Pierre Hardy for Nars Summer 2013

Several beauty bloggers in USA and UK have blogged about designer Pierre Hardy creating a colour palette for Nars. The Pierre Hardy-Nars collection consists of 6 'nail polishes' (but actually it's 6 pairs of 2 nail polish colours, which makes it 12 colours but you can't purchase a half of the pair on its own) and 2 blushers. This collection is launching in May (1 May in USA, uncertain exactly when in UK). I first read about it here.

Pierre Hardy for Nars Nail Polish Pair in Sharks

I have my eye on the following nail designs once my splitting nails problem lessen. Wouldn't they look even more gorgeous in Sharks colours?

At this point, it seems uncertain if Singapore would get this collection. Singapore did get the Andy Warhol collection as Nars entered Singapore late 2012 and it was a perfect opportunity for the brand to showcase their offerings. However, when I popped by the Nars counter on 4th April 2013, the Andy Warhol collection was no longer stocked (but apparently still available for sale online in USA). 

Her World Plus has also sent out a tweet on this collection but as their source is AFP, they've just mentioned the launch date of 1 May (which I believe is the USA date and not the confirmed date of launch in Singapore). 

As beauty journalists, can you confirm 1 May is the exact date of release is in Singapore before informing your readers? We rarely get makeup released at the same time as those in USA or UK so if Nars Singapore has a worldwide release date, that'll be something to talk about. Come on, people!

Update on 30 April 2013
The Straits Times Urban supplement has published that the Pierre Hardy for Nars collection will be available exclusively at the On Peddar Scotts Square outlet on 25 and 26 May (2-6 pm). The makeup will be available at Tangs from 1 June. Nail polishes will be retailing at S$43 and blushers are going for S$65.
