Nars Nail Polish: Fury and Galathee

Nars Fall 2013 Nails05

Nars Fall 2013 introduces two new nail polish colors–the deep purple cream Fury and the dove-gray cream Galathee ($19 each).

I liked Nars Fury more than I thought that I would. This formula feels like it has more volume, so it applies a little more plushy that the typical Nars polishes we’ve seen over the last year. So, this lays down with a more luxurious feel and look. There’s a touch of red to the purple which gives the color a nice vibrancy. I can see this color going well with so many Fall colors. Below, I’ve added Guerlain’s Gel Top Coat for extra brilliance and wear. By the way, I’ve been wearing this Guerlain Gel Top Coat for weeks and I love it. It adds a good 2-3 days of wear to my manicure and doesn’t seem to dry out or thicken in the bottle.

Nars Galathee is a pretty dove gray cream. The formula is thinner than Fury, it was near-opaque in two coats (below). The color gives a flat, modern look.

Here, I played with Galathee as a base color, adding a Sephora Formula X Topcoat in Chaotic. This topcoat, which includes bits and bars that give a paint-splatter effect, will be part of a breathtakingly large 200-lacquer release due out in September. It looks exciting–there are lots of interesting textures and colors in this new line (most shades will be in the $10.50-14.00 range).

Overall, I like both Nars Fury and Galathee, although Fury seems to be more unusual and I prefer its formula. Overall, both are welcome additions to the Nars Fall line.

    I was surprised to see that you said the Sephora X polishes aren’t out yet, because they used to be online, albeit about 65 shades and not 200. But they’re not on the website anymore! I think I’ve seen them pretty recently in-store though (not sure though). I bought Chaotic several months ago, though!

      I am going by the paperwork that they’ve sent, as well as by a search on their site.

    Galathee and Chaotic together looks just like a Pollock. I love it!! I’m not one for glitter or paillettes, but I may need to pick this one up.

      Right? I’m not a nail art aficionado, but my artsy side really admired this combination.

    Hi Amy,

    I’ve been admiring NARS Galathee from afar for some time now! Dove greys are among my favorite colors to wear — I’m just not sure how it would look on my nails. I’m hoping to try it in store sometime!
