NOTD ~ Estée Lauder Pure Color

Posted on: March 12, 2012

This is Estée Lauder Pure Color in Rosa Rosa. I am in love with this color. I took this picture yesterday afternoon when the sun came out. The sun came out for about 15 minutes yesterday.
This is how the day started

I can’t put my finger on why I like this color, but I do. It is pink, coral and dare I say red, all in one. Now, I know I have said over and over I do not like red fingernail polish and I know I have said over and over you will never see me with red fingernail polish. Is this really red? You tell me.

Yea, I’d say that is red. But I like it. So I take back all my rumblings about the use of red fingernail polish.

These are the prettiest little bottles of polish I own. They are like little ice cubes with color in the center. Molten Lava is on the left and it is as dark as it looks, almost black. In the bottle it has different shimmers. I thought it would be more like Revlon Naughty (which used to be called Perplexed and is an exact dupe for CHANEL Paradoxial). But it comes out black. I’m not sure but I may be returning this one.
Please check out my You Tube channel here:My You Tube channelfor more info on this polish. And I wanted to remind you of the ONE PENNY promotion from Julep. As far as I know it is still on. Use the code COLOR2012 or MARCHINTRO to receive the entire box for one penny. Go to Julep here:Julep Maven program
Tell me, what do you think of the Rosa Rosa? Do you like as much as I do? Do you think I should reverse my entire stance against red fingernail polish?
Update: I forgot to say the polish is $18, .3 fluid ounces. As a point of reference CHANEL polishes are .4 fluid ounce, OPI are .5 and Julep is .27 fluid ounce. These were bought at Macy’s. I’m sure Nordstrom, Barney’s and where ever Estée Lauder is sold would have them.

I think these are quite beautiful and actually I prefer the darker one to the red one. I have yet to purchase an EL polish

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
