NARS Koliary Nail Lacquer

NARS Koliary Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “cyan blue.” It’s a rich, light-medium blue–it’s almost cyan, though I’d say it’s a touch less intense. It doesn’t have the same brightness that traditional cyan has. Zoya Phoebe is darker and dries matte. Zoya Robyn is a smidgen lighter.

Koliary is opaque in two coats, and the formula is a dream to work with: not too thick or too thin, so it applies fluidly, evenly, and easily across the nail without pooling along the sides or bubbling. There wasn’t even streaking on the first coat, which made the resulting finish flawless. NARS did a tremendous job with their Thakoon nail collaboration; some really top notch shades with excellent formulas. I typically get a week of wear with NARS formula without chipping and just minor tip wear.

    Christine, I would love if you wanted to answer my question!
    Your nails always look so smooth and nice, my polish always bubbles.
    I have tried shaking, rolling, thin layers, letting it dry and all.
    Can you tell me exactly how you paint your nails and how long you let them dry?
    If I paint too thin layers it won’t be smooth because it won’t be enough to cover the whole nail because I try to make it thin.
    Please answer :) I would love you!
