Swatch It Saturday - Nars Desperado

Happy Saturday all! This will be a quick post since I am off to go apartment hunting in a little while. This has been a drama-filled couple of weeks for me since I found out that I have to find a new place to live by October 3rd! We've been looking but no luck so far; either the places are too small or just right but in horrible areas. Ugh- I truly wish I could afford to just buy a house and be done with renting for good.  Anyway- enough of my drama- on to the polish.

Today, I have Nars Desperado for your viewing pleasure. This is a color that has been on my wishlist for awhile so I was stoked when I finally got my hands on it. 

Desperado is a burnished metallic gold. The formula is very thin which I was actually a bit disappointed by. It took me three coats to achieve full opacity. It does apply well and doesn't have too many brush streaks once fully dry which is usually the problem with metallics.

Nars retails for $18 and can be found at Nordstrom as well as directly from the Nars website.
