Headboard and NOTD: Nubar Conserve

Hi guys!
The headboard is DONE! YAY!
It's a pretty basic padded headboard in black faux leather, was going with fabric first but there's just gonna get a bunch of dust stuck in it, and I realised wouldn't be able to take the cover off to wash as it's attached with staples on the backside of the wooden frame. The reason I decided to build my own was cause they are insanely expensive to buy! Atleast over here they are, no matter where I looked they were far over my budget. Making it myself cut the cost down to 1/8th of the store prices. Totally worth the extra time, it was fun too!
This is how it turned out:

Going for the hotel look in my bedroom, lol

When the headboard was done I could paint my nails!
I went with Nubar Conserve, which is a really pretty green shimmer with a tiny hint of blue. I was a little dissapointed though as it looks more blue toned and kind of teal'ish in the bottle, but it's still a gorgeous shade of green!


See how it looks more blue in the bottle than on the nail? It's even more apparent in real life.

This was 2 coats, and I had no application problems what so ever. I really like Nubar polishes, they have a good formula and goes on smoothly. Great brush size which makes them easy to control. The only thing I don't like is the bottlecaps, they're not that comfortable to hold, had hoped they would have a rubber coating like Orly does, and they are slightly too light. I think the brush would be even easier to control if the cap had a little more weight.

Thats all for now! Thanks for reading!

Congrats on making and finishing your own headboard. Amazing job an your bedroom looks so lovely. You've achieved the hotel chic look you wanted. Love the polish. Funny, I just picked that up to wear last night. Since I already have on green I decided to go with red. Looks gorgeous on you.
