YSL Bronze Pyrite is bronzey, goldy and pewtery. This is the definition of metallicky goodness. This polish is striking. Take a look:
YSL Bronze Pyrite was released in their Spring 2013 campaign. I purchased this with Jade Imperial, because I’m a sucker for the odd green polish (to be swatched soon). This is a metallic polish. It looks like foil on your nails without all the application issues (visible brushstrokes) of most metallic polishes.
I initially thought that this polish was quite dupe-able. But on closer inspection, the metallic sheen and almost antique patina colour to the polish makes it unique. I wasn’t in love at first sight with this one, like with some other polishes. I actually had a “meh” moment. I painted my nails and thought….well…..I don’t think I like it but I’m too lazy to take it off now so I’ll give it a days wear and see how I feel.
Well I wore it for a week. No chips. No edge wear. The colour looked the same as the day I painted them and that’s what makes this formula so fabulous. I do like this colour, I don’t adore it. I did have moments of nail polish remorse wearing it (those days where you look down at your nails and think, hmmmm, not sure about this colour). I even had a co-worker comment on how he wasn’t sure if he liked it either. Then he said he liked it. Then he said he wasn’t sure. That sums up exactly how I felt about this colour. I went through days where I thought exactly like that.
I would say this is an attention grabbing polish. It is metallic. It is scene-stealing. If you are in a strict corporate setting, you might want to save this for the weekend or for your toes.
I can’t fault the formula or the ‘little left of field’ colour selection. Those guys at YSL are spot on with their formula and colour palette.
