Iced Licorice + comparison

"Whaat, is she crazy? Such a gloomy shade in the middle of summer?" - you might think, seeing today's swatches. But I've been craving Nubar Iced Licorice for ages, and after I got it, I couldn't let it stay in untrieds for a long time. Moreover, a fellow bloggerin, TatiN (check her blog, she has very pretty swatches!), asked me to show it. So I am doing:

And of course I was VERY curious to compare Licorice with my favourite Deborah Milano #60. They look pretty similar in the bottles, no?

Although both polishes have purple base, the difference here is that Deborah is more cool-toned, and Licorice is slightly warmer.  Also, the golden shimmer is not the same: Nubar has mica-type flakies, and Deborah just usual small golden shimmer particles. Whereas Nubar has a more delicate shine, Deborah is more of a blingy-thingie. By formula, Nubar is thicker than the quite sheer Deborah, and covers in 2 coats vs. Deb's 3.

Yeah, might be not that much of a difference on the photos, but there is more in real life, you see it. They are NOT dupes. And as for me, I ❤ them both! :)

    1. Thanks! From what I see in the Internet, Oui might be very very close to these 2 polishes.. I don't have it unfortunately - I didn't buy it not to stash dupes :)

  2. I'm with you on this one, they are both gorgeous! I think I prefer Licorice though as I like the base colour more :). Either way they both look great on your nails

  14. Ногти тут получились какими-то особенно красивыми. Тебе очень идут такие цвета. И Нубар все же круче, я бы даже сказала, слишком хорош. ЗА макро спасибо, а то я его всегда видела издали, не впечатлял.
