How do you feel about sheer nail polishes? If you answered, “Yes! Love ’em. Gimme-gimme-gimme!” I’d like to direct your attention to a Disco Inferno.
NARS Disco Inferno. It’s from their new 2013 spring collection, and I see it as a provocative counterpoint to the makeup it parties with in the release.
“Intense” barely comes close to describing many of the color products in the collection. This spring at NARS has been a full-on pigment party.
But for nails, the brand decided to go a different, sheerer route.
I like it in the context of the rest of the collection — the contrast between the vibrant, 1,000-watt stereo pigment products, and Disco Inferno’s almost whisper of color.
Sure, if you don’t like sheer nail polishes, this won’t light your fire, but if you do, look out!
Like a real fire, Disco Inferno plays with light. It’s constantly changing colors.
It also reminds me of a mermaids tail…
No, not a tale like, “Once upon a time, a lonely mermaid longed to walk along the shore above her underwater world.”
Nope. Tail, as in T-A-I-L.
Have you ever seen a rainbow trout? How it’s side is almost holographic?
Or pigeon feathers? Wait — that’s kind of gross…
I’ve been wearing Inferno for a few days. From some angles, I see green; from others, grey; and from others still, a dusky purple shines through.
In this swatch I’m wearing three layers, but I also like the way it looks with one, where you can see more of the underlying nail.
Looks pretty darn cool.
After a few days with it on, there are a few chips at the edges…but I did not apply a base or top coat, so there’s that. A base and top coat would surely help.
