Nubar Modern Matte Collection: Swatches, Review
|Product: Nubar Modern Matte Collection, Nail Lacquer 0.5 oz|
|Buy it: Nubar Online|
This Fall, Nubar gives us Matte Mavens a couple different alternatives to the traditional glossy look. Modern Matte, one of their newest collections, is a small release of four stylish and sleek colors with a no-shine finish. Don't wanna splurge on an entire collection? No worries! Nubar offers a matte top coat that's a personal fave of mine called, V for Men. Stay tuned for a separate product review.
Each color is shimmer based, which I adore. And if you don't fancy matte textures, just slap on a shiny top coat and their just as spectacular - if not more! The application and formula was good - fast drying, smooth and opaque.
Check out the swatches!
Contempo is a classic red matte with shimmer.
Prevail is a gorgeous, deep purple matte with shimmer.
Advant Garde is a russet red/brown matte with shimmer.
Vital is a red/purple wine matte with shimmer.
Overall, Good Collection. Nubar mattes are versatile - you can wear them glossy or matte. The formula was smooth, opaque and as always Big 3 Free.
What do you think of Nubar's Mattes? Love them, Hate them? Have a great night!

Wow, these look simply gorgeous! I already own Zoya's MatteVelvet in Posh, which is similar to Contempo. However, I would definitely purchase the other three! Thanks for posting the swatches! Beautiful as always. :)

Prevail is gorgeous! I am new to your site, but I really love how you apply your polish! Can you do a how-to (if you don\\\'t already have one somewhere) of how you make it look so seamless?? I especially love how your polish looks at the edge of the cuticles!

Ooh, love those! I never thought I'd get into mattes with the first OPI flatte collection--if I wanted to buy one, I'd just as soon get some white-out, maybe dye it the color of my choice, and paint my nails with that. But I'm loving these new formulations of mattes that you've got here. I'm in fact planning on purchasing ALL of them if they come in a collection.
