I somehow managed to blurt out that a comparison would be nice of these to, so it’s time to show it…. I just got Nubar 2010 a couple of weeks ago and just loves it! The KleanColor Chunky Holo Black I’ve had for a while but never really had an urge to try…
So, I’ve put together some photos for you to see the differences, and it’s quite a lot! Let’s start!
Check out the bottles first of all….The Nubar is in a clear base while the KleanColor has a tinted base (red) I can also tell that Nubar has only irregular shaped flakes and that there are hexagonal “glitters” (both big and small) as well as smaller round “glitter”. From what I can see there is no “flakes at all in the KleanColor bottle…. As for the smell: Both of them are pungent, but I think Nubar is a bit better… Now on to the painting…
I did a completely black base for both of them and put Nubar on my pinky and middle finger and I got KleanColor on my ring finger and index finger. The first photo is taken after just one coat of each polish. Both does very well, although the KleanColor is a bit tacky and gooey and hard to get even. When I put the second coat on it worked out well with the look and application, the KleanColor was harder. I almost had to place the “glitters” and the coat get really thick.
I did swatch these on a nail wheel just to see the differences above a little better….
|From L to R: Nubar, KleanColor, Nubar (on black), KleanColor (on black)|
Now you can see the tinted red base of the KleanColor one and as you actually can see here it’s rather hard to get it even.
I guess you’ve already managed to guess which one I love more! Nubar is the superior one and if you are considering to buy one of these, I would recommend Nubar!
Hope you enjoyed!
