NARS Orgasm Nail Polish for back to work nails ;-)

I'm going back to work tomorrow (sigh) and decided to try out the NARS orgasm nail polish. It looks very pretty in the bottle which translates beautifully onto the nails:

Flash shot above. Omg this polish is gorgeous! I used three coats and you can see it's still a bit sheer but that gorgeous peachy shimmer is just stunning. I don't know whether or not this lives up to the blush version but this colour is still something special. Natural (fading) light show below:

I don't believe this polish is available (easily) in Australia - while Mecca stocks NARS, they don't offer the nail polishes which quite frankly sucks. I picked mine up at Sephora last year, along with one of their spring polishes.

The NARS nail polish comes in a square bottle with 15mL or 0.5Fl Oz which is pretty much standard (same as OPI, Sephora by OPI, Essie, Illamasqua...) so more than MAC (10mL) and Chanel (13mL) but less than Orly (18mL). It retails for $16USD so quite a hefty price tag for USD but hey, if it was in Australia we'd probably be paying something like Chanel prices :-/ So while the dollar is close to parity, buy online and be happy :-D

On a side note, I'm really longing for kittens. I'm not allowed kittens yet but when the time is right, I'm getting two ragdolls pretties, much like these:

Aren't they just adorable.


  1. That color is so gorgeous on you! It was made for you! Love your kittehs they are just so cute!

  2. Thanks! The bf loved it too, he couldn't believe it was just one nail polish :-)

  3. I love your blog. I visit it everyday. This new colour is gorgeous, it suits you well, but I am too light-skinned to rock such a colour I think !
    THe kitties are beautiful. Hope you'll be able to have cats soon, they are such wonderful companions :)

  4. Aww thank you Cyrielle! It's nice to know someone is enjoying the blog. I've found these colours are lovely on the eyes and nails but on the lips is a big no no for me! I can't wait for kitties :-)
