Femme Couture’s Red CaviarFriday, 24 December, 2010
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.

Nubar – Purple Rain GlitterMonday, 22 November, 2010
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!

Nubar – Midnight RendezvousThursday, 4 November, 2010
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.
