Nubar Yellow Primrose

Yellow Primrose, from Nubar’s 2011 Spring Garden collection, is a pale buttery yellow creme with the faintest of all shimmers (I couldn’t see it, but Alicia, who detests shimmer, spotted it with her eagle eyes). The colour is super gorgeous but application leaves much to be desired. This is actually a three-coater because two thin coats leave behind some bald spots. But because I hate applying three coats of anything, I chose two careful thick coats instead. As you can see from the photo, it’s still not perfectly even though. Nonetheless, the colour is absolutely stunning and reminds me of vintage lace.

I bought this off eBay. I don’t think Nubar is available in Singapore and its online store only ships within the US.

Lydia’s nails, with China Glaze Wagon Trail, Nubar 2010

Lydia wanted to hid the roundness of her nail tips, so we decided to go with a blackish-colour triangle design. I used Nubar 2010 (which contains pretty duochrome flakes suspended in clear polish) over Wagon Trail to create more depth. You can see the green, yellow and red glowing prettiness most clearly in the third picture.

This is my favourite nail art design with Yellow Primrose.
