NOTD Before & After: Nubar Indigo Illusion + Spoiled Jewelry Heist (Or, Chance favors the brain dead)


Today I have another lovely duochrome for you...This time, Nubar's Indigo Illusion.

I've been wanting this one for quite a long time, so couldn't wait to try tit on. Just like my other Nubars, this one did not disappoint, with flashes of muted purples, teals, and greens throughout:

After wearing it alone for a while, I wanted to do something to it, but I wasn't sure what. It was late, and I was in one of those places where your brain will just not kick in, and you have no inspiration for anything. I was sitting at my work area (on my living room coffee table where I spread some newspaper, lol), and just reached over to the polishes left there from some messing around I had been doing the day before. I saw Spoiled's Jewelry Heist, and picked it up and figured what the heck...I had to go to a graduation party the next day, so I decided a little chunky glitter could give it a nice confetti look:

I'm starting to think this glitter has a little bit of a chameleon quality to it--is seems to go perfectly with whatever I put it with. Or maybe I've just picked the right pairings. Either way, I love how it just added a little bit of flash and specialness to the polish without covering it or detracting it.

I also wanted to do a close-up of them so that you could see the colors of both the glitter and the polish a little better--click on them for a closer look.

While it's true that I love duochrome polishes, so I'm clearly biased, this is such a beautiful polish...:)

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. Indigo Illusion is so pretty, I need it for my collection. I love the glitter you've added to it too, gorgeous :)

    1. Thank you. :) It is a beautiful color...I put off getting it, and I'm sorry I did! :)

  2. It looks great, both with or without the glitter. But as a glitter addict, I obviously prefer the glitter version :D

    1. Thanks! I'm becoming a glitter addict myself. Now if only they'd come out with a polish that removes it easily, lol...

  3. I am going to have to get this love the effect it has with the light, and you are right about the glitter it goes perfectly with just about anything.

    1. Both polishes really are beautiful. I got the glitter because I had never seen anything like it, and it's turning out to be so versatile!!
