Estee Lauder Heavy Petals Collection

While it's certainly winter outside my window this morning, the spring makeup collections are hitting counters left right and centre this month. You've already seen the pretty-as-a-picture offerings from Dior and Chanel, but Estee Lauder are releasing a whole collection of spring nail shades this season.
While there are a few of the usual suspects in the line up when it comes to spring shades (baby pink and lilac... snore!) there are a few colours that make this little collection stand out to me. For a safer shade, the pale coral is really pretty, while the lime green is quite a risque choice for Lauder. My pick of the bunch however, has to be Dilettante. It's a pretty blue-green that reminds me of Essie's super popular Mint Candy Apple.

It looks much less green in the bottle than on the nails, and for some reason I couldn't quite capture the colour perfectly in these photos. Its a little more green in real life than it appears here, but none the less a gorgeous choice for spring time (or even to brighten up these dark winter days!)

I would thoroughly recommend checking out this pretty little collection. It's out now and the polishes are £14.50 each and as always with Lauder polishes, the packaging is to die for!

  10. From the first image you put in I liked Dilettante the best too. I agree that some of the others aren't exactly original for spring!

  17. Wow, such a great collection! I want to check them out.
    I do not own any of the Estee Lauder nailpolishes and was wandering: how is the quality? Do you need two or three coats of it to be opaque?

    1. The few shades I've tried have been really nice. Pretty average application but great staying power - I've had this on for 5 days at the moment and only have a few tiny chips (despite being outside playing in the snow all weekend!) :)

  41. I love a pastel polish, especially the pink, but Estee Lauder polishes are so overpriced when you can get more affordable ones that are better lasting! Great post
