Nubar 2010

PurchasedMyself

 

 

The one bit of good news that I got at my doctor’s office today is that I have an upper respiratory infection which doesn’t require any meds besides the usual OTC stuff. I am still pretty darn miserable right now and can’t stop sneezing and blowing my nose so I don’t know if I’ll be able to go to work tomorrow again. This morning I slept through my alarm so I didn’t even call in sick on time. I think I might have taken a wee bit too much Nyquil last night so I was knocked out cold. I’ve been so sick lately which is NOT normal for me. I have another appointment with my primary doctor on Monday so we can go over all my meds and see if anything needs to be changed. Since I finally got health insurance through work, I am going to get back on track with all of my meds so now I need to get myself ready for many rounds of bloodwork–my favorite! NOT! Anyway, I’m just glad I can actually go to the doctor again without it costing me an arm and a leg. Isn’t it sad how having health insurance feels like a treat? Everyone should have affordable health insurance…this topic just pisses me off so much so I’ll just drop it.

So the other day I was looking at some of my Nubars, and I realized that I had never really posted about my very first flaky polish ever: Nubar 2010. Oh the travesty! Let’s take a look at this lovely polish, shall we?

Morgan Taylor Lost In Paradise 1aMorgan Taylor Lost In Paradise 2aNormally, I like to layer Nubar 2010 over a dark base, but today I decided to try it out over Morgan Taylor Lost In Paradise. Have I told you lately how much I love Morgan Taylor Cremes? This one is so incredibly gorgeous!

Tomorrow I have another stamping mani to share with you so I hope that you stop by to check it out. I’m not feeling too hot right now so I’m going to cut this short. Thanks so much for the visit, and I will talk to you soon.

      I hate you. :P Do you have all of them? I am hoping that these last 3 days of rest will have me up and running for Monday because I just can’t miss anymore work.

    Such a pretty combo!
    Hope you’re feeling better soon! I just went through health stuff with bloodwork and needles and all that great stuff. It’s the worst!

    I own this polish as well… it was actually my second flakie, and I ordered it to replace my first, which was Essie Shine of the Times. It’s nice, but I really miss the Essie one… the flakes were bigger, and you didn’t need two coats to get good, even coverage. It just had a more apparent effect that was much more eye-catching. But 2010 is a fine alternative! It’s got the same kind of flakies… same color shift. They’re just smaller.

      I forgot about Shine Of The Times! I actually do have that one as well and you’re right…it is much nicer. I think the flakes might be a little more intense too, don’t you think?

    Omg – I am digging these colors! I must try this polish! I am always trying to find cremes with good formulas. That shot with flakes reminds me of opals.

    Feel better soon!

      Seriously….Morgan Taylor cremes are to die for. I can’t recommend them enough.

    No words! Too stunning! The nubar over that morgan taylor, I cannot get over it!

    1. 8 February, 2014 at 7:25 am

      I didn’t think it was going to look as cool because this nubar really explodes with awesomeness when you put it over a dark base, but I really ended up liking it here.

    Nubar 2010 was also my first flakie polish, and I also like to put it over a dark base. However, you have completely changed my mind. GOODNESS GRACIOUS, THIS IS GORGEOUS. I love it and will be copying it.
    Fingerpaints came out with new flakies recently. I saw them at Sally’s…and I think they’re two for one right now. Go git you some!

    1. 12 February, 2014 at 7:44 pm

      I’m gonna burst your bubble, but those new flakies are gross. Totally not worth it. :( I got excited because I missed the first flakies they put out, but the swatches I have seen are all disappointing. Oh well, better for my wallet.
