Nubar Reclaim

Nubar Reclaim from the Going Green Collection

After a week of damp, murky weather, we were blessed with a bit of sunshine, so I decided to celebrate with a linear holo because they look so pretty in the sun!
Up today we have Nubar Reclaim! Since I have not reviewed any Nubar polishes yet, we'll do the full run down on this brand. Nubar can be purchased directly from the company at www.bynubar.com , and by quite a few sellers on eBay and Amazon, though I have never seen them at any brick and mortar store. The bottles contain .5 oz, the same as OPI or China Glaze. The design on this bottle is flawless! Nice wide base, tampers up to a small opening for the brush, reminiscent to a skirt. I love bottles with a nice wide base- they are much harder to tip over, so we can avoid mini-disasters while polishing. The handle on the brush is very ergonomic, making it comfortable to use. I have no qualms against the actual brush and think it did a good job on controlling the polish.
Reclaim is a beautiful soft jade linear holo polish. I can not say enough good things about it! It only took 2 coats to get fully opaque- quite an accomplishment as many holo polishes are pretty thin and need many coats or “undies” to be opaque. The consistency was great, not too runny, not too thick, and was easy to paint just where I wanted it. The pay off was stunning- in the sun the holo effect on the polish reminded me of peacock feathers.
If you do not have a green linear holo, hunt this one down online- I'm sure you won't be disappointed!
Think I squeezed the bottle too tight!

Matches my favorite tea cup!

So pretty in the sun

More than a bit distracting- don't worry, I was stopped for this pic!


    I don't have any holo's yet (yes, i know, i should be ashamed of myself)
    I love the color!

    1. Thanks for the kind words! It was pretty inexpensive on Amazon but so lovely! My favorite green holo :)

    1. Isn't it pretty? The colors are great! Not as rainbow-y as a normal linear holo, but stunning never the less :)
