Nubar Peacock Feathers: Multi-chrome-y Goodness

Nubar is quickly becoming my go-to brand for duo/multi-chrome polishes. Nubar Peacock Feathers is a particularly popular multi-chrome among polish addicts, with good reason. It’s a pretty impressive shade. A lot of duo-chromes are duds, very flashy in the bottle but they lack the same intensity and variation of color on the nail. Peacock Feathers is the exact opposite of a dud. I actually got flashes of frosty purple, blue, and green, constantly. It’s purple in most lighting. When it’s not purple, it’s green – the blue comes out mostly in-doors but it is there. Sometimes between the blue and purple flash I got a very pretty greenish, gray ashy shade. My picture doesn’t do this color justice but you can see some of the variation of color reflected in the bottle. The only downside is that I’m currently going through an evil weird “ugh purple” phase that just came out of no where. Purples are the roots of my addiction. I *love* purple but lately I just can’t stand the sight of the color. I hope I get back to my purple loving self soon because it seriously comprises 35% of my collection. As an aside, my bottle of Seche is reaching the dead zone, the stage at which even an ocean thinner cannot revive it – that’s why the gap area looks so weird.

    Desperately looking for an old bottle, partial bottle, or full bottle of Nubar Peacock Feathers. I can’t find it anywhere!!! The last bottle I saw sold for $80 on EBay and I haven’t seen another all year! I notice you’ve had yours awhile, interested in selling some of it or trading? Know anyone else that might? Nubar says they had to discontinue it because the pigment isn’t available…..they are looking to find another pigment but it will “be awhile” but I can’t seem to find a site where I can post for someone to see it so I’m forced to write everyone, one at a time!

    I got the nail polish bug after all the duochromes came and went!! I’m having to but them all with hefty price tags but I’m doing it!
    Please let me know if you can help me. ~Maria
