NOTD: Estee Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer in Wicked Green

Disclosure: PR sample

Estee Lauder are releasing a whopping sixteen new shades of their Pure Color nail varnish in March, with eight permanent additions, and eight limited edition shades.  


The colour above, Wicked Green, is one of the limited edition colours, and it's absolutely gorgeous - a deep, rich green which looks almost army green in lower light, and absolutely emerald in brighter light conditions.  

It applies incredibly smoothly - the brush, whilst quite narrow, is excellent at stroking the colour over the nail, and the polish itself doesn't drag at all.  The opacity above took three coats, with the third coat being entirely superfluous unless you really, really hate any hint of a visible nail line.  The only problem I had with this colour was the tipwear - this photo was taken after one day.  Granted, I type pretty much all day, so tipwear does set in quickly for me as a rule - particularly on strong, opaque cream finishes like this.

If you love this colour, you'll find it at all Estee Lauder counters and online, where each bottle will cost you £14.
