Nubar: Baby Sprout, Blue Hydrangea, Earthen, Honeysuckle
Nubar Spring Garden Collection: Part 1
Nubar Spring Garden Collection ($7.49 for 0.50 fl. oz., each) includes eight color shades, plus a glitter top coat (which I will review tomorrow, separately from the colors). This post features: Baby Sprout (soft pastel green), Blue Hydrangea (muted pastel blue), Earthen (subdued earthen gray creme), and Honeysuckle (cheerful honeysuckle).
- Baby Sprout is a really pale, pastel green cream with the faintest hint of white micro-shimmer. Two coats. The only shade I have that comes close is China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, but it is much, much darker and less pastel–mintier; I wouldn’t say they’re similar at all, brighter than Rescue Beauty Bikini Bottom.
- Blue Hydrangea is a softened sky blue with faint white micro-shimmer. Two coats. It is bluer than China Glaze Moody Blue.
- Earthen is a lightened cement gray taupe with faint white micro-shimmer. Two coats. It is lighter than MAC’s On the Prowl.
- Honeysuckle is a brightened medium-dark pink cream with a bit of a jelly-like finish. Two coats. It reminded me of Chanel Riviera.
my thoughts on the formula: The formula on these was a little thicker than I expected, but it was also quite pigmented. They applied smoothly, without bubbling, and two coats was perfect for opaque color on all four shades. I typically get a week of wear with Nubar’s polishes.
