NARS Fall 2012: Storm Bird Nail Lacquer

NARS Storm Bird Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “moody gray.” It’s a medium-dark blue-toned gray with a cream finish. Deborah Lippmann Stormy Weather is darker, less blue-tinted. Zoya Kelly is a smidgen darker, almost purple-tinged.  I think this shade is named perfectly; it’s such a stormy kind of color.  What makes it stand out is that it isn’t super dark, like a lot of grays can be.

It was completely opaque after applying two coats.  The consistency had a nice balance; it wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it applied fluidly without bubbling or pooling along the sides.  I think NARS has become one of the more consistent high-end producers of polishes–and I love that they still give you a full 0.50 fl oz. This is pretty much the typical nail polish size, but some high-end brands have cut the size down to 0.30 to 0.40 fl. oz.  The handle isn’t as comfortable or as natural to hold, because it’s rather wide and square.  I have larger hands/longer fingers, but it doesn’t feel right to hold.
