So I get off work early and I'm home an hour and a half earlier than usual. Bright sun shine all around me. What a great opportunity for me to swatch the new, awesome Nubar - Royal Gems collection. I got one color swatched and wouldn't you know that rain clouds came in and ruined my swatching opportunity! DRATS! We are supposed to have some really nice weather this weekend, so I hope to have lots of swatches for you come next week!

I will show you the one that I did get swatched though - 24K:

I had some shade shots of 24K, but for some reason they wouldn't upload on my computer. This weekend I will be swatching 24K again with the rest of the collection, so I will have pics up then. The above picture, I used three coats of 24K.

This is with Tiara added. I used one coat.

I was honestly a little leery of 24K in the bottle. I thought it looked way to yellow to be a "true" gold color. Boy was I wrong, once I put it on, it looked just like gold to me. This is really a very nice gold color and it didn't bring the redness out in my fingers which makes finding golds so hard for me. While looking through my pics on my camera, my BF came across this one and commented how good this color looked - so it definitely passed the BF test! Also, it lookes like it has a rough finish with Tiara on the top, but it doesn't, it is a smooth finish.
So stay tuned for the swatches for the whole Nubar - Royal Gems collection coming soon!!
