Inspired by the colorful play of light through a prism, those bands of light and color are embodied in nubar’s Prisms Collection. Each shade in the Prism Collection is filled with holographic glitter reflecting every color of the rainbow, with base colors just as varied, ranging from subtle neutrals to vivid pink to pale blue. Going a step beyond holographic nail lacquers, nubar’s Prism Collection is a celebration of color and light. As all nubar products, they are free of formaldehyde, phthalates, and toluene, as well as vegan and cruelty free.
I'm loving this sable colored holo shimmer. Even though I would consider this a "mature" color I really, really liked it on. I think this would be a great polish for those of you with job's that restrict your nail polish colors.
MOM, you are going to l-o-v-e this color. This one has holo glitter to it and it just shimmers and winks, even in low lights. This is a nice warm brown color and I just loved this polish. I'm not even a big brown fan, but this polish gets one for the win!

Wow, this color was a strange (in a good way) one. I want to say it is a duo chrome. This changed from looking mauve to gray. This is another one that had the holo glitter pieces in it. This is a great winter color, it is so unique. I really loved this color too!
(See how my tips are gray while the mauve is showing at my cuticles?)
This one I wasn't too impressed with. It had the holo shimmer to it. I think this fell flat with me because the pink color matched my skin color too much. I think some of you darker ladies could really rock this color better than me. The pink shade was also a little too "mature" for my tastes too.
This is a holo shimmer polish. I was expecting something like Color Club's Wild at Heart, but this isn't anything like it. This has less holo shimmer and is quite a bit more sheer than Wild at Heart. This is three coats shown and you can still see it is a little bit sheer. I don't know if they were going for sheer with this color, but I just found it to be so-so. I prefer the deeper purple color of Wild at Heart and the stronger holo sheen that it has too. That said, I would still wear this color again.
Another holo shimmer polish. This was on the sheer side too, but it really worked for this one I think. I don't even like sheers but something about this one really caught my eye and I kept looking at it. This is a darker pink than Essence, and it worked better with my skin tone.
I thought this one was going to compare with China Glaze's 2Nite - but it isn't. Again these are nothing like the China Glaze OMG collection. This blue was much like the purple one, Treasure. It has that sheer quality to it, and the holo shimmer isn't as strong as I would have liked it to be either.
Prize really is the prize of this collection. This one has the holo glitter in it. This color reminds me of Massini Slammin' Red, but the glitter particles are much finer in Prize. This is a pink red shade that just looks awesome! This one also shimmered and sparkled even under low lights too. I couldn't quit looking at this polish, it is super duper pretty.
I really liked this collection. I was surprised that I liked the polishes that had the holo glitter better than the holo shimmer. There were some hits and misses in this collection (depending on your tastes) but a really good collection as a whole. I know that I would buy this whole collection if I hadn't been given one for review. I think most of you holo freaks out there would agree. The drying time on these was normal to slow. Again, I was comparing them with the holo's I have used in the past, which usually have a quick dry time. However, these didn't give those streaks and bald spots I have gotten with other holo's in the past either. Also the ones with the holo glitter may require a second top coat to really smooth them all out, but the glitter pay off is totally worth it.
I think NUBAR has been killing it with their collections lately. I love their thought process behind their collections. They don't just come out with some random polishes and throw them together and call it a collection. Their collections have a running theme and I really dig that. This collection will be available Jan 1st, 2010 and I believe run $49.50 for the whole collection.
