Nectar Sunglasses is a fun-loving shade shop that offers a fun new way to buy stylish, unique sunglasses. Nectar’s Weekly Limited Edition Sunnies gives consumers 7-day access to custom-made sunglasses that have never been produced before and never will be produced again after the week is up. Nectar’s sunglasses range in price from $25 to $35.
Nectar’s sunglasses feature an option between polarized and non-polarized lenses. In either case, Nectar’s lenses all reduce glare off of water and snow and come with a scratch resistant film over the lenses to help your shades last. The lenses also provide 100% UV protection, to shield your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Finally, the lenses are made out of an impact resistant polycarbonate to protect against accidental drops.
The frame is made out of a lightweight thermoplastic which allows it to flex and take a beating without breaking. All of the sunglasses have the Nectar logo embossed on the arm. Every pair of sunglasses comes with a Nectar branded microfiber pouch for storage, travel, and cleaning.
Nectar Sunglasses has a huge selection of shades in every combination of frame styles and lens colors that you can think of. They’ve got about 18 different frame styles to choose from in both polarized and non-polarized varieties. Additional frame styles will be available in June. Nectar also features sunglasses specifically designed for glassblowers, indoor growers, and coders that block out specific types of light for each line of work to protect the user’s eyes.
The folks at Nectar were kind enough to send me a pair of their Parday shades to try out. The name comes from a combination of the words Party and Day, fun! The Parday shades come with a matte grey thermoplastic frame with blue/green iridescent lenses. They’re a very stylish pair of sunglasses and can be worn with almost anything. The Parday shades come with a polarized film on the lenses, 100% UV protection, and scratch protection.
While I really like the style of the shades and think they look good on my face, I’m afraid that Nectar’s sunglasses are not made to last. Although the lenses are said to be scratch resistant and the frame is flexible, the frame doesn’t feel like it’s made out of high-quality materials. This is something that really can’t be determined until after months of consistent use, but after using the glasses for a few weeks, this is the impression I’m left with.
The good thing, though, is that Nectar Sunglasses has a great return policy. They’ll replace your sunglasses for free if they break within 30 days and they’ll also return them for free within 10 days if you just don’t like the look of the sunglasses when you receive them. If your glasses break after 30 days, they’ll replace them for only $10 for non-polarized shades and $15 for polarized shades. That’s really not a bad deal if you like your Nectar Sunnies.
