Nar's Nail Lacquer in Koh Lanta was a shade released exclusively for Nordstrom's Anniversary in July of this year. However, Koh Lanta is available on the Nars website,

Another cloudy day in the land of the rising sun, so Koh Lanta appears a smidgen darker then it actually is.

 Here's a little bit of geography mixed in with your beauty, Koh Lanta is a group of several islands of the Andaman coast of southern Thailand. Apparently Mr. Francois Nars drew inspiration for this lacquer from his time spent traveling the islands.

Koh Lanta is a red based dark plum shade with a creme finish.

When I saw this Lacquer on the Nordstrom website, I had to have it! Unfortunately, once I got Koh Lanta in my mitts...I was disappointed with the quality of this polish. The Application was streaky and left bald spots even after three coats. 

In the photo above, you can still see some of the bald spot patches.

Koh Lanta is a beautiful Shade but this is a polish that I'll probably take with me to the nail salon and have the manicurist deal with the hassle of application. So, I will take responsibility for my purchase and use Koh Lanta but this is a polish that I wouldn't recommend, definitely not worth the $17 price tag. 

If you own Koh Lanta, I'd like to hear your opinions on this nail Lacquer. 

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time
