If I ever procure my dream shoe closet (one so vast that you can’t see how far back it goes, and the walls are lined with shelf upon shelf of heels from floor to ceiling), it’ll have one entire row dedicated to the six new Pierre Hardy for NARS Nail Duos.
A collaboration with famed French footwear and accessories designer Pierre Hardy, the new limited edition summer line, inspired by high heels, pits six pairs of polishes together like shoes.
Note: you do not have to wear heels to strut your stuff in these six $29 duos (but you might want to anyway). Your toes would look just as cute if you wore them in flip-flips.
I’ve never put on a pair of Pierre Hardy shoes, but based on the nail polishes and blushes in his collection with NARS, I want to.
Apparently, homeboy likes pigment! — because NARS pumped a ton of it into these polishes, and with the exception of the light yellow shade, Sharks Left, they deliver pretty good coverage from one or two layers.
To keep the fairly thick formula, which dries to high gloss finish in less than 10 minutes, from getting gooey on my nails, I empty as much as I can first from the brush before applying.
Since I usually like to wear something different on my fingers and toes, I like this idea. You get a polish for your fingers and a polish for your toes, and the duos are also a pretty good deal, considering that NARS normally sells similar full-size 0.5-ounce bottles for $19 each (these are $29 per pair).
I can’t see myself ever getting tired of the Sharplines, Venemous (is that a typo?) and Ethno Run duos. The way the lighter colors contrast with the darker shades? I love that. The pairings could also make for some interesting nail art.
PRICE: $29 per duo, each with two full-sized 0.5-ounce bottles
AVAILABILITY: Available now online and at NARS counters

Wow, did you see that!? That was the day. It just flew by…
What are ya up to tonight? I’m just taking it easy here, having a salad for dinner, finishing the last half of Defiance and then The Mindy Project after that.
It’s a TV night.
