The packaging is inspired by Pierre's Hardy's own shoe boxes - they come in a little white box with the bottles facing in opposite directions (like shoes!), as well as that mini dust bag I mentioned earlier.
Vertebra, one of the Duo's is also in that Coral family like the Boys Don't' Cry blush - and was right up my ally.
The two shades are simply named "left" and "right". The left one is a medium pink/coral cream and the right one a beautiful dusty rose with a fair bit of brown - enough so that it made a very interesting, modern twist on "nude" for my nails/skin tone as it mimicked some of the brownness and undertones in my actual skin.
The textures of both polishes are creamy and medium weight. Two coats gave me a nice opaque, shiny finish with no streaking or patchiness. With top coat these polishes lasted a good 4-5 days before any chipping/wear.
By the way, NARS polishes retail for $19.00, and the set is $29.00, so it's also a fantastic deal and perfect for gift giving - or splitting with a girlfriend! - RLB
