Wiggle Yer Fingers

Today's nail polish of the day is Nubar Peacock Feathers, a sexily gorgeous purple and green duochrome. Here it is looking rather purple:

And here is a picture of me contorting my hand at a very awkward angle to show how it goes green in the shade.

Shade makes the purple go green. Yummy.

Naturally, I trashed a bit whilst doing something dull and mundane and decided to pretty it up a bit lot with some Nfu.Oh 51, and spent some time just wiggling my fingers about, going, "ooh, that's nice" and stuff like that.

Oh my.

Imagine my sadface as I ruined my nails by doing housework shortly after the above photo was taken, so I took the opportunity to try out a pattern on Konad plate m36 using MUA Shade 2. It then needed to be mattified with some ELF Matte top coat as the gloss was drowing out the black geometric shapes.

Don't like it but it's better than pretty nails with chunks missing.

The photo does not do the colour justice as the good light had gone -- it's all lovely and colourful IRL, and looks quite effective against the black, but here it looks a bit muted and *yawn*. I'd imagine it would look quite good with some black crackle over it, actually, next time I wreck an Nfu.Oh job I'll try it.

Because of this post alone, I have spent the last 3 DAYS tracking down Nfu.Oh 51 (Which I just ordered from fabuloustreet.com) and then, frustratingly, the bulk of the 3 days was spent unsuccessfully trying to track down a bottle of the now discontinued Nubar Peacock Feathers polish. D: I'm SO bummed! Do you know of anything similar, perhaps a dupe for the Peacock Feathers duochrome? I'm in the U.S., so anywhere that will ship to me is preferred. I LOOOOVE your blog!!!
