Because I have such an affinity for Le Metier de Beaute, Dior and Chanel polishes, I tend to try to steer clear of other high end designer brands when I go shopping for a nail color. That being said, when I saw the 33 Premiere Neige Top Coat La Laque Couture from Yves Saint Laurent I couldn’t contain myself.
Premiere Neige (shown above as one coat over OPI Anti-Bleak) has a clear base and a very fine iridescent shimmer throughout. In the bottle it reminds me of when sunlight hits fresh snow, almost like a fairy is bopping along and sprinkling its magic dust upon your manicure.
This top coat will not dry quickly, so make sure you’re giving yourself a mani when you have time to sit and wait for an appropriate dry time. Also, as this sits in your stash, the shimmer will settle, but if you just give it a good shake it will easily distribute throughout the bottle again.
… and just for giggles, here is another fun bottle shot in direct sunlight:
Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture retails for $25.00 and is available at Nordstrom.
