Estee Lauder Black Turquoise: An Unusually UnSparkly NOTD!


For once in this seemingly never-ending run up to Christmas I’m not sporting glitter on my nails and have quite fallen for this moody little number. Black Turquoise by Estee Lauder is actually part of their summer release, the Pure Colour Vivid Shine collection, and I’m afraid it was a limited edition – soz!

Bottom right: my top and bottom coats of choice these days, Sally Hansen Complete Care 4-in-1 and Seche Vite

It didn’t get much wear from me till the weather turned cooler but I wore it a lot throughout the autumn months. It applies a much darker and deeper shade of blackened blue than it looks in the bottle and it goes on nice and smooth. Weartime’s decent, too – I have a couple of Lauder polishes now and they’ve been consistently good. Spendy, though, at €20 a pop.

Have you tried any of the polishes from this brand? What are you loving on your nails these days?

That's a gorgeous colour, I'm big into the darker polishes in Winter too, Christmas be damned! I always think about getting one of the EL polishes but always talk myself out of it cause of the price! Will definitely take another look though :) xx

Your nails are beautiful as well darling. Shades of blue are my favourite to wear during the cold season.

Thanks to everyone for the lovely comments on my nails but it's all down to the polish, honest! They're a bit raggedy underneath :)
