for the record, i don't even like gold :P
this is my first gold polish. actually it's a gold/burgundy metallic duochrome. and it's a stunner. i had the same issue with "Gold Leaf" as with "Peacock"--took forever to dry. i had to re-do three nails because applying the Nubar Diamont top coat caused drag marks. so that was annoying. maybe i'll use a hair dryer in the future. seriously, i had to wait about 10 minutes before i could safely apply a top coat, and i only used 2 coats of each Nubar polish i've had this problem with.
you can see the duochrome pretty well in the last two photos.
