Nubar: Venetian Glass Collection, Part 2

Don’t forget to read Part 1!

All Nubar shades are free of formaldehyde, DBP, and tuluene–as well as the collection is vegan and cruelty-free. Nubar describes Caramello as a rich bronze, Oro as a deep gold, Verde as a unique dark green, and Vaso as a striking light purple.

  • Caramello is a rich, burning bronze with flecks of gold and copper shimmer. Two coats.
  • Oro is a bright marigold with gold flecks of shimmer. Just two coats, but there were some noticeable brush strokes.
  • Verde is a deep, dark forest green with flecks of green-gold and emerald green shimmer. I used two coats, but this is one shade that just one might have done just fine.
  • Vaso is a nearly metallic lilac with silver and lilac flecks of shimmer. This also seemed to show some brush strokes.

Verde is absolutely stunning. It is hands down my favorite shade of the eight! Amid such rich shades, Vaso seems out of place to me. My dear Italian readers, can anyone tell me why Vaso would be lilac? I Google translated, and I just got jar/vase as suggestions.  I kind of missed having a really lush fuchsia-purple or even a rich violet here.  It doesn’t make or break the collection, but just an observation.

Hmm, I did a search on Google, and couldn’t see it – was seeing glass objects of all colors! I was just confused over the name and its translated meaning more than the color choice, though.

I think the name is strictly for the meaning, as vases are one of the most common examples of venetian glass. I think the colors they chose for this colection are very appropriate as much of venetian glass is in shades of rich ruby reds, golds, ambers that look like they’re glowing, you also will find deep emerald greens and soft purples much like Vaso. I have to disagree with you when it comes to fuschia or much of a rich violet in examples of venetian glass, so even though those colors are pretty I don’t think they would be super appropriate for this collection. I personally wouldn’t mind seeing one of the orange colors replaced with a nice aqua, as you see ALOT of this color in Venetian glass and I think it would be super beautiful. I am really looking forward to this, the warm colors would be perfect for fall!

Nice! Beautiful photos Christine thank you! I had three in my cart but $13.40 for shipping sounds extreme. This is from someone who doesn’t mind a $23 polish price. I’d love to try this line but can’t muster up wanting $75 for the free ship minimum.

I totally understand! I refused to pay the high shipping, so I just stocked my cart instead, but when you’re buying the full collection to swatch ($50!), it doesn’t take too many extras to get to the free shipping amount. I figure if it’s $10-15 in shipping, why not get 2 polishes instead?!

Hello dear, I’m an Italian reader who actually live in Venice.
So, yes, vaso means vase, but you must consider that we are speaking about Murano glass. If you come to Murano, you can see wonderful glass-made pieces of EVERYTHING. One of the most famous pieces being lamp and vase. But being made in glass, you can find millions of colour shades. Actually, lilac vases are quite common!
Vale

There is a little too much orange in this collection for my liking, they could have skipped one orange and done another colour instead, but oh well !
Other from that side note, I like all of the colours with the exception of Vaso. Not liking it at all, I don’t know why …
Thanks for beautiful pictures Christine

I like all four colors, but there’s no way I could pull off Caramello and Oro with my very cool-toned skin. I agree with you, Christine, about Verde being the most exciting, and I believe I can wear it. Vasa looks almost like a foil in these pictures–does it look that way in real life?

I love all of these, but I don’t understand the glass-fleck formula. Is this something new in the polish world? It’s definitely not my mother’s nail polish! I was also concerned with wether we would be able to Konad these,but alas my fears were alayed, when I saw a post on Beautopia, with Verde konaded.

Christine, can you please name some examples of polishes that are glass-flecked within the past year,then? I am not picky, I just like being informed,and you do a very good job of keeping us informed. Thank you,sweetie!

wow…super pretty. I do have some dupe suggestions, though. Wet N Wild has dupes for Caramello, Oro, Verde for $1.99 each. They were buy one get one 50% off at cvs last week! Super pretty!!!

These are beautiful. I’m new to nail care stuff, and definitely appreciate your pretty pictures! That first polish will be MINE someday, hehe.
