Amor de Lacquer: Nubar’s Going Green Collection

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to

Oh. My. Goodness!! That’s it. Nubar has done it. This is probably one of the most creative and beautiful collections I have EVER seen. I’m not kidding. Nubar’s Going Green is so appropriate with the “green” trend we’ve been seeing. And every single one of these greens are highly unique and just gorgeous!! Nubar’s polishes are free of DBP, formaldehyde and toluene.


Nail blogger extraordinaire, Scrangie and I were talking about how fabulous this color is. It’s a holo!! Next to creams, holographic polishes are my favorite kind of polishes. They look like….unreal. Reclaim is absolutely flawless. It’s like a rainbow is trapped in a grass green polish. It has serious bling!


Wow….I have no words for this color. It is incredibly unique. You can’t tell me it isn’t. At a first glance it may look gold. But look closer, darling. It’s green! It looks like golden mustard mixed in with pea green. It is two steps down from a holopgraphic polish and I love it. I have never seen any colors like it.


I can’t get over how dead on Nubar’s names for these polishes are. Forest really does remind me of….a forest. Aaand, it’s a cream! A beautiful one at that. Look how shiny it is without a top coat. This is a perfect green. It reminds me a lot of BB Couture’s Poison. But they aren’t twins because Poison is a little darker.


Yes, Greener gets more photos because I think it just looks fan-friggin‘-tastic on my nails. Some colors make your nails look…..amazing. Greener is one of those colors. The only other emerald green that I have that come come close to this one is Sinful Colors’ San Francisco. Emerald green polishes=love.


“What is Earth you say? It is the place where we rise and fall each day.” –I wrote a poem titled Earth when I was in the 6th grade. That poem was so amazing that I performed it in a contest. Ahem, that I lost. But I digress. Earth is a hunter green with neon blue undertones. That I like. It’s an unexpected kind of green but it definitely holds its place in the collection.


Wow! I am just shocked at how different all of these greens are. Conserve almost looks like a lighter version of Earth. Almost. Conserve also has some blue undertones albeit not neon blue like Earth but I love the shimmery effect it gives.

I can NOT believe this collection. It’s just….wonderful. Nubar thought this one out. There is a green for everyone! I would have liked to see a neon green just for fun. Or maybe even a green glitter. I would love to see a “Going Green Again” collection. LOL! Great great job, Nubar! Fantastic! Amazing!

The application for each was good. Forest gave me a few issues with wanting to drag at the cuticles but that is the case with most creams. I forgave him after seeing how beautiful he was. Two coats should do you good although I looooved Wildfire with three coats. I love that this collection has a base and top coat.

I really am a Nubar fan. The polishes don’t smell as bad as most polishes. And they dry hella fast! You can get the entire collection here for $49.95 or purchase single bottles for $7.49. They are highly recommended by me! Expect to see more Nubar in the future. I am soooo eyeing the Pastel Fever collection and the Cleopatra Collection. An entire collection of purple polishes? *faints* Nubar, you have my heart.

Ever try any Nubar polishes? Which green is your favorite?

    Gah, all the reviews I'm seeing of this collection are making me want the whole thing! I've accumulated so many greens though that I'm trying to talk myself into only getting the holo. Your nails look amazing.

    I love Nubar. Indigo Illusion is a fave… they have great duochromes.
