Before chopping down to nubbins, I decided to get a few more nail polishes swatched while I had beautiful long nails. I picked up this awesome nubar duochrome - Purple Beach - while at Cosmoprof North America. It's still available on their website (product S203) for $8.00.
I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and a top of CND Air Dry. I was super pleased that this color was opaque in 2 coats, no base of black needed!
In the sun, the purple color is quite apparent and on the edges of the nail, you can just slightly see the green. I completely looked past the streaky/pearl finish on this polish because it's so pretty - you don't really realize it!
In the shade, again the purple is more apparent than anything else. I attempted a picture inside with the flash but the camera couldn't focus properly so I ended up with lots of blurry pictures.
I told you this was a duochrome! The green duochrome is best seen in indirect light. I couldn't stop taking pictures once I figured out how to get that green to be seen, because on your nails, the duochrome is super apparent. It's nice and strong and you'll constantly be twisting your hand around. Definitely a happy Krystal here with this polish.
nubar can be purchased on their website for $8.00 a bottle in the US. They do have international retailers in Russia, Sweden and the UK. You can like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter although their Twitter has been a bit bare lately.
