NARS 15 Minutes Nail Lacquer

A Pop of Spring in Your Holiday Line-Up

NARS 15 Minutes Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “lemon yellow.” It’s a slightly pastel sunshine yellow. MAC Near Beth Experience is much lighter. Rescue Beauty Lounge Yellow Fever is much darker. China Glaze Lemon Fizz is also much lighter. In the end, I couldn’t think of any dupes from previous shades I’ve reviewed.

This reads very springtime to me, though I can see why it’s a hue incorporated into this collection as a result of the collaboration with Andy Warhol.  Of all the five individually releasnig shades, 15 Minutes was the “worst” performing.  It is a bit streaky, and it did have a longer dry down time compared to the other four.  For a yellow, it’s rather good, though.  I think with a couple of practice applications, most of the streakiness can be dealt with. The color is opaque after two coats, though, and the formula doesn’t feel too thick, but it is on the slightly thicker side.  NARS’ polish typically wears well on me with very minor tip wear after seven days–some shades I’ve worn for as long as ten days.

It's a color I couldn't think of a dupe for, so that always counts for something, but the formula isn't perfect. It's particularly good given how difficult it is to find a good pastel yellow polish, though.
