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.

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!
