YSL Tie and Dye La Laque Couture | On Our Radar

YSL La Laque Couture Tie and Dye

I’m not really sure what’s going on here, and I think it’ll probably turn out to be very ill-advised, but: intrigue! Suspense! Potentially terror!

What YSL has to say about the Tie and Dye La Laque Couture nail varnishes:

“Inspired by the Couture Tie & Dye, YSL nail lacquer plays colour in gradation effect just like a sophisticated total look. The coloured base is covered by a “pop coat”for a sugary glossy result. Top Coat can also  be used alone for a “sheer” glittery result on the nails.”

I’d like to see reviews for this one: if the concept works, it’s bound to be very cool, but I feel like we’re more likely to just end up with a lot of awkward swatches instead.

$25 USD & limited edition, in four shades. Get it.

    Now these looks interesting. Not sure if it works out well in reality but they look fun in the pictures. I have no idea what's going on here, do you use all those colours seperatly or do you shake the thing? The suspense is killing me! :p

    • I want to say… separately? It's such a weird concept for a nail varnish! I feel like we've only ever really seen it in lipglosses, and even then: not so great.

  • MissMolotov

    This honestly scares and me and intrigues me at the same time. I need to see this thing in action!!

  • OMG! I want them :)

  • ChynnaBlue

    I would be shocked if these worked out to be anything other than a mess, but I sure would love to be wrong on this one.

    • Haha, my thoughts exactly :P Looks like a disaster, but it would be so darned cool if they turn out to be great!

    You shake them up. Then use them. They are–and I'll quote from the box–a "pearly coloured top coat". They aren't to make tie dyed nails. They give the nails a sugary, shimmery, holographic-without-the-rainbow-finish. Hope this helps. I love them. I have them all.

    • Thanks for the info, Jenny! So glad to hear they're working out for you :)

      • Jenny

        Not a problem. They're a lot like Première Neige. It's just a different visual effect–I mean before hand. Like a seperated indie polish. And 01 is Cool Coat, not Fresh Coat like YSL'w website says–and it's a light baby pink. I don't know why it shows it as a coral. 02 is a neon pink, 03 is a light to midtone purple and 04 is a midtone blue.

        • Yeah, YSL's website is kind of a disaster -.- Thanks again, Jenny — you've done a much better job describing these than the site! ;)

    Here–I'm new to this–and I'm still working on posts on the individual colors–but here are some swatches. I just finished it tonight. http://belletristicbeauty.blogspot.com/2013/04/yv

    If that's not allowed–so sorry!

    • No, this is absolutely wonderful, Jenny! Thanks so much for sharing the link — I'll tweet it during the day tomorrow; I'm sure people will be excited to see the post! :)

    just tried it on my nails – didn't work – just made them look pearly – i didn't shake the bottle just left it as is and then removed the brush and applied!

    • They aren't meant to create a tie dyed look on the nail. The "Tie & Dye" effect is purely visual. The intended effect is a sugary, glittery, iridescent one. Think of them as a separated indie polish–you need to shake them up before you use them. Try it again–over light colors the result is subtler–while over darker colors, it's more dramatic.
