Nabi nail polish

I found Nabi nail polishes on Ebay and I had to try them out - especially because of the writing on the bottle that says: ''The best nail polish I've ever used''. That's pretty self-confident, right?


Here are the colors I chose:



Navy blue was a big disappointment. It looks almost black in the bottle and I thought it would look really nice on nails. Guess what. It's so sheer you'll never get that navy color out of it. Don't get me wrong. The color is wonderful. I kind of prefer it over the navy blue. But why does it have to be so sheer? On this picture I used 4 coats ... I think that tells everything. Four coats are my limit.


Metal silver looks awesome in the bottle. It has small shimmer and it almost looks like molten metal. This one is a stunner! This one is three coater and it's blingtastic.


Last but not least , here is Neon Purple. This one was a bit gloopy, so I added a couple drops of thinner in it. Now it applies smoothly and it's opaque in one coat! There are two coats on the picture, though. It doesn't look neon, but it is a strong color and it dries matte/satiny. I left this one on as my NOTD.


To sum it up: I've definitely used better nail polishes than Nabi. I can't say the quality is bad, because I only have three shades and they all have different formulas. I'm quite pleased with silver and purple one as for the navy, not so much. They do have a big flaw: they contain Dibutyl Phthalate. And the smell is quite strong.

Nabi nail polishes come in 150 interesting shades but unfortunately only few of them can be found on Ebay. If you know a place to purchase these, let us know.

Thanks for looking!

  1. I've never heard of this brand. Really bold of them to say they're the worlds best! Shame about the navy. How about layering over black? The silver is a nice foil. I really love the neon purple. That's a great color.

  2. Yeah, bold of them to say that. And not smart if I may add. :) It's possible that navy blue would just look black layered over black. I'll definitely try layering and I'll post my findings.

  3. I'm from the Bay Area in California and I have the light green one. I bought it from the flee market for $3 a few weeks before summer. It's really opaque after two coats and I like it but I don't love it. The consistency is average but the application is smooth. The color was as close as I could find to a minty green color and it's a few shades darker than OPI's Gargantuan Green Grape. Hope you end up finding more!

  5. bought Nabi glitters @ a $0.99 store here in Tujunga, CA! they were actually $1.99, but whatever! got so excited forgot to ask them about that! they also sell a brand called "Santee" that have dupes of most of the Nabi's! those sell for $0.99! so far so good on application, mine are just glitters with clear base after all. i'd say worth the 2 bucks.

  9. They sell them at Agaci stores here in Texas. Agaci is like a Forever 21. I have 3 different Nabi nail polishes. The bottle doesn't look like yours though. But they are all AMAZING and come on super smooth. I think you may have gotten old nail polish or maybe it was a bad batch
