The Shimmering Summer Topcoat Of Our Dreams... Or Is It?

Okay, we admit it: when it comes to making our nails the prettiest of them all, there's probably nothing we won't at least want to try. So, obviously, we jumped at the chance to test out La Laque Couture Tie & Dye Top Coat Collection by Yves Saint Laurent, which claims to add an elegant sparkle to a manicure. Plus, if you apply it just so, it's supposed to create a gradient of shimmer intensity. We can't think of anything more perfect for the start of summer.

Ever the nail adventurer, our senior beauty editor Megan agreed to test this one out (it was so hard to convince her to try out a shimmering coral nail polish). Watch as she applies this super cool topcoat, and check out her verdict. Is this product really the shimmering manicure magic it claims to be? We sure hope so.
This top coat comes in four shades, three of which are already sold out. Pop Coat is still available, so if you're into it, don't second-guess yourself and just get it, before it's a week from now and you're re-watching this video in a sea of regret.
Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture Tie & Dye Top Coat Collection in Pop Coat, $25, available at Yves Saint Laurent.
