  • My next Nubar experience is this Lemon Sorbet shade taken from their pastel collection
  • For nail art buffs, I think most would find pastel shades to be off-putting because of their bad coverage, either too subtle a color, thin, or very thick and streaky
  • It would be easy to find a dead ringer of this nail polish because I know a lot of brands like China Glaze and Opi have come up with a similar shade
  • Despite the chipping, I thought the polishes on my nails retained a sort of ceramic sheen in them, very glossy

      I remember how I was won over by Nubar’s glitzy sparkles collection. I’m not really feeling for garish sparkles at the moment so I went for a pastel shade the second time around. My next Nubar experience is this Lemon Sorbet shade taken from their pastel collection. What enticed me to buy such a buttery yellow pastel was a runway look referenced after browsing the retrospective rag and bone collection a few seasons ago in style.com. The models sported this crayola-like pastel yellow in their nails which really zing out from the photo, even though, it was a chalky pastel. I cared less to satisfy my craving until I saw an

      identical color. For nail art buffs, I think most would find pastel shades to be off-putting because of their bad coverage, either too subtle a color, thin, or very thick and streaky. This kind of pastel however, is quite the exception.

      It would be easy to find a dead ringer of this nail polish because I know a lot of brands like China Glaze and Opi have come up with a similar shade. Its defining quality lies on its smooth application. Lemon Sorbet has plenty of white undertones in it which is the reason for its pastel hue instead of a mediterranean coral yellow. It’s easy on the eyes and eye-catching-ly fresh to paint on the nails. Other yellow pastels take a beating on the finish whose color seems to change once topped with glosser - it fares horribly natural and I recall my mom banning me from wearing yellow polishes because the tint, she says, gives my nails a dead discolored look. This one however, stays true regardless how many layers of fortifying top coats I brush over it.

      The color may be blinding under direct lighting but it differs from fluoro shades. It lacks the vivid saturation even if I go for 3 coats of this lacquer. But I’m already happy with 2 coats, I can achieve full opacity plus doing minimal layers also ...

      eschews the possibility of streaking. I was relieved that the application didn’t feel so tedious, almost exclaiming how fabulously easy it was and what a milestone in my experience of painting pastel polishes – I used to give up doing it, good thing I was the winner – and not the other way around. The lacquer’s yellow tint was discernible at the first coat, so I only had to add another coat to finish the color. It has the same glossy finish that’s remarkable about Nubar polishes, but I was glad it seemed fairly less difficult to apply compared to the brand’s shimmery lacquers.

      I’m also interested in purchasing the other pastel shades especially

      the pink-tones. It didn’t last more than a week. Despite the chipping, I thought the polishes on my nails retained a sort of ceramic sheen in them, very glossy. It’s well pigmented and doesn’t have a chalky, powdery texture. But I thought the color itself resembled a piece of yellow blackboard-variety chalk - that yellow coating wrapped on it. I will absolutely buy it again, rather the other pastel shades because of the tongue-in-cheek application. I think it costs 7 dollars. If you’re looking for a well setting pastel polish, then I recommend you check this out.
