This Christmas Estee Lauder are bringing us a glorious and appropriately named Pure Color Extravagant Collection. The shades are berries, golds and reds and I’m delighted to be able to show you the nail varnish from the collection. The entire collection is limited edition and available on Estee lauder counters as of now!
Extravagant Night (£12) is one of the two polishes in this collection and I think I’m going to find it pretty hard to describe! In the bottle it’s at first glance a dark purple with very fine silver glitter. On closer inspection it also apears to have a browny tinge to it and a little hint of goldy-green dochrome.
On the nails there is no sign at all of any duochrome and it’s the strangest colour!It’s actually beautiful but as I say, very hard to describe. In some lights it’s a pretty purple polish with silver sparkles. In other light’s it’s got more than a hint of brown to it, with silver sparkles. And then when the light hits it really well you see a whole range of silver different purple shimmers sparkling at you. So, I ended up taking LOADS of pictures and I’ll leave you with a few of them to try and demonstrate some of the ways this appears on the nail. Some of the pics are blurry which, whilst not intentional, do show the dimensions to good effect.

And saving the best til last….under bright electric light:
It’s clearly a chameleon of a colour. The wear is average on it, not brilliant, not awful and it applies like a dream.
A gorgeous colour for nights out and parties… what do you think?
