NOTD: Estée Lauder Smoked Chrome ~ Pure Color Collection

Posted on: August 22, 2013

Smoked Chrome by Estée Lauder is a stunningly beautiful nail polish, as are all Estée Lauder polish, IMO. Just look at the bottle, it’s like a little ice cube filled with glorious polish like no other. Complete coverage with 1 coat, the formula self levels. I thought I’d have to go in with Seche-Vite to get rid of the brush strokes that are inevitable with a metallic polish, but once dry, voila, no brush strokes that I can see. I did not add a top coat. I used Nail Envy Matte as my base coat.

Smoked Chrome can be found where ever Estée Lauder is sold. I bought mine at Nordstrom for $20. Estée Lauder has a Mad Men Collection out right now and that polish sells for $24, all the rest of the EL polish are $20. I love my Estée Lauder nail polishes. The problem is, they are too pretty to wear. I know that sounds ridiculous but I feel the same way about the Ciate Manicure Advent Calendar that was given to me as a gift. I feel that way about most of my CHANEL polish as well. I’m just gonna have to get over it and start wearing these gorgeous nail polishes in my collection. If anything happened to me, the kids would sell them all at a yard sale for a nickel each.
Okay I’m getting off the subject, let’s take one more look at the gamorgeness ( Yes, I made up a new word) of this polish!


💅 As a,ways, thanks for stopping by!

I like this color a lot. Maybe too much….. I will put it on my wish list. 🙂


I hate to tell you but I am returning this one. It is so much like Revlon Carbonite, Chanel’s black pearl, OPI nein, nein, okay fine and live and let die, but it was really closest to wet n wild Disturbia. So save $17 and get the WnW one. If I can find my swatch picof disturb jail post it, but they are almost identical. Sorry, but hopefully you saved so e money and can buy more polish! Yay!

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
