Yves Saint Laurent #3 Orange Afrique La Laque Couture Nail Lacquer Review

I absolutely love YSL beauty products. They are truly worth every penny  – from packaging, to the formulation – everything is bang on. In this post, I would be reviewing a nail lacquer from YSL in the shade “Orange Afrique.” Read on 🙂


$28 USD
Product Description:
A new generation nail lacquer that’s both elegant and practical is presented in a sleek elongated glass bottle imprinted with the timeless YSL logo. A pantheon of fashion-inspired shades, from subtle and natural to vibrant and dramatic provide a high-shine finish for an instant touch of glamour. Long wear formula with Chil Rose Oil strengthens, moisturizes and protects nails from chipping and cracking. Dries fast and applies evenly without streaking. La Laque Couture is equipped with a new custom-made brush that allows an easy and fast application. The nail lacquer perfectly adheres to the brush that pulls the drop instead of pushing it for a flawless and intense result.


My Experience with Yves Saint Laurent #3 Orange Afrique La Laque Couture Nail Lacquer:

The packaging of YSL nail lacquer is just stunning. It comes in a glass rectangle casing with golden top with the YSL logo embossed on it. The shade name is printed on the front of the bottle and even on the bottom.


When you remove the cap, there is a black twist up cap with the applicator attached to it. The applicator brush is small and rounded on the edge which makes application so easy and precise.



The shade “Orange Afrique” is a vivid orange shade. It is pigmented, offers a great wear with fabulous coverage that lasts for a good whole week. I found the small flat applicator brush with rounded edges ideal, it gives applies the right amount of product and goes on smoothly.




The color does not apply patchy and doesn’t get gummy with time. I have had Orange Afrique for three years now and the polish is still smooth and fluid. The finish of this nail lacquer is just breathtaking. It has a beautiful shine with amazing colour selection.
