Nubar ~ Fire Sparkle

Nubar ~ Fire Sparkle
A Christmas red with micro and medium sized red glitter

This reminds in many ways of “Ring in the Red” is from China Glaze. It’s Christmas red, it’s glittery and it’s sparkly. But there are differences, though.

The Nubar is a more “delicious” polish to apply. It’s smooth, both when you apply it and when it’s actually on the nail. Much smoother than China Glaze.

Here’s three coats and a layer of Poshé top coat: 

It’s not as “wild” as Ring in the Red, it’s more sophisticated in a way. I can’t describe it any other way than that. It’s beautiful! Although having said that,
I don’t really prefer one over the other. They’re both good polishes!

I was up for something more, so I stamped the nails with the heart design from Bundle Monster’s BM03. 

I stamped with Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri in the dark green “Jumpin’ Jade”. That turned out looking black on the red glitter (I probably should have guessed), but I quite like it anyway.

Opacity: 8/10
Colour, prettiness: 9/10
Durability: 8/10
Value for money: 9/10
Overall: 8.5/10

  1. oooh I love this, love Nubar anyway but I haven't seen this glitter before, looks lovely. Have you tried their 2010 top coat?It is a flakie and gorgeous!

  2. No I haven't but I'll definitely look for it now, thank you. :)

  3. This is really pretty! I need to try that design!

  4. I'm happy that my stamping is improving just a little bit - so the design looked somewhat clearer than last time. :)

  5. I love red, I love glitter and I really like your mani. :)

  6. Thank you very much. I'm also a bit in love with glitter. :)

  7. That red glitter is SO beautiful!
