mark Nail This Look Nail Lacquer and Flip-Flop Set Review

2014 has been a thrilling year for beautiful releases from mark - especially if you, like me, are a polish-aholic. In the course of only a few months they have debuted not one, not two, but three gorgeous polish gift sets - beginning with the Nail This Look Nail Color and Bracelet Set {which I swatched / reviewed here}; followed by the Nail This Look Nail Color and Ring Set {which I swatched / reviewed here}; and now, just in time for summer, the Nail This Look Nail Lacquer and Flip-Flop Set - which features one bright and one muted nail color; along with a palm frond-adorned pair of flip flops that are perfect for poolside lounging.

Nudist {left} and Azure {right} are the ultra-pretty polish shades found in this collection. Given the fact that one shade is so work-apropos and the other is seriously pool party perfect has made me dub this collection the business in the front, party in the back duo. Seriously.


Nudist is a Dusty Rose-Meets-Mauve. Dupe Alert: Nudist is a dupe for Deborah Lippmann's Modern Love. Nudist is one of those colors that changes with its surroundings. In certain lights it takes on more of a tan / nude hue; in others it leans more mauve. Regardless of atmosphere, it is a stunning neutral shade that could easily work on a variety of skintones. The formula here was great. It was non-streaky and didn't try to infiltrate my cuticles; and after only just one coat it was nearly opaque {something rare for a color like this}. This is 2 coats.

Azure is an Indigo Blue with Subtle Shimmer. It's lighter than Chanel Le Vernis 667 Bel-Argus and Essie Aruba Blue; but on the same level in terms of shimmer depth. I really, really love this one. The formula was amazing here, as well. Despite the fact that the shimmer adds almost a frostiness to the color, you don't wind up with those annoying brushstrokes - just a smooth finish. To me, Azure is the color to accompany you on vacation - it's just perfect! This is 2 coats.


What do you think of this collection?

I love the blue, I am actually about to paint my nails a blue, I had a copper, bronze color on them but it wore off pretty quick with only one coat! Happy Almost Weekend!
