Yesterday my friend David and I ventured to Longwood Gardens to view the final days of the Chrysanthemum festival. We walked through the meadow where the remnants of the wildflowers had dried to the color of hay and the sky was a watery blue. We spotted many songbirds and one golden butterfly before heading to the conservatory.
I wore Nubar's Raspberry Truffle, a lovely vampy brown with deep fushia shimmer pieces. While the base color is a dark brown, the glowing shimmer makes this shade read as purple in some lights. With two polishes remaining to try, I believe this will be my favorite of the Chocolate Truffle collection.
The photos above were taken along the edge of the meadow as the sun emerged from behind the soft white of the clouds. Seen below, the sunlight coming through the domed glass ceiling in the conservatory was more brightly illuminating.
The chrysanthemums were cultivated into the shape of parasols! The flowers were trained to grow to fit a wire framework. Two different varieties were grafted to a single growing plant to create the tri-color arrangement of blooms. Such artistry!
Nubar Chocolate Raspberry was perfectly opaque in two coats and dried easily with Diamont topcoat. I kept this on my nails for two days and were there not so many other lovelies beckoning to be worn, I would leave it on longer still. The color is beautiful! Ladies who wanted OPI Black Cherry Chutney to be brighter on the nail in all lights would find satisfaction in Nubar Chocolate Raspberry. I am happy Nubar sent me this polish to review.

Happy painting, ladies!
