Nubar - Gem

Nuber Gem - artificial light

Today I have put on one of my untrieds - Nubar Gem from the Prism Collection.

Gem is a brown taupe with a purple undertone, scattered with tiny rainbow holographic glitters. The purple shade is stronger under soft lights (see below photos), and under strong lights Gem looks more brownish.

Here you can see the sparkles better
It is quite a unique polish, I think it is "office-appropriate" with just enough glitters to keep things interesting. The only thing I don't like about the polish is its grainy finish, even after two coats of topcoat.

The above mani is done with one coat of SV treatment, 2 coats of Gem, and 2 coats of CND super shine.

I love this polish but as you said it's not completely smooth;;
But still, I love it!

It's not bad. I will swatch Jewel from the same collection later. From the bottles they look pretty similar!

You managed to find Nubar in HK?! I couldn't find it anywhere! You really do manage to hunt these cool polishes out!
