YSL Vert D’orient (36) La Laque Couture Nail Laquer – Swatches & Review

YSL Vert D’orient La Laque Nail Laquer is a one of three shades released in the Summer 2013 Collection. I’m big on green and teal polishes, although I have held off for a while since its release. I think my turning point was when Teri from Bella Chique dazzled me with her imagery of Vert D’orient. I have since picked it up and introduced myself into he world of YSL’s Nail Laquer, yet another product in the YSL line that does not disappoint!


The YSL Nail Laquer formula creates a perfect mani with the greatest of ease. The formula’s consistency is perfect. It glides on nails without ever pooling into your nail beds, thus requiring absolutely no clean-up. The YSL Nail Laquer has a wide and flat brush similar to Dior, though not tapered on the sides. Personally, this brush worked better for me as someone with larger nail beds. Those with more petite nail beds might prefer the brush on the Dior. Nonetheless, the formula is exquisite and along with the brush I can honestly deem this one my favorite formula.


Vert D’Orient is a green/teal with a creme finish. Vert seems to carry more blue tones or more green tones depending on the lighting. I don’t find the shade that unusual and it might certainly be dupable. However that formula is not! Vert D’orient had a long wear time without chipping. The YSL formula is absolutely one to try. I also recommend it to those who struggle with a shaky hand, it seems to do the work for you.

  1. Beautiful! I’m a huge fan of anything greeny lately. I used to stick with nudes and pinks on my nails, but now I’m branching into the more bolder colours!

  2. Hey Taylor, this shade looks amazing on you! I’m still toying with the idea of purchasing it, but I’m on a bit of a low-buy for the moment. Maybe when I’m at the airport in July 😉

  3. Vert D’Orient is gorgeous on you! Totally agree with you on YSL’s formula. I don’t know if it can be beat. It’s almost as if it applies itself. Have you tried Rose Baby Doll?

    1. Yes, Im not too sure the formula could be beat. I have not tried The Rose Baby Doll but it looks so gorgeous. Im not much of a pink person but something about it certainly appeals to me 🙂

  4. Thanks for the link love Taylor! I’m so happy to hear that you love the formula as well! I’m already eyeing other shades now too, lol! I really love this shade, it’s a bit more grown-up and the formula is just excellent! ^^

  5. Such an interesting and beautiful color! It’s very, very pretty. I have two YSL polishes and they do wear well. I haven’t seen a similar shade around, but I haven’t been buying nail polishes lately.. Can you believe that I’m actually tired of buying nail polish? This one could turn me around though 😉
