Estée Lauder Pure Color Nails ~ Purple Passion

Purple Passion from Estée Lauder was part of a 4 piece ‘Coffret’ I purchased from Nordstrom for just under $21. I’ve had this polish on for less than 24 hours, no I have not been digging ditches or any manual labor except for a couple of loads of laundry and grocery shopping. Yet my nails look like heck.
Estée Lauder nail polish is one of my favorite brands, the full size bottles sell for $21 (.3 oz). The formula is creamy and smooth. Usually full coverage is achieved with one coat. The bottle is adorable, the brush is great and the colors are different. Smashed from EL was named by Allure magazine as the best nail color of 2012. I tell you all this so you can understand my disappointment with the performance of this polish. 😧

Disappointment aside I am happy with this set of 4 polishes. The bottles are small, .17 oz but the brush is still normal. The 4 colors are Smashed, Black Plum, Purple Passion and So Vain. Priced at just over $5 for each bottle makes this a great buy. If Nordstrom offers this set again, I will most definetly buy.

FINAL THOUGHTS: for Purple Passion from Estée Lauder ? I really like this color. The formula was very rich and smooth, easy to apply. I ‘wrapped’ my tips as I planned on wearing for a few days, but even so you can see the tip wear in less than 24 hours is unacceptable. I know from past experience that the Estée Lauder brand is better than this and I realize that polish performs different on different people. I would not let this deter you from trying this polish, especially with this little kit. 😍

🌷 Today was a gorgeous day, dare I say spring like? (We will probably have snow tomorrow). I noticed my daffodils are coming up and there are some buds on my rosé bushes. 🌸. It won’t be long now! I hope you are having perfect days now and always!

💅. As always, thanks for stopping by!

I need to take a look at EL polishes next time I’m at the mall.Linda xo

It’s frustrating to get such wear on the tips. I agree, Estee Lauder makes great polish. Maybe this is just a weird bottle. I just love the little bottles E. L. puts out in sets. I have resisted picking up any new E. L. but may have to change my mind and give those minis a home.

After a full day outside chasing birds and squirrels, I love to take a nap with my bear!
Life is GOOD! Life is GREAT!

Love,
