A Lauder lacquer is generally a Very Good Thing and I’m anticipating that the eight incoming in August’s Pure Colour The Metallics collection will pass muster too. Saturated with pearl pigments and aluminium platelets (no less), these are designed to be super-reflective.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Vivid Shine Nail Lacquer in Rose Gold, Midnight Metal, Chocolate Foil, Smoked Chrome, Steel Orchid,

At €20 each, there’ll be Rose Gold (middle), Midnight Metal (top pic), Chocolate Foil, Smoked Chrome, Steel Orchid, Brushed Gold (right), Chrome Violet (left) and Metallic Green.  

Psst: there’s also an amazing looking palette coming too. More on that shortly!
