The Painted Nail (by Nubar) No Place Like Home

A while back I made mention of a new reality show that's scheduled to air on the TV Guide Network later this year called The Nail Files. I don't watch too much television, but I know I'm going to want to check this show out! The show will take place at The Painted Nail in Sherman Oaks, CA, and features the owner, Katie Cazorla. I ordered three of their polishes--which are manufactured by Nubar--and here's a look at one of them called No Place Like Home. I have a very small collection of Nubar polishes, so I can't compare this to any of their other shades.

Below: No Place Like Home was nearly opaque using one coat, but I used two coats for good measure. This red glitter bomb of a polish is filled to the max with tiny red foil glitter that reflects some gold as well. The finish is a little bit rough and dries to a semi-matte finish, but I imagine a clear top coat would take care of that. It's shown below with no top coat under indoor lighting and an Ott lamp.



This line of polishes has some very cute names (Stalkarazzi, Love My Loubys, and Betty, named after everyone's favorite Betty White) and they retail for $12.50 each. I received my order very quickly--3 days from California, so I have no complaints on their service. The few Nubar polishes I do have all apply wonderfully, and this one is no exception.

Are you going to be tuning in to The Nail Files?

  1. pretty! I wonder if it's a dupe of any regular Nubar polish. I want to buy a few just for the names but I worry that I would already have it w/a different name from Nubar.

  2. That looks an awful lot like one of the Nubar red glitters O_o at a significant markup. I love Nubar. I have a large stash of Nubars, so I'll probably just stick with them. This one does look hawt on you though!

  3. The logo looks cool, but the color doesn't really speak to me.

  5. I'd dare say this is a dupe for Nubar's Fire Sparkle (from Sparke Spring 2010 Collection). From what I saw in your previous post on this brand (after clicking the link you posted) a couple of them could be dupes or at least very similar. I don't think we'll get the chance to see the show on our program, but i'm wondering about your reactions in USA about it. :)

  6. That's beautiful. I don't think it's a dead on dupe to any of Nubar's shades but a close one perhaps.

  7. Wait, this is a Nubar polish? But it's $5 more than the regular ones? I don't understand.

  8. Gorgeous polish. I have a bunch of Nubar's and I love this brand. Fantastic glitters! I'm sure I have one just like this from Nubar. I on the other hand watch lots of TV. I will sure to be checking out this one!
