NARS Nail Polish
Iconic Colour. Nailed.


Words & Images by Kate Wotherspoon

I’ve always been a fan of NARS. I think it all started when my sister brought home a beautiful shimmering pink blush called Orgasm. Maybe it was the blunt title of the blush that made me look into the brand further… I mean, no one else was naming their product with such a sexy innuendo… Then I looked further into their collection of lipsticks, eye shadows and nail polish and soon found my makeup drawer housing names like Deep Throat, Super Orgasm and Rated R… Don’t worry, I wasn’t 14 at the time or anything….

“When I created NARS, I was either going to name them with numbers or give them intelligent names. I wanted to give the products a character and an identity. The names make you dream and transport you to another place. It gives the colours a fun twist.” – François Nars
