Lippmann Wednesday

How about a bit of a change with some mainstream polishes? Here are a few Deborah Lippman polishes to ease you through your Wednesday. 

Lippmann Across the Universe
Two coats layered over Sation I'm in the Navy Baby
Despite the few dupes out there, I do think the original is a must own Lippmann. 

Lippmann Across the Universe mattified
I prefer this one mattified, the glitter stands out much more. 

Lippmann Cleopatra in New York
Three coats
Somehow, this sorta blurry pic was the best that I had. Needs to be retaken. Super simple concept of gold glitter in a black base but is elegant and a new favorite of the Lippmanns I own.

Lippmann Glitter in the Air
Two coats layered over Essie Mint Candy Apple and mattified
I want to like this more but somehow it falls flat to me. Maybe it's because of how sparse the glitter is. 

Lippmann I Know What Boys Like
Two Coats
Lovely dark periwinkle. Great formula, if there's one thing to be said about Lippmann polishes, it's that the creme formulas are usually really good. 

Lippmann Mermaid's Dream
Two coats
Playful and summery, a fun interpretation of oceans and mermaids. It dries to a more gritty finish than other glitter polishes, so a couple of layers of topcoat are needed to get a glossy and smooth finish. 

Deborah Lippmann polishes can be purchased on her site, Amazon, and Nordstrom


  1. Lovely shades from this brand :) I love Lippmann Glitter in the Air mattified :)

  2. Lovely swatches!

    DL is one of my favourite mainstream brands, and four of these five are firm favourite colours of mine (not the gold, I seem to have an aversion to anything gold anywhere near my nails, lol)

  3. Wowwww! Across the universe is gorgeous!
