NARS the stuff that seperates the women from the girls....

NARS "Zulu" arrived and I made a bee line to Nordstroms, I even called ahead to make sure they had he collection..

I arrived and the sales woman said "I hope you didnt want Full Metal Jacket?"..I said "Oh no, I want "Zulu" and "Midnight Express"...why? is Full Metal Jacket sold out?". Come to find out it was sold out. I picked up the sample bottle and thought why? Its just a silver. I figured, I'd delve into this later and grabbed my two bottles of luxurious jelly polish and hit the road.

Why is "Full Metal Jacket" sold out? I mean really?... it's just another silver, platinum polish..no biggie. The real big deal is "Zulu" and "Midnight Express" in my opinion.

Then I realized... "Zulu" and "Midnight Express" can only be loved, appreciated and adored by a "Nail Head", someone who understands what a jelly polish IS and how great these two shades are.

So here ya go..

"Zulu"
3 coats with a top coat of Seche Vite.














I wore this for 4 days and it was AWESOME!














Then I couldnt wait to swatch "Midnight Express"
"Midnight Express"
3 coats














Then I realized 4 was needed, I still had some bald spots...see them?

I could have done this in 3 coats, if I wasn't in such a rush.














This is 4 coats....I'm in love!














Gorgeous!!!  So now I realize why "Full Metal Jacket" was gone...see jelly's take patience and lots-o-love, only something a "nail head" could attempt to deliver and appreciate.















So all the other polish shoppers can take the easy road...I'll take the the hard and difficult road that leads to GREAT looking nails...thank you very much :) LMAO

These are both GORGEOUS! I think it's really interesting how different polishes are popular among nail bloggers and "regular" people.

I love your swatch of Midnight Express! I thought I could skip it, but you make it look so pretty!! Totally agree with your observation on polish preferences.

I was lucky enough to grab the last bottle of Mash from my Nordstroms. I was actually surprised that it was the color that sold out first. I hesitated to pick up ME (since I also bought King Kong & Purple Rain) and now your swatch has me filled with regret. It is lovely on you!

@Terni- If I were to go back and grab another, it would definitely be MASH, it is unique and gorgeous!

I always shiver - in a good way - when I see photos of these two. So gorgeous and I'm very glad Nars brought them back. Mash is pretty nice too!

Let them have Polish! said...

OMG that blue.. I would totally take on that blue if it mean I got to stare at it.. So stunning!

ChaosButterfly said...

lol, it's a little ironic though because I think Full Metal Jacket is the hardest to apply perfectly. At least with jellies, if you just keep on putting on the coats, it'll look perfect eventually. With FMJ, it'd only look worse and worse.
It's sad too, because if I could go back for more, Full Metal Jacket would be my pick. I love the name too.
