Le Métier de Beauté Brown and Metallic Nail Polishes

This last installment absolutely slays me in the foam-in-mouth I-want-all way. Le Métier de Beauté does killer browns and metallics and had the holographic/glitter top coat thing going on way before Nails Inc. came over to the States. Looking at pictures now, I wish I bought all three of the browns and the top coat, but hey, these are not limited edition so we can get it whenever we want! 

L-R: Kona, Bali, La Belle, Tres Taupe, Grey Gardens, Silver Belle, Femme Fatale, Disco Fever

L-R: Kona, Bali, La Belle, Tres Taupe, Grey Gardens, Silver Belle, Femme Fatale, Disco Fever

I knew I couldn't capture accurate colors in the salon so I placed all the tape on a paper and brought it home for a dose of my regular lighting and camera. As you can see, the browns and metallics completely reflected light, so I'm thankful the photograph above was as close to true color as it could be. That taupe color is so intriguing, but I wouldn't purchase that without trying it on my finger before. If you have it, let me know how it looks!

These Le Métier de Beauté nail polishes retail for $18. They are exclusively available at the John Barrett Salon in New York City, but you will be able to order them through the lovely Heather at 212-872-2700 x2714. Let her know I sent you!


  1. Thank you for my dose of happy nail colours!

  2. These colors are so lush! Want them all <3

  3. wowie zowie!!! i love silver belle and femme fatale. will these ever be available for sale nationwide?

  4. Wow! :) Thank you for letting us know about these lovely nail polishes. I have three in mind I'd like to order, but waiting to see if you will by any chance do a post with the ones you picked for yourself, in case you entice me with your beautiful photos of some other color/s on your nails I thought I can do without! lol

  5. I like this installment. The colors are rich and creamy.


  6. OH GOD, I should not have looked..... :) So pretty!

  7. I die! All of the browns/grays need to be mine.

  8. Mmm, browns look like chocolatey goodness. Please come overseas, LMdB!

  9. Jamilla- Now all I need are happy nails to paint them on :(

    Flyavstad- me too T_T

    jeanette- I don't think so, unfortunately. These are specially made for the salon (they have a manicure section) and I heard they weren't even used to be for sale but someone changed the rules and I'm super glad they did!

    Anonymous- I'd like to know what are your three in mind :) Je N'ai Se Quoi will appear on the blog tomorrow so you can take a look, but I won't be featuring the others I bought, which are Mon Petit Cheri, Ma Belle Amie, Tussled Tulle, Mint Bliss, Bon Voyage, and Kona (though I regret not snatching Uma Paro and Bali up) in case you were interested to know :)

    Girlie Blogger- like chocolate yum!

    Tracy- :) the whole time I was doing this I thought "this is how Karla Sugar feels"

    Leigh- Will you be making an order? Would love to know what are your picks!

    peach- #cosign!

  10. Thanks for letting me know which ones you picked :) The three I have in mind are: #1 Gilded lily- don't have a nice rich green like that #2 Tussled tulle- looks like a nice mute color, but wondering if it is too sheer? Is it possible in 2 coats not to see your visible nail line with it? #3 Was Mint bliss, but now you got me thinking Kona! lol, oh shoot, now I'm thinking Bali too! Great & tomorrow I'll be probably thinking Je N'ai Quoi! Just yesterday I received my LMdB in Magic at Dusk thanks to your post on it. I love it, very true to your pics, only downside is on Neiman's site the older colors are still listed at $15 instead of $10 :( I love your blog, always great reviews & pics of not only nails, but of your beautiful face too! x Naomi

  11. Ask me a tough question, why don't you, Xiao? I am fully prepared to place an order in January once the holiday madness has settled down. Here's my wish list:

    Gilded Lily
    Hope Diamond Blue
    Uma Paro
    Mon Petit Cheri
    Ma Belle Amie
    Tussled Tulle
    La Belle
    Tres Taupe
    Grey Gardens

    I swear I'm frothing at the mouth at the prospect of discovering these beauties.

  12. Anon/Naomi- #1 you guys are making me regret Gilded Lily! #2 I can't answer that yet but hopefully someone gets it soon and lets us know :( #3 I think Kona and Bali are SUCH great colors, but I'm totally in a brown mood right now. Give me two months and I'll be all over the pinks/oranges

    Yay for Magic at Dusk. Lucky you too I think there are literally only a few bottles floating around for sale :) Thank you for the kind words! (I promise my face will come back soon. It's just a huge acne problem is refusing to go away right now...)

    Leigh- Nyahahahaha. And don't forget LMdB's resort collection features three very bright nail shades! I bet Grey Gardens will be an unexpected fav with you :D It's one of the nicer grays I've seen. If I didn't already own RBL Stormy I would jump on that in a heartbeat

  13. aw boo. do you know if the salon will ship nationwide if i order? i don't expect to visit NY anytime soon.

    thanks for all these swatches by the way! =)

  14. jeanette- yes they will! I think there is a shipping charge but I cannot be sure what that is. Which ones are you thinking of getting?

  15. yay! i think i'm going to have to order at least a few.
    this is kind of atypical for me but i think i've fallen in love with their blues! maybe because my current nail polish collection is void of blues. their coral color does also look amazing.

    thanks for responding so fast! =)

  16. While some tower defense games allow players to directly control how certain elements will be placed, others restrict the players to somewhat limited options.

    A whole variety on offer, these games offer an component
    of adventure and violence like action and adventure genre games.

    You will possibly not fully understand but reading that
    Evony approach guide i learned there is killer strategies known by probably underneath 1% of the overall game enthusiasts.
    Furthermore, you will find generally some gaming
    websites which are geared to help offering lots of different games in mere about every
    genre. Motivation and determination usually are not tangible items, and
    as such, there's no physical method of teaching someone to cultivate motivation and
    determination. You also need to place in more practice behind problem situations so that you
    don. Single player flash games are played by the single person for his
    very own entertainment whereas a multi-player application is played by a number of
    people creating an online community. The tutorial does a good job of teaching you the way to experience the game but you'll need to try out several matches by
    yourself prior to deciding to really get the strategy down. Also played against others, there
    exists a higher rate of winning with online poker than other
    games that rely read more about chance. It's clear to understand why
    many companies need computers to oversee their supply chains.
    The only bad side of flash games occurs when a gamer gets too addictive and he or she already compromised other important things.
    However, there's a lot to get said to the benefits produced
    by the interactive team and individual projects and exercises employed in some
    management development programs. Strategy games like Warhammer, Nuke Zone, and Blizzards continuously difference in relation to its previous decisions taken that can possess a bearing upon future decisions.
    You will see several types of information with each of the games you choose with direction to
    be sure that you just know how to experience. * Include strategic thinking as being a formal element of management development
    programs;. The Zerg’s greatest advantage is the power to repopulate their army almost instantaneously.
    Follow these baseball pitching strategies, and you are bound to dominate
    batters in any respect numbers of competition. There are lots of places, both land based
    and internet-based, where the action could be enjoyed.
    They should have the respect and appreciation that they can deserve.

    You might be thinking that all board games are manufactured for three, four or more players.

    If you might be a longtime game player, chances are which you have played
    some form of tower defense or another at some
    point in your gaming life. Are there any Roulette gambling systems that basically work.
    But don't be concerned, she accocunts for for this with
    her superb artes. The game puts you in charge
    of considered one of three factions in an epic battle
    for galactic supremacy along with the player's ultimate goal is usually to dominate the galaxy by colonising
    every planet in a very map. The internet contains the widest
    alternative of strategy games online entirely complimentary;
    it relies upon you which video game you select.
