Nubar - Peacock Feathers
A few weeks back I finally was able to get a couple of Nubar polishes I had on my wish list for the longest time. Nubar was having a one-day (I think??) 20% off sale on their website, so I had to seize the moment. Like many polish afficionadas out there, I had to get Peacock Feathers. I've never owned any duochrome polishes previously, and heard Nubar's are the best. Peacock Feathers does not disappoint in the least. Capturing it's beauty was very difficult. If you look at it straight on, it looks deep indigo blue/purple. Shift your fingers slightly and you get emerald green, and at times you may catch glimpses of gold. You can definitely see the different shades better in the bottle than on my nails.
As far as the application, I used 3 coats and 2 coats of ridgefilling base coat, since on previous occasion, my other Nubar polish was sheer enough to have VNL. I don't think it was necessary for Peacock Feathers since the color is darker than the one I was using before, but I just wanted peace of mind. The application was pretty good. I can't remember how many days I wore this since it was a while ago (plus my memory isn't as great as it used to be...sleep deprivation and all - those with children know what I mean...hehehehe).
I just got a new camera so hopefully I'll be able to post better swatch pics.
