NARS Nail Polish for August 2014

Over the past two weeks, I had the pleasure of testing out 7 out of 42 shades from the newly formulated NARS nail polish range. I cannot compare the new formulation to the old, since I’ve never tried the former, but there are some notable qualities about this lacquer. The application is an absolute dream due to the shape of the brush and removable cap. The formula dries to a shine finish, even without a top coat. I was thoroughly impressed with the colors and their opacity to say the least.
