What do shoes and blush have in common? If you asked me that a few months ago, I would have had to come up with quite a creative answer. Ask me that now, with the recent launch of the Pierre Hardy for NARS, collection, and the answer comes much easier.
The famed shoe designer—whose high platform pumps and wedges I can’t get enough of—collaborated with the makeup mavens over at NARS for a limited edition collection featuring two blush shades and six vibrant nail polish duos inspired by Hardy’s summer 2013 shoe collection. The blush palettes are embossed with Hardy’s signature cubic print, and the polishes come packaged in mini shoe boxes with dust bags. This isn’t the first time NARS has partnered with a fashion designer to inspire a line of nail colors—just one year ago I wrote about the brand’s partnership with Thakoon with a similar concept—but in my opinion, this collaboration, with all the extra design touches, was perfectly executed. The line is available now on narscosmetics.com or at your closest NARS beauty counter.
