Nubar "Stardust"

Happy Sunday, everyone!

We're supposed to have a high of 83* today! Relief! For the past month or so, we've had temps in the high 90's, even in the 100's! I'm opening the windows and screen doors today and am going to enjoy this to the fullest!

And later this afternoon, my mom and I have a date to go see "The Help". I've never read the book, but I've heard rave reviews about it and the movie. 

Today I wanted to show you all a recent purchase of mine from a blog sale. I bought 5 polishes all together: 2 Nubars ("Stardust" and "Iced Licorice"), 2 Nfu-Oh's (50 and 51) and 1 black label OPI ("It's Now or Never"). It's always fun to get polishes that are HTF or hard to get locally. Plus, who doesn't love some good 'ole NAIL MAIL?!

The first polish I decided to try was Nubar's "Stardust". In the bottle it almost looks coppery-orangey-taupey. Click here to see a picture of the polish on the Nubar store website. But on the nail, it's almost pinkish-coral. It's a pretty color, but I doubt I'll be wearing it again. Instead, I think it will end up going in the swap/blog sale pile.

Other than the color not being quite to my liking, the application was great! I liked the brush handle and shape; it was really easy to work with. And the brush it self was perfect and made application a breeze. Although I didn't care for the color, that won't keep me from purchasing other Nubar's in the future.

What are your thoughts on Nubar polish? If you own Nubar polish, what is your favorite shade? 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
