NARS – Rouge Andalou
Today I’ve got my very first NARS polish to show you all, Rouge Andalou. While I’m not normally a red polish fan, this one is sending me over the moon with how absolutely gorgeous it is! There’s something that is just so sultry and flirtatious about this color, I can’t put my finger on it. I will however cover my nails with it and love every minute. 😉
I used Essie Fill The Gap and Seche Vite as my base and top coats for all swatches.
Rouge Andalou is a vibrant shimmering candy apply red with golden undertones. I really love the way this color just pops! It is SO incredibly pigmented. I honestly could have done one coat and been fine, the coverage was that great. I ended up doing two coats to see if the color intensified. Honestly though, one coat is just as bright and pigmented as two with this lovely lacquer. 😀
You can see the golden undertone come out a bit in this picture. With this angle and under certain lighting the polish takes on a more red-orange color. But 90% of the time you’re going to see the color displayed in the previous photo.
And here’s a close-up of the beautiful finish. The formula on Rouge Andalou was simply amazing. The brush was soft and pliable, and picked up just the right amount of polish every time. I thought the attached square top and short stem on would be a hindrance but I was gladly mistaken.
Rouge Andalou has made me toss my “Reds Look Bad On Me” mentality right out the window! This polish has Rie written all over it. I am very happy that I stepped out of my comfort zone with this color, and if the rest of the NARS nail polishes have a formula as great as this then I am all about NARS. 😀
