Estee Lauder - Surreal Violet

Today's polish is from Estee Lauder's Blue Dahlia collection from Fall 2010, Surreal Violet. I fell hard for this polish when I saw swatches of it but didn't bite the bullet when it was still in stores. I was soon out of luck, darn those limited edition lacquers! I finally found it on a blog sale a while ago so I snatched it up right quick, *phew*!

Surreal Violet is a warm dusty mauvey lavender. It didn't really look all that purple on me, more rosy. There is a gorgeous copper bronze shimmer in it that makes it shift slightly in different lights. It appeared as almost a nude against my skin tone in most lights. The sun makes this glow so warm, like a cozy sweater. This is three coats and top coat. I could've gotten away with two though I think.

Sadly this color is long since discontinued, but you never know, you might find it on Ebay or a blog sale like I did! It was $18 when it was on sale from Estee Lauder...a tad expensivo for only 0.3 oz, but a gorgeous color nonetheless. Do you have any discontinued polishes that you're constantly on the look out for to purchase? I still have a long list of "lemmings" to get through, though it's so satisfying to finally capture one after a long search!
