I really hate to tease you guys but I got these four Deborah Lippmann polishes on sale for an AMAZING deal....that is no longer available :( so sorry! But I still want to show you swatches and my opinions of these colors! As you may know Deborah Lippmann is a high end nail polish brand, a 0.5 oz nail polish usually costs around $18 each (compare that to Zoya which is $8 for 0.5 oz). These babies came in duo's for $9.95 but basically I paid a total of $29 after taxes and shipping - and that's still over 50% off! Deborah Lippmann polishes rarely go on sale so I jumped on this deal! I really like these polishes but I'm glad I didn't pay full price for them (not that I would have either).
The first two colors, Footloose and Almost Paradise were limited edition and exclusive to hsn.com for the Footloose movie collection. The duo was originally $32 but I bought it for $9.95. The second two, Don't Tell Mama and Dream A Little Dream Of Me are still available on Deborah Lippman's website for $16 each. I did these swatches outside at my grandma's house so that's why there's a pool in the back ground instead of my light box :)
Footloose is a classic bright red creme! I looooove this red and surprisingly don't already own a dupe for it! The formula was perfect and opaque in two coats.
Almost Paradise is a pistachio green creme. This is a true pistachio color and I love it! The formula wasn't prefect though, this was only two coats but you can see a tad bit of streaking. It evened out of the most part.
Don't Tell Mama:
Don't Tell Mama is a deep blue/green shimmer. The formula was good, opaque in two coats. This color is okay, nothing that special.
Dream A Little Dream Of Me:
Dream A Little Dream Of Me is described as a cupcake frosting pink with sheer shimmer. As you can see this polish is SHEER. It's really hard to tell in these photos but shimmer is actually REALLY pretty, it has tiny blue/turquoise shimmer. The first photo is in direct sunlight, the second in the shade and the third over Don't Tell Mama. I really don't like sheer polishes and I would not recommend paying full price for this one but it's still pretty.
Which color is your favorite? I love Footloose even though it's not really an original color. Hope you enjoyed these swatches, have a fantastic day!
