Fall 09 Collection: Nubar Royal Gems
|Product: Nubar Royal Gems Collection, Nail Lacquer .5 oz|
|Price: $49.95/set or $7.49/ea|
|Buy it: Nubar|
After the spectacular summer collection, Going Green, Nubar swings forward into Autumn with seven new shades inspired from the richness and luxuries of the finest jewels around.
The Royal Gems consists of Platinum, Gold, Sapphires, Rubies, Emerald, Amethyst, Tiger's Eyes and the queen of the crop, Tiara - a dazzling multi faceted glitter that can be worn alone or layered over any nail polish for that extra sparkle, bling baby!
With the exception of Tiara, most polishes from this collection are shimmer based with glitter. The application is like most Nubar shades, full of opaqueness and only requires two to three coats for bottle color.
Let's get down to business!
24K is a semi sheer, vivid gold with gold glitter.
Tiger's Eye is a brown red with shimmer.
Platinum is a white silver with silver glitter.
Ruby is a ruby red with red glitter.
Emerald is a gorgeous green with glitter.
Sapphire makes this virgo proud! A gorgeous blue with glitter.
Amethyst is a royal purple, almost blurple with glitter.
Tiara looks great both ways - alone or layered over any nail polish.
Overall, good collection! A variety of seven rich, jewel-toned hues to choose from. Each color applied well in 2-3 coats. And as always, the formula is Big 3 Free.
What's everyone's favorite? Hope your having a fabulous week!

Your swatches don't look gritty unlike swatches months ago from other nail sites. Now I don't know if I want this or not. At first, I was excited. When I saw early swatches I got disappointed because they look gritty and rough. Now, I'm confused. Is it the application, the lighting or what?

The collection is a bit on the semi gritty side, but it wasn't a big deal for me. I found Emerald to be the most noticeable; still not like a standard glitter. A top coat of Seche or Posh should do the trick!

The Sapphire is my favorite followed by Emerald. I think I've seen most of these colors before. I just re-organized my polishes and don't want any more near dupes.
