Nails of the Day – Nubar Risque Reds and Fortress Collections
Beauty Shed very kindly sent me samples of their new collections recently, so I drafted in a volunteer so I could swatch two colours for you this week! First up, from the Risque Reds Collection, Torrid Red:
Lovely red jelly with a glorious gold shimmer shot through, it’s a little darker than it appears in these pics, and is all the nicer for it. Both pictures show two coats over a Mavala base, and with a Seche Vite topcoat. I could actually have got away with one coat, but I wanted to apply two, just to see how the colour came out. I’m glad I did. Formulation is a bit on the thick side for Nubar, but it applied and dried very nicely.
Picture of the ring finger there is a fairly accurate representation of how the colour looks in normal light. Just lovely!
And from the Fortress collection – which is a selection of all grey shades, which is fairly unusual in itself – I selected the one which looked most interesting, Silver Sword, which is a mid-grey metallic finish, and I got the lovely Kerry to be my hand-model for this one:
Above pic shows two coats with a top coat (think it’s from No. 17) application was good, and this is a lovely finish which doesn’t seem to be blighted with brush strokes.
Looking forward to trying this one myself, it looks lovely! I will bring you more shades from both of these collections next week.
Which do you prefer, the greys or the reds?
Nubar polishes are available from Beauty Shed, and cost £8 each.
The Small Print: I was sent this for review purposes, so I reviewed them. I’m nice like that 😉 All opinions are honest, regardless of the source.
