Nubar Spring Garden Collection
Nubar: Pink Lily, Purple Aster, White Peony, Yellow Primrose

Nubar Spring Garden Collection: Part 2

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: Pink Lily (vibrant pink creme), Purple Aster (dusty pastel purple), White Peony (ivory creme), and Yellow Primrose (delicate pale yellow).

  • Pink Lily is a soft, pale pastel pink with faint white micro-shimmer. Two coats. It’s a little lighter than China Glaze Something Sweet.
  • Purple Aster is a warmed, pastel purple cream with faint white micro-shimmer. Two coats. It’s subtly warmer than China Glaze Light As Air.
  • White Peony is a soft, warmed ivory with faint white micro-shimmer. I used two coats and there was very slight visible nail line but it was nearly opaque. It’s a little whiter than Essie Marshmallow.
  • Yellow Primrose is a warmed, pale, pastel butter yellow with faint white micro-shimmer. Two coats. I can’t think of a dupe for this shade.

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.

Nubar Spring Garden Collection Swatches, Photos, Review (Part 2)

A-
These shades are all quite pastel, so they can be difficult to work with on deeper skin tones, which may give skin an ashy look (Pink Lily did this on me). The warmth in White Peony make it a wearable white, rather than the starker, cooler shade of white associated with corrector pens.
