Estée Lauder French Nudes Nails

IMG_1308 IMG_1316IMG_1321 IMG_1326 IMG_1329Get your notepads out ladies, it’s time to take note of a phrase you’re going to be hearing often – foundation for nails. It seems that the usual corals, emeralds and fruit hued lacquers we reach for during sunnier weather will have to take a backseat this season and let sophisticated nudes take all the glory.

Estée Lauder‘s main man and creative makeup director Tom Pecheux says this look is all about enhancing nails rather than making a big statement with colour. A nail polish that’s close in colour to your skin tone elongates and extends the fingers so it’s all about complementing what you already have. And as nude is never just one colour, it’s great to see that Estée Lauder has creamy cocoas, a milky beige and soft pink hues in their new Pure Colour Nail Lacquer French Nudes Collection*. The collection includes five gorgeous shades; Ballerina, Nudité, So Vain which I’m wearing pretty much daily, Diabolique and Bittersweet.

Not to mention they’re season and chip proof I might add (four days strong!) – you can wear them all year long. Estée Lauder have really hit the nail on the head with this one – pun intended ;)
