Nail week day 3: Nubar Gold Feather

Day three of nail week brings you Nubar Gold Feather, this is one of the lovely bits that I won through the reader give-away on Get Lippie – one of my favorite blogs – go check her out, especially for her infamous Organic Wednesdays!

Anyway, back to the nail colours. Nubar is another fab nail varnish brand and this colour is no exception – a very pretty and unusual colour. A peachy-tan base with a greenish tinged shimmer in the bottle – on the nail the tan/peach base turns slightly more towards the bronze side of things, but the pretty shimmer shows through. It looks pretty much orange in the picture and was definitely not an easy one to photograph but it isn’t orange, at very most it is burnt orange/pale bronze/rose gold. There are many many names for it, what it boils down to is that it is another lovely colour.

My only slight negative for this is that I think it will look better on tanned skin (which despite my recent tanning escapades, I am not) so will be a colour I save for Summer use.

The picture above is the standard, two coats above a base coat. I found this one lasted OK, I wore it for over 24 hours (before changing colour for the sake of nail week) and no chips or wearing at all.

So, what do you think of Nubar polishes? Do you own any – what colours??
