One thing YSL beauty does well is nail lacquer.
I have never come across any YSL polish that ever performed poorly to be honest. Yeah, some of the lighter shades can be a bit on the sheerer side, but a couple of coats always give a nice even finish.
YSL Rose Scabiosa #48 (LE) is no exception to that. I LOVE this cool toned, medium pink. I have nothing similar in my stash and was very excited to pick this up as soon as I returned home from my Christmas vacay.
I achieved full opacity in two coats (applied over the usual Chanel base coat). Later on I did go over it with a top coat which brought out more of a glossy finish. But this photo was taken before the top coat to give you an idea how it looks worn all by itself.
The Guerlain top coat I use extends the wear of these polishes, and also helps with keeping nail breakage to a minimum.
Application wise this was a dream to paint on. The consistency not too runny or too thick, and the signature broad tapered brush allows you to cover a wider surface of the nail and gives better control of application.
Perfect for those who enjoy DIY manicures! You really have to try hard to fail at applying this polish streak free ;-)

Onto more product info.
These give me the best wear time, a solid week without major chipping, definitely wear longer than Chanel or Dior (Chanel being the poorest… visible tip wear within 3 days).
YSL lacquer come in 10ml / 0.34 fl.oz bottles, retail at SGD 37.
I purchased mine at the Ion Orchard counter, Singapore.
In the US they are available at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Saks.
Thank you for stopping by, wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!
