Nubar Reef Green

I had the same issue with my memory stick losing pics again. At this rate maybe i should buy that program for 30 bucks! Anyway the nubar reef green pics were recovered and therefore the quality is not as good as usual.

I haven't worn a green manicure so i felt it was time. I had a hard time picking which one so I enlisted the help of my husband. I narrowed it down to 5 and did a quick swatch of each one and had him choose. So i ended up with Nubar's Reef Green. I like this shade of green and love how it's got this metallic shine to it. But it was a pain to paint with because it is sooo streaky. I had to paint my one index finger 5 times to get it right!! The streaks aren't too noticeable when dry because of the shiny gloss it has. Lovely color but very difficult to paint with!

The five colors my husband choose from.
 Thumb to pinky: Zoya ivanka (2 coats), Zoya midori, Nubar Lime Green, Nubar Reef Green and Zoya Tangy.
The green and yellow stripes nubar nail art pen sunny yellow and mint
(cuticles look a mess because i had just removed previous polish and they look dried out because of the acetone)

  1. hey that's actually a really pretty green! though i can't wear greens like this because with my asian skin, it comes across as sort of sickly, and i stick to deeper ones like zoya veruschka. i missed out on zoya's sparkle and flash collection and was thinking about picking up a few; ivanka looks pretty sheer here though. still looks great on you as usual even so!=D

  2. I'm pretty lucky i could pull off just about any color, hah well at least i think so which means im sure there's colors i should stay away from, but i don't. So yah ivanka is very sheer. I just used 2 coats here to show my hubby the color, if i would wear it i would put on more coats or put it over a similar color so i wouldn't have to use up so much polish. I'm not a fan of visible nail line especially with these long talons i have, heh! it's really pretty though! Also a good one for layering since it has that sheer factor. Zoya tangy was also on the sheer side that might be 3-4 coats i used i don't remember.

  3. haha yay for VNL-hatred! i hate seeing a nail line even if the only way i could see it was extremely close scrutiny under the brightest lamp ever.xDDD and yeah i always envy fairer caucasian skin, which means being able to wear yellow, orange or brown without bringing out the grey in hands and making them look old and dirty... ._.

  4. Love Nubar polishes. Reef Green is just gorgeous. Like this manicure. Your husband has good taste. Greens are my absolute favorite shade of polish.

  5. Thanks for trolling the internet with your meanness , but sadly your hateful comment isn't even memorable.
