Nubar Jellybeans – Spring 2012

I really like pastel colors so I was excited about Nubar’s Jellybeans collection. Once I saw the polishes, they reminded me more of Jordan Almonds rather than Jellybeans. I ended up purchasing three shades before getting the full collection. There were other shades that I found too similar to other colors in my collection so I passed on them for now. Since my camera has been so finicky, I determined that the only way it will sort of focus is under direct and bright sunlight. Go figure. Anyway, here are the swatches for the three polishes I purchased.

This one is so aptly named. It remind me so much of the flesh of a kiwi that I wanted to whip out my nail art stuff and paint little black seeds all over my nails. I don’t have a similar color in my collection so I’m happy I got this. The only thing I didn’t like was how sheer this polish is. I had to apply 4 coats and the last one was on the thick side. Normally, I hate polishes that require more than 2 coats, but I’ll let it pass this time.

I loooooove this one! It reminds me of the blue raspberry ICEE’s that I used to beg my mom for when I was a kid. The formula on this was also super sheer. Is this going to be the norm for this collection?

Baby poop. Is there any other way to describe this color? I actually do like it because it’s one of those ugly pretty colors. I don’t have any similar colors in my collection. This one was opaque in two coats.

I will definitely pick up a few more colors because I love the shiny almost-jelly finish. Why do the nail polish Gods have to do this to me!? Are you going to get any colors from this collection?

Bisous mes chéris et à bientôt!
