Previously I reviewed Nars’ Pokerface with a CND Effects top coat. Here are some pictures of this shimmery lilac beauty on her own. Although this is not a color I would associate with the holiday season, it is a beautiful breath of fresh air for fall and winter.
I took my pictures in the afternoon, and although it was sunny outside my natural light pictures came out too orange. Even though it is the same this time every year, it seems like it is getting dark so darned early! The flash picture is a pretty good representation of the color and shows off the shimmer.
Application was very good. Two coats with a top coat shown.
Pokerface is one of Nars’ new holiday colors. It is a lovely cool lilac with a subtle silver shimmer. I applied it while I was watching a movie with my family. I often watch tv while I polish my nails, but I didn’t do a very good job this time! I loved the color, but did not want to take a picture of the substandard manicure. It seemed like the perfect time to try my first CND Effects top coat, and see if I could save this dud mani. Fun! I really like the way it came out! I will try to post a swatch of Pokerface by itself soon, but I think it looks pretty cool with the Ice Blue Shimmer on top
Application was good (the only issues were related to poor application). Two coats of Poker Face, with a top coat of CND Effects in Ice Blue Shimmer.
Purple Rain is my first NARS polish. The blue and pink shimmer was difficult to capture, but it is gorgeous!
This is two coats with a top coat. Application was a breeze, and it dried quickly too! The color is just amazing. The look changes significantly depending on the lighting, and it really dazzles in the sun. Although they are a tad pricey at $16, I am looking forward to buying more NARS nail polishes.
