Manicure Monday: Bring Out The Sunshine With Nars x Thakoon
If you are anticipating Summer, the way that I’m anticipating Summer than you undoubtedly can’t wait for Summer to finally arrive. I’ve been trying to usher summer in slowly but surely, by wearing bright colors from my head, down to my toes. This #ManiMonday I revisited a good old throwback from 2012 – the Nars x Thakoon Summer Collection in Amchoor.
Designer Thakoon Panichugal, created this rich, vibrant color inspired by the many colors found in Indian spice markets.
The color itself is thick and after two years, still has really good coverage. With lighter colors, I typically use a white polish as a base coat instead of a clear base coat polish. The white base coat is essential to make any bright polish POP for bright, eye-catching fingertips.
After the white base coat, I applied only one coat of the Nars x Thakoon Amchoor polish and then topped it off with a clear coat to seal in the color.
Unfortunately, the Nars x Thakoon collection was available for a limited time only back in 2012, but you can still find many of the colors featured in the limited collection online and on eBay today.
