Tokaido Express – NARS’ new Fall 2009 nail color

When I think of NARS, I don’t think nail polish.  I think Orgasm – the blush and lip gloss color, that is! But the company does have a collection of nail polishes (also in Orgasm!), and this fall they’ve added Tokaido Express to the list.

Tokaido Express is described on the NARS web site as “Black amethyst infused with gold.” Perhaps it’s the lighting of my house and the cloudy day outside during which I chose to do my swatch, but it seems to have some brown to it. Either way, it’s gorgeous. It’s definitely one of this fall’s vampy shades!

Isn’t it nice?! I think it sparkles a bit more in person.

I liked the brush and the application, the color went on nicely in two coats. I also like the square bottle top, it’s a change from the long tubes of other bottle tops.

I also couldn’t resist posting a picture of my freebie from Urban Decay, because it came in the mail yesterday! I voted in their quest to find the next two men to appear on top of their Pocket Rocket Lip Glosses, and my name was drawn as the winner of a free Pocket Rocket in the color of my choice!!! I chose Doug since I’d gotten a sample of it before and loved the color. The nail polish I’m wearing is Zara by Zoya (yes, the color is really that gorgeous in person!):
