Nubar Petunia Sparkle + Accessorize Pin-Up

First the pic.

Now. Does the accent nail colour closely resemble the remaining nails? No.

You can see why I thought they might be similar? Yes?

Accessorize PU
2 coats - opaque as the depths of Hades
Dark base with very fine added glitter
Easy to apply

Nubar PS
3, 4 coats and still not right
Streaky application - you seek it here, you seek it there, it's gone bloomin' everywhere and then it's nowhere
One of the messiest, least satisfying polishes I have used in a long while
Quite matte, quite uneven finish, needs plenty topcoat

However the OH noticed (!) and likes (!!) the Petunia. And it is undoubtedly a shamelessly fun colour. And would be an outright 10/10 were it not for its beastly application.

I also love petunias. Especially the dark purple ones which are the only ones to smell good.

Favourite flower fragrance? I've just ordered some cheapo Yardley Peony as I love peonies too.

Flower fragrance? I can think of dozens.



  1. Now that's more like it, purple and sparkly. Can't fault you.
    Some kind soul bought me a solid perfume stick in Blue Orchid for Xmas, it smells divine. xxx

  2. How odd, I have Nubar Petunia Sparkles and it was great for me! Full of glitter, quick drying, no streaks, one of the best polishes I've used in a while! :/ Very odd!

  3. Thank you so much for your comment! :) and it would be great if you could help me by featuring my blog too. Have a great one!
