Estee Lauder Bete Noire reviewAs much as I love bright colours if I had to choose one favorite shade it would be dark. There is something infinitely elegant about almost black blues, greens and reds. Estee Lauder Bete Noire is much better than that. Between blue and purple shade it is so captivating, it became one of my favorite polishes from the first swatch. Bete Noire is one of the polishes from the Beyond Black Estee Lauder Pure Color nail polish collection. As Estee Lauder Creative Director Tom Pecheux said “When creating this collection I wanted to capture the intensity and naughty side of Paris when it truly comes alive… at night!”

Not sure about naughty, but INTENSE I think is the right word to describe this polish. Estee Lauder Bete Noire is more than just polish, it transforms your nails into a statement accessory that will add a touch of luxury to any evening or cocktail look. Personally, I think I’ve just met my perfect polish.

      Luxury polishes are like luxury shoes – they’re investment pieces but they are worth every cent!

      Yes, expensive polishes are in general pretty amazing. I forgot to add, these photos are – no top coat! it’s glossy enough by itself.

  • Wow this is gorgeous. It’s quite weird that I like to go with deep shades during this time of the year, but this is a beautiful royal purple color.

      I found that when choosing colour for nails I’m rather influenced by mood or occasion than season. Sometimes it’s nice to wear happy neons during dull winter months while black shades look very pretty on summer evenings. xx

    I was lucky enough to get this one for my birthday from my husband. He really likes it more than any other polish! Lucky me! It’s a dream to use too.
