Vintage Challenge Red: YSL Rouge désir


Hello Lovelies! Today I'm exceptionally doing 2 challenges! So right now I'm presenting you my choice for the wonderful Vintage Challenge. Tuesday is for a red polish, and I have a very fabulous red, my hubby's favourite,YSL La laque n°144 Rouge désir, from the Limited edition "Love Collection". I got this one in December 2007, so I guess it could have been a collection for the holidays, but I couldn't swear for that.


I wear this one for Valentine's day, almost every year since I got it because my hubby loves it. It's a gorgeous medium red with tons of shimmer and golden microglitter, that's not really visible in the nail, but gives it that illusion of depth! and looks like nails are coated with candy! So yummy!

This shade has that faculty of looking differently under different lightings, but always manages to look gorgeous! No matter what I can't get a bad picture of it, lol!
Let me know what you think about this "oldie" and whether you have this one, otherwise, which are your "oldie" red polishes? Would love to know!
Stay tuned for the Tri-polish Challenge later today!
Love,
Nati

  1. Salut Nati - ohhhhh I am floored - what a stunner!!! And so appropriate for Valentines Day <3!!!! I came to really appreciate "deep" shimmer as it exactly holds this magic to alter a polish in different lighting without being in your face - it works in the background so to say!!! I will be live in a couple of minutes with "my" red!!! Bisous xxx

  2. Che bello! È molto elegante e ti sta anche bene. I microglitter arancio gli danno profondità ma sono anche molto discreti che quasi sembra non ci siano. ;)

    1. Grazie per il tuo commento Francine! In fatti sembra che non ci siano, sfortunatamente queste foto sono state riprese per San Valentino, un giorno grigio di febbraio, dunque con pochissima luce :(

  3. Gorgeous colour and perfect for Valentine's Day! I wish I could say my man had a favourite but he mostly despairs of the whole nail polish world!

    1. Hi Cali369! long time no see! Oh, don't think my hubby is that much into nail polish... he just "prefers" red like when I paint my nails in red he goes "There's a nice colour!" as you could read in his mind the following "and not all the crazy stuff you usually dip your nails in", LOL!

    2. La verdad que no,las escuelas dicen que no tienen puestos disponibles para profesoras de idiomas. Y se rumorea que escogen a quienes les da la gana. Pues a mi me exigen el título master mientras tengo el bachelor. Y por ley tengo derecho a muchos más niveles escolares de los que dicen ellos que les dan a un bachelor. Sé de personas que tienen el mismo Bachelor que yo y les ofrecen buenas escuelas y niveles porque tienen palanca (amiguismo y dinero). Yo sigo luchando en la Guardería que es después de que termina las escuelas a las 12 del mediodía. Pero deseo algo más para llenar mis mañanas ya que la entrada no es muy alta y deseo hacer algo digno de mi Bachelor.
