There’s something sketchy about the new NARS Galion Nail Polish ($17), and by that I mean that it reminds me of the graphite pencils I used to draw with in art class.
Two coats of this creamy dark gray, the sole polish in the upcoming nine-piece fall collection from NARS, deliver fully opaque nail color with a high-shine finish.
I totally the color, but it’s like a really dark paint job on a car — shows every little scratch. I neglected to add a sturdy base and topcoat this time, and after barely a day with it on, I can already spot a few chips at the tips of my nails.
AVAILABILITY: Coming soon to NARS counters and online July 15
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+
