YSL is adding new collection of their Nail Polish range. La Laque Couture Spicy Collection consist of 1 gold flaky glitters and 6 cream shades. The shades released in this collection varies; some shades are very unique, it is something that I have not worn before whereas some other shade are quite similar to some of my nail polishes in my collection.
41 Eau de Rose
This is described as Delicate Rose Petal Pink. The shade is very girly and the shade is opaque in two layers.
The swatches of Eau de Rose is taken by Monica.
42 Safran Sultan
With La Laque Couture no 42 Saffran Sultan, YSL creates an atypical, intensely warm shade that is both surprising and chic. Essential for an inimitable, shade for an avant-garde YSL look.
According to the press release, YSL describe this shade as a royal yellow. It looks like a yellow mustard cream shade too. This is a very unique shade and I have nothing like this in my stash.
43 – Opulente Cannelle.
YSL describe this as a rich coral shade. I find that this shade is a mixture of a deep rose shade combined with brown. This shade reminds me of Moroccan houses with the exotic feeling. This is my go to color whenever I don’t feel like having a red nails but at the same time I don’t wish to have a nude nails too.
44 Ambre Gingemembre
YSL describes this shade as oriental orange. Somehow this shade reminds me of pumpkin too.
46 – Poivre Noir
This color is describes as piquant plum. This shade is gorgeous and I love it so much. It is a deep plum shade which is suitable for all occasions.
46 – Piment d’Ailleurs
YSL describes this shade as torrid red. In the swatch below, I applied Feuille d’Or on my index finger.
47 Feuille d’Or
By just looking at the bottle, I am hooked onto this glitter shade. The glitter is gorgeous and it is looking festive. The texture of this nail polish is nice and it is easy to apply. Unlike some other glitter polishes, this glitter shade is not sticky and the gold sprinkles adds a touch of festive feeling to my nail.
Some tips from YSL on applying Feuille d’Or:
- Applied over the opulent shades of La Laque Couture Spicy Collection. APply a fine coat over the entire nail, or just the half moons or the tips.
- If you wish, apply a second coat to intensify the gilded look.
- Feuille d’Or top coat can also be applied alone on bare nails for a 24 karat effect.
My Final Thought on the nail polishes in La Laque Couture Spicy Collection:
YSL never fail to impress me on their nail polish quality. The nail polishes are easy to apply; the brush are wide so it helps nail polish to be applied evenly and more easily. The shades are opaque in two coats and it does not feel thick when applied. Most YSL nail polishes last on my finger perfectly for about 3 days – I type everyday with my nails touching the keyboard and I do houseworks too. I am glad that YSL is always consistent with the formula of their nail polish. I can say that YSL is my favorite designer nail polish brand.
