Polish of the Week: Nubar Oro

Nubar Oro, three coats, no flash

My wonderful mom bought me a few Nubars for my birthday recently and the first one I tried was Oro, from the Venetian Glass collection. As soon as I unwrapped the polishes, Oro caught my eye. It is a gorgeous gold glass-fleck polish. The glass-fleck is very densely packed though, so the finish really resembles a foil. Oro is not your traditional gold either. It's a very bright, orange-y gold that I'm sure is not everyone's cup of tea. I LOVE it though. It reminds me of ancient gold artifacts or something. I definitely think it has an old burnished gold feel to it.

The formula on this was lovely, no problems at all. The polish flowed easily onto the nail and dried quickly. I really need to order more Nubars, I love every one I own. EK actually just ordered 10 Nubar polishes, so expect to see those posted here! Oro is one of those polishes that I keep staring at, it's really such a different color. I don't own anything anywhere close to this color. I was getting a little tired of wearing the same colors all the time, so I feel like this polish is a refreshing change.

In other news, Deborah Lippman polishes are 20% off with the code Turkey20 on! I've been wanting to order Bad Romance, maybe now is the time??
