Estee Lauder Extravagant Night Nail Lacquer
Estee Lauder Extravagant Night Nail Lacquer

Best of Fall: Extravagant Night

Estee Lauder Extravagant Night Nail Lacquer ($18.00 0.3 fl oz.) is a stunning deep dark purple wine base decked out with multi-colored flecks that range from deep fuchsia to violet to gold. Ahh! This was absolutely gorgeous from the first coat on (two coats shown). I don’t even know how to describe the way it looks, because it practically dances under bright lights (like flash), but it still retains its character and depth in natural light. It applies evenly, just like a normal shimmer polish tends to do, but the effect is so much more like a glitter–without the grittiness.

It’s sold out in a lot of places, but Macy’s still has it online! I wish it weren’t so expensive or else they put more in the bottle (0.3 fl. oz. is below average for the price point).

    It’s too expensive for me and not really a colour I would wear a lot.

  2. Sass

    I need this. Love EL polishes.

  3. Alannah

    Wow, that bottle looks TINY! It is a really pretty polish, though!

  4. Polly

    I love this.

    I’ve never ever used up any nail polish and usually left em dried out. Such a waste.

    So I think its amount is proper.

    Gel-liner, too, should give a lil amount and lower the price.

  5. Soso

    OPI makes the same color in their Designer Series called Mystery. Its $12.50 but I’m sure you can get it cheaper now bc it came out last year.

  6. trangaxtman

    i just ordered mine from macys,yay.

  7. Alison

    I couldn’t get mine to look that good in two coats. Kudos. Now I just wish I could have gotten my mitts on Surreal Violet.

  8. Vanessa

    Its pretty but i feel like you can get a similar color for a lot less somewhere else….

  9. Katie

    It looks really similar to one of the colors from the Orly CosmicFX collection that came out earlier this year. However, this one seems to feature more prominent silver specks.

  10. Amazing color, I want it!!!!

  11. That’s gorgeous! Color me surprised, but Estee Lauder has been coming out with some excellent items lately. I used to totally ignore this brand in the past.

  12. You just made my day!

  13. Hilary‚ô•

    Aww what an awesome color! Would love to get this.

  14. BethM

    This doesn’t look like anything special to me. Dark purple with multi-color glitter/shimmer. Maybe it looks better in person than in photographs?

    *yawn*

  15. This is a lovely color! It’s similar to P2 – Rich but Rich doesn’t have as noticeable gold glitter.

  16. Janice

    That is absolutely stunning!

  17. leesie

    Oh, man, that’s gorgeous. But, seeing as I just (after much hemming and hawing) bought my first Lippmanns yesterday, I won’t be shelling out $18 for .3 oz of polish anytime soon…

  18. Tiffany S.

    I love everything about it except the price.

  19. That’s a pretty funky shade for Estee Lauder.

  20. Just bought the LAST one at Macy’s in Stanford. Both Nordstroms at VF at Stanford are sold out! Love this color <3

  21. Wendy

    Wow! Can’t believe that is from Estee Lauder! Woohoo! Estee is on a roll! :)

  22. I like the mix of dark purple and glitters. Pretty!

  23. I got this from my best friend for my b-day! I shared this link with her and she must have made a mental note. My bottle is more of a wine than a purple, as yours appears to be. I love it. I just did 2 coats and am debating a third.
