Life On Nars: Their Reformulated Nail Polish Is Out Of This World

There is much to love about the Nars cosmetic line. It’s lways right on-trend, while always remaining classic and elegant, and never trendy. I’ve always admired their nail polishes but somehow never bought one. Their colours are super chic, and I recall lemming several of their collections. The 2012 Andy Warhol Collection stands out in my memory – the purple nail polish, New York Dolls, was amaze!

I was very excited to hear about the relaunch of the newly reformulated iconic Nars Nail Polish. With an innovative combination of resins and polymers, this new formula will improve wear and strengthen nails. The removable cap and specially designed brush are incredible – seriously, I can practically cover my whole nail in one swipe. The comprehensive 42-shade collection includes 19 new shades and 23 fan favourites, so there is seriously something for everyone. The new Base and Top Coats complete the chip-defying, colour- enhancing trifecta for an iconic nail look with serious staying power.

I can attest to the new formula being totally amazing. The consistency is perfect and self leveling, and again I have to mention the brush, which is probably the best one I’ve ever used. I haven’t tried the Top or Base Coats, but the colours work beautifully with my OPI Nail Envy Base Coat and Orly Sec’n Dry Quick Dry Top Coat ( I apply Julep Freedom Polymer Top Coat the next day and my manis last foreva). All of these colours were perfect coverage in two coats and dried in a reasonable amount of time.

    Interesting — I wanted to know how this compares to Chanel Ballerina which has been my go-to polish for ten years! It definitely looks like Ballerina but I’m wondering about the wear and application of Nars. I can wear a single-coat of Ballerina with no noticeable wear and no chips for about a week, and it looks like your picture.
