YSL La Laque Couture Nail Lacquer in Brun Henne

Summer summer summertime! Remember that song?

Well, summertime is right around the corner, but with this awesome weather lately, it feels like it’s already here. This new nail polish I acquired is right on time as well. The YSL La Laque Couture Nail Lacquer ($27.00) in Jaune Babouche was on my list, but at the last minute I opted for Brun Henne and I’m glad I did (I still might get the Jaune Bobouche actually). I have been wearing it for three days and it’s still going pretty strong. For me, manicure chip in two days tops. I have yet to paint my nails myself and they last me more than two days.

I did not use a base coat and one coat was plenty opaque. I topped it off with Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel Top Coat, which I will use as a top coat from now on with all my manicures.  I really think it makes a difference when using regular nail polishes as opposed to her gel ones, which I feel have staying power on their own (so I’m glad I found a use for it!). I just love this color against my skin tone and am excited to report I don’t own any other nail polish in a similar color. The polish applied evenly with no streaks and as I said before, one coat was enough. For it’s uniqueness in color, application, and longevity, this one gets an A from me, even with the price. I’m looking forward to experimenting with other polishes from YSL.

I purchased this online from saksfifthavenue.com, shipping was free (score!).
