NARS Nail Polish in Orgasm
NARS Orgasm Nail Polish is one of those polishes i wanted for ever but never purchased because i thought i could find or create a capable dupe for it - but, as always, i probably spent more money and effort in the dupes than just buying the original. plus, i still wanted the original shade and never found satisfaction in the "dupes". so i finally decided to just get NARS Orgasm Nail Polish since i made an order on hqhair anyway and they offered 10 or 15% off that time.
now that it arrived i'm truly contented ;)
NARS polishes contain 15ml and cost 13.50£. a normal price in the high end section which i'm normally willing to pay for Chanel, Estée Lauder, Butter London etc., but i don't know why i hesitated so long for NARS.
Orgasm nail polish is a pinky peach with lots of yellow-gold shimmer. it's not too dense to look frosty or metallic but has a beautiful sheerness to it. i find it more peachy and much less pink than the Orgasm blusher and think it's like a hybrid of Orgasm and Luster blush in nail polish form :)
the bottle has a matte plastic cap (not rubberized) and a thin round brush. i would like a better design for the handle part, like a take-off-bulky-cap with a more handy one underneath, so you can control the brush better. plus a wide flat brush.
still, this shade applies evenly without streaks. its opaque in 3 coats but i like th lighter look with 2 coats. it looks more summery with your skin tone peeking through the fine shimmer.
it dries rather quickly to a medium-shiny finish, so i still put on a top coat to play up the shimmer.
it lasts over 2 days on me without visible tip wear but i had to remove it then. so i guess it would have a really good staying power. i loooove such shades on the toes for summer, it looks great on tanned feet (but it's also very nice on the fingers).
