NOTD: Nubar 'Sexy Red' Nail Lacquer

nubar sexy red nail lacquerI thought as it's Valentines Day next week I'd do themed ish posts on here- nail and make up wise. I'm planning to do a make up look soon using the 88-palette, but in the meantime I thought I'd get started with the nails, as Nubar kindly sent me a shade from their recent Hypnotic Valentines Collection to test out.

As you may already know, I've become a huge fan of Nubar recently, because they're a nail company that doesn't use nasty ingredients and doesn't test on animal; both things I have strong opinions on. My love for them first started when I spotted Cheryl Cole in a dark navy shade on the X Factor, and discovered it was a Nubar shade she was wearing. I now own 3 shades, but this is the first bright colour I've tried. When I think of Valentine shades, I automatically think of red and pink, so it's no surprise that the two shades used for this collection are just that! This shade, 'Sexy Red' is described as 'a passionate scorching hot red that's sure to sizzle on any one's talons'. It definitely is a scorching red! I'm generally more a fan of darker red shades, so when I first saw this I thought, wow, insanely bright!!! I've never been a fan of bright reds, because I never think I can carry them off, but on this is such a warming colour and it really livens up the complexion, and you do feel super glamorous wearing it. It goes on like a dream and seemed even easier than the last 2 shades, even though I know they all have the same brush!

So overall, I don't think this would be my everyday shade but I do absolutely love that it's changed my perception of red polishes completely. If you're looking for a red to sum up Valentines, then this is definitely the colour. But be warned, it's not for the shy and retiring, it is called 'Sexy Red' after all! Oh and here's a familiar face who loves it too...Eva Mendes sporting 'Sexy Red'!
