Video: Mid-Week in Review – NARS Andy Warhol Collection

Video: Mid-Week in Review, Vol. 003

This is a long one, so grab a snack! :)  The video is really dual-purpose — it’s really a recap of the past four days, but it also is a recap of the NARS and Andy Warhol collaboration (from what we’ve seen so far).  I hope you enjoy!

NARS TV Party Nail Lacquer

NARS TV Party Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “vivid orange.” It’s a medium-dark orange with a cream finish. It’s vibrant without being neon. Nails Inc. Porchester Place is a bit less orange, almost subdued in a way. Illamasqua Gamma is brighter. Zoya Jancyn is lighter. MAC Morange is darker and more red-toned.  It’s bright without being blindingly neon, and it’s not too dark.  It also doesn’t have strong red undertones, so it is a bit different than some other oranges I have in my stash.
