Looking for an investment polish? Look no further than YSL’s latest La Laque Couture Nail Lacquers! These have intense colour pay off, infinite shine, amazing application & remain chip free for a whole freaking week. Before this starts to sound like an advertisement, I best stop – but I can’t help but rave through this review!
Rouge Pop Art is one of the best selling numbers from the range and I can see why. It is a perfect, timeless red – in short, a must have shade for your collection! I can not imagine it looking mediocre on anyone. It is glossier than your average evergreen red, with just that extra oomph.
What I love the most about this is the formula – it is pretty much flawless. While, yes, I have tried some other fabulous nail polishes in the past, what sets this one apart is how it sets itself – almost as if it is part of your nail, if it makes sense. It applies rather thick, but somehow it is impossible to peal it off. It wears perfectly for a weak, with minor tip wear, no chipping. I am also massively impressed by its application – the brush is awfully similar to Lancôme’s Le Vernis in Love line, almost identical. I would not be surprised if they are identical because Lancôme & YSL are both owned by the same parent company, L’Oréal. Anyways, the point being, the brush is kind of an innovation because it covers exactly the polish you need for one nail (except pinky) and spreads this around evenly. That in itself makes the polish a winner for me as I am extremely shaky when applying polish. It is also very fast drying; you should be ready to go in less than ten minutes!
So while, yes, $27 is a lot to drop off on a nail polish, this one is most certainly worth it. Especially if you are someone who detests changing polish every third day. Maybe I can share from my experience, but whenever I glanced at my nails, I smiled – maybe it’s the YSL thing or maybe it’s just too gorgeous – I kind of think it’s a mix of both!
Overall thoughts: Definitely a spectacular launch by YSL – every polish lover will appreciate the flawless formula. This red in particular is a classic with limitless oomph, enough said!
