Inspired by the colorful play of light through a prism, those bands of light and color are embodied in nubar’s new Prism Collection. Each shade is filled with holographic glitter reflecting every color of the rainbow.
Last Summer, Nubar made our Dreams come true with a collection of eco-friendly greens. For winter, they fulfilled our sweet cravings with decadent Chocolate Truffles. Now, it's Holo-ific for Spring - Yes, Double Yes!!
Nubar introduces eight holographic glitters ranging from subtle neutrals to vivid pink to pale blue. We have a couple different types of textures in the Prisms collection. Some are smooth and fine, while others have large and chunky glitter. Either way, all colors are non-gritty to the touch.
Like most Nubar polishes, application and formula was pretty good. My average coats varied between two and three with the exception of Absolute.
Check out the swatches.
Absolute is a semi sheer, baby blue with fine holographic glitter. Even though this is somewhat sheer, it's a great alternative to OPI's pale Blue Lagoon. Very nice!
Gem is very interesting...Is it Grey or is it Pink? Well, a little bit of both. Described as duochrome-like, mauvey grey with medium holo glitter.
Brillant is a light pink with fine holo glitter. Another semi sheer, three coats for good coverage.
Prize delivers a punch! Boom, right in your face holo-tastic. A ruby red-pink filled with massive chunky glitter.
Spark is a neutral tan beige with fine holo glitter.
A girl can never have to many purples! Treasure is a light purple with fine holographic glitter.
Essence is a peachy pink with fine holo glitter. Nice, but nothing special...Moving on.
Jewel is one of my favorites from the collection. A little bit of charcoal, brown and taupe with chunkier holo glitter. Fabulous!
Will you be purchasing any of Nubar's Prisms Collection? What are some of your faves? Have a wonderful night!

I picked up Gem, Treasure, and Spark and they're in the mail now! I may have to get Prize, but I'll wait and see. I also ordered some of the Chocolate Truffles collection and can't wait for them all to get here!

Newbie here! I've looked all over the blog, but can't find it....is there a guide to how you take care of your nails? are they natural? what products do you use on your nails? I love the look of your nails and want to know if they are natural, acrylic, gel, etc. THANKS!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! My nails are natural. Along with tons of hand cream and lotion (I'm a moisturizer freak), I use Creative's Solar Oil and Solar Balm.

Jewel and Gem are my faves. I don't own any Nubar, but hope to soon.
