I was inspired last night by the lovely G of Nouveau Cheap to paint my tips. She had blogged about Nailtini Janie Bryant Limited Edition Nail Lacquers and the color Bourbon Satin caught my attention. So I grabbed Nubar’s Gold Leaf polish to paint my nails.
I used China Glaze’s Cowgirl Up as my accent color.
Gold Leaf is a gorgeous gold duochrome with brown-burgundy, to me. This makes Cowgirl Up compliment the shade nicely.
What do you think? Have you been inspired by someone lately? If so, please share

Cowgirl Up is SOOOOOO gorgeous!!!!! :O
Yes it is! You can probably still grab it online at Transdesign or head2toe beauty or 8ty8beauty.
That whole collection was gorgeous.
i really need to get more Nubar shades- I only have one, an awesome holographic green…now that I think of it, I think I’ll use it tonight! BTW, any idea how close this is to the MAC Villain shade “Bad Fairy”?
I don’t think it’s close at all. All the pictures I’ve seen of Bad Fairy have it being a magenta gold. Temptalia describes it as ruby red, molten lava copper, and gold. All Lacquered Up did a great comparison of Bad Fairy to The Show Must Go On.
I wanted to get my hands on Bad Fairy but it was sold out everywhere. I have the dupes though, from Orly’s collection.
I like Nubar but I hate ordering from them directly. Their customer service sucks, they rip you off with shipping costs, etc. I have had good luck ordering from a seller on ebay, but I haven’t ordered any in a long time.
Gold Leaf is described as copper bronze and gold, and it is pretty but it really does lack the red of Bad Fairy yet you can see like a burgundy shade around the edges that I find matches with Cowgirl Up nicely.
Peacock Feathers is a gorgeous shade with dark purple, flashes of deep teal green and gold.
Moon Shadow is a deep shimmery burgundy wine.
Sour Candy is a teal-tinted top coat with large and small pieces of teal and silver glitter. It’s a great way to add instant bling to your mani.
Those are the 4 I tried, and I think I sold Moon Shadow. Can’t remember if I still have Peacock Feathers or not.
OMG, this shade looks gorgeous on you! I’m so glad I could inspire you–you inspire me *all* the time to step out of my earthtone comfort zone and wear more colorful shades on my eyes. xo
Thank you G! I’m glad I can inspire you I’m doubly glad you inspired me with those gorgeous polishes.
Well, YOU’ve inspired me to pick a gold for my next mani. I went to my salon today for a pedi – my nail tech of 7+ years does a much better job than I do, and gotta keep the economy going, right? – and came back with Opi Diva of Geneva on my toes.
That’s awesome Soos!
Awesome! This is sso so pretty. I love Gold Leaf ssoo much! I recently picked up a few of the holiday shades from Sally Hansen and I LOVE Golden Ticket. If you see it PICK IT UP (only on sale not for $6+) I have a swatch of it on my site somewhere!!
I’ll have to look for it Molly! Thanks for the rec
Oooh, that’s lovely.
Thank you Ana
man, those polishes are SO pretty and unique! i’ve never used Nubar before but i’m thinking about ordering a few to try out.
I love Nubar’s colors but I have had bad customer service experiences with them.
