Nubar — Orange Cream

Polishment posted on Chanel's new shades for Spring 2012 back in January. Since then, I've noticed that readers find Polishment on a regular basis thanks to googling Chanel June. Seems like everyone finds it to be as peachy keen as I do!

If only we could all have Chanel June in our Stashes! It's a pretty one, but it's not a color I'd wear often enough to justify the $26 price tag.

I saw a Nubar color recently that was reminiscent of June enough to give it a whirl. May I present Nubar Orange Cream!

And for comparison, some shots of Chanel June...

They are far from dupes, that's for sure! Nubar Orange Cream is, as you'd probably guess, a cream formula, whereas Chanel June appears to be slightly sheer. Orange Cream is much brighter than I'd anticipated and has very yellow undertones; June, on the other hand, is pinky-peachy.

If you're in the mood for a wild peach, may I suggest Essie Haute As Hello. It's one of my all-time favorite shades! I haven't taken my own pictures of it, but will probably slap some on this summer and share with y'all. In the meantime, here are some great swatches from a blog called Short 'n Chic.
