NARS 413 BLKR Nail Polish
NARS 413 BLKR Nail Polish

NARS 413 BLKR Nail Polish ($19.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “midnight blue.” It’s a rich, deep, dark blue with a jelly-cream finish–not quite as squishy and as plush as a true jelly, but it doesn’t have the texture or look of a true cream. MAC Double Trouble is similar. Rescue Beauty Lounge Dead Calm is lighter, cream. China Glaze First Mate is also a cream. See comparison swatches.

The consistency was on the thinner side, almost watery but not quite. Each coat had a tendency to pull a little away from where I originally placed the brush, so I’d recommend starting your coat further away from the cuticle.  The first coat looked streaky after I applied it, but the second coat seemed to hide and correct whatever was wrong with the first coat for the most part.  After two coats, it was mostly opaque but there was a noticeable translucency (which is part of what made me think it was a jelly–but it lacked the thicker, squishy look for one).  I typically get really exceptional wear out of NARS’ formula (seven to ten days with minor tip wear).
