Just a friendly reminder…

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 3 - 2010

…you kinda need this:

Estee Lauder’s Surreal Violet Nail Polish from the new Blue Dahlia collection is now available to purchase.  It’s a limited edition shade and a beautiful late summer/fall companion to Chanel’s eagerly anticipated Paradoxal.

Surreal Violet is priced at £12, and I’m just as in love with it today as I was back in June.  A cracking shade.

    *whispers* I think this looks nicer than Paradoxical.

    Hi
    I love this shade, i was expecting it to be bright but its soft and muted.

    I gotta have it now!

  5. Jenni says:

    It’s WAY better than Paradoxal and much easier to get hold of.

  6. Andrea says:

    This is lovely, but are the bottles as small as they look? How many mls?

    Also, do you know when Paradoxal comes out? Thank you.

    Oh god, this might satisfy my pale purplish-grey polish wants!
    After seeing this mag cover, that’s all I want.
