqua shade, on the softer, muted side.
Wildflower Blooming. Three coats. More peachy orange than Succulent, a similar neon pastel.
Spring in Her Step. Three coats. A sort of 70's pink. Not shocking but still stands out.
Sleek in the City. Three coats. A really great unusual color! A mauve shade that reminds me of red mung bean paste inside mochi.
City Self. Three coats. Light pastel purple, warmer than New Mood.
Formula was pretty good on the whole, though definitely pair these with a good base like Nubar Foundation. I used another one just for quick swatching and they popped right off my nail.
I really adore these colors. I've already done two manicures featuring some of the shades.
The colors are interesting, not tired in the least bit. I like that while there are pastel shades, they're re-imagined, not the same boring pastels that resurface every spring.
Nubar is Big-3 free and vegan! Nubar shades can be purchased here. This collection isn't available quite yet, but you can bet it'll be on the website shorty.
