Top 10 Nail Polish Brushes

As important as it is for a nail polish to have a great formula (smooth, pigmented, streak-free), it means nothing if the brush you use to apply it isn’t up to par. The two definitely go hand in hand, which is why, when the Top 10 Tuesday crew decided to focus on brushes, I opted to hone in on my favorite nail polish brushes.

Best Base Coats for Nails

When I put together my list of current Favorite Top Coats, many of you requested to hear about the Best Base Coats in my arsenal. I actually have more top coats than base coats and that’s because I tend to stick with my tried and true faves. I test new things, of course, but, for the most part, these have become my staples.

To make sure I have all your bases covered (pun totally intended), I am sharing my favorites for long-lasting wear, ridge filling, treatment and specialty polishes.

The Nubar Jeans collection is finally on sale and I’m sure, like me, you are curious about how this collection compares to the now sold out Chanel Les Jeans de Chanel collection so I put together a quick video for you while I work on proper comparison swatches. Enjoy!

The Nubar Jeans collection is available now online at The set of three nail polishes retail for $19.99.

What are your initial thoughts on the two collections? If you splurged on the Chanel Les Jeans polishes do you feel they are worth it? If you held out, do you plan to pick up the Nubar set?

ALU’s 365 of Untrieds – Nubar Indigo Ocean Mini-sized

nubar indigo ocean nail polish blue shimmer 365 of Untrieds is my personal challenge to weed through the polishes in the ALU stash that I’ve been wanting to try but just haven’t gotten around to.

Untried Day #116 – Before we start talking polish, I have a Weight Watchers update for you. If you recall, I joined the program in July after my father’s health scare. Well it’s been 30 days and I have lost 10 pounds! I’m so excited. I’m really loving WW since they have an app for Android and I’m pretty much addicted to my phone. It makes it so much easier to calculate and keep track of my points.

Okay so back on track. As you know I went to Cosmoprof last week and I promise to start posting about everything I saw tomorrow. In the meantime, let’s talk about the fact that Nubar is launching mini bottles of their best selling shades. The minis are currently available outside the US but releasing here very soon.  They also have some gorgeous colors coming out in the fall collection but I can’t reveal pics for another couple weeks. Let’s just say they are unexpected fall shades.

I had a great time chatting with Nubar founder Noubar Abrahamian and he was kind enough to send me home with some minis before they launch on the site. Oh and keep an eye out for a completely redesigned, easier to navigate

Since one of the minis is a shade I have in full size but have never worn, I decided to use it for today’s Untrieds. Let’s take a closer look at Nubar Indigo Ocean.
