Estee Lauder – Surreal Violet NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 13 - 2010

Sometimes… you come across something a little bit special in the nail polish world.

Surreal Violet from the upcoming Estee Lauder Pure Color Collection is a little bit special.

I’ll admit, I’m biased.  I love me a bit of greige… I also love me a bit of dirty purple… combining the 2 tips me over the edge.

But then… THEN… throw in a generous amount of amber shimmer that sparkles like fireflies when sunlight hits it, and you’ve got me foaming at the mouth.  2 coats to achieve opacity, the sample I received glides on beautifully with no problems to note.  I finished with a quick-dry top coat to really enhance the shimmer contained within.

Surreal Violet is a limited edition shade from the upcoming Estee Lauder Pure Color collection by Tom Pecheux which is due to be released in the UK in August.

The polish will retail at £12/€17 and frankly, you need it.

  3. Oh lordy, that is beautiful! I’m a taupe and purple fiend so this is an absolute dream. I think I need to set myself a reminder for August.

    I’m not normally one for greige nails at all, unless they have more purple or something in them, like OPI’s Parlez Vous OPI?, which I adore. This however, is fantastic, what an unusual colour! I will be on tenterhooks until August then! Thanks for this post!x

    I have to say, when I saw the little pic that comes up in my Blogger Reading List I though “ew, I’m not going to like this”. But damn you, not only do I now really, really like this, I now really, really want to buy it.
    £12 is cheaper than Illamasqua…hmmm.

    My word that is stunning! I’m not usually a fan of shimmers but that is so unusual and so so chic. Love it!

  15. Hmm. Think it’s doable into Autumn???

  16. Conne says:

    i need that polish! I hope it’s not just a UK only color =D

  17. I already splurged on Chanel’s Paradoxal and wondered how you think it compares to the Surreal Violet, is there a big difference between the 2 shades? In other words, can you help me justify owning them both! (I never take much persuading when it comes to nail varnish, it’s a big weakness of mine)
