Estee Lauder Beyond Black & Metal Mania Nail Lacquer Collections for Fall 2012

Estée Lauder and Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux introduce NEW Pure Color Nail Lacquer Beyond Black and Metal Mania Collections – two mini-shade statements that evoke the seduction, beauty and fantasy of the City of Lights at night. This dramatic palette of intriguing shades, textures and finishes expresses confident style and attitude with unprecedented color and impact.

“When creating this collection,” said Pecheux, “I wanted to capture the intensity and naughty side of Paris when it truly comes alive…at night!” NEW Pure Color Nail Lacquer Beyond Black and Metal Mania Collections include smoldering and amplified hues that capture the raw energy and sexiness of the City of Lights under a dark Parisian sky. Beyond Black is defined by five deep shades that saturate nails in rich and dramatic color, capturing the allure of the Parisian Femme Fatale. Metal Mania dresses nails in glam glitters for a modern metallic finish, enticing women to experiment, with daring effect.

  1. Estee Lauder always seems to come out with such beautiful, chic nail polish shades–but honestly, I’ve never purchased any of them (despite being tempted to) because they come with such little product. For $20, it’s a little ridiculous in my opinion

    The nail polishes look great but I’ll skip, I have around 78 nail polishes I’ll take a break ! I very often keep them for 3-4 years but metallic polishes well I have the Essie matte ones, I do have 2 EL polishes I must say I prefer the packaging to the nail polish itself. I purchased so many this year that I simply have to stop ! Tom Pecheux did a very good job with the collections in general, including those nail polishes but I’ll just take a look when they will be launched here, without purchasing !

    i can hear this polishes screaming my name….sigh. between this, china glaze’s bohemian collection, and the nars fall nail lacquers. I’m gonna be one broke girl. Time to start saving up

  4. I like the idea and the story behind this collection. Aaaah Paris… ;-) 
    These colors are not for me, though. Too deep and rich.

  7. Some of these shades look stunning, I can’t wait to see swatches!

  8. That green looks gorgeous. Can’t wait for the swatches, but at this price point I’m going to have to REALLY love it to buy it!
