Wondering what that fabulous nail polish is that Ginnifer Goodwin is wearing in the hit movie “He’s Just Not That Into You”? Celebrity Makeup Artist Tina Roeselor Kerwin chose the nubar line because the line is free of Formaldehyde, Toluene or (DBP)Phthalate. The three ingredients that are contained in many nail polish lines and are linked to cancer and birth defects. (www.bynubar.com)

I have more Nubar fun in store for you today.
Today we’ll take a look at Nubar’s second collection
for Spring 2009, the Coral Collection. Let’s get right to the pictures!
Each is two coats (all were two coaters for me)
over a base under artifical light, and I’ll show them
to you in the order that I swatched them, which is
the order they’re in the box.
Red Sea Coral is a true coral,
and this one is the only shimmer in the collection.
Cayman Coral is a really hot coral creme
Finally, Cozumel Coral, which is another surprise: an orange coral jelly.
Costa Rica Coral is a bit more subdued
than Cayman Coral, and is also a creme.
Belize Coral is a true coral, more intense
in color than Red Sea Coral, and is a creme.
Amazon Coral is a vivid pink coral creme.
Caribbean Coral is the surprise in the bunch,
inspired by purple coral, and is also a creme.
Palau Coral is a vivid orange coral creme.
It seems that not all nail polish is created equal!
We recently found a lovely polish by NUBAR, that is free of formaldehyde, Toluene and other toxic chemicals.
It’s all part of their new vineyard collection, that was inspired by touring through Italy, with the rolling vineyards, and countless fields to wild flowers and appropriately named after their famous wines (Merlot, Corvina, Pinot and Muscato) Yes, we women over 40 look gorgeous in these rich colors! It’s like they took several different bottles of deep colored wines, and attached a nail polish brush to them!
We think this healthy alternative to beautiful nails is long over due and moreover they wear well too!
