I don't have lots to say about the NARS Guy Bourdin Holiday nail polish collection. A picture is worth 1000 words, right? Besides, you can hotlink here for the inspiration story of young François Nars and the work of legendary French fashion photographer Guy Bourdin (1928-1991). Not that you need to know the background to appreciate the hues that make up the NARS Guy Bourdin nail polish collection.
NARS Guy Bourdin nail polish in Union Libre: Perfect bubblegum pink. J’adore.
NARS Guy Bourdin nail polish in Tomorrow’s Red: Solid bright poppy red. It’s a OCW!! Yep, that’s one coat. I love a One Coat Wonder!!
NARS Guy Bourdin nail polish in Follow Me: Beet red. NARS calls it “deep fuchsia,” I call it beet. I could also call it raspberry. Fuchsia? Nope.
NARS Guy Bourdin nail polish in No Limits: Fuchsia purple with a satin, almost matte finish. This one was tricky to work with. It dries quickly, doesn’t self-level particularly well, and requires long, fast even strokes to get decent coverage. That’s three coats you see with no top coat. I really dig the colour but anything that makes me do three coats kinda gives me hives.
Except for No Limits, these NARS Guy Bourdin polishes apply like a dream and deliver durability and a super-shiny finish without top coat. I have big love for NARS nail polish. You?
The Nars Guy Bourdin Holiday Color Collection Nail Polish will be available November 1st at NARScosmetics.ca, Sephora, Holt Renfrew, Hudson's Bay and Murale; shades Follow Me and Union Libre available at select Sephoras.
