Are you sitting down? If you're reading this post from your phone, you might want to find a park bench and plant yourself. Yup... I'm building up. You know when I get THIS dramatic it's gotta be something great.
Le Metier de Beaute is a new brand to the scene, and even newer to me. They continue to floor me every single time I buy an item. Quality and beauty aside, their customer service is AMAZING.
For the 2011 Nordstrom Anniversary SaleLe Metier de Beaute released a set of nail polishes called Rock 'N' Romance. The set contains four polishes and they are a NORDSTROM EXCLUSIVE set.

- Heat of the Night: a passionate black cherry.
- Midnight Rendezvous: a shimmering, steely midnight blue.
- True Romance: a delicate pale rose with a subtle metallic nude finish.
0.14 oz. each.
A blue has never captured my heart the way Midnight Rendezvous has. I used 2 coats with this one, no base or top coat. The tone and sparkle of this particular blue can truly not be matched. It covered SO well, like it wanted to melt onto my nails.
Heat of the Night
Heat of the Night is so MOLTEN... it's the color of blackened burgundy, and reminds me of my pre-children Mitsubishi 2-door love. I used two coats for the swatch above, but could have gotten away with one coat with no problems. No top coat or base coat was used.
While still amazingly beautiful, True Romance was my least favorite from the collection. Obviously every set needs a nude... but this would have been fun as a duochrome nude, something more rock and roll. I used 3 coats above with no base coat and no top coat.
Chrome Passion. You devil. Chrome Passion was my #1 reason for buying this set. The fact that I loved ALL of the shades (with 2 out of the other 3 knocking me off of my feet) was just an added bonus. Look at that freaking amazing black base and holo glitter. I had to do two pics to show my adoration. above I used 3 coats, but could have done two. I just couldn't stop painting this beauty.
Application on all shades was easy breezy, even, glorious. Wear on LMdB polishes is always outstanding. If you've been looking to check out their top notch polishes, now is the perfect time.
This is a PHENOMENAL DEAL. This entire set is only $25 for FOUR Le Metier de Beaute Nail Polishes! Normally these polishes run anywhere from $10-$18, respectively.
The BEST part is shipping is FREE. Call your local Nordies... heck, call ANY Nordies and orders $25 and over ship for FREE. FREE is a fun word. Let's use it more ;) If you would rather order from the Nordstrom.com site, use code BEAUTY at checkout for $5 shipping on beauty purchases of $50 or more.
PS - Dear Le Metier de Beaute, Please make it your business to enlarge the bottle size of Chrome Passion so I can keep it forever and ever and ever ... Love, Me.
