Not what I expected, but MUCH better

Morning! Once again, I ordered some Nubar polishes off of eBay. You know, if eBay didn't exist, I'm pretty sure my bank account would have many more zeros.  Anyways, this one is Star Sparkle. It's loaded with holo glitter, and just looks amazing on the nail. Since I had some spare time at night, I decided to stamp over it too.

Here is 3 coats of Star Sparkle





Then using the Mash plate M60 and Wet n' Wild Black polish, I did this design. I freaking love that it actually looks like I have fabric over top the design!





Oh and, you know how I love my flakie polishes, can you believe I found a flakie lip gloss at Wal-mart, by Hard Candy! I'm also a semi lip gloss hoarder, lol. But this has FLAKES, and ones you can see when you apply it. It's so cool, and a great effect that I just had to share. This one is called Tipsy :)

Here is a swatch on my hand. It's such a light sheer pink, but the flakes, EEEKKK, I love! It doesn't even have a rough texture at all!

  1. Wow, I love the stamp and the contrast of the colours, very nice! :) And a lipgloss with flakies? That's just awesome!

  2. Uhm, I can tell you there's another lipgloss with flakies MUCH more similar to the Nfu-Oh flakies nailpolishes, it's called "Ametista" (n. 17) by italian brand Collistar; if you google it, you'll find some pictures, but in real life I swear you it's almost a Nfu-Oh n. 51 packed in a lipgloss tube :D

    I didn't buy it because I don't wear colours on lips, so I don't know about the final effect (guess it gives just a veil of tint with sparse flakies), but it's an interesting try :>

  3. Wow, I like the look! Would have never thought of stamping over a holo/glitter polish, but I'm convinced now :) The pattern is awesome, too!

  6. I really nerd to place a Nubar order! I've seen the flaky lipgloss but haven't tried it yet because I'm afraid it will feel gritty on my lips.

    Smaltoitaliano, seriously??? I'm going to have to look that up, because I seriously love thsi stuff, and might actually go get the other colors!

    Sophie, I went ahead and did, on my hand, and updated my post. I did try on my lips, but DANG, there is def a reason I am no makeup blogger, lol

    Jessi, you do! I really love my Nubars so far, and so many fun colors! The lipgloss actually doesn't feel like there are any flakes in it, it is very smooth :)

    Sara, thanks :) IKR, this gloss is so fun!

    I love the nail design too! So pretty!

  16. I have been dying to get my hands on some Nubars - who do you purchase from ebay? Ebay sorta scares me.

  18. Erika just remember a zero is nothing lol! I have to say I LOVE this mani! LOVE IT! I can't believe how awesome it looks and yes, I WILL be stealing it someday lol! I tried water marbling for the first time yesterday and it was not fun--it took me over 2 hours but I think I might actually have the hang of it now and I will try again. I wonder how this imaged stamped over China Glaze's Atlantis would look?

  19. Gorgeous nail polihs, your right it does look like you have actually lace on your nails ^_^

    Eeee thank you for sharing the flakies lipgloss I haven't seen anything like that before

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thanks ladies!!!

    Naghmeh, isn't it awesome!! Sis you happen to get any of the other shades?

    shimmer, you should def just give it a try and keep practicing. Once you get it, it's so worth it and fun

    Arlene, I love Nubar!! I get mine from either
    enchantedbeautyspot, or ticklepink4u. I've purchased from them both, many times with no issues

    lnievin, HAHA, very good point!YAY, atleast you tried marbling. The first time is a pain, but it gets so much easier ater that.

    FOREVER '92, you're so welcome, I can't wait to try the others

    Monkey, thanks, I love their glitters!

  21. That's really lovely; it looks like stain glass.

  22. I picked up the Seche Vite top coat (finally) for the first time since it was on sale at Sally's. I have you to thank, because I never used to be a nail person. I didn't think it would be different from other top coats, but boy was I wrong!! The only thing I didn't like was that it smells like one of those jumbo permanent markers. Oh well, I can't stop looking at my glossy nails!

  23. I wasn't to fond of the glitter by itself but when you added the stamping of the konad it instantly popped.

  24. One day, when I have money, I will purchase a Konad stamp thing. One day...one day. *looks wistfully into the distance*

    Fantastic manicure! It looks so unique! : D

  30. I want that lip gloss now!!!!

    The mani is really beautiful. I still haven't been able to use my Konad plates. I'm having problems with them, or maybe it's just me. :(
