Nubar Finest Silks Collection Swatches and Review

Hi guys!  Nubar is releasing their latest collection called Finest Silks this week on October 15th.  Here are my swatches:

Organza 3 coats no topcoat.  This is a sheer pearly white frost.   I'm not the biggest fan of frosts because it just looks dated to me and it leaves brushstrokes.  The color is nice and bright tho :D

Here is 1 coat of Organza over a black creme.  It does leave brushstrokes so apply with care.

Taffeta 2 coats with Seche Vite topcoat.  This color reminds me of clay, also the flash brightened this shade up a bit so it's a little more dark in person.

Marabout 2 coats with Seche Vite topcoat.  A dark mushroom taupe, very wearable and a trendy color for the season (or anytime!).  Would you guys like some comparison swatches?  Oh that bald spot on my middle was totally my fault, I didn't like the imperfection in my gap so I tried to fix it on my 2nd coat but just ended up making it worse!

Chiffon 3 coats with Seche Vite topcoat.  A light taupe, again I think is very wearable by everyone.

Pekin 3 coats no topcoat. A bright red creme.

Moire 2 coats no topcoat.  A light reddish brown. Like Taffeta this one photographed a bit brighter so please note that it is slightly more muted and darker in person.

As soon as I saw this color I instantly thought of Color Club Best Dressed List from this year's spring collection.  I think it's similar but definitely not a dupe.  Gosh I have a bad eye lol.

Charmeuse 2 coats no topcoat.  A rosy creme.  I liked this one quite a bit.  It went well with my skintone and I felt more girly with it on. :D

Sateen 3 coats no topcoat.  I love my reds so this one was my favorite out of the collection.  This one surprised me by being slightly squishy!  In this photo you can see my nail line but in person you can't see it.


It's not a true jelly but you can see it's got a bit of squish to it.  Love it!

These all applied very well and most of them were opaque in 2 coats.  They also dry pretty fast.  I think this is a nice fall/winter collection.  Some of the colors may not be exactly new or unique but they are still great colors.  Are you guys thinking of getting any of these?

These shades will be available to purchase on their website here on October 15th.


This collection was sent to me for review.
