Time has flown by so quickly this year and it's already September! While I have been hanging on to my Summer sundress, I have already started wearing Fall nail colours (as seen in here and here). This week, I'm rocking the Yves Saint Laurent La Lacque Couture Les Grainés in #53 Taupe Grain (CA $27 / US $25) from their Cuirs Fétiches Collection for Fall 2014.
The Le Grainés range of nail polishes comes in two shades—Taupe Grain and Bleu Galuchat. They have this texturized effects which has a grainy matte finish. It looks like those gritty coarse plastic nail filer. It also resemble the looks of leather, which fits with their Fall collection nicely. I like that it's fast drying and you only need up to 2 coats (if you're short on time, you can even get away with just 1 coat). I don't apply a top coat because I like the matte finish with the grainy texture. And since it's texturized, mistakes/smudges can be easily covered by topping the spot with more nail polishes and it will blend in perfectly. Ingenious!
