Nubar Night Sky

It’s a Matte, but Shimmered… Night Sky!

Nubar Night Sky Collection ($24.95) is a short ‘n sweet collection featuring three shimmer mattes and their Diamont Seal & Shine Quick Dry Top Coat.

  • Midnight is a deep charcoal-black with silver-gray shimmer. Two coats were enough for me to get complete, opaque color.
  • Twilight is a bright silver-gray with silver and darker silver shimmer. Again, just two coats here.
  • Sunset is a gold shimmered amber-copper base. Like the other two, I found two coats were the right mix for opaque color. I really liked this one with the Diamont top coat.

The formula was fantastic — they dry quicker than the regular polish, but I had enough time to lay down a coat and move onto the next without it drying before then. They were also really opaque with each only needing two coats to cover my entire nail completely. The consistency was on the thinner side, so it was easy to apply and get the amount you needed. The colors themselves are a bit basic, but I’ll be crossing my fingers they’ll release some other shades down the road.

    Kind of reminds me of Chanel Noir Ceramic.

  5. Mandy

    Hi,

  6. Alma

    This really is beautiful!
    Are the suedes of OPI comparable to these?

    Does anyone know where I can get this brand in Canada? (Or a website that’ll ship to Canada reasonably?)

  8. aida

    sunset reminds me a bit of Mac originality, are they similar?

  9. these are really pretty, but they remind me of the orly collection that came out last fall – it had matte shimmer finishes as well. I picked up an amazing one – glam rock – that looks like midnight from nubar

    • Yeah, both Orly and Zoya have similar (not 100% the same, but similar) shades, but I really like the formula on the Nubar ones a lil’ more – so I do hope they release some new, unseen shades!

    I’m going to have to pick up Midnight because it looks so much like Chanel Noir Ceramic (which was introduced in like 2007, I believe it was LE, and my bottle is running low) but with more shimmer.

  11. Happy

    Very nice. Thanks for sharing. But ever since I heard of CND’s shellac mani I cant think of any other polish…

    LOVE LOVE LOVE these!!! Do you know if they’re available in Sephora? I might go there in 2 days and it’s time to indulge myself a bit!

  14. Vanessa

    These look awesome! I really just want Midnight.. I love dark, vampy colors!

    Anyone know if Twilight and MAC Studded are dupes?

  16. amy

    Midnight and Twilight is just right down my nailpolish alley!

  17. I’ve never heard of this brand before, but I love that color “Midnight!” It’s a fun twist on basic black, which is what I usually wear. I just might have to try it out :)

  18. Steph

    Nice! I wonder how Midnight compares to the black polish in Alice + Olivia. Also, Twilight reminds me of MAC Studded…

  19. linda

    I think I’ll be lemming midnight now…
    How is the wear though? for example OPI suede has terrible wear. On me it starts to chip on the second day or so.
