Hallo! It’s me again, and I have some absolutely lovely limited edition Estée Lauder polish to share with you today. You know I’m a big fan of Estee Lauder polish, right? Lemme tell you why…

The pigmentation they’ve stuffed in these Estee Lauder polish bottles is wicked-stellar. And then there’s the brush… I love the brush. It has squared-off bristles yet it's so flexible that if you apply the right amount of pressure, the polish goes exactly where you want it -- in just one coat. That’s right, for me, these are all One Coat Wonders*.

Lauder is calling this a collection of vibrant spring/summer hues, but I’m not sure I quite agree. It sort of has shades of summer and shades of fall but I’m not really seeing spring all up in here.

I’m also sure that if I dig through my horde I’ll find dupes BUT, I won’t find anything that matches the formula and OCW-ness* of these superb polishes.

I tell ya what, Lauder nail polish is a treat to use. It is. I use all kinds of lacquer formulas all the time, and when something like Lauder shows up in my inbox, I smile because I know it’s going to be easy to apply and it’s going to look perfect and stunning.

Seriously, this is one of my favorite brands of nail lacquer -- did you see the Estee Lauder Metallics post we did? Estee Lauder polish totally wins at OCW*. For real.

Limited Edition Pure Color Envy Estee Lauder polish ($25 each) is available now at Holt Renfrew and online at

*OCW denotes a One Coat Wonder – full coverage and zero visible nail lines in just. one. coat. Have you tried any of the Estee Lauder nail polishes? What do you think?
