Thakoon for NARS Nail Polish Reviews, Swatches and Photos

Following suit to the gorgeous makeup looks at Fashion Week, NARS Cosmetics extends its collaboration with designer Thakoon to bring us a limited-edition collection of nail polishes for the summer.

NARS Thakoon Nail Polish reviews

The polishes come in 6 vibrant, candy-colored colors inspired by India and are toluene, formaldehyde and DBP free. They contain polymer for a durable, chip-resistant finish and UV protection to prevent discoloration.

From left to right:
* Ratin Jot – orchid purple.
* Anardana – raspberry pink.
* Lal Mirchi – orange red.
* Amchoor – bright yellow.
* Koliary – cyan blue.
* Kutki – powder/baby blue.

The colors are all super pretty and great for the summer. I have always LOVED pinks and oranges so my favorites naturally go to Ratin Jot, Anardana and Lal Mirchi.

Application was a breeze. The polishes applied evenly and effortlessly with great opacity. The only exception goes to Amchoor, which was a little streaky regardless of how I applied it.

The wear is also good. With my must-have Seche Vite top-coat, the polishes can stay on a good week without chipping. Yay :)

Picture time!
