YSL La Laque Winter Green #43 – Mani of the Week

Wintergreen is from YSL for the fall. There is a second color #44- Midnight Blue which I also bought.

I’ll post the pics of that one later this week. I got them both online at Neiman Marcus. The bottle caught my eye. Try to tell me that bottle isn’t gorgeous. You can’t do it can you?

I got a thumbs up from my manicurist and from the lady who was getting her nails done next to me on this color. It’s a blue green/teal with a shimmer that seems to come from deep within the polish. I’m wearing two coats in the pics above.  I  couldn’t get my pics to show the shimmer but trust me it’s there. The closest color I have to Wintergreen is Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal.

Left: RBL Teal
Right: YSL Wintergreen
Top: RBL Teal
Bottom: YSL Wintergreen

They are in the same family but the RBL color is deeper and more opaque because there’s no shimmer. With the YSL Wintergreen it’s like being out in the ocean on a dark night and watching twinkles of light reflecting on the surface. It’s a beautiful color and I’m glad to add it to the family.

Have a great week !

    Ooooooh, gorgeous! I have been thinking about getting a deep teal-y green for fall and that color is perfect!
