NARS Cosmetics has re-released some of their older nail colors in the Vintage Nail Collection for a limited time only.

These are all colors new to me so I thought maybe some of you would want to see them as well.

The collection as a whole doesn’t make me fall over with excitement, to be honest, but there are some nice colors in there. I guess when you have as much nail polish as I do after awhile, you expect BIG things. 🙂

The formula is definitely pretty great on these. There was only one I had any issues with. All were quite wonderful, as you would expect from NARS.

Blue Lagoon

Blue Lagoon is a frosty pale blue shimmer. Though NARS calls this an iridescent color, I didn’t really see that on the nail. This is a really pretty color, but a little on the sheer side. This was three coats and you can see the visible nail line.

Cha Cha Cha

Cha Cha Cha is a pale frosty tangerine shimmer. This too is a little on the sheer side and it wasn’t really my kind of color. This was three coats.


Tallulah is a medium purple creme. This is the one I had issues with. As you can see it’s pretty patchy and uneven on. This was only two coats, so maybe after three it would have evened out. I like the colors, but probably have a bunch like it already.


Hunger is a bright tomato red creme. This is very pretty and flattering, which kind of surprised me since I’m not much of an orange gal. This was two coats.


Zizi is a sheer base with gold and orange glitter. I’m sure this is meant to be a layering color, otherwise it’s too sheer. I think this would probably look cool over Hunger actually. This was two coats.


I think this is a decent collection with a couple pretty colors, but nothing that is all that unique. The formula was really nice though (except Tallulah) and if you don’t have any of these colors, I do think you might like them.

Whaddya think?
