Le Métier de Beauté Resort 2011: The Jet Set Nail Lacquers

So um, as a warning, coming back to humid Malaysia means my cuticles are in horrendous disrepair (I'm also suffering from breakouts, but strategic photo cropping ensures you'll never have to look at the horror), but we shall trudge on in the name of beauty reporting! I was battling mosquitos and all manner of wildlife while taking these photos, perhaps they thought I had candy drops on the tips of my fingers. I could certainly be fooled.

The Le Métier de Beauté Resort Collection Jet Set Nail Lacquers consist of a hot pink, a neon yellow, and a fluorescent orange. The keywords we're looking for are "bright" and "bold." They remind me of M&Ms. 

L-R: ShocKEN Pink, Yield to Yellow, Not So Safe Orange

L-R: Yield to Yellow, Not So Safe Orange, ShocKEN Pink

While Yield to Yellow comes in the regular formula, Not So Safe Orange and ShocKEN Pink dry down to a sort of jelly finish. It was my first time encountering the squishy texture and I was positively giddy with delight. In the picture above I painted each nail with two coats and no top coat so you can see the texture of the polish.

The only one I might hesitate to recommend is Yield to Yellow, since the formula is thicker than the other two and a little harder to go on smooth (like most other yellow polishes). In the picture above and you can see that with two coats it is still a little uneven, but with careful application I believe it will be fine.

A little runway inspiration: Thakoon Fall 2011 featured these exact three colors.

The Jet Set Nail Lacquers retail for $18 each and will be exclusively available at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus in-stores and online in early January 2012.

  6. LMDB is not available in Sydney, Australia where I live. I am currently on holidays in Hong Kong where LMDB is available at about 5 locations. Unfortunately, the selection is very limited (e.g. Corinthian eyeshadow and Fraise lip creme are both unavailable). The only kaleidoscope available is City Girl.
