YSL Vert d'Orient (36) La Laque Couture Nail Lacquer
YSL Vert d’Orient (36) La Laque Couture Nail Lacquer

YSL Vert d’Orient (36) La Laque Couture Nail Lacquer ($25.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is a green-leaning teal with a cream finish. Illamasqua Venuous is very similar–slightly lighter. China Glaze Exotic Encounters is darker. MAC Ocean Dip is greener, brighter. MAC Salad Dressed is lighter. MAC Screening Room is bluer.

Vert d’Orient was fully opaque after two coats of polish. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, and the polish flowed fluidly across the nail without bubbling, streaking, or pooling along the edges. It dried down to a naturally shiny finish (but a top coat would really perfect the finish). I tested this particular shade during the past month, and it lasted seven days with very minor tip wear and no chipping.

  1. I have one YSL nailpolish (Violet Baroque), but it chips quickly and easily on me, so I was a bit weary for that one. Now that it got the Temptalia stamp of approval, I’ll make sure to put my hands on it, because the colour is absolutely stunning!
    Too bad it’s limited edition though, I thought this was permanent.

    • Good and bad news for me is that almost *nothing* chips on me – so bad news for being on the end of normal, good news for me (personally) I suppose… lol!

      • Yeah, I know, but still, here’s me hoping that they have improved their formula, because it calls my name every time I see it at the counter! :)

  2. OMG I love this color!!

  3. This is such a stunning shade, love it. The finish is very clean and pretty

    I’ve been so over-saturated with neon, bubblegum and candy colours so this shade, still a good, strong pop of colour (without it SCReaMiNG colour), is gorgeous and so flattering on you.

    Is it just me or does anybody else see some visible nail line. It may just be the pics, irl it could be more opaque.

    • I don’t see any, and for sure not in person – it was almost opaque in a single coat.

    • Amy

      I see it on some fingers in some pictures if I look very hard, making me think it may be due to the lighting.. It’s nitpicky and you probably wouldn’t see it at all in person.

    I have a dupe of this color, almost perfect match : American Apparel – Malibu Green.

    I am a sucker for blue-greens. China Glaze Exotic Encounters is one of my faves and I am trying to tell myself I don’t need this one because its so similar, but its just different enough that I’m really really tempted.

  8. Such a gorgeous colour. Sadly, it’ll be a while before I can justify that price for a nail polish! Gotta get rich first!

  9. Lark

    That is the color of half the interiors in Paris. Stunning! No insipid mint green here- there’s a burnt umber and maybe some orange to give this depth and sophistication.

    Whoever is doing color at YSLs lisencee gets a big Congrats on this color! Very traditional French, very sophisticated.

  10. Carolyn

    This looks similar to Maybelline Urban Utopia (limited edition) color. This might be a smidgen darker???

  11. VickyM

    This is a very pretty green, I love dark greens, I have a bracelet in this color. However, it is quite expensive and not as unique as Chanel Azure, I think it´s very chic but can´t justify the price.

  12. What a beautiful colour! It is especially great as it can be worn in both summer and in winter. I must also add that your manicure is perfectly executed which makes the nail varnish look even more beautiful!

    this is like a more green-ish version of a-england’s galahad from the mythicals collection. Hope to see a review on A-England’s range one day.
