Nubar Peacock Feathers

It's hard to believe, but I used to go to a nail supply place that had the motherload of Nubar Peacock Feathers. They weren't terribly expensive; I used to buy a few when I was there and give them away as an extra in swaps I participated in on MUA.  So one day, I gave away my last bottle and went back to the supply place but they were all gone.  I think someone else found the magical supply and bought them up! No more were to be had because that happened around the time they discontinued it.  So I had to resort to eBay to get a bottle and let's just say I paid more for a bottle than I was buying them for at the nail supply place!  I think I eventually swapped for a back up bottle too.  I'm not sure why I have a backup; duochromes are OK but not my favourite finish and I'm sure I'll never finish the first bottle, never mind the backup.  I'm sure one of the bottles will show up on my blog sale, whenever I eventually get around to destashing. Anyway, one day back in the spring, I decided to go with something a little darker and decided upon Nubar Peacock Feathers; this is what I came up with!

Started with three coats of Nubar Peacock Feathers, no top coat.  Here's a lot of pix of Nubar Peacock Feathers; I took a lot to try to show it's many sides!

Topped with OPI The Man With a Golden Gun for some interest.

Topped with KBShimmer before stamping.

Stamped using MoYou Holy Shapes-08 using Funky Fingers Gesso.  I wanted an image that you could see the duochrome visible in the stamping, but try as I might, I couldn't get a good pix of the duochrome once the stamping was on.

Top coated with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.

Sorry for going crazy over the top in showing pix but hopefully someone out there appreciates them!

Thanks for looking!
