NARS Night Porter Nail Lacquer

NARS Night Porter Nail Lacquer ($17.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “black with green pearls.” The base is definitely very dark, more like deep, dark forest green, but there is a lot of emerald green, olive green, and copper-gold shimmer, so it ends up looking like a very dark, sleek forest green with multi-colored shimmer. China Glaze Glittering Garland is more of an emerald green with more yellow undertones. Zoya Edyta is similar but has more of a metallic finish. Nubar Verde is similar but, again, has a metallic finish, which gives it a much more reflective sheen. The shimmer in the previously two mentioned shades is larger, not as fine as in Night Porter.

Like the other shades in the series, Night Porter is richly pigmented–almost opaque in one coat–and needs two coats for full color coverage.  It does dry down to a semi-matte finish, so I’ would recommend using a shiny top coat to achieve that glossy finish.  NARS’ polishes typically wear a week on me with minor tip wear and no chipping.  I was so impressed with how fluidly Night Porter applied; the polish glided across the nail surface and gave great, even coverage.

I was so impressed with how fluidly Night Porter applied; the polish glided across the nail surface and gave great, even coverage. The color is beautiful, and there's this cool-warm vibe to it, so I think it would look good on both warm and cool complexions.
