Sneak Peek - 3.1 Phillip Lim for NARS Nail Collection

Summer time doesn't always HAVE to mean either sheer pastels - or bright, juicy nail polish colors either.
Sometimes you might want a moody, rich shade right in the middle of summer.
And Francois Nars is just the man to give it to you with the latest 3.1 Philip Lim for NARS Nail collection.  The two icons, makeup artist Francois Nars and fashion designer Philip Lim, have worked together for over 7 Fashion Week seasons.  The collection is a smart combination of both of their color and beauty philosophies.
The  limited edition nine shade collection is inspired by "colors that exist in the shadows".  They are beautiful jewel tones which span from blues, greens and deep purple shades to several metallic and hybrid colors, along with a few pale shades.
Two standout shades for me are: Insidious (shown, at the top).  This shade is exclusive to NARS Boutiques and, and is a unique black-bronze. Once on my nails,  Insidious was stunning with two coats.  It dried to a rich shiny green/bronze/black hybrid (and also looks almost like a shimmery black in certain light)..  

Crossroads (above, left) is a stunning bold and deep Violet shade (this even works for people like me who don't always gravitate towards purple nail shades).   African Violet has a creamy, glossy finish and is true to the shade in the bottle with two coats.
For summer, I think these shades make bold statements on the toes with a pair of beautiful sandals/killer heels. Come Fall, I'll switch up and use the shades on my nails as well.

If you fall in love with the entire collection, treat yourself and pick up the signature Pochette (above, right) which contains all nine shades! - RLB
