NOTD: Nubar Moon Shadow

Long time no see, huh? I'll explain my extended leave of absence in the following posts; now on to the polish.

Moon Shadow. One of Nubar duochromes. Nubar makes really mean duochromes (check Scrangie - I'm sure she posted a bunch of Nubar duos a while ago). This one is purple/brown/amber-green. Really complex and really gorgeous. Main color - purple - has this glowy quality to it. I'm very picky when it comes to purples, but I love this one.

Under some light purple leans a bit on a brown side; very warm brown:

Moon Shadow is not one of the subtle duochromes, when you need to squint to see a change in color. It's a bold and true duochrome; as obvious as a chameleon.

I dunno about you, but I said "Wow!":

Couple of words about application. This one required three coats; in two coats it still looked like an ugly, weird muddy gray (huh?). Talk about ugly duckling.

PS: Don't forget to click on the pics to enlarge them. Totally worth it.
