Inglot – #891

Monday, 3 May, 2010

When we moved to India, I was having a hard time finding polishes I liked. MAC was a bit too pricey for me, Chanel was just far too overpriced for my taste…that and I already had the colors.

Wandering through Saket’s Select City Walk mall – which, by the way, if you ever have the chance to go there, go…it’s insanely gorgeous and a fun place to be in – I came across a store called Inglot. The packaging for Inglot is similar to MAC’s – black with white lettering.

Inglot was my first introduction to matte nail polish in the fall of 2008, but that matte polish color will be for another post. This post is the silver metallic grey that caught my eye. I hope you can see why. When first applied, it went on a very dark gun metal grey then when it dried all the silver mega mini micro glitter came out to play. The pictures do not do this justice.

Inglot doesn’t have names assigned to their polishes…merely numbers. I purchased several bottles for myself and a bunch for my fellow polish friend back in the States.

Inglot’s an Eastern European brand and it’s really very pretty, but the colors and bases were definitely made with the eastern european skin tone in mind. A lot of the colors ended up being super bright and scary on me. I gravitated towards the ones that were closer to black, dark grey and dark blue.

You can now find Inglot in New York City located in Times Square, by the way.

Going Green!

Thursday, 18 February, 2010

Well, sort of.
I bought some nailpolish from Nubar ( the other day. I balked at paying so much for 8 bottles of nail polish…and only 6 were color. Hubby said said, “Just buy it. You’ll figure out if you like their products or not. You’ll learn your lesson or fall in love.”


Big time. Fell hard.

I now present Nubar’s limited edition Going Green collection…

Love this bangin’ shade of green. It’s got some gorgeous shimmer to it…it’s absolutely gorgeous and goes on like a dream. I did 2 coats and when the 2nd coat dried, it was a lovely finish. I topped off the color with some super shiny fast drying topcoat (Poshe) and this just looked like a million bucks.

This has love written all over it for me. When Urban Decay was doing nail polish, this was the color that was one of my absolute favorites. If I remember the color from Urban Decay was called Peacock…and this is pretty close to it, but the UD one had a bit more blue. This stays on this side of green. I love this color…I feel like I’m looking down on earth from outer space.

This is a gorgeous green and it reminds me of the Orly greens – Clinging Vine and Enchanted Forest. It’s a lovely creme that is like butta…

Move over China Glaze’s Emerald Sparkle, I’ve found your prettier, younger sister. Less streaky and less frustrating to work with, this girl takes the cake. Plus, she’s not jelly based…she’s actually got some substance to her formula.Take that, Emerald Sparkle!

**** Now here is where Nubar totally makes me die ****

I die. Seriously. I. die. A freaking GREEN HOLOGRAPHIC? Even China Glaze didn’t have a green like this in their Kaleidoscope and OMG Collections. The closest they had was L8R G8R and that was more like a lemon quartz in color – freaking beautiful. However, there is no green holographic like this. *swoons*

I died with the last color, but Nubar seriously shut it down with this. It’s billed as a duochrome…and it sure is. It’s got some gorgeous pink-gold thang going on and then a pretty mossy green. It even looks good on my skintone, too! I just didn’t know what to say. I’m wearing it right now. I’m in love.

I loved the formula for all the polishes – it’s by far, the best formula I’ve ever used…Nubar is a total winner in my book and I’m a fan.
