Color me 85 shades of wrong…but I don’t mind. How did I discover I was wrong? Why, I did a cray cray comparison, of course! See below for my insanity.
Formula was good – it dried quickly and was opaque in 2 coats despite my heavy handed tendencies.
So I left out OPI on the picture, but it’s there. FYI: Middle Finger = Nubar’s Raspberry Truffle, Ring Finger = OPI’s Tease-y Does It and Pointer and Pinkie finger = Femme Couture’s Red Caviar. RC has a very pretty subtle shimmer you can’t really see and it barely hints at a shimmer on my pointer finger.
Ah, now you can see the shimmer in the pointer finger, but it’s still incredibly subtle, isn’t it? RT and TDI are practically dupes! Just a reminder: Middle Finger = Nubar’s Raspberry Truffle, Ring Finger = OPI’s Tease-y Does It and Pointer and Pinkie finger = Femme Couture’s Red Caviar.
This Friday Red post is a lot more subdued than the others I’ve done, that’s for sure.
This is part of Nubar’s Fortress Collection – a collection I loved, but could only truly wear 2 of the colors. The formula was great! Dried in record time and was opaque in 2 medium coats.
Ok, so for once my desire to constantly edit didn’t stand in the way!
What was cool about this purple is that it’s like a royal purple – very pretty and very flattering. Tossed into all of that is this nutty sparkly glitter. I don’t know where this all came from, but I’m suddenly having a huge love of purple nail polish. Like I don’t understand why when I normally never gave purple a second glance. Lately, I’ve been gravitating towards purple and I’m a bit dismayed/puzzled by my choices.
Oh well, I won’t dwell on it, but I do know that I love purple polishes now.
Ka-ching! Check out the Purple Rain Glitter goodness. Of course, I did have Prince’s Purple Rain running in my head as I was applying this color, but only because I’m so utterly predictable.
Sunlight, once again, shows my deficiency in polish application. I wish I weren’t so heavy handed!
Wimpy macro shot
Meh. I think in my excitement I did a bad application and you can see VNL.
It looks decidedly vampy on me, doesn’t it? Like I said earlier, I can’t miss my old Chanel Rouge Noir when all the vampy colors are out and killing my lemming for it.
What do you think?
Looks flawless here.
Flawless? Not so much.
Nonetheless, this polish is beautiful…and I’d recommend it to anyone because it is a gorgeous purple in its own right. Please excuse tip wear – I had been wearing this color for a few days before I snapped the pics. Furthermore, I apologize for the misspelling of Moonshadow on the pics. I had done this a while ago and had thrown away the .psd for it.
It looks raspberry-ish in this shot, but it’s really a lovely purple.
Extreme shot and angle of MS to get the duochrome.
Hai, sun. You washed out the duo chrome!
Not sure when this came out, but I happened to find it while browsing the duo chrome section on Nubar’s site.
Formula was a bit on the thin side and I had to do three coats to get it opaque because I didn’t think this was a sheer color.
