Guerlain La Laquer Couleur #861 Sulfurous from Crazy Paris Holiday 2013 Collection, Swatch & Comparison

Do you remember the post back in July, when I was reviewing Guerlain La Lacquer in Madame Batifole from Fall 2013 collection, I have written this "The only thing I keep asking myself is, will the nail polishes in Guerlain's line break free of the lip products and will eventually also have unique interesting shades"

Well friends, the time has come! Let me introduce you to Sulfurous...

Guerlain La Laquer Couleur #861 Sulfurous
Yes, it is the first nail polish which doesn't go matchy matchy with one of their lip products and indeed a nice interesting shade a chameleon. One moment you are like I know this is a deep plum, then next moment you change your mind and identify it as a grayish brown, but there are times you are unsure if it would make a better bluish anthracite.

The formula is nice and opaque with two coats. Once light shines upon your nails, you will see subtle multi color reflexions. Sulfurous has a metallic finish but I didn't have problem with brush strokes.

After I applied the polish on to the nails, I knew I didn't have any dupes. I could see though that this shades is more Dior than Chanel, if you know what I mean. So here comes three close Dior polishes from my stash for a comparison.

It turns out Dior #782 Silver Purple is more gray, Dior #972 (or Dior Shadow which is very close to that one) is more plum/red, Dior #886 New World Purple is more brown and warm.

Final thoughts: Yes to free La Laquer! Don't let lipsticks suppress nail polishes! Viva Revolution ;-) Interesting chameleon shade, which is appropriate for fall but I don't think it is necessarily for holidays. Therefore there is also an ultra violet top coat in the collection to give it a holiday glow.

Have you checked Sulfurous out? Did you like it?

  2. I knowww right? I love the Guerlain formula, but I didn't plan to purchase more shades because none of them seems unique enough. This one is a total winner! I bet it's lovely on the toes as well :)

  3. That's quite an unique shade idd. I do feel the Guerlain vibe through it but it's nice to see something different apart from all those pinks and reds ^^.

    1. Hi Teri,
      absolutely. I like the reds and pinks but may get boring without interesting unidentified shades in between ;-)

  4. It's pretty but just not unique enough for me to spend the money on it!
