Nubar Absolute

Nubar Absolute was released in spring 2010 as part of the Prisms Collection. It's a pale blue polish with a rather weak scattered holographic effect. I was on the fence about this polish for a long time, but I was recently able to swap for it, so here it is.

It's nothing super fancy when indoors, kind of a light silvery blue. But it does have that typical shimmery holo finish that I love so much. This is kind of like the light blue cousin of Catrice Dirty Berry in that way. I la-la-love the finish on these even when the rainbows aren't shooting off my fingertips. 

I took it for spin outdoors and it lights up in the sun. As I mentioned, it's a pretty weak holo effect. It's not one of those holoiest holos that ever holoed or anything, but it's quite lovely.

Like a lot of scattered holos, I found the formula completely fuss free. I did need to use three coats because it's rather sheer, but the color builds well with no streaking or other nonsense.

I love Nubar's brush as well. It spreads well and makes it easy to control the polish. I had barely any cleanup at all to do, which is always so nice. =)

And here's a macro shot of it in the sun.

All in all, I'm very happy with this baby. I really need to add more Nubars to my collection. Hope your weekend is going well, and thank you as always for stopping by my little blog!

Reminder: Only two days left to enter my giveaway!
