Quick Glitter Gradient

Glitter gradients always look lovely & take very little time to accomplish. Definitely my go to look when I want a little bit of bling in a hurry. This version started with Essie Limited Addiction, then I topped it off with OMG Gorgeous from The Painted Nail By Nubar.

OPI Pink Shatter, Two Looks

I still love crackle polishes & I probably always will. I rarely keep my nails the same for more than 3 days in a row, but occasionally I just don't have time to completely start fresh. If my nails are looking chipped or have tip wear & I'm in a rush, I always reach for a crackle. They dry quickly, are virtually foolproof, & easily cover any wear that I want to hide.

That being said, OPI Pink Shatter didn't win me over on my first try when paired with The Painted Nail by Nubar OMG Gorgeous. It dried matte & just seemed kind of weak & washed out. The formula was fine but very sheer for a crackle.
I wanted to give it another try before I gave up on it & I'm so glad I did. I layered it over Maybelline New Year's Blues with almost no expectations. The results were quite amazing. I think this combination would be a good start for some galaxy nails which I still haven't successfully done yet.

The Painted Nail By Nubar OMG Gorgeous

I won The Painted Nail by Nubar's OMG Gorgeous from Rin's Nail Files. Another great example of why I love giveaways! I would never pickup this polish for myself; I just don't think of myself as a glitter fan. OMG Gorgeous is a great polish though & I'm glad I have it.
 
Pictured is 3 easily applied coats. Bright purple round glitter in a clear base. I took lots of pictures in full sunlight & the shade. Pretty polish!

New Favorite Manicure OF All Time: Zoya Lolly & Nubar 2010

Here's a ton of pictures of my new favorite manicure of all time. Two coats of  Zoya Lolly & one of Nubar 2010. Totally unexpected since it's pink and I usually gravitate toward less traditional colors. I wore this for almost a whole week!
A shot of the flakies looking green!
What's your current all time favorite manicure?

Nubar 2010

Nubar 2010 is my first Nubar! I found it at my favorite crazy nail polish store in Tulsa for only $4! It works best as a topcoat & I hear that it's a dupe for Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure.
First we have one coat of Nubar 2010 over the amazing Fuggen Ugly from ManGlaze. I love it!
Next we have one coat of Nubar 2010 over the amazing Pure Ice French Kiss! This was taken in the shade. I love this too!!
And last but certainly not least, we have two coats of Nubar 2010 over Zoya Stacy! Super gorgeous and perfect for fall as it makes me think of autumn leaves. Below is a picture taken in the shade. So amazing!
I tried Nubar 2010 over a couple of lighter colors and didn't really like it much, but who cares it looks lovely over darker shades for sure!

What's your favorite flakie? I would Love to have some of the NFU-OH flakies!

Nubar Reef Green


This is 3 coats of Nubar Reef Green. It's a frosty lime green that leans a little blue. Nice formula but not very flattering on me.
