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.

I had better luck with Peace Green than you did. It wasn’t super easy to work with but it wasn’t terrible. I think the shade is so pretty and unique it’s worth the minor difficulty. For me, the shade wore for a week before I removed it. I can’t say that I think the pink shade is worth it as it’s not particularly unique.

It’s been a minute since I’ve had a really bad polish moment, but I felt like these were two of the worst I’ve tried in awhile πŸ™

Wow, Peace Green is stunning!! LOVE that duo chrome sheen, it makes the mint green so much more complex and wearable at the same time. I never thought of paying $28 for a nail polish, but this one is really tempting me, despite flaws in this formula. Eeek, does anyone know of a less expensive dupe???

Here’s hoping someone can help you out! I would hate for you to pay $28 for this type of formula πŸ™

Kelly, thanks for the tip! Yes, it looks more mint blue, but it’s still gorgeous. Oh my, might need that one too, eeeeek!

Katherine, I’ve never seen a good dupe of Peace Green. The shade is so unique. On me, I got undertone/duo shades from everything from yellow to pink to lavender depending on the light. It lasted about 5 days on me before minor tip wear…which was barely visible bc of the shade. I’m happy I bought it. That being said, I would have expected the formula to be much better for the price.

Oh my gosh, now I have to have it, it sounds absolutely gorgeous!! I already have some duo- chrome mint green shadows, would be nice to have a polish like that too πŸ™‚

You do have to fight with it some for application but the results are stunning. I use a good base coat and leave a bit of cuticle conditioner around the edges so the pooling wasn’t a problem for me (once I got the feel for how much I could “safely” put on the brush.) I think it could really benefit greatly from something as simple as a better brush. I may try a substitute brush next time I wear mine. You definitely need 2 coats and honestly I think 3 would be even better but again, bc of the shade, any imperfections really aren’t visible unless you look very very closely.

Deborah, you’re an angel!! I just snagged it, and it’s on its way to me. Can’t wait! They must’ve re-stocked it. Thanks again !! πŸ™‚

There’re some indie polishes that are similar, but not exact dupes – Emily de Molly’s Copper Patina is one, MooMoo’s Signature’s Bunny’s Secret Garden is another.

I’ve to say, though, that I had no problem whatsoever with Peace Green. I wore it twice since I got it, applied two coats each time, and it was neither streaky not difficult to apply.

Thanks so much for the tips dorit! Copper Patina is more blue, but it’s still stunning, and Bunny’s Secret Garden is gorgeous mint green, might be the closest one. In my search for a Peace Green dupe, I seem to be finding tons of other stuff I like LOL Glad you were able to snag yours before it was gone!

Pretty shades. If I were to wear these, I’d use an opaque cream polish in a similar shades and top with these. Very in keeping with Pantone’s colors for this year.

Ugh, why did such a fabulous pale duochrome mint green nail polish have to have so many issues? This is the mint of my dreams, I tell you. But $28 for a substandard nail polish, I just don’t know….it is so unusual and pretty that I’m fighting some strong waves of temptation here!

3 coats, ye gads!!! Actually, I would probably do what Rachel R mentioned, first use an opaque mint polish, then wear one coat of Peace Green over it. Duochromes can be so thin and too transparent!

Omg, I looked all over for Peace Green, finally was able to find it online, ordered it, and then it was canceled. I was sooooo disappointed. it’s so pretty, even with the not-so-great marks.

Such sweet, spring shades, however, it’s outrageous to charge $28 for a poor performing nail polish! Peace looks more unique. If it was an A I would be very tempted.

LOL! Maybe I am not describing it right, but they were thick… but sheerer? Pooled on the sides a lot πŸ™

They do! Most of the high-end formulas these days applies just fine, and of course, wear is YMMV, but these were just disappointing.

Peace Green is so pretty! I wish it was better quality. I have enough issues painting my nails without smudging/generally messing them up, without the formula fighting me too.

Peace Green looks neat. I don’t have anything like it. I don’t pay more than $10 for nail polish, anymore, though. It’s weird, as long as a shade is a normal type of formula (not a texture, or matte), 90% of the time, there will eventually be a dupe on the cheaper end.

So here’s to hoping we’ll see one come out that performs even better!

I wonder if it’s a body chemistry thing– because I had no problem whatsoever with this formula. And I love the color of Peace Green — so unique. I recently wore another YSL polish I had and no problem.

It sounds like maybe there is inconsistency with the formula, because I have heard both ways – rants and raves – on this shade! I have had great luck with other YSL shades, though.

That green one is certainly interesting and really pertty, but I’ll stay strong and and just walk past the YSL counters.

I love your reviews but I’m never able to see the shimmer in the nail colors, in your photos. Have you tried using a different setting on your light box? Even the crΓ¨me shades are a bit hard to tell what the color is really like. Just wondering, thanks.
