Quick Review: Le Metier de Beaute Silk Road Nail Lacquer

Le Metier de Beaute Silk Road Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is described as a “metallic, bronzed copper.” It’s a rich, darkened copper with coppery-orange shimmer and a metallic finish. When I quickly looked for a good dupe, I came up empty-handed, because the majority of copper shades I’ve reviewed in the past are brighter, less brown-based.

Silk Road is fully opaque after two coats, and the consistency was naturally thin but not watery.  This one had threads of metallic shimmer that ran through it, which look a bit like brush strokes under brighter light (like flash), but they’re very subtle and barely-there.  For a metallic finish? particularly minimal visible brush strokes.  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.
