NARS has released a series of reformulated polishes with higher shine, more flexibility, and a longer-lasting formula. There are 43 shades in all, and I have fourteen for a quick preview ($20 each). As with the NARS 3.1 Philip Lim collection (previewed here) (available on Nars.com and Sephora), the new permanent polish range has a wide, flat brush for easy application. These are available at Nordstrom, Sephora, Nars online, Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdales,
I love the new brush-the shorter bristles and shape allow for quick, foolproof application.
Here’s the brush with dipped in Nars Blow-Up, a bright orange. Some of my favorite shades are these vibrant colors–Paros (red brown), Elbrus (plum), Torre del Oro (cherry red), and Blow-Up (Mandarin orange):
Some quick swatches:
Here are the three metallic shades– Pastorale (rose gold), Milos (rich gold), and Amarapura (silver chrome):
Here are three dusty, off-neutral shades– Shameless Red (pink flamingo), Zakynthos (beige), and Obscura (lavender charcoal):
Finally, here are four pastel shades– Ikiru (light blue), Ithaque (sheer, light pink), Thasos (mint green), and Kalymnos (lilac).
I”m working on editing some on-the-nail swatches for a more in-depth review. In the meantime, enjoy these lovely colors. These are available at Nordstrom, Sephora, Nars online, Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdales,
