Happy Monday!! (that's a joke =) ) Those weekends go waaaay too fast!!!
To take your Monday Blues away I have a gorgeous blue for you!! I got it in my last post and Mihaela asked to see it, so there you go girlie!! I hope everyone else likes it too! Here is Nubar Absolute.
When I started applying Absolute I was extremely disappointed. It's very very sheer and it didn't cover my nail even in 3 coats!! So I decided to layer it over another blue. I chose China Glaze "Bahamian Escape", a beautiful sky blue which I already showed you here (my goodness, my pictures were horrible back then... I'm not even going back to the beginnings of this blog 'cuz I'm too embarassed!)

Next I added one coat of Nubar Absolute. It's a holographic scattered microglitter suspended in a sheer blue base. Even though it was too sheer to cover up VNL in 3 coats, 1 coat was enough to cover bald spots on the base color. Formula is very nice as well. The finish kinda reminds me of China Glaze "Fairy Dust", only in blue base instead of a clear base.
Aaaaand, since I"m trying my luck at nail art again, I added some rhinestones to my accent finger!! I really hope I have at least one left after full day of work!
Absolute is part of Nubar's Prisms collection released in Spring 2010 and I got my bottle at Harlow&Co.
I initially didn't want to keep it, but it looks so gorgeous in combination with "Bahamian Escape" that I think I will put it back in my stash. By itself it's definitely disappointing, but I definitely don't have anything that looks like this combination!! If a dupe comes to mind, please let me know!!
Hope you guys have a wonderful Monday!! Thanks so much for stopping by =)
