Quick Review: Le Metier de Beaute Dynasty Nail Lacquer

Le Metier de Beaute Dynasty Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep, shimmering fuchsia.” It’s a rich, deepened ruby red with darker, ruby red shimmer–very fine shimmer that’s still noticeable in natural light but has a thread-like appearance. Illamasqua Charisma is very similar–perhaps a little darker, less red. Zoya Karina is brighter, redder.

It’s fully opaque in two coats, and it dries down to a naturally shiny finish–you don’t need a top coat. I didn’t have any problems with application or the consistency, and it really applied quite nicely. Le Metier de Beaute, generally, has a lovely formula and interesting shades.  Now, they have full-sized bottles, but in the past, they released small bottles.  These smaller bottles can make for a more challenging application if you have longer fingers or larger hands, since the caps are so small.  It contains just over a fourth of a full-sized polish (average size of full-sized polish is 0.50 fl. oz.) but is priced at $10, which is more palatable than say Dior or Chanel’s $20+ price tags (and you get around 0.34 to 0.40 fl. oz. with those).  I typically get a week of wear out of the brand’s formula with no chipping and very minor tip wear.

** A Note on Quick Reviews: In an effort to be more on-the-ball for 2013, I’m digging through my photo folders and getting as much posted as I can. These are not full-length, in-depth reviews, and instead, I’m writing brief reviews. For dupes, I highly suggest checking out The Swatch Gallery; it’s my first stop whenever I am looking for possible dupes. All of the swatches in this post are automatically added to the gallery, so you can compare them for yourself.
