NARS Back Room Nail Lacquer
There’s One Last Polish in the Back Room!
NARS Back Room Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “black.” It’s a rich, deep dark black with a glossy finish. I know it’s going to sound bizarre, but I don’t have a lot of black cream polishes. MAC Nocturnelle is one of the few I have (and for some reason, I have a few of them). It’s not quite as dark and doesn’t dry down to the same naturally glossy finish. MAC Beyond Jealous is a tiny bit teal but mostly black. What’s your favorite black cream?
I love this polish. You have to wait for it to dry to understand what makes this polish sing, and it actually dries down quickly, and when it does, there’s a beautiful glossy shine. It’s not necessary to apply a top coat if you’re looking to add shine. The formula was just the right consistency, not being thin or watery, but not too thick either. It was a cinch to apply the polish, as the fluid flowed across the nail evenly and smoothly. It was almost opaque in one coat, but I did need two for fully opaque color. NARS’ polish wears exceptionally well on me, lasting as long as ten days without chipping and only showing minor tip wear.
