I am very excited to introduce the FALLing in Love 2014 collection from NUBAR- eight colors that rule the runway.
According to the press release, "Forget Fall Pressures this season, NUBAR has love on the mind. Eight colors rich in glistening Mica that demand attention whether at work, the plan, parties or play"
As always, "All NUBAR lacquers feature an ergonomically designed cap and high-quality bristles for comfort and performance. Free of the Big 5: phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde, resin, and camphor. All polishes are 100% free of parabens. NUBAR has the backing of P.E.T.A., guaranteeing no animals are used to test products."
The NUBAR FALLing in Love 2014 collection consists of:
Love American Style: an all true bright cherry red creme. (Introducing a mod version of a classic red, NUBAR's cherry lacquer.)
Sweet Hue: a hot pink with a very subtle, supremely fine micro shimmer running through it. (The minute this pink polish is perfected, images of young love and lite days take way. This giddy-yet-glam color makes a more modern, brighter appearance on romantics' hands on on the runway this season.)
First Date: a shimmering mustard yellow. (Polishing with our oh-so-now electric yellow might remind you of your first date. Sunny fall days, picking the perfect polish, rushing to the phone, fancy fingers dialing your beau.)
Don't Russet: a deep rust. (Enjoy the richness of life and love and adorn this rich, ruby hue.)
Passion's Pain: a rich deep burgundy with brown undertones. (But love isn't always roses, reflected in a rich, moody burgundy hue that gives hands their own sophistication while on the move with someone special, or solo. Passion's pain can persist but like the seasons, the colors of our lives change.)
Queen: a deep metallic violet. (You're his queen, he treats you like royalty, reflected in a sexy, deep purple hue that sparkles just like your charisma this fashion- forward fall.)
Lush: a dark peacock teal. (Be the envy of fashionistas with this Pantone-inspired green rich in color, and best shown off wrapped around him!)
Affair: a shimmering peacock teal. (Your affair evokes images of the sea: Jeweled, confident colors full of body, life.)
(all swatches shown here are 2 coats, and a top coat).
Over all I am very pleased with this latest collection from NUBAR. The lacquers are all highly pigmented, and covered beautifully in two coats; there was no streaking, or brushstrokes, or any issues to raise.
As far as the color palette is concerned, I would've preferred to not have the brighter shades like Sweet Hue and First Date. Instead, I would have had some more moody darker colors. Nonetheless, I would still recommend this collection to my readers. There is much depth and richness overall in this collection, which will be perfect as the warm weather starts to cool off. My three personal favorites are: Don't Russet, Passion's Pain, & Affair.
NUBAR nail lacquers retail for $8.40 each, or $56 for the complete eight piece kit.
