I am back today with an awesome polish. Nubar released the “Going Green” collection in 2009. I love green polishes and I want to get all of them from this collection! Not to mention, it has a positive theme of recycling and going green. I think that’s cool, and I try to do my part with that.
This is my first experience with Nubar. I have been meaning to explore this brand, but ordering online is slightly annoying (that $5 to $7 in shipping is basically another polish I could have bought! I’m frugal.) but this month I am making an effort to expand more with brands.
Anyway…a green holo. What doesn’t sound great about this polish? Even in the shade and indoors this polish still has holo going on, though it’s not as loud as it is outside. But the color its self is a really nice medium green. Sort of a grassy natural green. It’s pretty on its own. But in the sun this holo is awesome!
The best! It just looks great. Most of the holos I have are more on the girly side. Pink, purple, etc. So this is a nice change. It’s still got that great rainbow holographic sparkle, but it’s a green. So it sort of balances the bright rainbow with a more earth toned sort of color. A little masculine.
It’s just so pretty and cool. It’s a great holo. Sometimes holos can let you down, and this one clearly doesn’t. It’s also just a really nice spring time color. And I guess not to mention a good St. Patrick’s Day polish (it is March 1st..somehow)
The formula on this polish was really manageable and easy to work with. At first when I took the brush out of the bottle and saw it, I though it was going to be a little thick. It looked as though it was going to be on the brush. But when applied to the nail, it was slightly thin, which I like. It was easy to apply and was very smooth. I only needed two coats for this wonderful outcome!
Where to Buy: Online Retailers / $7 ish
Do you own Reclaim or any other polish from the Going Green? If so, what’s your favorite? I want them all!
EDIT: I am very sad to say that this polish chipped horribly after I took a shower on day 2! Giant chunks chipped right off. Could be a fluke, but I wanted to enjoy this color for more than just a day. Don’t worry, I still love it and will use a different basecoat next time around!
