Nubar Risque Reds

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, Nubar is doing a today-only sale code (expires at midnight, eastern time): Save 20% on orders of $30 or more with code STPAT2030 — visit Nubar’s website to get shopping.

Nubar also has a new collection out, called Risque Reds. I am a huge fan of Nubar’s polishes, but this collection struck me as odd. If you’re a lover of reds (as is my friend Carla at ProductGirl), you might end up amassing a collection like this over time — but would you buy all 8 together?  The shades are $7.49 each, or $49.95 for the collection (about a $10 savings).
Nubar, Risque Reds, swatches,
Sensual Red is bright, hot rod red. Lustful Red is deeper, more cherry, like a red lacquered box. Sensual and Lustful are the only cremes in the collection; the others are shimmers.

Cabaret Red is like Christmas. Sultry Red is deeper, and a little more berry (perhaps it’s slightly bluer). Fiery Red is deeper still, a bordello red. Enchanting Red is like red velvet theater curtains. Torrid red is a vampy, gothy, more brown-burgundy shade. Seductive Red is magenta.  Nubar provided these polishes for swatching.

Thoughts? Favorites? Red lovers, are you swooning?

    This collection, like the Nubar Fortress one, offers many shades of one colour so that a person is bound to find one or a few that really works with their skin tone. Not necessarily to purchase the whole set. I think it is a new way to approach collections, by a brand focusing on perfecting excellent shades of one colour rather than a mediocre shade of many colours.

    Even though they’re ‘just reds’ they’re absolutely gorgeous!

  • Tiffany says:

    Interesting. I’m not a huge red person so I can’t see buying the set, but I am drawn to Lustful Red.

  • OMG! So lovely shades! Seductive Red is definitely must-have for me :D

  • Diann says:

    They are all pretty, but no one needs more than 1 or 2, I agree you pick what works best with your skin tone

  • Holly says:

    Just a thought- perhaps this was put together with gradient manicures in mind?
