ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Thakoon for NARS

Left to my own devices I would change my nail color every other day. This Spring/Summer, NARS is making it difficult for me to be practical and keep my polish for a week.  The Thakoon for Nars collection features six nail polishes inspired by Thakoon’s Spring 2012 collection. “Super vibrant, exuberant color channels the pulsating hues of an Indian spice market for a bold dose of fashion-forward color at your fingertips.”

The polish dries to a glossy finish and lasts about 4 days chip free with my doing dishes without gloves. The UV protection in the polish also helps to maintain the glossy, bold color. Two coats does the trick but if you are in a hurry one coat will do for a slightly less glossy look.  The polishes are free of  toluene, formaldehyde, and DBP (3 Free.)

Check out the colors:

Lal Mirchi – Mandarin Red

Kutki – Powder Blue

Ratin Jot – Orchid Purple

Koliary – Cyan Blue

Anardana – Azalea Pink

Amchoor – Bright Yellow

Above I am wearing Ratin Jot with a Koliary Zebra like stripes. To make the stripe I cut away about 3/4 of an old nail polish applicator brush bristles,  rinsed it in acetone then simply free handed the stripes. To save for future use, wash in acetone or nail polish remover when done and store with your other nail supplies.

Each polish retails for $18 and can be purchased at,  Bloomingdale’s, Sephora, NordstromSaks Lal Mirchi – Mandarin red is Available exclusively at NARS 413 Bleecker St. Boutique 646.459.2323.
