Le Metier de Beaute Silk Road Nail Lacquer – Swatches and Review

Silk Road is another stunning success from the Le Metier de Beaute Fall/Winter 2011 collection. This polish is easily a one coater and there were no issues with brush streaks. These pics show two coats and I apologize once again for the abysmal condition of my nails.

Bringing together wealth and mystique, Le Metier de Beaute introduces EAST MEET WEST, the newest limited edition nail lacquer collection for Fall/Winter 2011.
Inspired by the jewels, spices and luxurious fabrics traveled along the Silk Road EAST MEET WEST includes four bold hues with a touch of shimmering sheen.
Mixing daring colors and understated elegance, each shade is a must have for the Fall and Winter seasons:
Dynasty—a deep, shimmering fuchsia.
Anatolia—a rich plum illuminated with bronzy, golden shimmer.
Silk Road—a metallic, bronzed copper.
Urban Dweller— a rich chocolate plum with golden effervescence.
Specifically formulated to be Three-Free without formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate (DBP), Proposition 65-compliant and fortified with strengthening proteins and hydrators, Le Metier de Beaute Nail Lacquers are highly pigmented for rich, glossy, long-wearing color.

Silk Road is described, as seen above, as a metallic bronzed copper. This is very accurate but at the same time I couldn’t stop thinking of it as a yummy chocolate bronze even though I don’t think that description even makes a whole lot of sense. I love it and wouldn’t be surprised if I went through my entire cute little bottle this fall!

The mini lacquers retail for $10. I purchased mine online at Neiman Marcus and Le Metier de Beaute is also available at Bergdorf Goodman and select Nordstrom.
