NOTD - Estee Lauder 'Insatiable'

Greetings my lovely ones! Hope you're all having a tip top weekend!

Now as much as I absolutely LOVE, my glitter, my sparkle, my holos & duochromes on thy nails, a fact that is quite obvious in the majority of the NOTD's blogged on here, I also get moments when I actually want to tone things down a tad & go for a nice simple neutral block of colour on the nails...so when one such moment arose again I decided to reach for a polish that has been on my 'must try' list for a while, Estee Lauder's Insatiable...



I picked this little beauty up when I purchased the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation a while back at a time where there was one of those 'free gift' offers going on. For the free gift, two purchases were needed & this lovely looking polish, which is my first by Estee Lauder was my other one. I definitely see Estee Lauder as one of the more extravagant high street brands so was excited to try & see how the polish would fare!

Insatiable is one of those divine purple-y grey or 'greige' type of shades, I really do adore these type of colours, perfect for creating a simple & sophisticated looking manicure. At first glance it actually appears more lilac toned in the bottle doesn't it? However the colour transcends to a much deeper grey with subtle purple tones, quite unique, I just love it.



The consistency of the polish was thick but not troublesome & applied very nicely, this was two coats to get a nice opacity. It dried in good time as well to a lovely glossy finish. And I just adore the packaging of Estee Lauder polishes, they remind me of ice cubes, so pretty & elegant!


So overall I'm pretty happy with my first Estee Lauder polish experience! Though at £14.50 a pop, granted they are not exactly within the cheaper range of polishes out there, but the formula is lovely, of good quality & I love the simple elegance of the shade, I don't own anything like it...& did I mention how cute I think the ice cube like bottles are?

Thanks for reading dolls! Have you tried Estee Lauder polishes?

Lotsa love to ya!

  1. Bloody hell, how expensive is this stuff?! At least you got it as a free gift from the folks at EL.

    The colour is just LARVELY. A sort of greige (did I spell that right?) with a hint of purple-ness to it.

    ILY!
