Can you take away awesome if you put more awesome on top of it? This was the question when I first thought about layering YSL Première Neige on top of my much beloved and adored piCture pOlish Cosmos. Would it be too much or exactly right?
Yves Saint Laurent’s stunning top coat La Laque Couture 33 Première Neige became a huge lemming of mine the second I saw Eugenia’s gorgeous swatches of it. Of course it was already sold out here. Murphy’s nail polish lemming law. What else did I expect? But then my Première Neige hero Mara superstar ♥ helped me getting my hands on this breathtaking multichrome top coat. Of course I bought not only one but two bottles. Chance of resisting to pick up a backup bottle? Zero.
Usually I start with pictures I took in direct lighting but this time I had to start this post with a picture of YSL Première Neige I took inside of my lightbox with indirect lighting. Most of the time the multichrome shimmer shows its blue to purple effect but in some lightings you can even catch a bit of a pink shimmer.
Yves Saint Laurent’s Première Neige is not only a gorgeous top coat but it also fascinating to shake up the bottle until you can use it when the multichrome shimmer flecks have been blended into the clear base – just like in a snow globe.
