NARS Madness Nail Polish

NARS Madness Nail Polish ($19.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “electric orange.” It’s a brightened, medium orange with a jelly finish–it has a squishy, slightly translucent quality to the way it looks and applies that is very true to the jelly finish. NARS TV Party is darker and a true cream. Illamasqua Gamma is a bit brighter and also a true cream.

It has semi-opaque color payoff after two coats, and the opacity was consistent of what is expected of a jelly finish (and part of what makes a jelly, well, a jelly!). It has a thicker, squishy look that gives it a plushness. Madness actually looks like candy corn on my longer nails, because the white tips turn to a lighter, more tangerine orange, while the rest of the nail is a deeper orange!   The consistency is on the thicker side (but normal for a jelly), and it flowed well across the nail without bubbling, streaking, or pooling along the edges. NARS’ formula wears very well on me, as it is one of the longer-wearing formulas I’ve come across, and I get a full seven days of wear with very minor tip wear but no chipping.
