The matt finish, just isn't for me, I am very anti dryness and touching matt nails REALLY irritated me. It looks very dull and uninteresting to me. I am not "with it" on the matt trend. I wore it with a couple of coats, and I noticed chipping from the first day, which is supposedly not supposed to happen with the matt formula?! Do you like the matt finish? The gloss formula for Nubar however is totally different, it lasted ages and looks very pretty.
In all honesty I'm not that keen on the packaging for Nubar either, It's not at all appealing to the eye. I'm very much influenced by the way a product is presented, I highly value the importance of packaging. But, clearly Nubar is not about that, it's marketed at somebody who is highly influenced by the ingredients and the whole ethical value of a product. Unfortunately I am not Nubar's Target consumer, if you are then this brand is perfect for you.
However, if you are not concerned about the ingredients and really liked these 2 shades, Nails Inc "Burlington Arcade" is an exact dupe for Contempo but with a gloss finish.
Coincidentally, when I happened to be wearing the Cozumel Coral, my friend happened to be wearing Barry M's 296 Coral, which is EXACTLY the same colour!
