Yves Saint Laurent Bleu Celadon 50

Hello all,

Today I have a swatch of one of the two nail polishes from the Summer Collection Blues Lumieres by Yves Saint Laurent. The shade is #50 – Bleu Celadon. It is a light blue, inclining more towards greyish undertone, and it is not so much the typical “baby” blue. It look more like a dried blue color, not bold, but hidden with elegant touch of grey. At first when I saw the first swatches of it in some blogs I thought- oh, no, another boring light blue. But then I reconsidered it, and decided to buy it, after all a girl can never have too many nail polishes, plus I am usually a sucker for pink, blue and green!

Anyways, the application was amazing, it went smooth like a butter, and with the wide, kinda “ergonomic” brush, the chance of spilling out of the nail bed while applying the nail polish is limited almost to zero. It dries very fast, it is a 2 coater, but on the swatches you see 3 coats, as this is the amount I usually apply. ImageImageImage

After I put the Bleu Celadon on my nails, I decided to go through my stash and see if I have anything similar to it. And what a surprise- I didn’t have anything! The closest in the bottle looks like to be Barry M Blue Moon, but it has a blue shimmer. Color Club Take Me To Your Chateau 878 is visibly a lighter shade of blue, almost chalkboard blue. Sation Jock Juggler is darker, with dark blue shimmer, same goes for Chanel Coco Blue.


My verdict- a beautiful subtle light blue color, perfect for the summer, and for the nail polish maniacs and collectors. I do not regret buying it!
