NARS Night Flight Nail Lacquer

NARS Night Flight Nail Lacquer

NARS Night Flight Nail Lacquer ($17.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “black with cobalt blue pearls.” It’s a new and limited edition shade from the Night Series. The coverage is fantastic–I used two coats, but it was 80% opaque with one coat. The formula is that perfect blend of thick and thin that allows for even flow across the nail bed without causing drag or patchiness. It’s a blackened-navy blue base with silver and navy blue shimmer. It is similar to MAC Biker Blue, though NARS’ formula is better (more opaque) and has a more muted appearance.

If you like a shiny finish to your polishes, you’ll definitely want to use a top coat here, because these dry to a remarkably low-shine finish. NARS’ polishes wear well on me, and I have no issues with chipping over a week–just minor tip wear, which is expected given I type all day (and I have absolutely no regard for my nails; I’ll happily pry something open with them).

Night Flight

The formula was flawless--so easy to apply, rich in color, and doesn't bubble or streak. It's such a dark shade that it should work on both cool and warm skin tones.

    Amazing colour ♥ !

    Pretty. I’ve tried swatching it on my nails in Nordstrom and I love it, but I’m not sure if I can justify spending $17 for a bottle pf polish… :/

  3. Melody

    What a gorgeous polish! It does look somewhat muted and I think that makes it classier than Biker Blue. And I totally just noticed that NARS polishes are $17 to MAC’s $15. What are you thinking, MAC?

  4. I would buy this if I didn’t already own so many blues. The blue shimmer is stunning!

  5. I feel like this is a color I probably have a dupe for in my stash.

  6. Kaitlin

    NEED IT!

  7. Joelle

    I love every piece of NARS night collection. This shade is no exception. Magnificent!

  8. I’m not so much into blue nail paints but this is such an interesting shade!

  9. Luka

    Also reminds me of China Glaze blk-bila-bong

  10. Nikita

    This color makes me think of Revlon’s Midnight Affair, but I think this one has a bit more greenish feel to it. It’s still quite lovely!

  11. Musebeliever

    Amazing !
    Definitely getting this one !

  12. meme

    like it – but will leave it – I have others that look like this including one I mixed up myself.

  13. Noir

    The color is amazing but it’s exactly the same as Chanel’s Blue Satin.

  14. Dormouse

    I have this & love it.

  15. Just a heads up–you can get *some* of these at–sign up for their newsletter, always have a good “with purchase” gift plus samples! And while the price is about the same, sometimes there are good dollar off coupons floating around.

    I got my very first NARS polishes today–in Night Porter (in this collection) and Orgasm (yes I had to finally get this *giggle*) I *love* the texture of the cap, reminds me of orly and Zoya mattes.

    Your nails always look flawless!

    I’m sure you’ve been asked, so can anyone tell me why she doesn’t paint all the way to the cuticle or on the sides of the nail? is it because they are just swatches and otherwise it might stain or be damaging to remove?

  17. Christine O

    If it is possible to lust after a polish then I am lusting……….. Must have it!

  18. Michelle

    This is stunning! However, I always gravitate to colors like this, which means I probably have 5 nearly identical colors in my collection…

  19. R

    OMG this is sooooo pretty! I am in love with the swatches :0 Why oh why does it have to be $17??!?!?!?
