NARS Andy Warhol Photo Booth nail polish set Swatch

My 2nd order on the Andy Warhol collection.
They are all in mini size, but Black room is also available in original size for a limited time.

-Black Room (Black): I think the formula is pretty thin, that you need at least 2 coats to get a clean matte black.
-Chelsea Girls(Modern Beige): I like nude polishes so I had a pretty high expectation on this. Color was ok, but it was a bit thicker than I expected.
-Soup Can (Vivid Red): I guess the name soup can for this nail color was derived from Campbell's tomato soup :) Formula is light (not thin)
-Silver Factory(Aluminium) : Isn't this a dupe of Space Odyssey from last year's holiday collection?

My first Nars nail polish was "Bad Influence" which gave me a "Good Influence".
I got it when it was sale on Sephora last year (only $8~!!), and had a pretty good impressions on Nars nail polishes- It is very easy to apply with great formula, dries quickly.... but the polishes in the photo booth set do not have exceptional formula like Bad Influence.

But if you ran out of any black, red, nude, or metallic silver, this set might be a good choice, since these are all basic colors and can be used any time.

Here are the swatches for the Photo Booth nail set.
Keep in mind that I do not have a good nail technique...
so it could be a good reference how these looks and applies on an ordinary person :)

P.S :
Illamasqua Nail Base Coat

My recent discovery! It was a random pick up, which turned out to be my fav.
I like it much better than Seche clear, O.P.I, and Butter London's base coat.
I have never imagined myself being impressed by a base coat before-you know, Base coat is just a base coat-but this product has:

1. Wonderful Formula (smooth, silky, quick-drying)
2. Wonderful Brush (very easy to apply)
3. Wonderful foundation effect (It covers my terrible ridges almost perfectly. great great great~!)

I am thinking about getting Illamasqua's top coat next time.
