The Big O
By Melanie Parker
As recently reported here, Nars recently released a Double Orgasm set featuring a Nars Orgasm lip gloss and nail polish set. The Orgasm blush has become a cult classic in the beauty industry, and the company is riding its wave right on to your nails.
The Nars Orgasm nail polish glides over the nail in a peach wash with a captivating gold shimmer. Much like the Orgasm blush, this polish can go into orange territory quickly depending on your skin tone. On me, it looks more peach than orange. On some others, it may even go salmon and look a little pink. The gold shimmer is subtle and elegant.
There is an NYC Glossies #229 polish, which is similar to Nars Orgasm at a fraction of the price at a drug store near you. But other than NYC, I don't think another manufacturer has this color. It is sure to be a hit for tips and toes this summer. I already feel like I have a bit of a tan wearing it today!
I've tried to capture the color in various natural lighting conditions (no flash).
The Nars Double Orgasm set is available for $30 at sephora.com.
