Chanel Nail Polish NARS

NARS Bad Influence Nail Polish

November 5, 2010

NARS Holiday 2010 collection includes Bad Influence ($16), another addition to the taupe nail trend (also discussed here and here).  Overall, NARS Bad Influence is the closest polish that I’ve seen to Chanel’s Particuliere ($23)–the colors are nearly identical.  NARS is slightly more neutral/gray and the faintest touch darker in normal light.  Also, NARS is ever-so-slightly thinner in consistency, although both should be applied using two coats to full opacity.

This leaves the final differentiator–the price.  NARS is $16, Chanel is $23.  But, well, it is Chanel.

Here are some very quick swatches that I did this afternoon, with Nars Bad Influence in the center, Chanel Particuliere above, and just for fun Deborah Lippmann’s Waking up in Vegas at the bottom:

    It also looks like OPI’s “Over the Taupe” which I have on right now.
