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.

  7. Emil says:

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