NARS Storm Bird nail polish is swooping onto counters this Fall 2012. With a name like Storm Bird, one can imagine the shadowed wingspan of a seabird riding the gusts of a storm. It's really nice imagery for a grey polish.
I'm glad I held out on last year's dark greys and went for NARS Storm Bird nail polish this season. I like how it's close to neutral, and is a mid-tone grey. I prefer this to greys that are too dark or too light. Although NARS Storm Bird seems like a color more suited towards fall, I've already made good use of it this week as a pedi. The slight blue tones look nice when paired with nude sandals and dark skinny jeans. Thanks for reading! Have you picked up anything from NARS Fall 2012? What's your favorite grey polish?
Love the photographs! Very edgy and chic!ReplyDelete
Hi Hebridean Sprite, thank you so much! :)Delete
Love the feathers Dovey!ReplyDelete
I tried this the other day on one nail in the store, and loved it. I didn't get it, but I'm still thinking about it! It really is a perfect grey!
Thank you Tracy! Grey is a fall color and it's still summer. Plenty of time to think on it :)Delete
I like how you make your product images so much more interesting. Favorite is still the zygomatic/cheek bone image. I love the color grey as a neutral for clothes and accessories but I haven't found a shade that would enhance my sallow skintone for nails...kind of like the greiges...seems to only look good for those who are very pale or dark, but not intermediate folks. At least I don't think so.ReplyDelete
Thank you fairytales and coffee! Greys and greiges can be tricky, depending on how much yellow and blue are present. I like this one since it's closer to neutral/blue.Delete
I love your photographs - love feathers! This is a gorgeous gray. I don't think I have anything like it...you have tempted me!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much Larie!Delete
Great pictures as usual, Dovey! I haven't got to see NARS fall in person, but there are some pieces that I'm really interested in. I am a little skeptical about gray nail polishes working on me (I think my undertone is really pretty strongly yellow), but this looks great on you! So sophisticated!ReplyDelete
Thank you sunny! I hope you get to see more; there are definitely greys out there that don't flatter my skin tone. This is my first medium grey purchase :)Delete
Lovely pics Dovey! And this rich shade of grey has me rethinking my "no high-end polishes" rule. It really is a beautiful Fall shade and will go with everything!ReplyDelete
Thank you Becca! I hope it will!Delete
What great pictures Dovey! I have a Zoya nail polish that seems similar (Kelly) and as much as I was scared of grey nails - I love them! not as much as my beloved reds but still, a pretty good option. I yet have to try Nars nail polishes, they have some pretty colour stories.ReplyDelete
Hi Claire, although I don't have it, I remember really liking Zoya Kelly too when it came out!Delete
I love this color nail polish, and it looks great on you :)ReplyDelete
Thank you Sarah!Delete
Fantastic pics Dovey! I have one gray polish - Zoya Freja. It is a medium gray with shimmer. It doesn't lean as blue as Storm Bird. I love a good creme polish! But I know I won't wear gray often enough to warrant a second gray in my collection.ReplyDelete
Hi Kristi, Oooh, I haven't seen Freja yet; it took me a while to get a gray since they are so difficult to pick from!Delete
I do love a good grey nail varnish. Will be getting this along with Vent Glace.ReplyDelete
Hi Mopsy, both sound like great picks. So many people are loving Vent Glace now!Delete
Nice job with the feathers in the background! Your photos are always such good treats. :DReplyDelete
I like this grey and have a lot of grey polishes. They're so dramatic and moody for winter!
Hi Liz, Thank you so much! I did not know you had a number of greys--- now I know what to look forward to on your blog this fallDelete
Love the grey colour!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much Guorun! It's great to hear from you :)Delete
What a beautiful picture! I love the feathers and the greyish blue colors. I can see that you're a big NARS fan :)ReplyDelete
Thank you memoiselle! And that I am.... :)Delete
I've always found NARS polishes to be so disappointing but this looks really nice so as a total NARS addict I may just be tempted!ReplyDelete
Hi MaiBug, I'm always tempted! NARS polishes tend to grow on me over time even if I don't reach for them often at first!Delete
