Estee Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer Beyond Black Collection: Put To The Test

Posted: Updated:

We're all about the glam jewel-toned nails this fall, so we were really excited when I saw that Estee Lauder had a Beyond Black Collection of nail polishes out. Deep rich colours that were like black, but not -- it's a line we can get behind.

There are 5 colours in the collection: Caviar, Bete Noire, Blue Blood, Black Plum, and Viper.

Of all the shades, we didn’t have a favourite. Sadly, we were also disappointed by this nail formula. The polish didn’t go on dark enough, and, often, we were applying three coats of polish so it looked the way it did in the bottle.

The worst part is none of the colours really felt unique or overly different. Caviar is a standard grey, Black Plum is like Lincoln Park After Dark by OPI (which I wore non-stop years and years ago). Viper is an exception because it’s such a dark forest green, really an uber dark emerald -- it's very unusual.

We’ve never seen anything like it before -- it’s actually quite pretty. Still, sadly, we found it chipped sooner than it should have.

Each bottle costs $25.

Will you try the polish anyway?
