Finding the right red is like finding the right man; on one hand they’re all the same but also extremely different. Eventually one will find one that suits you the best!
With that in mind (or maybe not!) Estee Lauder has released five red tones of pure colour nail polishes for winter 2012.
From left to right: Fallen Angel, Love Bite, Le Smoking, Pure Red and Beautiful Liar.
They say: The luscious red tones in NEW Pure Color Nail Lacquer Red Hautes Collection drench nails in highly pigmented color that make the perfect statement no matter what the occasion. “There are five types of red to answer every desire.” saysTom Pecheux “There are day reds and there are night reds.”
I have swatted 3 of these reds!
They are Beautiful Liar, Love Bite and Le Smoking!
Do excuse the shorter nail – I broke it trying to open a box with my bare hands! D’oh!
I got the following with just ONE coat. I was very impressed with the pigmentation of these nail polishes – they are so easy to apply and they were touch dry pretty quickly too.
I found Beautiful Liar and Le Smoking quite similar on but I’d say Beautiful Liar is slightly lighter and has a pinkness to it where as Le Smoking is a very true cherry red. Love Bite is a darker deep wine berry red. My favourite of the 3 is Le Smoking, although I’d say all of the reds are wearable, especially at Christmas, yo!
On Christmas Day I’ll most likely wear Le Smoking with Urban Outfitters Meteor Shower (gold shards) on top!
