Polishgasm: Nubar Violet Sparkle


Bit of pic spam in this post. I bought this badboy at the Professional Beauty Show – Nubar were 3 for £10 which I consider pretty much bargainous. I’m not normally a big glitter fan, as you know, because I completely abhor the removal process (and then having little flecks of glitter stuck to your fingers until about 4 showers later), but I was really drawn to how beautiful this was in the bottle so decided it was worth a shot. A decision I do not regret!

Despite looking nice and dense in the bottle, there isn’t much of a base colour to this so it doesn’t work well on it’s own. You’d have to apply about 7 thick coats to get it looking anything like the bottle! So I layered it over a richly coloured purple shimmer – Models Own Purple Mystique. Two coats of that, and one coat of this. POW!

It becomes touch dry very quickly, but the glitter feels a little rough to the touch so I’d suggest a thick topcoat (or two coats of a thinner one) to give you a smooth glassy finish. Now I’ll be quiet and spam you with some photos! These are taken in a variety of lighting – outside in direct sunlight, inside in indirect light and so on. Plus the obligatory blurred shot to show off the glitter!

If you like glitter, and you like purple, you NEED this.

You can get Nubar polishes in the UK from Beautyshed.co.uk, they cost £8 each.

  1. What I do to avoid the layering and make it a “2-coater”, is I roll/shake the bottle very well beforehand. Then it’s gorgeous on its own too (as is the Fire Sparkle from the same collection)!:)

  2. WOW! Its such a beautiful colour! I know what you mean about the removal process though, I read a tutorial somewhere about how to get it off by soaking cotton pads in nail varnish then wrapping them round your nails, then wrapping them in foil. Comes off so much easier! xx

  3. This look gorgeous! I’m not a massive glitter fan either but then i see one like this and realise i’m easily swayed!! Love the rich purple colour especially. xx
