Nubar East of Eden: Moss Mistress, Wild Blue Yonder & Calla Lily Caramel

Hullo dears!  Here's an early evening post for you to enjoy!  Nubar is a great brand with a large selection of gorgeous polish!  My first experience with Nubar was the amazing Reclaim, green holo amazing-ness.  But since then I have tried a few more and all the Nubars I have tried were stellar.  The ones I'm sharing now are no exception.  Colors and formula are top notch with this brand.  You can follow Nubar in several places: Facebook, Instagram (bynubar) and you can purchase at the website bynubar.com.  All 3 of these are from the summer 2013 collection, East of Eden but I think they also make great Fall colors!  


Up first is Moss Mistress.  Moss Mistress is a chartreuse colored creme.  It was a beautiful polish to work with, creamy and smooth flowing.  Application was really lovely.  My pictures are showing more of the yellow side - it truly is more green.  I used 2 coats and no topcoat.  Look how shiny this polish dries all on it's own!    


This blue beauty is Wild Blue Yonder.  This is a medium metallic blue with scattered holo sparkles.  It's very pretty and I love how the finishes play off each other to create a very subtle bling.  I used 3 coats here and you can see there is still a slightly visible nail line.  It was really only noticeable in some lighting.  WBY had a great formula and application was a breeze.  This one dries with a little grit so use topcoat if you like smooth nails.  I did not use topcoat.  


Finally I have Calla Lily Caramel.  This was my favorite of the 3.  The light caramel-taupe color worked really well with the red shimmer.  This one is very sheer to start and it had a tendency to pull up at the tips.  But after 4 coats and letting it dry completely I had a gorgeous color and great coverage.   I would suggest practicing patience with this one.  Again, super shiny finish and no topcoat was used.
