Deborah Lippmann’s Shape Of My Heart, a very pale & sheer pink creme.
It’s a strange thing to say, but I couldn’t get a really good picture today because the sun was too bright? There were shadows/glare at EVERY angle. I’m going to try to get better pictures later.
Painted my nails with a couple of Deborah Lippmann polishes today! I LOVE these colors so much!
The blue creme is On The Beach. Amazing formula, 2 coats for complete opacity & so easy to apply! I’ve realized how much I actually love the DL brushes, they’re a really good size for me even though I generally prefer bigger brushes like OPI & Sally Hansen’s CSM. DL’s brushes are a bit smaller than OPI’s, but they fan out and cover the nail so well.
The glitter polish would be Mermaid’s Dream. It was THE POLISH that made me place an order for Deborah Lippmann polishes. Well, this and Across The Universe. It’s has tiny green/turquoise glitter with larger blue glitter pieces. I’m pretty sure there’s a hint of gold glitter in it too. 1 coat was almost enough, I had to do 2 coats to make sure there was no visible nail line, but it was SO easy to apply. It’s PERFECT. Definitely a one-of-kind polish everyone needs to own. I think I’ve finally found a nail polish I love more than China Glaze’s For Audrey :O
Painted my nails with Deborah Lippmann’s Daytripper! I’d have loved to wear AtU for a while more but I can’t wait to swatch the other polishes!
This is 2 coats of Daytripper is a bright pink polish that appeared to be a jelly when I applied the first coat. But when I applied the second, it’s pretty apparent that it’s a creme polish! The formula of this is perfect, it goes on really nicely, no streaks, no brush strokes and completely opaque in 2 coats!
The only think I noticed was that there was a very slight shrinkage when I used Seche Vite Dry Fast top coat over it. Overall, Daytripper is definitely a winner, it’s PERFECT for Summer too.
My Deborah Lippmann/Butter London order finally came in :D Granted, I didn’t wait all that long but it felt like forever because I was so excited & anxious.
THIS has been my biggest polish lemming ever since I started getting into nail polish (1.5 years ago) and I’ve finally gotten my paws on it! It’s Deborah Lippmann’s Across the Universe :”)
I should have layered it over a blue polish (like China Glaze’s First Mate) so I wouldn’t have to put on 4 coats, but I was too excited to try it & it didn’t occur to me. 4 coats (3 coats and a last swipe to cover the patchy areas) is pretty decent for a jelly, but I don’t want to waste it!
My previous mani (here) were starting to wear away at the tips so I decided to try the half moon manicures which are really popular & I love how they look.
I layered China Glaze’s Kinetic Candy over the top and this is pretty much a fail because the half moons look really weird, apart from the thumb! Oh well, practice makes perfect!
Thumb, pointer and pinkie are OPI’s Mermaid’s Tears. Middle & ring finger are China Glaze’s Goddess!
I’ve already swatched Mermaid’s Tears once before (my very first post here) but I decided I wanted to paint my nails it again because I loveeeee the color.
I’ve never tried China Glaze’s Goddess (the gold glitter) though. It’s meant to be worn as a glitter overcoat but I wanted to wear it on it’s own so this is 4 coats. It’s going to be SUCH a pain to remove but I love how these two colors look together!
This is China Glaze’s Shooting Stars layered over Electric Beat, not exactly a new review/post because I have painted my nails with Electric Beat before here !
I saw someone layering Techno from Electropop collection over Electric Beat and I loved it! I wanted to do that too & I was certain I purchased Techno, but I can’t find it. So I used Shooting Stars instead. It doesn’t exactly give the same effect, but I love this combination too.
This is my first scented polish ever, and it’s Revlon’s Mad About Mango. Okay, I have a confession to make. I don’t clean my nails up after I paint them, so you can tell what a sloppy job I did with this. I usually leave them til I take a shower, then all the bits of nail polish on my fingers/cuticles will just fall off. Much easier than cleaning up! I hope the messiness doesn’t bother anyone too much though!
Mad About Mango is a lovely coral creme polish, a really summery color! This is 2 coats and it goes on really nicely! I quite like the Revlon brushes too, they’re of a good size, neither too big nor too small.
It does smell like mangoes too, slightly sweet & artificial smelling but it smells okay. I liked the smell when I first put it on but after a couple of days, it began to annoy me when I put makeup on/scratched my face. Probably not a polish for anyone who’s sensitive to smells!
