This summer Nars and famed designer Thakoon collaborated and created 6 limited edition nail polish shades. The collection was inspired by an Indian spice market. The result is a vivid and seductive range of colours that invoke the heady fragrances and bold shades of an indian market place.
I was quite hesitant to procure one of the Nars polishes as they seem to have received, on the whole, negative reviews for texture and wear. However,since I am a lover of all things Nars, I took the plunge and bought Ratin Jot from this collection.
The colour was even more beautiful on my nails than in the bottle. Ratin Jot is described as an "orchid purple." The colour is a a red-based purple that is bold and pretty. I painted two coats which was more than enough to reach colour saturation. The texture was creamy and streak free. The finish had a lovely gloss to it. The formula is pretty chip-resistant and wore for about a week. My manicure was not professionally done, so was not finished on all the edges with top coat which prolonges wear and since I am forever busy with my hands I though it wore very well. I am definitely eyeing the Koliary (cyan blue) and Anardana (Fuschia pink). All the colours in this collection will add a pop of colour to any summer outfit.
They are toluene, formaldehyde, DBP free and retail at $18.
Any colour that you just have to have?
