First Post: Estee Lauder Surreal Violet!

I've been toying with the idea of starting a nail polish blog for a while now, and I finally decided to give it a shot! If nothing else, this will at least give me a place to compile all my photos. I still have a lot to learn about application and taking photos, but hopefully you'll see some improvement as I continue to post!

As you might have guessed, today's post deals with Estee Lauder Surreal Violet. 

I'm not a fan of the size and price of Estee Lauder polish. 0.3 oz for $18? Seriously? I have to admit though, Surreal Violet is amazing. It's a really nice, understated neutral with amber shimmer. On me, it turns into a purple-ish beige.

The formula is decent, but it's definitely a 3-coater. I know a lot of people hate the wide brushes present in Dior and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polish, but the brush on Estee Lauder polish makes application a lot easier for me.
