Amor de Lacquer: Nubar’s Fall 2009 Modern Matte 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 Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

Yesssss, more mattes. Am I loving this trend or what? I am having a ball reviewing collections from different brands. Everyone’s mattes are different and I have yet run into one that I didn’t like.

Nubar baby!!


You’ve seen me review Nubar before. Remember the Going Green collection? I am STILL in love with that Reclaim. Seriously the best green holo ever. Anywhoovers….let’s check out their mattes.

Prevail is one of those colors that you don’t see everyday. It’s very interesting. Like a dirty eggplant. Doesn’t look too matte-y though. Which is fine with me because it’s a funky and unique color anyway.

Oh wow….now I can get down with this. Contempo would be pretty boring if it wasn’t a matte. But since it is, it kinda rocks. It’s like a pearlized velvety tomato. I love it!

Vital is cool. Nothing spectacular. I didn’t think about it then but it would probably be insane with a glittery topcoat.


How ’bout Avant-Garde or Avant-Gorg! I love the way this baby pops on my skin.


Nubar’s mattes remind me a lot of Zoya’s mattes. They’ve got that velvet-y thing goin’ on. I’ve learned to appreciate mattes like this. They aren’t super super matte but are shiny enough to appease even the most anti-matte chica.

My only issues with these is that they are a bit of struggle to remove. And yes, like most mattes—you’ll see chipping after a day or so. But I love ‘em so much that I don’t even care.

You can snag these darlings here. Only $25 for the entire set. Not bad at ‘tal!

Whatcha think?

    I didn't think I would go for the matte look but surprisingly I like them. I have a few orly's and Opi matte suedes. I even found some old maybelline mattes at the dollar store. Your nails are looking good and good application :D

    Prevail and Avant-Garde look gorgeous. I never liked the matte look but you're right, these definitely have just the right amount of shine. Lookin good!
