One treat that I picked up at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview was Le Metier de Beaute’s Rock n Romance Nail Laquer Set ($25), a perfect fall wardrobe at a very tempting price.  Le Metier’s polishes are typically sold in tiny bottles that one has a hope of finishing in a single season, and normally sell for $10 each. At $25 for this set of four highly-wearable fall shades, this set is a must.

The set includes Midnight Rendevous, a deep metallic blue:

On nails:

As soft metallic gray called Chrome Passion, that turns into an unbelievably pretty holographic polish in full sun:

On nails (holla! we have a holo!)

One more because the holograph is so pretty:

A soft coppery fawn champagne, called True Romance (this reminds me of Chanel Quartz):

On nails:

A metallic red deep called Heat of the Night:

On nails:

Liz and I both thought that Heat of the Night could benefit from a dash of thinner, but otherwise the formula of all was excellent. Typically, the color was opaque in one or two coats, except for True Romance which is sheerer by its nature.

Bottom line: Love the colors, love the price, love the size.  Love the holographic metallic!  Do not miss this little treat!

  1. I need this set, so gorgeous!

  2. Those are so insanely gorgeous! Leave it to my beloved Le Metier de Beaute to knock it out of the park with this collection again.

  3. The beige…is that close to the new Chanel?

    • Yes, Polarbelle–similar vibe to Chanel Quartz. The LMBD is more coppery and a bit more sheer but the similar cashmere feeling.

  4. Oh My Goodness, these are to die for, amazing, gorgeous, beautiful…True Romance is not really my colour but other three are stunning and only $25. Would LOVE to have them!

  5. Gasp! These are stunning. Chrome Passion is DTF!

  6. I passed this collection by at Nordstroms the other day and I’m so glad you’ve swatched them. I saw it as I was passing through and the collection definitely caught my eye…but I didn’t know any info about them. Seeing this, I’ll definitely be putting this on my “to buy” list. Thanks!

  7. This is the most insanely gorgeous nail set. I can’t wait for mine to arrive. GORGEOUS photos as always!

  8. Absolutely gorgeous! I am green with envy as Le Metier de Beaute is not available in Australia..:(

  9. I love the holographic. when I wear holographic, it seems like I keep holding my nails in the light staring at them. chrome passion reminds me of that color club revvvolution.

    did you ever try the china glaze tronica collection? it didn’t have much holo.

  10. Thanks for sharing. This set definitely looks like a must-have! And not trying to be rude at all, but I love Chanel as much as the next gal, but I was getting worried that the reincarnated Cafe Makeup was a Chanel exclusive lol!

    • Hannah–well, it has been weeks since I’ve done anything that isn’t Chanel! That was quite a stretch of time–so many releases! :) Anyway, lucky for me I love their products!

  11. Just bought my set today and had to try it on when I got to the parking lot. Love them (even if the beige isn’t quite me)~!
