Another EL winner - Estee Lauder Molten Lava


Another Estee Lauder polish for you today...I've been really enjoying the brand as of late. This one is Molten Lava. A gorgeous dirgy plum with subtle coppery shimmer. (Subtle as in apparent but fine and not overly abundant...not subtle as in Chanel's not-at-all-visible version of subtle.)



Molten Lava is right up my alley! It's dark but not ultra dark. It's unique, but neutral. Color me happy! I actually love how this pairs with one of my favourite eye makeup looks - both have plummy/gold tones that I love, especially for fall. (If you want to see the eye look, check out my little makeup blog here.)

Is there a brand you've recently changed your mind about? I used to think EL was an "old lady" brand, but I can feel my mindset being altered...

I think my image of EL started changing when Wicked Green was released a couple of years ago. I went on a binge this month and bought EL Blackened Turquoise, Bete Noir, Smashed, Blue Blood, Viper, and Black Plum...They're not all the most unique colors, but they sure are shiny! I was craving a green with a bit of black and just a tinge of brown; Viper hit the spot, it was the exact color I was dreaming of. Of course, I couldn't resist the others cuz I am a polish freak.

Deborah - Love. Varnish, chocolate and more... said...

What a wonderful color! It's very pretty.

@Nailderella - They have really picked up their game huh?

@Danisha - I so agree.

@A Girl - Do it! You won't be sorry :)

@Glowstars - Those both look gorgeous as well...so tempting.

@Mel - I think that's a sign that you need to finally give it and get it on your nails! Let me know if you do...

@Lacquerice - Me too! I usually skip right on by that counter...

@Jacqui - I have more to come too...eeeekk!!

@Nina - I agree :)

@The Manicurette - It was available on the Nordstroms website the last time I checked.

@WildHeart - Ooo you got a bunch of good ones. I think the formula is awesome so even if the colours aren't super unique, it's a good choice. Now you have me wanting Viper...

@Deborah - Thank you :)
