NOTD: Nubar Indigo Illusion

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 4 - 2011

It’s undoubtedly their duochromes that set Nubar apart from the competition and I’ve got a very pretty one to show you today.  Indigo Illusion is a liac/blue/green/grey infusion of colour that dances on the nails depending on the amount of light hitting it and from what angle it strikes.

Three smooth coats will ensure a fully opaque finish from a brand that is fast becoming one of my favourites.  No top coat in the above image either.

Nubar Indigo Illusion is available to buy online from BeautyBay.com and is priced at £5.50 with free delivery.

If you invented your own duochrome polish, which colours would you include?

    You know I am all about the duochromes, and I’m excited to see that a trend for them seems to be building lately. This one reminds me of OPI’s Not Like in the Movies, except that one has silver sparkles/microglitter in the mix too.

    If I could invent a duochrome (disregarding the laws of physics that determine which ones are possible) it would be orange and yellow on a navy blue base.

    So pretty! I couldn’t decide if I wanted to try any Nubar nail polishes or not, but now I definitely do! That one is going straight in my shopping basket next time I do an order on beautybay :D

    This nail varnish is absolutely stunning! Have you seen the new models own ones that will be coming out soon? They are such gorgeous duochromes.
    I personally love the purpley ones, but this is just something else, definitely on my wish list.
    Thank you for sharing!

    What a funny coincidence – I literally just bought this colour on BeautyBay last week. I’ve been staring at my nails in fascination ever since.

    Ooeee, that’s nice. That’s a good question – if I made a duochrome it’d have green, purple and gold in it.

    Now that’s one of the nicest colours I’ve seen! I can see reds, greens, and purples in there with a hint of cream (oh no I sound like Jilly Goolden doing one of her wine tastings ) Absolutely love it !
    P. :0)

    This reminds me of an old Collection 2000 polish that I still have (the lid was stuck shut for years), I think it’s really similar to this except pale blue where this is green.

    That’s a beaut. I am so into holo polishes and duochromes right now rather than the usual autumnal purples and reds :)
