Honest reviews


A gorgeous, deep blue

I know it’s a good color of polish when even my husband stops to say “Woah! I really like this one.” I bought this for two reasons – the primary being it is the perfect color for a galaxy manicure that I want to attempt, and the second being that it’s a Nubar. I’ve always been ultimately impressed with Nubar’s polishes, and I own quite a few. This is no exception! It’s long lasting, not harsh on my nails (3 free and VEGAN of all things!), and spectacularly pigmented (without staining my nails). I love it! Highly recommended.

Really Bad Copy of OPI’s Liquid Sand

Unlike some of the other reviewers, I found the color to be pretty dead on to the picture online, as well as the bottle itself. I wanted a dark “night” blue (hence the name), so that is what I expected, and what I received. This, unfortunately, is the only place where this polish lived up to my expectations.I didn’t expect the texture. The photo online gives the polish a smooth, glassy look. This is not at all how it comes out, as several other reviewers have noted. I’m a big fan of Nubar polishes, so I am pretty surprised at that.Anyway, this stuff bears a strong resemblance to OPI’s Liquid Sand collection from the outset. I have all of the colors from both of their (OPI’s) Mariah Carey and Bond Girls sets. I actually love that collection (obviously) and the texture doesn’t bother me – but it certainly isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.Unlike Liquid Sand, Nubar encourages a top coat with their Sparkle collection, and I always use their Diamont top coat. This definitely helped to relieve the dullness of the polish itself, but still did not deliver the shine as rendered in the picture, nor did it provide a smooth finish, the texture is still there. It also did NOTHING to prolong the manicureThe polish (with the top coat) chipped on every fingertip on the first day. By the second day 1/4 of a nail had come off completely and several other nails had more sizeable chips out of them. Every time I touched up a spot, another would could off. I am now on day 3 and my nails are a joke. I will have to remove the polish entirely tonight. The whole bottle will hit the trashcan and I will never buy another one from Nubar’s Sparkle collection again.I have used many other Nubar polishes and have been thrilled with their quality. I’m confused how this polish made it through quality testing.If you are looking for a deep blue sparkle polish that will (possibly) last you for just the night, no longer, feel free to take the chance on this stuff. If you expect to get 5-7 days out of your manicure…keep on looking

Color is Pretty, goes on very thick!

This was part of an order that was my first time using Nubar. Mostly I stick to Zoya or Color Club nail polish. As I stated in a previous review for another color in this brand:Formula is good ConsistencyYou can get away with Two coatsCons:This formula tends to thicken up the more coats you useColor was much darker than pictured, more like a Navy BlueBecause the Glitter clumps on your nails, It chipped a lot sooner!Finish is grainy and clumpy, I tend to like mirror smooth.

I love the color polish but as I tried it on it was light and very clumpy. I tried shaking the bottle but it still came out very clumpy. dissapointed.

Super Thick

Oh boy, where do I start. I love this color, and hate the application. It’s thick, gooey and difficult to work with. Will try to use thinner on it, it needs to lay down or you end up with chunky nail. I don’t like chunky nail. Nails should be sleek, perfect and shiney.

Quick dry

so I swatched this real fast on one of my nails and in no time at all it was dry. Seriously that fast, awesome! The color reminds me of the color of David Bowie’s jacket in the ballroom scene from Labyrinth. Which I love. Great color, goes on smooth and dries fast. You can’t ask for much more in a nail polish.

This polish is way lighter then I thought it was going to be it is really thin almost like its watered down! I guess if you layer it over a base coat it would work better but that’s not really what I got it for! I did not read the reviews first (my fault) so I don’t know if that’s the way it should be but I was not that thrilled with it!!
