It's been a while since I've wrote about a nail polish, but I thought I should at least mention my favourite polish for Autumn at the moment, 3.1 Phillip Lim for NARS - Dark Room. No surprise I'm into my darks at the moment, they just really get me in the Autumn/Christmas mood! If you're looking for some gorgeous Autumn darks, olives and festive shades, then you really need to check out this collection for NARS this Autumn!
On to my favourite at the moment though, Dark Room. NARS very kindly sent this to me and luckily it matches perfectly with a new Winter scarf I had bought recently, so I was even more excited to receive and try this. It comes in the same classic packaging as the other NARS polishes and just like everything else from NARS, it's beautiful. I'm also in love with the tapered thick brush, any nail polish with this kind of shape brush is already a winner in my books! They just make applying so easy and effortless because they fit your nail, making less room for mistakes. Also thanks to the brush shape, applying was so effortless and quick, I had both hands painted within a couple minutes, so these polishes are great if you're in a rush.
The shade it self is a beautiful deep navy green/blue, perfect for this season. I found the polish applied very opaque even after just one coat! Now I'm definitely a two coat kind of gal, but with the colour so deep already, I left it at just the one coat. The formula is super glossy and smooth and I had no problems with streaking, bubbling or consistency. I also found this to dry very quick, so if you're looking for a beautiful finish that you can apply in a hurry, then these polishes are definitely for you women on the go.
After a week I did have a few chips here and there, but I put that down to my job. I'm using my hands 24/7 in my job and I know I will never find a polish that will be able to compete with my work. Although it did chip, it was no more than any other polish I normally wear. I'm sure this would last for those in less physical jobs.

Overall I'm super impressed with the formula, the brush, the finish and how effortless and easy this polish is to apply. Of course the shade is gorgeous for right now and I've definitely got my eye on a couple others in the collection.
You can pick these beauties up here for just £15 each.

  2. It looks very good! I like this nail polish due to its high quality and the color is really wonderful. I know that some girls prefer to make manicure at beauty salons and some girls like to make it themselves. Personally I prefer to do it at home and I can be confident bout my health safety and quality of materials. I use angelaosborn.com.au nail polish. What about you?
