NOTD: NARS Mash

Thursday, 28 October 2010

I was obsessed with this shade from the first moment I saw it, a glorious golden-khaki, it's slightly different (metallic greens are my current nail varnish obsession) and I had to have it:





I love it. The above pic shows two coats over a sticky basecoat and topped with Seche Vite. First coat goes on quite sheer, but the second finishes it off nicely.

It's oddly work-appropriate, and very pretty, it flashes bronze and copper sparkle when you move your fingers around.

However this is a *chiptacular* polish! I've worn it several times now, and each time I've had to remove it within 48 hours (once within 12!) thanks to chipping. Still wear it though because I love the colour so much, but I'm not entirely sure I'll be buying any more polishes from NARS in the future, to be honest.

MASH is part of the NARS vintage collection which is available from Selfridges and SpaceNK, cost £13.50.

  3. I nearly bought this but plumped for Zulu instead - have similar problems, but love the colour so much. Think I may just have to get this one too, I love a good murky green gold. Thanks for this. Jan x

  5. That is such a gorgeous colour. I wasn't sure if it would suit lighter skin tones but it really does. It's a shame about the chipping. It would work one of two ways with me, it would either be the same as everything and chip on me within 12 hours or it would be even worse and off within the space of an evening. The spending ban is going to stop me finding out though!

  8. I love greens, but I never know what kind of clothes to wear when I have that polish on. That stinks about the chipping, but it's definitely a really pretty color.
