Nailed: NARS Koliary

Over the last few years, I've developed quite an obsession with 'unusual' nail polishes: Glitter, Shimmer, Holographic effects are pretty much all I wear these days. It takes some really special 'plain' colours to get me excited, as next to glitter polishes, most colours look a little dull.

NARS' upcoming Summer nail polish collection with Thakoon has put an end to this though... I'm absolutely loving the scorching brights. They are inspired by Indian spice markets and have officially reignited my love for 'normal' nail polishes again!
This is Koliary, a bright turquoise that leans on the side of blue rather than green. I absolutely love this shade paired with anything hot pink... It makes you look twice as tanned as you are too!
My experience with NARS nail polishes hasn't been great in the past, but the formulation of this is simply beautiful. It's so thick and creamy, you could get away with just one coat (but it looks better with two!)
I'm also lusting after the bright yellow... such a fun shade!

The NARS Summer Collection is available now, priced at £14 each.

  14. The yellow and the mint green are definitely my favourites at a glance. It's funny. Every time I hear about an amazing blusher, an incredible eyeshadow or in this case; a great nailpolish, it always seems to be Nars! I really must check them out already!

  31. This blue nail polish is a beautiful shade for spring and summer!
    But the mint green shade looks gorgeous, too!
    And the bright orange red one remands me of the China Glaze Riveting without shimmer from The Hunger Games collection!
