Thakoon For NARS Summer 2012


 Thakoon Panichgul is a Thai American Fashion Designer. I have glanced at a few of his pieces at Neiman Marcus but I'm not really familiar with his work in the fashion world... 
All I know is that this nail polish collaboration with NARS Cosmetics for summer 2012 is BRILLIANT!

There are 6 limited edition nail colors in this collection, the inspiration is from colors found in an Indian Spice Market and all the shades are of a creamy consistency.




Ratin Jot is described as an orchid purple, quite similar to OPI Ate Berries In The Canaries.





Anardana is a medium deep fuchsia  red, a very intense color that I love.





Koliary is a cyan blue, it dosent really come off cyan on my nails... it's more like a turquoise blue on me.
This is not a color that I usually go for but of all the 3 that I picked, Koliary is my favorite! I've been staring at it since I applied it, it's such a beauty.




... Koliary goes really well with Revlon's nail polish in Radiant



In case you didn't know, I really do favor NARS nail polishes but I've never been soo excited about a nail polish collection, I think the colors are amazing and worth checking out.
The formular is really creamy and smooth and so far (day 2) I haven't experienced any chipping which kind of has been the norm in nail polishes for me.

This is limited edition and I'm sure they will sell out quick.

They retail for $18 on May 1st on narscosmetics.com.
