Why you ask...because I discovered after 3 days and a ridiculous amount of hours that I am not able to create my own website/store on a normal host site. How completely stupid do I feel! So now I have to go ask my Mother in law to do it for me. GAH! This is going to be so painful. I'm having to have someone build Evil Shades who thinks shorts that come above the knee are racey and thinks music is pointless! So I;m going to have to bit by bit explain exactly what I want all while she will be trying to get me to build a boring site for Granny's snoring cosmetics. I just desperatly hope it turns out tolerable and soon. I have to tranfer my domain name in the next 2 weeks. Oh this just is not going as I'd hoped!
Inspired by traditional Venetian glass, Nubar's Venetian glass collection captures the brilliant colors & flawless craftmanship of the ancient traditional handmade glass of Venice.With vivid hues, a strong glass-flecked shimmer, & rich color saturation,these shades are as memorable as their inspiration.
These have such a strong glass-fleck to them that they appear metallic. All of the colors a rich metal and jewel tones. All pictures are taken in a lightbox and are 2 coats with no base or top coat.
Bronzo is a bronze toned red
Vaso is a beautiful light pink toned purple
Oro is a deep orangey gold
Caramello is a deep smooth caramel bronze
Verde *swoon* is a stunning dark olive green with masive gold shimmer
Arencia is a vivid orange with yellow/golden glowy shimmer
Vino is a sexy vampy wine with copper shimmer
*I did squee when I saw this one*
a fabulous medium pink toned red with copper/gold shimmer
My final word: I think the collection is a huge win, the formula is lovely and it makes me look forward to fall!
**Products in this post were sent by the company/PR for my consideration
I love Nubar and this collection quenches my love of pastels!
Sold here for $49.95 for the entire collection or $7.49 for single bottles
Even the case is adorable!
All swatches are in natural light with no base or top coat.
You will notice in these pictures that my summer coloring is coming out.
My winter cool toned fair skin has been taken over by my Blackfoot heritage and the dirty, dark red has come through. The red and darkness will only get more so through the summer. (I do not spend much time out in the sun, nore do I lay out or try to tan) So if you are a red skinned person these swatches will be perfectly accurate for you. I know it is hard to find swatches for us Native skinned girls so I do hope these are helpful!
Oh Baby Pink! A sweet cottoncandy pink!
This one was a little thick and I did not have my thinner with me, but I'm sure it was due to the heat.
2 coats, no streaks.
Baby pink is the softest pale hint of pink.
Great formula streak free, perfect application in 2 coats.
Pink creme is perfectly bubblegum pink pastel.
This one was very nearly a one coater.
Orange creme, well the name says it all! Dreamcicle!
2 coats to creamy perfection!
Baby Blue is such a gorgeous pastel blue. Not so pale that it looks white, it is obviously blue in all light.
2 coats, beautiful application. Love!
Green Tea is an earthy sweet green like dried tea leaves.
I did not think I would like this color, then I put it on and oh yes it is beautiful!
This is one moderat coat and it needed nothing more.
Lemon Sorbet is a dreamy, delicious creamy pastel yellow.
This is honestly the best pastel application I've experianced!
2 thin coats and not a flaw!
Lavander is a stunning cool pastel lavander.
I adore this color, it is perfection in a bottle and was made for me!
2 coats though had my hand been steadier one would have done nicely.
This collection overall is stunning, fun and really has a nice variety. everyone can find their "color" in this collection. The formula is Nubar's normal awesomeness and I love Nubar's bottle design, it is perfect for a comfortable hold. I looked through my collection and found no dupes so if there are any similar shades I'm happy to compare them for you if I have them.
