NARS Vintage Nail Polish Collection

NARS Vintage Nail Polish Collection

NARS introduces a Vintage Nail Polish Collection including five shades, resurrected by popular demand, with NARS’ signature longwearing formula, imparting an initial high gloss lustre that is water and detergent resistant. Perfect for fall, the seasonal height of the fashion year, these vintage polishes are being brought out from the archives to NARS counters for a limited time. With classic cinema as their common theme, below are the shades, their descriptions and the movies that inspired them.

I love the colour palette in this collection and the vintage movie concept is intriguing.

  • Mash – Army green infused with gold
  • King Kong – Copper brown infused with gold
  • Midnight Express – Deep navy
  • Zulu – Forest Green
  • Full Metal Jacket – Gunmetal Gray

I’ve seen most of the movies referenced with my favourite being Full Metal Jacket.  Stanley Kubrick is my absolute favourite director.  I wonder how many of the younger set will even understand the movie references.  The nail polishes will be available on October 1st at Holt Renfrew for $21 each.

  1. Perfect! I’m in the middle of checking out some new colours. I was leaning towards more of a purple next, but after seeing that gunmetal grey, I’m considering switching gears.

    Oddly enough, I saw this movie for the first time on the weekend. Incredible.
