Manis for busy bodies: Nubar Forest

Nubar Forest is another polish that undeservingly lived in the depths of my polish-vault. It was released back in 2009 as part of Nubar's Going Green Collection. It is not only super easy to apply and dries incredibly fast to a high shine finish - it's color is also absolutely, totally outstanding. How could I just neglect it for so long???????????????

I applied two thinner coats over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. The formula in my bottle is thin but not too runny so if your brush is not overloaded by polish, application is very easy. The second coat provided full opacity. And - no top coat needed as this baby shines like this all on its own.

This mani took me a max of 40 minutes from bare nails to dry and shiny tips.

This is a real Oldie but Goldie - what is your favorite Oldie but Goldie?

You can order Nubar with Harlow & Co.

I look forward to reading your comments - thank you for visiting!!!
