Estée Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer In 28 Teal Topaz

Estée Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer in 28 Teal Topaz is a clean and sharp baby teal. Texture is amazingly smooth and the opacity is brilliant – this shade can easily pass off as a one-coater. Beautiful consistency which allows easy and quick application.

All in all, loving it. I have taken quite a number of photos, hope you like them.

Swatches taken with natural sunlight, without flash – Nail Tek Foundation II Ridge-Filling Base Coat, 2 coats of nail polish and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

After taking photos of swatches above, I felt like giving them a matte makeover – I thought it looks beautiful and fun.

A few comparison for you below – all photos taken without flash, no base nor top coat.

Initially, when I purchased the bottle of Estée Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer in 28 Teal Topaz, I thought it would be very similar to China Glaze For Audrey but when I put them side-by-side, they are in fact, nowhere close. Teal Topaz is a whole lot deeper but they compliment each other very nicely.

I would say OPI Mermaid’s Tears, China Glaze For Audrey, Estée Lauder Teal Topaz and Chanel Nouvelle Vague are from the same family, with a similar undertone – one lean slightly greener, has a hint of shimmer and perhaps a littler brighter.

Out of all the 8 colours up for comparison, Dior Nirvana seems to be the closest but with a more distinct hint of green. Rest of them are a lot more blue than anything else.

What do you think of Estée Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer in 28 Teal Topaz?

Thank you for reading.
