Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

Hmmm, truffles. I’m not the biggest chocolate fan in the world (I know, I know) but it’s just like Nubar to name a collection Chocolate Truffle. This collection satisfies your sweet tooth sans the calories and guilt. Nubar sent me these babies for review so without further ado…

Ladies and gentlemen, introducing the stars of Nubar’s Chocolate Truffle collection:

Chocolate Coffee Bean is is described as a deep brown shimmer. I’ll be honest….I was hesitant about brown polish on brown skin. It didn’t seem like it would be something for I would like but by George, it’s gorg!


Raspberry Truffle sounds totally yummy and looks fantastic! I think this is my favorite out of the bunch. Funny what bright red shimmer can do to a brown polish. This is fabulous!


Cherry Cordial is the only color that I immediately liked when I first saw it. It had enough red to tame the brown that scared me.

Later that day I jazzed it up with Lippman’s Happy Birthday. It’s a party on my nails! I think I’m going to rock this on my real birthday (January 2nd….holla!).


Chocolate Caramel is described as a bro†wn gold shimmer. Yum-E! It looks luscious enough, uh? I’m not the biggest fan of gold polishes but this is a little warmer so it’s not so bad.


Swiss Chocolate isn’t a bad polish….I’m just not sure if it’s for me. It really is brown! This is a first for me. It’ll take some getting used to.

Milk Chocolate Creme looks so delicious. I’m not terribly in love with it either but it’s funky enough for me to sport.



Nubar does it again! When it comes to unique polish collections, they win. Hands down! I’ll admit that I have never really be interested in brown polishes. When I can find them, they just didn’t seem to be ideal for my warmer skintone. Nubar proves me wrong. While it may take me some time to love the entire clan, I’m glad that so many different variations of brown polishes are available.

I used 2 coats for each and didn’t experience any application issues. Not one bit. I’m going to doing some designs with these babies. Imagine the possibilities….

You can get all 6 polishes plus a base and top coat (loves ‘em!) for $49.95. Click here for more information.

Hmmm, whatcha say (channeling Jason DeRulo)? Like ‘em? Love ‘em? Could do without?

Your fellow nail polish junkie,

  9. Danielle says:

    I've seen a few reviews on these and wasn't impressed but now seeing them against brown skin…I see at least two clear winners.

  10. Deborah says:

    You are gonna have me going on another nail polish shopping spree!! I love all the colors and I don't have brown. I MUST add these to my collection!

  11. auroragyps says:

    All of those look amazing with your skin tone, even the two you're iffy about. You have great looking nails.

    PS: Have a Happy Birthday and a great Holiday season. Mine is on Jan. 8th, so my season is a week longer, but hopefully pretty stress free. ;)

  12. B says:

  14. B says:

    Anon—> Ohhh, I think I have Black Cherry too. I need to pull it out and give it a whirl! I'm so glad that you're wearing more colors. Thank you so much for the support!

  15. Redhead says:

    Can we purchase these separately? I'm in LOOOVE with Chocolate Caramel and Raspberry Truffle, but I can't justify 50 bucks for just 2 polishes I like out of the 6.

  16. B says:

    Redhead—> I forgot to mention that! Of course you can by them separately. :)


  17. [...] and low for nail polishes that look close my skin complexion. I’ve found darker ones through Nubar’s Chocolate Truffle Collection (one of the best collections, EVER!) but never one that looks close to my NW45 skin complexion. [...]
