Review & Swatches: Urban Decay NAKED Nail Kit

As part of Urban Decay’s early spring releases, you’ll find the NAKED Nail Kit at Sephora now. This set of six travel size (.16 oz each) nail polishes is part of their ever-expanding NAKED family; joining the collection of existing eyeshadow palettes, liquid foundation, cheek palette (to be reviewed soon!), and beauty balm. These beautiful neutral shades were inspired by their Facebook fan favorite eyeshadow shades from the original NAKED Palette, each one new and exclusive to this set! Let’s take a closer look…

The polish formula is big 3-free (toulene, formaldehyde, DBP). In regards to flow, some shades work better for me than others; while Smog, Hustle, and Toasted were a dream, Naked was a little troublesome since it’s opaque. I noticed that all of the shades seemed to dry really quickly. And despite having teeny-tiny bottles, the NAKED Nail Kit polish bottles are home to full-size brush tips (220 strands).

When it comes to length of wear—I’ve only had these since Monday, and I can already tell that these would be 3-day shades for me at the max. Even with a good base coat and top coat, I’ve got signs of stress at the tips with Smog. So it’s not a particularly long-wearing formula for me, but I find it to be better than basic.

Bottom Line…

I love the assortment of shades in this darling little kit! I wish I could get more intensity out of Creep, and that Sidecar’s glitter was a little smoother on the finish. Smog, Hustle, and Toasted are totally stunning!
