La Couleur Couture 1968

Today I want to show you the last of my La Couleur Couture polishes I currently own: 1968 (as I type this 1945 - the bright red is on its way to me)

the above two pictures are taken indoors in daylight, the below pictures outdoors in the shade

I applied one thin and two medium thick coats of La Couleur Couture 1968. It is a while since I had to admit this here, but the formula was really tricky for me to work with. While in the beginning it appears nice and creamy it is not very pigmented and the first coat went on VERY streaky. The second and third coat applied better but unfortunately the polish is not really selfleveling. I even swatched it twice since the first attempt turned out simply bad. 

Final thoughts: Patience is a virtue and if you take the time to do the application nice and slowly 1968 pays you back by being a beautifully light jade green with very soft turquoise shimmer. I repeatedly read that La Couleur Couture 1968 can look frosty but I frankly could not detect any frostiness - just beautiful very soft shimmer. So despite the challenging application, La Couleur Couture 1968 gets thumbs up for its uniqueness!!!

I ordered La Couleur Couture 1968 with Harlow & Co.

I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!


  1. Very pretty color. Too bad the formula is a pain:(

    1. Hi Essie, yes the formula is a true bummer. But the color sort of makes up for it - let's see when I will reach for it again ;-)

  2. Sorry to hear about the tricky formula. It's still very gorgeous none-the-less! :-)
