NARS Andy Warhol Collection Nail Polishes for Holiday 2012 Preview

This landed in my inbox recently, and I wanted to pass it along to you guys. NARS is paying homage to Andy Warhol with their holiday collection for 2012. It is quite a large collection, and I am sharing with you the nail polish portion of the collection below. (All info and images are courtesy of NARS.)


Andy Warhol’s world has been inspiring François Nars for years. Now NARS introduces a limited edition collection in the spirit of Andy Warhol. From the formulas and shades to the packaging and names, every element of the collection evokes François Nars’ take on the cool, image-rich, character-laden world of Warhol.

Everybody is a Superstar. At least for 15 minutes.


NARS Andy Warhol Color Collection Nail Polish

BACK ROOM Black
NEW YORK DOLLS Purple
SUPERSTAR Teal
15 MINUTES Lemon Yellow
TV PARTY Vivid orange

Retail: $18. Available October 1 at Sephora and sephora.com


BEAUTIFUL DARLING GIFT SET


Candy was the ultimate blonde bombshell. She was Andy’s greatest actress, even though she was a man. She said “You must always be yourself no matter what the price. It is the highest form of morality.” She thought beauty was a duty and worked harder at it than anyone.

Accompanied by a silver deluxe cosmetics bag, the gift set includes:
CANDY DARLING NAIL POLISH Electric Pink
FEMME FATALE DUO EYESHADOW Sheer white shimmer and fresh mint green
WOMAN IN REVOLT LARGER THAN LIFE LIP GLOSS Hot pink

Retail: $49. Available November 1 at narscosmetics.com


PHOTO BOOTH GIFT SET


Andy believed in a trademark look. His silver hair made him look ironically young. His shades added mystery. He looked like he had a secret, even if he didn’t. He was shy of strangers but he liked being famous. He said it gave him an aura.

The gift set includes:
SILVER FACTORY Aluminum
CHELSEA GIRLS Innocent, flesh-toned beige
SOUP CAN Perfect red
BACK ROOM Black

Retail: $35. Available November 1 at narscosmetics.com


WALK ON THE WILD SIDE GIFT SET


In 1964 Andy painted flowers because he wanted to make something pretty. Decades later they still look fresh, popping out of any background like a pretty face.

The gift set includes:
SILVER FACTORY ILLUMINATOR Aluminum
IT NAIL POLISH Black violet
ORGASM LARGER THAN LIFE LIP GLOSS Peachy pink with golden shimmer

Retail: $39. Available October 1 at Sephora and sephora.com


What do you guys think of this collection? Will you be picking any of the items up? For me, I am looking forward to Superstar, TV Party, and Soup Can, though I will probably wait until I see swatches before I make my final decision. :-)

  1. I'll give all these a miss. Not because there aren't pretties amongst them, but because none of them are talking to me. I'm not that much into cremes - I usually cover the cremes that I have up with glitter. And Nars is a little bit too expensive to just cover up, in my opinion. :)

  4. i'm so looking forward to this collection!
    i just need to remind myself to get the things i'll actually use rather than just because of the name of the item &/or merely for collections sake.

    1. Haha that's totally me too, but I'm also trying to be better. Sometimes I still get sucked into getting colors I won't wear, simply because the bottle is cute, or the color is pretty in the bottle, or it's a cute collection. :P
