NARS Other Side is a moderately warm-toned, very dark brown with a cream finish. It is a limited edition nail lacquer that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.5 oz.
NARS Other Side Nail Polish ($20.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a "bitter chocolate." It's a blackened brown with subtle maroon undertones and a cream finish. It was fully opaque in almost one coat, though two were needed for complete opacity. The polish wasn't too thick or too thin, and it was easy to apply--no streakiness or bubbling. Essie Shearling Darling (P, $8.00) is lighter. Cult Nails Lamestain (P, $12.00) is darker. MAC Blueblood (LE, $16.00) is similar. Chanel Accessoire (P, $27.00) is lighter. Rescue Beauty Lounge Drifter (LE, $20.00) is cooler-toned. Color Club Fashion Moment (P) is cooler-toned. China Glaze Velvet Bow (LE, $7.50) is lighter. Zoya Anja (P, $9.00) is cooler-toned.

Continuing with the same hues that have made NARS Nail Polish a coveted favorite, NARS introduces a new technology to its Nail Polish, specifically designed to help improve the formula's flexibility, durability, wear and gloss properties. NARS reintroduces its Nail Polish with a newly developed polymer system that provides extended wear and a tough, durable, chip-resistant finish. The superior longwearing formula also imparts an initial high-gloss luster with prolonged gloss retention, and is also water and detergent resistant with additional UV protection to prevent polish discoloration.
