NOTD: Nubar Baby Blue


This is two coats of NUBAR Baby Blue. Icy Pastel Baby Blue.

The only pastel nail color I will usually wear during the winter is mint green; but I fell in love with the wintery vibe of this baby blue. The frosty shading reminded me so much of December scenery, and is just gorgeous on. The application of Baby Blue was incredible – no drip, no glop…just smooth coats to create perfect opacity. If you, like me, love mint green nail colors {i.e. Essie Mint Candy Apple}, you will adore this baby blue twist.

DUPE ALERT: This is an exact dupe of Chanel Riva, from the Côte d'Azur Collection – which was huge during the 2010 – 2011 runway season; so if you missed out on Riva then {or simply didn’t want to pay upwards of $25 for a bottle} this is a great frugal find!

Accessories: Pearlescent Love Ring Set in Silver / Clear via Forever 21.

What nail color are you rocking for #ManicureMonday?

As soon as I saw your post, I looked at my nails and screamed (in my head obviously): 'Oh no, I have no polish on my nails today! '
Shame on me :)

That baby blue is gorgeous. I definitely prefer light colours in the winter as opposed to my usual plums and reds.
