YSL La Laque Couture

I can’t post about the new range of nail colours from the lovely YSL without including these drool worthy promo images… this is like the make-up obsessives version of a big bag of amazing pick and mix… Gorgeous!

I have four colours from the new range to play with and I’m going to be all controversial and say that it’s not the colours I love… but the clear base and top coat! I know, this is so random and to be honest – I do love the colours too. But for the first time since I was probably in school and nail varnish wasn’t allowed I’ve actually been enjoying just using the base/top coat on it’s own.
Having said all that the actual colours from the range are gorgeous too. Although you wouldn’t guess it on paper, I actually really like the combo of taupe/grey/gold together… if I was better at nail art I would definitely try something creative with these.

Of the shades, I have tried out the Gris Deco one (above) so far as well as the clear – it applies well, two coats to opaque and dried quickly. It didn’t last too great, but I did put it through a lot in the two days of wearing it (Spring clean etc…) so I’ll let it off. Next up, I want to try the gold to set off what minimal tan I have post holiday!

What do you think of the new shades, any catch your eye from my pics or the promo pics??

    The “Dore Efovre” is such a beautiful colour – I wish i had the guts to splurge all out and buy it, but it’s so dang expensive!

    Love, Ana
