As you may very well know, I adore Estee Lauder 450 Insolent Plum Pure Color Envy Lipstick (reviewed here).  So imagine my surprise when I discovered Estee Lauder also makes a matching nail color, part of the Pure Color Envy Collection.  With the blink of the eye and the sleight of hand of a skillful magician, an isolated bottle of Estee Lauder Insolent Plum Pure Color Nail Lacquer ($21 USD/.3 fl. oz.) found its way to my home.  This beautiful berry red polish was displayed in the most remote location at Bloomingdales…Friends, “Nobody puts [this] Baby in the corner.”

Estee Lauder Insolent Plum has to be one of the most beautiful plum colors I have come across in a long time.  In natural light, the slight red undertones are quite evident, giving this stunner a warmth and brightness that sets it apart from other polishes in the “plum” color family. In the presence of flash photography and during darker lighting conditions, Insolent Plum takes on a deeper tone, but definitely does not cross into “black nail polish” territory.

The brush is a bit thinner than what I am accustomed to using.  However, the formula is the winning feature of this polish; the coverage is smooth and even.  Two coats are all that is needed to reach complete opacity.  The high shine and chip resistant polish will most likely last a good 5 days before I feel the need to remove this beauty.  I am currently wearing Insolent Plum for three days and it looks as fresh as the day I applied it to my nails (this will vary according to one’s activities).  Estee Lauder polishes are considered 3-free; thankfully, most polishes these days fall into this category.

Insolent Plum would be appropriate for a variety of occasions, nail lengths, ages and skin tones.  Best of all, Insolent Plum Nail Lacquer goes perfectly with, you guess it, Insolent Plum Pure Color Envy Lipstick. Even though, some might consider coordinating nail polish and lip color so 1983, this matching set is stylish, modern and attractive.

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you Estee Lauder Insolent Plum Pure Color Nail Lacquer is a must-have.  If you seek a brightening plum polish with amazing shine and longevity, then this color and formula is for you.  Just like its lipstick companion, Insolent Plum Nail Lacquer is sure to get you noticed.  Be well, stay safe and be happy.

  1. This color is HOT!!! I’m so getting this today.

  2. This is truly a gorgeous color, right up my alley! 3 days of high shine for a cream now that’s impressive! I don’t own any EL n/p but will definitely take a closer look. 🙂

    • Hello Icaria,
      Estee Lauder polishes are amazing and so undervalued. I have my eye on Ballerina Pink next; although Insolent Plum maybe on my nails again next week.

    Wonderful post! This is a beautiful color, and thank you for listing the other matching lipstick/nail lacquer combinations–very helpful, as always! Thanks!

    • Hello Bethany,
      I glad you found this review helpful. Personally, I would want to know the other colors Estee Lauders offers, should the Insolent Plum Combo not be to someone’s liking. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.
