nubar Purple Aster

Press Sample

I don't know what happened in December. Granted, it was my 37th birthday in there somewhere, and there was Christmas and New Years and things just kind of melted together. Another thing that happened was my 8th wedding anniversary and to celebrate, we had family portraits taken by Sweetest Snaps Photography. I found Ashlee through a mom friend who has a daughter the same age as my middle son. I saw a photo in their house that was just breathtaking of her and her two girls and I asked who did them and she told me about Sweetest Snaps.

I'm seriously obsessed with her work... we've had 8 photo sessions with her and I'm just always so happy with the results (Bluebonnets with the kids, maternity, "fresh 48" in the hospital, newborn with family x2, family photos x2 and a 1 year old "rib smash".) I could go on and on (and if you ask me, I will)... if you're in the Coastal Bend area of Texas, don't go anywhere else for photos. Seriously.

So the polish. I'm wearing nubar Purple Aster and the reason is because that's what I wore on my wedding day! Same bottle and everything. I started with Morgan Taylor react MAX Optical Brightener, 2 coats of polish and finished with cuccio High Gloss Top Coat. This is a sweet lavender with a bit of pearl mixed in but it doesn't have that highly streaky appearance that most pearls do.

That being said, my bottle needs a little love - maybe some thinner but it was a nice reminder of older days. nubar, unfortunately, is discontinued and hard to find online.

As for the photos? Well my youngest stole the show.

But we did get some good ones of all of us.

Here's to 2021!
