My first Deborah Lippmann! I had completely given up on being able to acquire one of these amazing polishes until I get a real job. I just can’t bring myself to drop $16 on a single bottle of polish as a poor college student. As it is, I haven’t eaten a real meal in a week due to my polish buying spree.
Anyway, when I saw Deborah Lippmanns on sale at HSN.com, I couldn’t pass them up. I picked up this half of the Footloose collection for $16 a few weeks ago – two for the price of one, which I thought was pretty amazing. And then yesterday, I ordered the second half of the collection for… wait for it… $10! Seriously, if you’ve been waiting to try Deborah Lippmann, now’s your chance!
This is one of four polishes that Deborah Lippmann released with the remake of Footloose a while ago. It’s called Let’s Hear it for the Boy (which gets stuck in my head whenever I look at the bottle), and it’s a gorgeous bright powder blue. Even though it’s a pastel, it stands out and it makes my hands look tan – which takes a lot.
This is two coats with a coat of Essie Good to Go.
This is the first Deborah Lippmann I’ve ever tried, and I have never dealt with a nail polish formula quite like it. It actually took some getting used to because it was so different, but I absolutely love it. The brush is amazing – it’s small and short, but also soft, so it spreads well and gets the polish exactly where you want it. The formula is thin, but super smooth, and this only took me two coats to get it completely opaque. It also dries lighting fast – faster than any fast dry topcoat I’ve ever tried. While I do really like this, this is the part that took a little getting used to, because you have to apply it really quickly.
Overall, I am in love with this nail polish! Though it isn’t an everyday color, I think I’ll be wearing it a lot this summer. And I will definitely be buying more Deborah Lippmanns as soon as I can – I have my eye on the Snow White & the Huntsman duo (which might just be my birthday present to myself).
