It looks the same, right? Well it ain’t. It’s the redesign you’ve been hoping for and it’s finally here. Whip off that square rubberized cap, people! Do it with flair! Underneath, you’re going to find that thing you’ve always dreamed of… it’s the round, easy-to-maneuver handle thingy. Finally. And wait – there’s more!

Nars polish new brush

The brush! It’s new too. Yep, very Dior-like and very effective for my particular way of polishing. Am I happy? Yep, as a clam.

Nars Fearless 2014

nars nail polish fearless: Fearless is one of my favourite Nars polish shades ever. It’s that deep raspberry shade I have big problems avoiding. Add that new cap, brush, and formula and you know I needa get me some.

Nars Night Out 2014 copyright beautygeeks

nars nail polish night out: What a beautiful ultramarine blue! That’s 2 easy coats and the polish itself is kinda sticky so give it a couple minutes between coats and don’t be stingy with your coverage. On a side note, Shayna – I sniffed it and came up empty for P.Blue 29 770007. Ha!

So there you are, pretties. Lots of stunning NARS polish reformulated just for you. All this stuff ($27 CAD each) will be available August 1, 2014 at, Sephora, the Bay, and as noted, some are exclusive to Holt Renfrew. Happy shopping and I hope you enjoy the new formula, cap, and brush as much as I did!
