Estee Lauder Ultra Violet nail polish: fit for the Factory

By Aisling | April 7 2010 | 7 Comments

One of the Warhol groupies called herself Ultra Violet and I remember she had an all white bedroom with a Lichtenstein over the bed. Teenage me wanted too be her so much – I was slightly obsessed with Warhol and his Factory and the girls called Polly Ester and the like. Never mind that Ultra was actually a posh French bit (and ex of Salvador Dali) and no one knew quite why she was hanging around the tin foil-clad Factory.

Still, great name and so I am always predisposed to love anything called Ultra Violet. Part of the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess range there are two Ultra Violet goodies to choose from – the liquid eyeshadow that I’ve already told you about and this nail polish (€17).

Ahem, I admit that when I was on the Afternoon Show last week I mistakenly called this “purple glitter.” Agh. Still hopefully I’ve cleared up the error now and I apologise to all the ladies on the EL counters who were totally bamboozled by people coming in and asking them for said Purple Glitter …

Ultra Violet is a gorgeous rich purple, only made better by the silver glitter through it.

Totally yum, long lasting and still rocking the dark nails trend. This is one that I think even Warhol would have approved of.

    Love it! Would I be brave enough to wear it during the day?!

  • Anneml says:

    Gorgeous colour! Is it really longlasting? EL polishes have let me down on that front before. Oh and how much?

    Love the colour, and the added sparkle. Please, Please, Please stop showing me pretty things that I don’t need but then have to buy. Please. Thank you.

    It costs €17 – and on the long lasting front I am not a good person to ask as everything chips off my nails in approx two hours!

    But it is a lovely colour and well worth having in your “nail wardrobe”

    You would think my “nail wardrobe” would be full but oh no there is always room for 1 or 2 something elses!
