I don’t know of a woman who does not enjoy being pampered and having her nails done! A trip to the spa is definitely the height of all things glam, so you can imagine my excitement when I received an invite from Estée Lauder to share in the launch of their Pure Colour Nail Lacquer range and get first-hand experience in their latest nail trends.
Upon arrival at Polish Nail Spa in Parkwood, Johannesburg, we were welcomed with light snacks and indulged in delicious treats while being given a mini beauty tutorial on what Estée Lauder has in store for eyes, lips and nails this Spring. To add to this I had the pleasure of sharing the day with popular musician Louise Carver and media personality Melanie Bala. You can’t possibly imagine the Cheshire cat smile on my face when I met these amazing women, both whom are Estée Lauder SA ambassadors.
Inspired by the evening ambience that can be felt in the city of Paris at night, this Spring Estée Lauder and Creative Makeup director, Tom Pecheux dare you to play in a world of bold, luminous and impactful colour with new Pure Colour Vivid Shine – the latest wave of shades that dazzle nails with sparkling shine and chromatic colour. Using the latest trend of nail pairing – combining two or more complementary shades - the look of the day was the ever popular “Ring of Fire” as can be seen on the runway and well-known publications. The Ring of fire consists of painting nails using a fiery colour on your ring finger alone (known as the ‘accent nail’), whilst painting the rest of your fingers using an equally bright or plum colour.
Apart from having a relaxing & glamorous morning, being served by the ultra-friendly staff at Polish Nail Spa, and conversing with the cheerful and sincere Louise Carver and Melanie Bala – I enjoyed playing with the spectrum of modern shades, textures and unprecedented colour of the Pure Colour Nail Lacquer range. Thanks to the True Vision™ Technology, these high-performance nail lacquers deliver lustrous, never-before-seen shine and my nail colour has lasted weeks after its application. All in all, my day was nothing short of absolutely fabulous!
