Today I have my very first ever Deborah Lippmann polish!! Thanks to Nouveau Cheap and her quick posting on Facebook I picked up a mini duo set on clearance for $10 from HSN a few weeks ago. The set includes Lady Sings the Blues and Today Was a Fairytale. Probably my biggest lemming on my want list is the “Let’s Get This Part Started” trio set, so I still have to wait on those until someone magical gives it to me or I just finally buy it myself. I was still happy to try out some DL polishes in mini size for so cheap though.
Lady Sings the Blues is a navy blue polish with silver macro and larger hex glitter. Formula was great, especially for a glitter. Just based on that I understand why Deborah Lippmann is so pricey, but worth the money…you are definitely paying for quality. I used two coats, there’s really no reason to go past two since coverage was so great with this formula. I highly suggest a clear top coat as it does dry a little bumpy and not too shiny.
Other than the amazing formula, I’m not as excited as I thought I’d be about this polish. It bothers me that the glitter gets swallowed up by the navy base and isn’t suspended as much as I’d like. Most of it still shows through, but I’m kind of “eh” about it. I think it would have been prettier if the silver glitter wasn’t so eaten up. Maybe I’m just spoiled from all those indie glitters….
