nubar Modern Mattes at Getcha Nails Did

Brooke at Getcha Nails Did reviewed nubar's Modern Matte Collection with some of the most detailed pictures of them we've seen, and she was impressed. Brooke said, "These all applied like butter and did dry quickly, but not so quickly that I felt rushed while applying." Here are some highlights of her photos.

Of matte nail polish in general, Brooke tells us, "I myself, was not real keen on the mattes...I must say - these mattes have really grown on me. I do think part of it is though, the great colors that nubar picked." Of the collection, she says, "Everything about these say FALL to me," and goes on to suggest to her readers, "If you are on the fence about mattes, I would definitely suggest trying out nubar's Modern Matte Collection."

Her full review is available at Getcha Nails Did, and nubar's Modern Matte Collection is currently available at

WhoWhatWear: Scarlett Johansson & nubar Green Tea

When coming up with an ideal style for Scarlett Johansson, the editors of WhoWhatWear chose nubar's Green Tea as a perfect compliment to the look they'd create. In addition to being the perfect shade, nubar's vegan and cruelty free formula seems appropriate for Ms. Johansson.

"Though this shade might not seem like an obvious choice, we think it works for a number of reasons. First of all, green polish had serious presence on the fall runways (jade at Chanel, forest at Vena Cava). Secondly, we imagine that Johansson would approve of nubar's cruelty-free vegan formulas. Finally, the quirky color is just the sort of slightly subversive subtle touch we've come to expect from the actress."

She is especially fond of Conserve,

and she compared Forest to a polish costing more than twice nubar's $7.49, and Forest came out on top.
