YSL Duo Terriblement Noir

IMG_4687

A few weeks ago, I introduced the new YSL Holiday 2011 makeup look to you. Yesterday, I finally found the time to test the nail polish duo “N°6 Duo Terriblement Noir”. I am so happy with the result and hope that you will like it, too.

The two blacks, one matte and one glossy, have a wonderful texture and look great worn alone. But I couldn’t resist reproducing the French manicure look from YSL’s ad campaign using the matte polish as the base and the glossy one for the tips. The only bummer is that you have to be really careful when using hand cream or cuticle oil as this will damage the matte effect easily.

The New Meaning of French

The New Meaning of French


The new meaning of French is bright and colourful. Chanel has started the trend with their recent Noir et Or twist on French manicure and YSL is taking the new hype even a little further with Rock and Baroque, the French house’s make-up collection for fall 2010.

The New French Manicure


Four different colour combinations are available to achieve the modern look on your nails: Belle de Jour (blue and turquoise), Riche Gauche (orange and pink), Belle de Nuit (gold and purple) and Y-Cone (the classic French combo).

CIMG6797As they were out in the US already, I got my hands on them. I can tell you, it was love at first brushstroke. The brushes are bevelled which makes the varnishing of the nails a lot easier.

CIMG6798Supposed to be released in Switzerland in the next week or two. The whole collection is really beautiful, so please check it out.
And if you cannot wait, experiment with the nail polishes you have at home. Enjoy!

LoL, Sandra
