No. 40 Extreme Purple, No.46 Poivre Noir and No. 45 Piment D'ailleurs

To get into the spirit of halloween, I wanted to go for a blood red shade and fortunately or unfortunately, I had the option of three varied shades to choose from.  I settled on the middle shade, Poivre Noir only because I was yet to actually wear that shade on my nails.

Poivre Noir and Extreme Purple are quite similar with Extreme Purple being a smidgin darker than Poivre Noir. I dont think I did a good job of picking that up with my photography so hopefully my little explanation to distinguish the difference you might not see visually from the pictures.

As you know, I cannot fault Yves Saint Laurent's nail varnish because it's quite simply one of the best in the world of nail varnish. They are always consistent in terms of its mixtures making for a smooth application taking away the need to layering on several coats before achieving the desired shade.

As always, I apply my base coat first before applying three coats of my chosen nail varnish shade and finally finishing things off with a top coat.

You can pick up Ysl's Poivre Noir nail varnish varnish from a number of retail outlets such and I picked mine up from Selfridges.
