Go Green this Summer with Nubar
Happy Monday, Ladies! It's August and Summer has offically kicked in high gear with blazing temperatures. And what better way to cool off with Nubar's fabulous Going Green Collection.
If you've been reading the nail blogs, you know this collection is hot, sweet and just plain incredible for us green nail polish fanatics! Thank you Nubar for making our nail polish dreams come true!
The going green collection is a limited edition release consisting of six bodacious greens from crème to shimmer - to holographic to duochrome; whatever your preference.
A litte Nubar History, if your not familar with the brand. In 2000, Nubar was founded as the healthy alternative for beautiful nails. After being affected by cancer within his own family, Nubar’s creative force, Noubar Abrahamian, was uniquely committed to his role as a pioneer in producing the highest quality nail care products that were free of formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP (phthalate). These common ingredients are included in California’s Proposition 65, which lists chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, or reproductive harm, and nubar’s exclusive formula omits these components as well as their derivatives without sacrificing quality.
You guys ready for some swatches?
Introducing the first true green holo on the market, Reclaim. A light grassy green holo that screams hotness.
Forest, a rich forest green creme that's a tad bit lighter than RBL's Recycle.
Conserve, a gorgeous green teal loaded with glitter. A bit more green than blue.
Nubar has some amazing duochrome shades and Wildlife being one of them. A mossy green when applied at first that flashes bronze, pink and green at the same time. Wowzers!
Earth is a more blue version of Conserve loaded with glitter.
Greener is a rich, dark emerald green shimmer that's absolutely stunning!
Now let's talk about application...Perfecto, every single one of them! Even though I'm a die hard three coater, you could get by with two coats on each color.
The Going Green collection is still available online at ByNubar, don't miss out on this fabulous release. Have a wonderful night!

They're gorgeous! I like Forest best. But sadly, they don't ship to Singapore :(

Steph, Thanks for posting ...i love to see your swatches. I went to the website because wildlife, reclaim, and greener are really calling me. I wish they sold them individually. :(

I ordered my collection as soon as they came out. Green is my favorite nail color. Each one is more gorgeous than the other. I've only worn Wildlife so far. It's such an amazing shade. Everytime the light hit my nails I would have to stop and admire them!

Beautiful swatches, darling! I LOVE this collection. Of course Reclaim is my favorite with Wildfire coming in at a close 2nd.

Hi Skgoh, Thanks! That's such a bummer! :( Do you know anyone in the US that can send it to you? Hi Mrs. Tee, Thanks so much! Nubar does sell this collection individually, but it looks liks some colors are out of stock :) Hi Lucy, You lucky girl! Aren't they all amazing?! Hi Brittany, Thanks so much!! I really loved Reclaim too, I'm a holo fanatic! Thanks so much for the info Skgoh! Hi Judy, Oh man, you are going to love every single one of them! A big Kudos for Nubar! Hi Tessi, You would love them all! :)

I never had any Nubar polishes, but I bought that entire Go Green collection except for Reclaim (only because the eBay seller sold out at the time of that particular shade). Tried wearing Forest, and it's super gorgeous and you're right...it's the perfect formula that goes on like a dream! I'm very impressed by Nubar, and will definitely buy more. Hope they make even more greens - there can never be enough!
