Estée Lauder and Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux introduce new Pure Color Nail Lacquer Beyond Black and Metal Mania Collections.  Inspired by the seduction, beauty and fantasy of Paris at night. Read on for more…

I’ve long loved the Estée Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquers. The formula is exceptional–long lasting, chip-resistant and the colors are phenomenal. The new Pure Color Nail Lacquers take a walk on the wild side of Paris.  “When creating this collection,” said Pecheux, “I wanted to capture the intensity and naughty side of Paris when it truly comes alive…at night!”

The Beyond Black Collection is defined by five deep shades that saturate nails in rich and dramatic color, capturing the allure of the Parisian Femme Fatale. The shades include: Caviar, Bête Noire, Black Plum, Blue Blood and Viper.

Metal Mania dresses nails in glam glitters for a modern metallic finish, enticing women to experiment, with daring effect. Regardless of which collection you pick from, you can’t go wrong. The Metal Mania shades include Nouveau Riche, Explosif, Chaos, Smashed and Fiery Hot.

I was sent a few shades to preview and absolutely love them.  First up, from the Beyond Black Collection are Black Plum and Caviar:

Next, from the Metal Mania Collection is Smashed. Hard to photograph and really capture the beautiful purple and blue shimmer within the polish. In the sunlight it’s stunning.


As you would expect from Tom Pecheaux’s involvement with the fashion world, the colors are perfectly on trend for Fall. And like in the past, I had no problems with chipping.  The formula is long-wearing–even on someone like me who doesn’t take any precautions to protect my mani. I definitely plan to also pick up the Bête Noire and Viper shades for Fall.

The Estée Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer Beyond Black and Metal Mania Collections are available now at select Estée Lauder counters nationwide and at  Each shade has a suggested retail price of $20.00.  What nail color shades are you planning to buy for Fall?  Let me know in the comments!
