Amor de Lacquer: Nubar Fortress Collection

| May 19, 2010 | 12 Comments

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.

Nubar hits us again with one of those “OMG, how did they think of this?” kind of collections.

Yes, girl…you eyes aren’t playin’ with you. It’s a bunch of grays and blacks. Brace yourself!

Citadel is described as a pale gray creme. It applies flawlessly without any streaks.

Marble Tower is almost looks Citadel except it is more pale. See the boo-boo I made on my middle finger? Gotta be careful with those creams. They tend to drag down to the cuticles a bit.

Barricade is a light gray that reminds me of wet cement.


Stronghold is a darker gray that is unlike any other gray that I own. I don’t know what it is about grays but I just love them!

Palisade isn’t the most unique of the bunch to me. Still a flawless gray nonetheless!

Dark Castle is described as a charcoal black with a subtle silver shimmer. When the light hits that shimmer, it radiates something beautiful.

Silver Sword is the perfect addition to this collection. Great polish, Nubar! I’ve never been a fan of gunmetal polishes but somehow this one works.

Knight’s Armor  is definitely my favorite. How awesome is the silver glitter?

I LOVED this collection. I love the theme and I love that Nubar is hittin’ us with polishes that a lot of brands steer away from. I didn’t have any application problems with any of these polishes, aside from Marble Tower dragging to my cuticles. Citadel and Marble Tower seem to be so much alike and I would have loved to see a bit of glitter thrown in one of them. A pale gray cream with silver glitter would be hot!

Are you a fan of black and gray polishes?

You can buy the collection for $49.95 or purchase them individually for $7.49 here.
