Nubar Sun Gold Nail Lacquer

Nubar Sun Gold Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a fiery orange-red with golden orange shimmer. This is a duochrome finish, so depending on the viewing angle, the polish can look more like a pink-red that fades to orange or more of a gold, orange, and tangerine quality. The strength of the duochrome is nice–you can definitely see it and have fun with it in all types of lighting. I could not think of a dupe for this one! The duochrome really does make it a more unique shade. Nubar Pink Flame was the only thing that came to mind, but it is very different (though it is a duochrome), because it is much, much redder.

Nubar has an excellent formula that wears well–a full week with very minimal tip wear and no chipping–and is one of my favorites. The consistency isn’t too thick or too thin, which enables the polish to apply evenly without streaking. Sun Gold was opaque in two coats.  This kind of shade will naturally flatter those with warmer, yellower undertones, but I think the play of pink and red in it may still make it wearable even on cooler skin tones.
