Nubar Reclaim

Let me start off by saying that, for me, Nubar is a relatively hard brand to come by. I've never seen it in the wild, and their site has very high shipping. Usually, I buy off eBay, but I have purchased off their site before. I don't own a lot of Nubar polishes for this exact reason. There are just so many other polishes out there that are less of a pain to get. The first Nubars I purchased were their Matte collection, which came out 2 or 3 years ago, when matte polishes were just hitting it off. I didn't end up wearing them much because shortly after Zoya knocked it out of the park with their Matte Velvet collection. Hands down the best matte polishes out there. Nubar's green collection, with Reclaim and Wildlife, finally did me in, and for the longest time these were the only Nubars that I owned. Originally, I didn't like Reclaim (what was I smoking?), and I was ambivalent about the formula of Wildlife. Then, the Sparkle collection. Until a recently casualty (RIP Petunia Sparkle, you are missed), I did end up buying all of these. They're amazing. Other than that, however, Nubar is just a brand I don't much take the time to track down. Maybe I should or shouldn't, but I'm getting to the point where something has to be pretty dang amazing for me to have to put a lot of effort into it.

But, as usual, I digress. Nubar Reclaim. I wore it when I got it, and I don't remember being all that impressed. It was being heralded as the perfect holo green, and I just felt it was too silvery and not green enough. Well, I take it back. It's pretty darn amazing, and for a holographic polish it has an amazing formula.

This is 2 coats:

Pretty gorgeous, right? It's super holo, too. Do you guys love Nubar? Are they worth the hassle to get? This one certainly is, in my opinion. Tell me your Nubar favorites :)


  1. Love this. One of my fave Nubar polishes. :)

  2. It's so pretty, I don't know how I ever didn't like it!
