NARS Night Breed Nail Lacquer

NARS Night Breed Nail Lacquer ($17.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described simply as “black with silver glitter.” It’s a deep black with silver shimmer and sparkle that’s opaque in two coats (but one coat packs quite a punch of pigmentation). I don’t have anything quite like this. I think the closest shade I could think of was China Glaze Tinsel Town, but it has a lot more silver glitter and shimmer, so it looks more silver than it does black. China Glaze Stone Cold has more uniform and smaller-sized shimmer, plus it has a matte finish.

NARS nailed the formula of their Night Series shades–the color coverage is fantastic, the shades are nuanced, and they even dry faster than most polishes. It does dry down to a flatter finish, so a shiny top coat is a must if you prefer a glossy finish. The wear of NARS polishes is remarkably good–minor tip wear and no chipping after seven days.  The application was easy and required no special effort; Night Breed had a good consistency–not too thick or too thin–that yielded even color without streaking.

Night Breed

A+
Night Breed is a high-end polish that's worth it--the formula is flawless: rich in color, easy application, and long-wear. I also love that they didn't skimp on the quantity, because you're getting as much polish as the average polish has (0.50 fl. oz.). Too many high-end brands squeeze on both price and quantity!
