Nubar Jellybeans Swatches

    Good afternoon, Dear Reader!

    I received samples of Nubar's Jellybeans Collection for Spring 2012, so I have swatches of them to show you.  They're all either cremes or jellies, but the jellies are not the super-sheer variety.  All eight colors were good in two coats, and the jellies stayed even and are super glossy.  For the swatches, each is two coats of color (no base or top) in sunlight, with the exception of one that I did a full mani with and I'll point that one out.  The color names are all flavor names that correspond to the color, like their Chocolate Truffles Collection had, which is kind of fun.  The collection will be available on Nubar's site on February 1st, so in just a few days, and they're $8 each.

    Strawberry is a cheery light pink almost-jelly, one of the work-appropriate shades.

    Toasted Marshmallow is a light caramel colored creme, and it fits in the least with the others for me, but it's another work-safe shade with the same super glossy finish.

    Cherry is a really bright orange red almost-jelly creme.  The shine on this one is outstanding.

    Blue Raspberry is a light aqua jelly, and the color is very even when applied.

    Kiwi is a pale spring green jelly, also unusually even.

    Lemon is an intensely bright yellow creme, and I was surprised it only needed two coats since yellows are typically fussier.

    Blueberry is a very vivid blue jelly, more vivid than my camera would pick up in any of the pictures.  It's this tone, but with an exclamation point after it.

    The one I'm wearing is grape, a purple jelly.  This one has base and top coat in addition to the two coats of color.  Dry time was better than average, and the shine is spectacular.

    I love the finish of these polishes, which is like that of the Nubar Jeans in that they're really even and super shiny, and I really like the sort of modified jelly opacity.  The colors largely strike me as just really fun for spring without being too outlandish.  It's a cool collection for me.

    Those are the Nubar Jellybeans and all I have for you today, so until next time, Dear Reader, love and nail polish to you!
