In honor of NARS’ 15th anniversary, François Nars, Founder and Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics, has resurrected some of the brand’s long-lost nail polishes ($16 each), from the NARS archives. The five shades will be available for a limited time beginning this month —

  • Blue Lagoon (Originally launched in 2001) –  iridescent powder blue
  • Cha Cha Cha (Originally launched in 2001) – semi-sheer tangerine with gold reflections
  • Hunger (Originally launched in 2001) – hot orange red
  • Tallulah (Originally launched in 1998) – rich grape
  • Zizi (Originally launched in 1999) – clear with peach and gold glitter

The last thing I need is another bottle of polish, but I was too tempted to resist and ordered Hunger the other day. I love that there’s a hint of orange in the deep red which makes it nice for summer. They’ve also come-out with a summer shade called Adelita (pearlescent pink), that I’m finding to be a nice alternative to my deep reds and bright neon pinks/purples.

NARS Tropic Single Eyeshadow– $22

NARS has said that he is always inspired by the tropics and this teal shade is a nice reflection of that. I’m usually not a fan of glitter, but NARS does a great job at matching it with appropriate colors. Perennial favorites of mine are NARS Night Clubbing and Gold Finger, Tropic now rounds out the group! Though I do wish the shadows came with a brush…

NARS Scorching Sun Duo Eyeshadow

The glazed apricot and radiant orange duo, is designed “to imitate the effect of the burning sun,” according to Nars. The pair can be blended together to form a rich, burnt orange, or worn in tandem.
