Nubar Chocolate Truffles Collection

    Good evening, Dear Reader!

    The UPS man dropped off a surprise for me today: Nubar's Chocolate Truffles Collection, which is shown as coming soon on Nubar's site. The collection consists of different shades and finishes in brown, and they all have matching chocolate candy names. I like Nubars and I like browns, so I was all excited and swatched them for you.

    These are all two coats, and only the last is a finished manicure with top coat. I'll start out with the two cremes, then the finishes get a little crazy...

    The lighter of the two cremes is Milk Chocolate Creme.

    The darker looks like my morning coffee when I put a packet of Swiss Miss into it, Swiss Chocolate.

    Now the finished start to get much more festive. Check out the glowy shimmer in Chocolate Caramel.

    Sort of duochrome-y with somewhat fine pink shimmer (caffeine?) is Chocolate Coffee Bean.

    A reddish brown with lots of fine shimmer, next is Cherry Cordial.

    Last, but very far from least, is Raspberry Truffle. This one is the full manicure, and is a dark brown loaded with red and pink shimmer. Here's Raspberry Truffle.

    I know that not everybody loves browns, but I do. You've seen a few brown cremes here lately, but I think the shimmers are what really stand out in this collection. My criticism of more than one recent brown shimmer was that the effect was too understated, and I certainly don't think that could be said of any of these. They really pop.

    That's all I have for you today, Dear Reader. Until tomorrow, love and nail polish to you!
