I decided this week that it would probably be a good idea to swatch my entire nail polish collection. I really got into nail polish last year, and when I ‘get into’ something, I tend to go overboard right away and buy a lot of said thing really fast! That being said, I have collected quite a few polishes in the last year, and tend to just swatch them on a random nail board, put them on my nail rack.. and there they sit. I have a few that I use more often than the rest, but there are a lot that haven’t really even been worn besides once or twice, if that! I decided that it wouldn’t be a bad idea to swatch all my polishes, so I’m doing it by brand!
First I wanted to share was my polish collection from Nubar, as it is by far includes some of my favorite polishes! I was always a bit weary about buying Nubar polishes, because they’re a bit expensive, but I’m glad I did!
Fire Sparkle, Petunia Sparkle, Meadow Sparkle, Sky Sparkle
Night Sparkle, Hyacinth Sparkle, Star Sparkle
Prize, Essence, Brilliant
Treasure, Absolute, Spark
Gem, Jewel, Gold Leaf, Reclaim
Greener, Purple Beach, Peacock Feathers
I’m sad you can’t really show duochrome in photos, because Gold Leaf, Purple Beach, and Peacock feathers are all super cool polishes with weird, awesome duochromes. Gold Leaf has a nice almost cranberry duochrome to it, purple beach seems to have a greenish duochrome, and Peacock Feathers (the coolest one of the three) is purple, or green,or blue (its definitely WAY more purple than that picture is making it look!!)
I also realized as I grabbed these off my polish rack to put the names on here: I didn’t swatch the COOLEST sparkle one of all: Violet Sparkle! It’s a true, bright purple, with so much sparkle. It’s SUPER pretty! Guess this means I’ll have to buy some more Nubar shades to start another nail swatch wheel :)
