NARS Galathee Nail Polish
NARS Galathee Nail Polish

NARS Galathee Nail Polish ($19.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “dove grey.” Dove grey is the perfect descriptor for this color; it’s a light-medium gray with nearly neutral undertones that lead only slightly blue. The consistency was slightly thick, and this is a polish that would be best applied with two thin coats and a third slightly thicker coat. It was just slightly streaky, and I was only able to see the slight streakiness at a couple of angles but it often looked just fine (you can even see the same is true in the photos). Two coats was mostly opaque with a hint of visible nail line coming through when in a well-lit area. Illamasqua Raindrops is similar in color but has flecks of sparkle. Illamasqua DWS is several shades darker. Rescue Beauty Lounge Stormy is even darker than DWS. See comparison swatches.

Fury Nail Polish ($19.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “regal purple.” It’s a rich, deep purple with slightly cool undertones and a cream finish. I applied just one coat of the polish on my pinky nail so you could see just how nice the pigmentation was, but I did two coats on the others for full color coverage. It had a nice shiny dry down, and the consistency of the polish was slightly thin but very rich in pigment and easy to maneuver on the nail. Dior Shadow is warmer, darker. Cult Nails Spontaneous is warmer, shimmery, lighter. Zoya Suri is much cooler-toned, lighter. See comparison swatches.

NARS’ polish formula wears exceptionally well on me lasting a full week with very minor tip wear and no chipping.  Most formulas do not chip on me, but this formula does wear slightly better and longer than most on me.  I wish Galathee applied better overall, but it is manageable and for some, for the color, worth the extra effort and patience.

Fury was a dream to apply! It was rich in color and applied evenly and fluidly without bubbling or streaking.

  1. Love both, but the grey looks a little more unique. Still, typical of nars nails enamels, the shine is really gorgeous on the purple.

  2. Pretty colors, but at that price that grey shade could be a straight A ^^

  3. Oooh the first one is just gorgeous. A bit like one of those new YSL colors but I prefer this one

  4. Fury is stunning. I love my purples.

    I need Galathee in my life. I love greys, they’re my favorite neutral.

  6. I love Fury – it has me ready for autumn!

  7. these are beautiful colors <3

  8. Neither of the colours appeals to me much but the finish and “liquid-ness” of Fury is gorgeous. If it were a deep red, burgundy or berry shade, I’d be out the door to buy it!

  9. I own Nars Orgasm Nail Polish, but it stains my nails horribly! I’ve tried with several different base coats, even double layering my base coat, but this polish is awful and ALWAYS leaves bright yellow stains behind. It seriously looks as if I stained my nails with a yellow fluorescent marker. I’ve never had this problem with any other nail polish brand. I am now afraid of trying other Nars nail polishes. Has anybody else had this problem with Nars polishes or Nars Orgasm polish? Or is it just me?
