For Christmas 2013, my friend gifted me couple of beauty products.

I took this picture from my Instagram. I already reviewed Urban Decay Naked3. For this post, I will review the nail polish.
Product Review: NARS in #3608 Disco Inferno

Where to purchase: department stores, Sephora, and online at narscosmetics.com
Price: $20 for 0.5 fl oz/ 15 mL

Made in USA

Description from the pamphlet: A high gloss, long-wearing, chip resistant formula designed to improve flexibility and durability of wear, shake well before using.
Ingredients:
Thoughts: Before I talk more about the nail polish, I believe this is a discontinued color but I'm not 100% sure. I can't find it on both Sephora and Nars website.
Here's a closer look at the color and it's true to color from the bottle. It's not true to color on the nails!
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compared to my perfect brush, OPI, it's thinner and shorter. I consider the width to be very thin. The length is shorter but it didn't bother me.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original, Formula X For Sephora Base Coat, 2 coats of Nars in Disco Inferno, and topped it off with Butter London Hardwear P.D. Quick Topcoat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, like I said the brush is thin. I found it that I needed to apply a lot of strokes to get color on my nails. On the other hand, the consistency of the polish is thin. I would say it's in-between thin to medium. For that reason, it was easy to apply the polish on my nails. I grabbed a big scoop of polish on the thin brush and brush my nails. It spread easily. With that said, there was no streaking and bubbles. It left a nice, smooth texture. Secondly, I was shocked by the color. I was expecting metallic, greenish brown. That's what I noticed from the bottle. It was more metallic, purplish silver. In my opinion, the color is perfect for the winter weather. It's also duo-chrome. Lastly, I'm on my 6th day wearing the polish. I didn't notice any chips but I did notice slight shrinkage. Since it's so metallic and silvery, you won't notice the shrinkage unless you're examining the color. Let's just say I'm impressed with longevity!

Pros:
* Duo-chrome.
* In-between thin to medium consistency.
* Easy to apply.
* Spreads easily.
* No bubbles.
* No streaking.
* Gorgeous winter color.
* On the 6th day and there's no chipping.
* Slight shrinkage but not noticeable.

Cons:
* Can be costly.
* Matte, velvet top; can get sticky after awhile.
* Thin brush.

Would repurchase: Yes.
