Nubar 2010

1 coat of Nubar 2010 with NARS Midnight Express, sunlight

Nubar 2010 is a clear polish filled with multicoloured duochrome flakies. On a blue base, I see mainly green, orange and yellow, with the colours changing depending on the light. The different flake sizes also make it interesting. Some are big, others are smaller.

1 coat with OPI Nicole The Grape Debate, sunlight

On a dark purple base, I see a lot more orange than the other two colours. Overall, it’s an incredible polish for layering and an interesting twist to just plain glitter. I’m beginning to like Nubar a lot, seeing as how the two polishes I have from this line are incredible.

Nubar can be purchased off eBay to Singapore at a reasonable price.

Orly Space Cadet

2 – 3 coats, sunlight

And I finally got my hands on Orly Space Cadet, the crown jewel of the Cosmic FX Fall 2010 collection! Containing a total of 6 polishes, each one of them flashes multiple glittery colours depending on how it catches the light. For Space Cadet, I see a lot of purple but there is also blue and green and pink as well. Three thin coats or two thick coats are needed to achieve opacity.

With Claire’s silver nail striper pen

Here are some silver stripes to make the manicure look more metallic and outer space-like. I’m digging this but it’s a little too crazy for work.

Liyen borrowed Space Cadet from me. A colleague said that her nails look like cockroaches!
