I got this duochrome thinking that it would be a firery orange red. application was dreamy just like all the other duochromes, very little cleanup and faily opaque in one coat.
i wound up using two coats and took a long hard look at the color in all kinds of lighting. its BARELY duochrome. pretty much just a nice bronzey orange...with brush strokes everywhere. even in full sun its just bronze to me.
i took this off and put on nubar pink flame instead and thats a great duochrome.
would not purchase this again since theres lots of other bronze colors i can get that don't cost 8 bucks.

Sun Gold is another phenomenal duochrome offering from Nubar. It shifts from a warm bronzey orange-gold to a truly singular warm pink, with a stop at coral in between. All the aspects of color in this polish are flattering to my warm skin tone.
The formula is excellent--I achieved acceptable coverage in 2 coats but added a 3rd for absolute opacity at all angles. Duochromes tend to be on the sheer side so I was expecting more of a struggle, but this polish was so easy to apply.
Bottle and brush are, as usual, excellent. The brush is easy to control, not too wide, not too narrow, fans well, has good flex and spring, and holds neither too much nor too little polish. The brush is easy to hold and the cap feels good in the hand while polishing.
My office is business casual with a slight emphasis on "business". This polish is comfortable to wear in my office and, bonus, looks phenomenal in fluorescent lighting. In fact, it looks phenomenal in all lighting. No waiting for the sun to come out to enjoy this one!
All in all, one of my new favorites. If you are warm-toned and desire a pink, but think you cannot wear pink, try this one. It's beautiful. Highly recommended.
