So, if you haven't already seen from the photo above, this is Nubar Reclaim. I got it off of Amazon with my Swagbucks money which = free for me :) This colour is the perfect green halo, not too yellow, not too blue. It has a rainbow of prismatic particles that reflect so beautifully in direct sunlight, but as you can see below under my desk lamp it is still quite pretty :)
Outdoors in the sun is where it really shines and that it why I decided to wear it, the weather is FINALLY summer-like and the sun is out a lot more these days :) Also, as soon as I got this polish in the mail I knew I had to try it out ASAP!
I don't know if you had noticed in my previous posts, but I have been referring to holographic polishes or "holos" as halos for the longest time. lol, I know, weird right. Where did I get halos from? I have no idea, but no one ever corrected me!
Ohh, the photo above is so aweome :) And it's only ONE coat! Just one. This polish is awesome! It applied so perfectly, I love the formula, the brush, the handle, EVERYTHING! The only thing I found kind of odd was the lable of the amount in the bottle ( 0.5 fl oz / 15 ml) when compared to lets say a China Glaze label (0.5 fl oz/ 14 ml) ... ummm ok?
Anyways, other than that little confusion I have nothing but love for this polish and I want more! but when do I ever not want more? The wear on this was FANTASTIC for only one coat, just a base and no topcoat originally ( and in these pics). Although I added topcoat to my left pinky to see if it dulled the holo effect and I don think it really did. I wore this polish for just under a week and had very minor tip wear. After a couple of days of wear I did some BM stamping and added a top coat over that, that may have helped it last a bit longer.
Yes, more pictures, there are lots in this post to make up for the lack of post yesterday, I totally forgot about it.
I feel like these pictures didn't capture the prismatic effect that much, I took these photos around 6 or 7ish as the sun was getting ready to start setting. I find when it is earlier in the day the effect is stronger. The effect is also present in indoor lighting also if you're wondering.
From the moment I saw swatches of this colour online I knew exactly what pattern I wanted to stamp over top. I'll show you which stamp I used tomorrow :)
