Morning peeps! NARS has a really fabulous fall 2009 collex coming out and it includes an absolutely stunning nail polish color called Tokaido Express.
I can honestly say I do not own a single other nail polish that looks like this one. They describe it as being a “black amethyst infused with gold” which is somewhat accurate from what I saw, but it’s so much more…Check it out!
Tokaido Express macro shot
When I look at this color I don’t really think of it as a typical “blackened” polish. It’s definitely dark and vampy, but it’s this amazing plum color that is packed with gold, pink and lavender micro shimmer. You can see in the macro shot above all the colored shimmer and when you see it in real life, it’s really quite stunning. This does not look black indoors either, which is a huge plus. The formula was fabulous as you would expect NARS to be. It was smooth, flowed nicely into the nails and totally opaque in two coats. This color for me is one of THE best colors for fall I have seen yet and I think I am going to get a lot of wear out of it!
You can find this as well as other NARS polishes on their website here or at Nordstrom. They retail for $16.00 each.
What do you guys think about this one, is it on your fall *must have* list or does the price turn you off?
