Makeup Masala Gets Ready for Spring

Toma at Makeup Masala recently had a chance to try nubar's Skin Essentials, and she was very pleased with them. Toma was familiar with nubar "for their brilliant nail polishes," but didn't know that nubar also has an equally high quality skin care line.

Toma told her readers that,"These lotions literally glide over skin and are thick without being heavy or greasy," and that,"My absolute favorite in this line is Pomegranate Delight."

A Stroke Of Color with Lemon Sorbet

We discovered that Michelle of A Stroke of Color is one of the many who are impressed with nubar's Lemon Sorbet. She says, "it is a huge favourite of mine like all of the other colors from that collection... It's a very soft pastel yellow creme that applies amazingly in 3 thin coats, and would look good on most skin tones."

As her readers know, Michelle often uses a nail art stamper. To complete this manicure, she used our Lavender with her stamper.

Both Lemon Sorbet and Lavender, two of nubar's Pastel Fever Collection, are available at

The Nailphile Gets Creative with Pasadena Purple and Purple Fire

We found Siobhan at The Nailphile wearing nubar, and again we exceeded her expectations. Yesterday she wore Pasadena Purple and found that, "I saw images from the movie with it and bottle pictures of it, even other blogs' pictures, of it. I tell you: pictures don't do this one justice. Mine don't either. This is an instant Top 20 polish for me... It's so rich and pretty and glowy!" That is high praise coming from someone with so many polishes to choose from as The Nailphile.

Siobhan was thrilled with Pasadena Purple, and she was also excited to have recently received some of our Glitters. She said, "...more pretties came with it that I couldn't wait to dig into. I have glitters! I added two coats of Nubar Purple Fire to this one."

Here are her photographs of the polishes.

Because Pasadena Purple has been the hit color of Spring 2009, it is temporarily out of stock at Rest assured that it will be back in stock very soon, and Purple Fire can currently be found at

The Polish Addict Loves nubar Purple Beach

Steph at The Polish Addict recently had a chance to wear our Purple Beach, and she discovered what we've known for a long time: nubar's duochromes are a class apart from all other duochromes. Steph says, "My big beef with duo-chromes is that they generally look ridiculously amazing in the bottle but are much, much less impressive once applied on the nail. Purple Beach is what a duo-chrome should be when applied. "

Steph goes on to tell her readers of Purple Beach, "It’s a gorgeous high intensity duo-chrome that transforms from purple to ash to green. The duo-chrome is very easily seen all the time, not just in special lighting while your fingers are twister tilted in strange directions. It’s perfect in two coats and the application was not fussy." We received her highest praise when she said, "I rarely say this, but Purple Beach is a *must* own color. It’s the type of polish that causes constant distraction and careless driving. Colors like this keep my passion for polish alive." We at nubar are happy to keep The Polish Addict's passion alive!

The Nailphile Raves About Diamont Seal & Shine Quick Dry Top Coat

Today we found Siobhan at The Nailphile sharing her excitement about nubar's Diamont Seal & Shine Quick Dry Top Coat while she wore our Ruby Velvet after searching for the perfect red.

She begins by declaring herself a convert to Diamont Seal & Shine, saying, "I mentioned yesterday that I tried Nubar's Diamont Seal & Shine for the first time, was impressed, but not convinced. Today I'm convinced." Siobhan goes on to tell her readers that "the two to three minutes Nubar Diamont took [to completely dry three coats of polish] just blew me away," and that Diamont Seal & Shine is now her favorite top coat. She noticed how special Diamont Seal & Shine is because, "Usually, when I post right after applying a color, my nails are still drying while I type the post. Today, my nails were literally dry by the time I was uploading pictures from my camera to the computer... I don't recall that they have ever been that dry that fast before."

Here are her photographs of Ruby Velvet with Diamont Seal & Shine Quick Dry Top Coat.

The full reviews are available on The Nailphile, and both Diamont Seal & Shine Quick Dry Top Coat and Ruby Velvet are available now at

A Stroke of Color Gets Creative with nubar

Nail art is emerging as a cutting edge trend this year, and many women find using a simple nail stamping system the easiest way to enjoy nail art. However, the special polishes sold with these systems are often very expensive, deterring many from having more fun with their manicures.

We found that one creative blogger, Michelle at A Stroke of Color, found a way to work around the tiny expensive polishes: she uses nubar Pastels for her nail art! nubar's Pastel Fever Collection polishes are so well pigmented that they work beautifully with the stamping systems, and unlike other polishes, they do not smudge when a top coat is applied. Michelle's manicure shows you what a beautiful effect she was able to create using nubar's Baby Blue.

nubar's Baby Blue, as well the entire Pastel Fever Collection, are available at
