Today I am treating you to a real beauty. Nubar Indigo Illusion.
Yowza. Duochrome gorgeousness.
Gorgeousness, I say.
This is one of the prettiest duochrome polishes I have ever met. Now mind you, I don't own a huge lot of them but of the few I have, this one is an eye popper. I had this polish on the last time I went in to have my hair done and my stylist went crazy for it. I don't blame her, really. Nubar Indigo Illusion is a shifter with pink, purple, green, grey, blue, gold and a touch of bronze. It's crazy amazing, never looks the same, depending on the light and angle at which it is viewed. This mani was two coats and Seche Vite.
There are only four photographs in this post, It could have been fifty. This stuff looked different in every shot I took of it and, surprisingly, just about every photograph (except the ones in which my posed nails looked like drunken tombstones in a high wind) was a good one and could have been used. Strange. Really strange. I never get that many good shots. This polish is magic, gentle reader. Magic.
Anywhoozle, here's the pretty.
Look at that!
Look at it!
Just... Look at it!
As anyone who is familiar with Nubar knows, the formula on this polish is just about as flawless as it gets. It applies like a dream; it doesn't streak, bubble, run, pool, drip or drag. While I am definitely a wide, flat brush kinda girl, I like Nubar's round brush. It is a bit fuller, kind of mop-like and it conforms to my nails and makes application even nicer. Dry time for this polish is pretty close to stellar. It is dry to a gentle touch in moments, top a full mani with Seche Vite and you are out the door in very short order.
I was impressed with the wear time of Nubar Indigo Illusion. I wore this polish for a solid five days with mere minimal tip wear. The morning of the sixth day, it finally started chipping. While I was in the shower. What was up with that? Anyway, I was super impressed with how well it wore. If I get a solid three to four days out of a polish before it chips on me, I call that very good. Five days blows my little mind.
Nubar Indigo Illusion is a very special, beautiful polish and if you like duochromes, it is definitely worth acquiring and adding to your stash. I found mine on Amazon, you can get it here on Nubar's website and I imagine that various brick and mortar stores have it as well as E-Bay? No. I am not going to search E-Bay. That place gives me the heebie jeebies. You can go on over there by yourself. Just don't come crying to me if something jumps out of the bushes and eats you while you are there.
So, what do you think of the oh-so-gorgeous Nubar Indigo Illusion? Do you own it? Are you now craving it? Please do tell, I'd love to hear with you think.
Okay. Must run. I have stuff to do. Did you know that Facebook is a big fat poopy-meanie-head? I want to change my fan page name to match my new blog name but because I am over 200 Likes, I can't. I will have to kill my page and start a whole new one. Months of work on that page down the drain. Thanks a lot, Facebook. Way to run a business, there.
Thank you for popping in and reading and putting up with my whining. Have a great Wednesday and may your polish never bubble.
