I received an email from a PR, the day after the shortlist for the Marie Claire blog awards was announced, asking if they could provide me with a polish from the Nubar 'Polished Chic Collection' to wear to the awards. I hadn't tried Nubar before so I took them up on their lovely offer and the colour I chose was 'Vogue Vert' (perhaps a little bit of an oversight on my part considering the awards are being held by a rival magazine), which is described as a 'contemporary light green creme'.
The application of this was flawless for me, pretty opaque on the first coat and completely opaque by the second. It smells a little stronger than some of my other polishes but I was pleased to see it was missing some nasty chemicals and features the little 'cruelty free' bunny on the bottle. The bottle design is also great for someone clumsy like me; a sturdy, wide base and tight fitting cap. The official UK retailer is The Beauty Shed.
I'll definitely be picking a few of these up! Do you own any Nubar polishes and can you recommend some colours?
p.s. My boyfriend informs me this is a good dupe for Bianchi's Celeste Green...just in case you're looking to match your manicure to a bicycle company's trademark shade.
