Today’s review is all about NARS Nail Polish in the shade Manosque. It is my first nail polish from NARS and having used a few nail polishes from Deborah Lippmann, Chanel, Smith and Cult, I had high hopes for this one too. So, let’s see how this one fared for me.
Knockout color. Genius formula. Introducing the new NARS Nail Polish, formulated for nothing less than pure color perfection. Wildly chic, this brilliantly curated palette of extended wear enamels features a flexible, high gloss finish for a freshly-painted look that lasts.
My Experience with NARS Nail Polish – Manosque:
The NARS nail polish comes packaged in a square shaped glass bottle with a decorative cap. The outer packaging is a cardboard box which bears all the product related information. Overall, the packaging feels luxurious. However, you need a bit of practice to use the brush because it’s thick and flat.
The shade “Manosque” is a dusty, lavender color which has a creamy and glossy formula. I got this nail polish as it’s a neutral shade and it looks good for any occasion. So, I usually file my nails, push and neaten the cuticles, clean the nail bed with a nail polish remover and then, apply a base coat. Once the basecoat dries, I apply a single coat of this nail polish which takes about 3-5 minutes to dry and then, I apply a second coat. However, the second coat takes a little bit time to dry when compared to my regular Essie or OPI nail polishes, but the result is extremely glossy and there isn’t any need for a top coat.
The nail polish doesn’t stain the nails. Also, my nails remain chip-free for more than a week. The brush is a bit weird to use as it overloads the product over the cuticles even when I apply it with extreme care, so this is a big disappointment for me. Overall, I am glad about the quality and wear time of this nail polish. On my nails, it looks more of grey, but yes, it does have a hint of lavender and is certainly a stunning shade.
Pros of NARS Nail Polish – Manosque:
- Beautiful, dusky lavender shade.

- Nails stay chip-free for more than a week.
Cons of NARS Nail Polish – Manosque:
