As much as I love nail art, sometimes I just want a classic pure red nail.
Enter Estée Lauder Pure Colour Nail Lacquer. They’ve recently expanded their range of colours and I’m in love with the reds. With names like Love Bite, Le Smoking and Fallen Angel there’s a shade of red to suit every skin tone.
Love Bite is a slightly pinky red, Le Smoking a classic bright red, Fallen Angel (seen below) a blood red and Beautiful Liar a less intense version of Le Smoking. To help the colour last, I started with Cosmetics a la Carte Ridge Filler and Base Coat (£15) – aka foundation for nails – applied two coats of Fallen Angel followed by Barry M All in One basecoat, topcoat and nail hardener (£2.99).
Three days in, there are no chips or cracks. That’s quite a feat considering how often my hands are in water.
If you’re after a good selection of reds, I recommend Estée Lauder Pure Colour Nail Lacquer.
