It's called luxury because it's luxurious. True Story.

What’s new for Estée Lauder Spring 2015? Three new Pure Color nail polish shades! And you know what? They’re so lovely.

Estée Lauder Spring 2015: Pink Dragon, Blossom Pink, Inspiring

I still don’t quite know why Estee Lauder polishes don’t make big ole splashes. They’re a superior quality product. It’s right up there with the luxury brands for a reason… It’s great polish. The brush, formula, coverage, pigments… everything – it’s really the whole package right there in that beautiful bottle. I feel lucky to be able to use polishes as splendid as these.

Estee Lauder Spring 2015: Pink Dragon Pure Color N8

Above: Estée Lauder Spring 2015 - Pink Dragon in two lovely coats. There's a very, very subtle shimmer in there that barely translates to the nail. It lightens and brightens though and it makes this into one of the best pinks I've used in a long, long time.

Estee Lauder Spring 2015: Blossom Bright Pure Color P0

Above: Estée Lauder Spring 2015 – Blossom Bright. Again, two incredibly easy coats, again with subtle shimmer. That nearly invisible shimmer gives real depth of colour. There's no top coat on any of these so you can see how shiny it is all by itself.

Estee Lauder Spring 2015: Inspiring Pure Color P2

Above: Estée Lauder Spring 2015 – Inspiring. I think the shimmer is most visible in this almost-Marsala shade of burgundy rose. I don't often choose shades like these for myself, but I look at this and think... wow. It's the perfect balance of light and rich in one delightful bottle.

What else can I tell you about a perfect bottle of polish? Well, I can tell you it’s available at along with a whole whack of stupendous core shades. I love this stuff. It’s always such a treat to play in it.
