I almost didn’t swatch Le Metier de Beaute’s Nordstrom anniversary set. Neither of my two Nordstroms has an LMdB counter, but I spied Le Metier’s boxed set high on a shelf in one store’s tent-o-wonder.
There wasn’t a tester, so I asked if one could be made… My eternal gratitude goes to whichever manager okayed that move, because if I hadn’t swatched, I probably would have missed out on one of the best items in this year’s anniversary sale.
Rock ‘n’ Romance contains four polishes, and is $25.
Heat of the Night is burgundy shimmer. True Romance is a rose-blonde-taupe frost (a cousin, I think, to Chanel Trapeze and Quartz). CHROME PASSION! I die — it’s a charcoal grey holo! If you have been pining for Nicole Season’s Grey-tings, stop what you are doing and order this set. Midnight Rendezvous is also gorgeous. It’s a dark, sea-at-night, deep sapphire blue with blue and silver shimmers.
Le Metier polishes are regularly $15 each*, and the bottles in this set are actually full size (LMdB polishes are always 0.14 oz, or 4 ml).
I think missing out could result in deep (and possibly expensive) regrets. Even if your store doesn’t carry Le Metier, they should have Rock ‘n’ Romance. And if they DON’T, they can order it and ship it to you for free because it’s $25.
Of course, if you don’t have a store near you and you want to help out the nice counters who let me swatch, call Kenitha at 972-702-0055.
If you don’t have a Nordstrom account, you’ll have to wait ’til July 15th to buy.
* EDIT: LMdB nail polishes were $15. Apparently (with the introduction of the summer collection?) they’ve gone down to $10, regular price.
