NARS - Anardana

NARS Ratin Jot was my first ever NARS purchase, and I hadn't been planning to pick up another so soon... but then I saw Anardana, an extremely rich and vibrant fuchsia pink. Anardana is another colour from the same collection as Ratin Jot (Thakoon for NARS collection), and I couldn't pass it up- this set was limited edition, so I didn't know how long it would be around. 


This was so bright it kind of freaked my camera out. The formula was perfection, and I barely needed two coats. The polish was easy to control, and levelled out perfectly.


In case you were wondering what exactly "Anardana" is (I know I was), it's actually a kind of spice made from dried pomegranate seeds.  The word is from the Persian language, and the spice is commonly used in India and Pakistan. Although I didn't recognize the name, I've actually tried it before in an Iranian friend's cooking (mixed with saffron and rice). It's quite tart in flavour, and slightly fruity. 


What do you think of NARS Anardana?

  1. LOL Ratin Jot was my first Nars too, and so far the only one - I can see why you fell for this beauty though :)

    1. I think Ratin Jot is still my favourite, but this one is equally gorgeous in many ways!

  2. Really love the rich creamy colour. I feel that it is quite a unique fuchsia too, there is nothing out there that quite encapsulates that shade.

    1. It absolutely is a perfect lacquer- I have not a single complaint. Well, maybe the price tag... :P

    2. I believe I have actually! Here's the link: http://sandipalien.blogspot.com/2012/05/deborah-lippmann-daytripper.html And I've used it in a few nail art designs...which I have yet to post. I am so behind in the blogging world!

    3. Ahh, right, I remember it now. It looks like Anardana is quite a bit more pink though, not so much peachy. And I'm totally behind on posting my manicures, too, so don't feel bad!
