Hawaii, By Way of NARS Shameless Red

Published in: Nails, NARS, Product Reviews

NARS Shameless Red Swatch

Aloha, NARS Shameless Red!

Please give a warm aloha to NARS Shameless Red Nail Polish! — aka, the latest shade to join the ranks of hula dancing beauty products that masquerade as a tropical vacation in a bottle.

Whenever I wear this reddish pink, I feel like I have hibiscus petals affixed to my nails.



Part of the recently revamped 43-piece NARS Nail Polish line, Shameless Red ($20) arrives by catamaran (OK, not really) July 15 at NARS boutiques and narscosmetics.com (and August 1 at Sephora stores and department store NARS counters).

NARS Shameless Red

I’m unashamed about my love for this color… One could say I’m shamelessly in love with it, haha.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Mahalo for stopping by! 🙂 Have a great hump day.

    Love your little hula monkey? Where did you find him before he came to dance with you and your hibiscus nails?

  6. Kim says:

    Definitely a cheerful red! Tom Ford’s Shameless pops up next to it in your “related reading” section. Now THAT is a beauty! Sadly, it makes me think of fall, though. 🙁

  7. Tatiana says:

    Oooh! What a gorgeous color! How well do the new NARS polishes wear?
    Love the hula monkey.
    So many pretty things coming out late summer and early autumn. I need to make a list and prioritize because unfortunately I cannot afford to buy it all.

  13. Love this color, Karen! Like you, I LOVE Hawaii (so much so that my hubby and I got married there last year though we have no family ties to Hawaii…we simply love the place so much!) and consequently adore anything that reminds me of Hawaii. Also loving your cute little monkey :).
