NARS Nail Polish!
NARS Nail Polish in the color Purple Rain, ($18.00), is one of my favorite purple nail polishes. First arriving in the spring of 2010, NARS Cosmetics has re-released it and advertises it as as having a “new, long-wearing formula that provides a tough, chip-resistant finish with UV protection to prevent polish discoloration.” I completely agree, and am so glad that I purchased it again.
Check out the absolutely gorgeous NARS nail polish color! You can really see the shimmer.
The NARS nail polish formula is great, and I would definitely recommend the Purple Rain shade. The nail polish is easy to apply, and it’s a nice rich formula. I applied two coats of this shimmer polish (and no top coat) on my nails in the photos below. I changed my polish after 5 days, and my nails still looked super! Very shiny and amazingly, chip free!

NARS Cosmetics is cruelty free, and NARS nail polish is free of toluene, formaldehyde and DBP.
Described by NARS as being a “gothic purple,” I have hopefully captured the really beautiful deep purple color with red and dark violet-blue shimmer.
Fake plant alert! Checking out various purples…the magenta petal has a gothic purple on the edges.
