The Painted Nail (Nubar) Love My Loubys Nail Art

Hey guys!  I hope you all enjoyed your weekends.  They never last as long as you hope or plan.  Oh well.  While I was away for July 4th I was lucky enough to receive a message from Michelle at All Lacquered Up telling me that I had been selected for her The Painted Nail Give Away.  It corresponded with the release of The Nail Files, the new salon centered reality show on TV Guide Network.  As part of my prize pack I received one of the polishes that salon owner Katie Carzola has created with Nubar.  Nubar has an awesome formula to begin with and as a nail blog follower Katie has created a great color with a great formula!  Love My Loubys is a bright blood red creme that was perfectly opaque in 2 coats.

The formula on this was incredible and stayed exactly where I placed my brush.  The bottle is the same shape as the standard Nubar bottle with the cap that sits so easily in your hand.  While I couldn't find the details on The Painted Nail's specific polishes, Nubar polishes are 3 Free and cruelty free.  I would assume that these would be too!
2 coats Love My Loubys +Seche Vite and Orly Instant Artist, artificial light
Being that I did this mani over the weekend, I couldn't leave it plain red.  I added stripes using my new set of Orly Instant Artist polishes.  It's nothing exciting, but it's still summery and fun and reflects this horrible heat wave that we are stuck in right now.  This is also me just practicing with the striper polishes.  I would highly recommend the Orly Instant Artist polishes to anyone interested in venturing into the world of basic nail art!  Also, I will be purchasing some more of Katie's polishes and would suggest that those of you who have been contemplating a purchase get on it!  You can buy them here!
