YSL La Laque Couture Nail Polish Spicy Collection Photos & Nail Swatches

By 16 February, 2014beauty, Nails

YSL’s latest La Laque Couture Spicy Collection consists of 6 new polishes – 5 cream colors, and 1 very pretty gold flaked top coat!

  • 41 Eau de Rose
  • 42 Safran Sultan
  • 43 Opulente Cannelle
  • 44 Ambre Gingembre
  • 46 Poivre Noir
  • 47 Feuille d’Or (Top Coat)


You can see that the collection, as the name would suggest, is mostly made up of warm colors. While I wouldn’t say that this collection has all my favorite shades (I’m a blue, purple and turquoise person), I am pretty certain that these are worth the money at $37 SGD a piece – YSL’s polishes ARE TO DIE FOR. Specifically, their brushes and formulas are a dream to work with and to achieve neat nail curve lines!

I am pretty damn amazed by how good the brush is and even the top coat is smooth and applies like … a dream. (Sorry to use that word twice in two paragraphs haha).

Less talk, more pictures! Had a fun time swatching all 6 colors – it’s been a long time since I’ve done any massive nail polish swatching!

The top coat polish is really pretty on its own, too! I didn’t have any top coat here so it looks a little matte but it’s still pretty stunning isn’t it? ; ) It’s so smooth too and not clumpy at all.


I must say, the colors look even prettier when swatched, especially 41 Eau de Rose! I love Poivre Noire too – it’s extremely rich and makes your hands look fairer since it’s a darker color. Much love for YSL – even if you don’t see anything you like in this collection, I urge you to check out their polishes because of the excellent formula and brush!
