Greed and Sin both feature a sensual shimmer that makes eyes pop. Formulated in an array of textures, the shades in this line truly offer something for everyone.

Until Estee Lauder I really doubted high end nail polishes were worth the extra money. Many I’ve tried chipped faster than my drugstore brands. That is to say until the wonder that is Estee Lauder Nail Lacquer waltzed into my life.
I’m always running around like a mad woman so the fact that the EL nail lacquer dries so quickly is a huge bonus. What makes it worth the time and money is how shiny and great this polish dries and that it’s super fade and chip resistant.
