Nubar Haul at IBS Las Vegas

Back in April I attended IBS Las Vegas.  I was there for work, but as usual I had ulterior motives.  My super secret mission was to check out some of the polish companies this New Yorker doesn’t get to see much of.  I was thrilled that Nubar, China Glaze and CND all had booths at the show.  I need to go on a No-buy because man did I loose my mind .  I’m going to need another storage bin from Ikea!

At Nubar they offered 8 polishes (yes EIGHT) for $25.  AND a free Diamont Top Coat.  Since I’ve never seen Nubar sold in NYC, I decided to take advantage.  Here’s my haul!

Nubar Wildlife

This is from the Going Green Collection.  When I see this, I think of the jungle.  A beautiful Duochrome that’s green shimmer one minute and a pink flash.  It really looks different depending on where you position your hands.  I could not stop looking at it when I wore it the first time.  I didn’t choose it when I’d bought my greens a while back, but I’m glad I picked it up now.  I wore it the next day and was complimented several times on how cool my nails looked.  As a matter of fact, I was on the Subway on the way to work last week and the woman sitting next to me asked me what nail polish I was wearing.  This swatch was taken after a few days of wear.  I was experimenting with something which I’ll tell you all about in another post.

Nubar Milk Chocolate Creme

I love Brown polishes the way Scrangie loves Greens.  This is from the Chocolate Truffles collection.  Chocolate browns make me happy.  Yes it’s an ordinary brown creme but it’s just my style.  Love it!

Nubar Dark Castle

Black with silver/gray shimmer.  Gray polishes are another love of mine, so when Nubar released the Fortress collection, I’d just about died and went to heaven.  I love the richness of this.  It is black but you can still see that’s it’s not just another black creme. Hmmm…I wonder how this would look matte…  I’m going to have to try that.  This one applied beautifully.  this was opaque in one coat.  This swatch is two coats.

Nubar Citadel

Another lovely from the Fortress collection.  A light gray creme that I just had to have!

Nubar Swiss Chocolate

This brown is cooler than Milk Chocolate Creme.  Again, it’s love. I like that even though it is a rich color it’s not vampy or almost black.

Nubar Silver Sword

Silver, gunmetal Gray shimmer.  One of my biggest lemmings is Lippman’s “Hit me with your best shot”.  I think now that I have this, it will satisfy my lemming…at least for now.

Nubar Conserve

A Pretty Blue Green…well a green that has blue/green flash.  I’m not sure how well this compliments my skin tone, but I think I’m going to wear it anyway!

Nubar Chocolate Coffee Bean

I love coffee.  I love Chocolate.  I love this polish.  Love the uniqueness of this brown with pink microglitter.  So Pretty!

So…yeah I went nuts but it was well worth it.  I’m so happy with all of these!

  1. Hey Aina!! This is Nerissa aka Noire Tropical Beauty. Great meeting you @ the Makeup Show etc. I always use the CND Sticky sandwich, ‘cuz it works really well!!!!
    I see you got some Nubars. I have never tried them and I wish they would retail them in NYC. How do you like the products??

    • Hey Nerissa,

      I love Nubar colors. It’s definitely worth ordering online. You can check Scrangie’s archives as I’m sure she has hundreds of swatches you can look through before you place your order. Take care!
