Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Black Lapis and Black Bronze swatches!

My favourite part of the Yves Saint Laurent New Blacks collection was the polishes - so colourful and metallic, what's not to love!? Of course they aren't calling it "new blacks" for nothing - the colour in the bottle is deceiving, as you can see from my swatches below, they go on dark, almost black really with just a hint of the colour they represent. Am I disappointed? Maybe a little, I was envisioning more colour but I'm a fan of black nail polish to begin with so black with a kick is good with me too!
Black Lapis - I was actually expecting this to be purple from the picture in the original post but it's definitely blue - but a lot more blue in the bottle than on my fingers!
Black Bronze - very topaz looking in the bottle, dark on my fingers but the shimmer comes through quite nicely.
