NOTD: Nubar "Pink Flame"

I'm getting weary of winter and starting to covet bright summer days (although to be fair we don't get many of those in Scotland...) Hence I am needing something cheerful to remind myself that summer IS still coming and soon little snowdrops and daffodils will be peeking through the old leaves and the birds will sing again. I sound like Frodo on the Mountain of Doom, actually :( anyway onto my NOTD. It's the stunningly fiery "Pink Flame", a duochrome from Nubar. The formula was quite sheer and runny, so this is 3 coats, but could've done with 4. Poshe top coat over it. Dries fairly quickly, mainly because it's formula is so thin. Very hard to capture in a photo, Scrangie has an awesome photo of this colour in her October pinks blog entry.

Bottom line: I love this colour. It's cheerful, yet mysterious. Its a pinkier version of my beloved Sally Hansen Nail Prisms "Amber Ruby".

Also if you are feeling the pre-spring blues and crave some hope for summer, check out the AWESOME new China Glaze collection for summer, Summer Days, at All Lacquered Up now!
