Hello there lovely readers! 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!
