Nubar's Peacock Feathers

Duo-chromes are always such fun to wear but such a pain to photograph, well atleast for me! You would think I learned my lesson after wearing Chanel's Perdoit that I would give duo-chromes a break. Since polishes like this require millions of photos and even then none of them really capture how amazing they are. Peacock feathers has always been one I wanted to wear but after swatching a finger i'd always pick something else. It just never really hit the spot when i've got other more cheerful colors to pick from. So anyway I finally just grabbed it and got it over with. The polish in the bottle is like a crazy oil spill rainbow and i have to say this polish does a decent job of looking like that on the nail. does require a few coats to build up the color i did 3-4. This is also a discontinued color so it will be a little harder to find but I did spot it on Ebay so if you really want it keep an eye out for it. So without further ado here's a bunch of pics showing off some of it's many looks.





With a Flash it looks like a deep navy color

This color really constantly changes my thumb has some green in it and the bases of the nails have a hint of greenish brown in them.

Sunlight shows off the yummy purple with touches of blue in it!

Check out that emerald green, heh here's a good picture of how my index finger bends down : )

Here the emerald green is even deeper! Also because this polish required several coats when i put on the SV it shrunk the polish by the cuticles, i hate it when that happens!


Oddly enough the base of this polish is a light blue teal color. On the right is one coat and on the left is 3.

  10. This is such a cult favorite of so many. I think it's sold out as I recall and HTF. It is really hard to get duochromes (and holos) to show up anything like they are via photography.

  11. It's such a stunning color! Also, that's why I stopped using Seche, such a shame when it does that. I think your photographs show all the pretty angles of it! :)

  19. I know doesn't make sense to discontinue your money makers, well unless they don't make you money since they cost more to make , heh who knows!

    ReplyDelete
  20. heh i'll have to send you a washcloth to wipe up all that drool with! : )

  21. I don't have wildlife, i have the iris dust which is sorta similar, I love polishes that aren't just your standard primary colors! Hope you enjoy your purchase!

  22. I know i hate how SV does that but i've tested out other top coats and i keep coming back to SV because it just works well that the minor setbacks with shrinkage don't bother me

    ReplyDelete
  23. yes! but i prefer looking at it in the bottle more than on the nails!

    ReplyDelete
  24. yes so hard to photograph, but it's fun trying to until it comes time to go though and pick pictures then its not fun, heh 

    ReplyDelete

  28. it's rare that you get polish that has a much lighter base like this, or at least i don't own many that are like it.
