YSL La Laque Couture
YSL Peace Green La Laque Couture ($28.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is a light-medium aqua green with warm undertones and fine, pearly shimmer that shifts from warmer copper to light pink. It was a thicker, but watery, polish that was hard for me to apply evenly, as the polish would pull to the edges and create an uneven surface, even if I laid my hands flat to try and help the polish level. It had semi-opaque coverage, and I didn’t notice the shimmer create visible lines/streaks. It lasted for seven days with minor tip wear. Cult Nails Thrive (LE, $12.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On (LE, $7.50) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Rescue Beauty Lounge Liberty (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

YSL Love Pink La Laque Couture ($28.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, yellow-toned pink with fine, gold shimmer that shifts from a warmer, orange-gold to a lighter, paler gold. The consistency was thick but running, and the polish tended to pool along the edges without self-leveling as it dried down. It was hard to get streak-free coverage as the shimmer created fine lines that were sometimes visible–depended on the light. Two coats of polish yielded mostly opaque coverage, but you can see some of the nail line coming through. It wore for seven days with minor tip wear on me. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Femme (P, $10.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Guerlain Gemma (P, $26.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
