[NOTD] by C: Feeling girly with Estee Lauder - Thank you Beauty Heaven!



My thumb design is an odd one. I painted it exactly the same as my ring finger but then it was peeling and sliding off my thumb as it was too thick, so I peeled the entire layer off. Then I realised that the very bottom layer was not entirely dry and so it left a cool effect after I peeled it off. So to make it look less ugly, I added some glitter. Because glitter can fix any nail design right?

Products used:

Estee Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer  Narcissist
MUD  Golden Eyes
The Face Shop  Face It PK109



For today's NOTD (nail of the day), I am trying out the Estee Lauder nail lacquer I received as part of the runner up prize from Beauty Heaven. There was a nail competition on Instagram a while ago where you had to replicate a design set by Beauty Heaven, and I didn't get first prize but was pleasantly surprised to have come runner up! Here's the nail design that I did and came runner up with. 

The runner up prize for me consisted of one Estee Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer in Narcissit and one Estee Lauder Pure Color Stay-on Shadow Paint in Cosmic.



The Shadow Paint reminds me of the Maybelline Color Tattoo swatched here.

I am very thankful to Beauty Heaven for sending me these prizes. To be honest I don't usually wear a lot of girly pink nail polishes like the Narcissist but I wouldn't mind this one for Spring or Summer. I'm pleasantly surprised that I got an eye makeup product as well since I consider Estee Lauder as a high-end brand. How generous of them :) 

I hope you guys have a great week where ever you are!

Have you tried any high-end nail polishes?

Love, Court :)

  1. ooh I really like The Face Shop Face It polish! I just can't seem to keep my glitter polishes in good condition without them getting all hard and gloopy :( x

  2. That happens to me too :( what I do is, I put in a couple drops of polish thinner that I got from a beauty supplier store and mix it up. It helps to de-gloop them. Or altnatively you can add a few drops of polish remover ;) - Court

  5. Cool prizes! I would love to try those Shadow Paints - I'm a big fan of cream eyeshadows :) I really like that The Face Shop glitter as well.

    1. I've recently gotten into cream shadows and they last forever! I'll check out the face shop ones when I go to Korea (so much cheaper!)
