Deborah Lippmann Summer 2015 Collection: Painted Desert Review 0

"Deborah Lippmann Summer 2015 Collection: Painted Desert. Wild. Blazing. Boundless. (Limited Edition) 

This summer, travel with deborah lippmann on an exotic journey deep into the Sahara where the sun blazes, the sky glows and the sand swelters.  This collection of four full coverage nail lacquers is your ticket to explore the vast, arid terrain.  Each shade reflects the desert's remarkable beauty and rich, earthy landscape.

Get lost in a desert paradise with these new full coverage neutral shades: Shifting Sands, a light khaki previewed at Eva Fehren, Terra Nova, a warm camel previewed at Narciso Rodriguez, Desert Moon, a pebble gray and Love In the Dunes, a purple mauve" according to the press release. 

The Painted Desert Summer 2015 Collection includes:

Shifting Sands: a creamy beige nude. Shifting Sands song by Caedmon's Call. [light khaki creme]

Love in the Dunes: a dusty medium purple mauve creme with gray undertones. a 1 Coat Wonder!! Smooth, easy, perfect application in a single coat!! Love in the Dunes song by Elliot Goldenthal. [purple mauve creme]

Terra Nova: a dusty cappuccino brown creme with slight mustard undertones. Terra Nova song by James Taylor & Carly Simon. [warm camel creme]

Desert Moon: a deep medium gray creme, with sage green undertones. Also a 1 Coat Wonder!! Desert Moon song by Dennis DeYoung. [pebble gray creme]

(all swatches shown here are two coats, taken outdoors in natural light.)

 I am so beyond obsessed and in love with this collection.  It is such a pleasant departure from typical bright neon color palettes you see for summer collections.  This color palette to me represents what Deborah does best- understated elegance.  The formulas were a dream come true to work with, going on very smoothly and evenly, with some of the shades were even One Coat Wonders!! Apparently this collection is Limited Edition, so I highly recommend you pick it up before its too late.

The Painted Desert collection will be available in May, retailing for $18 each online at http://www.deborahlippmann.com/, and at Barneys, Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Sephora stores nationwide.

Deborah Lippmann- Spring Reveries 2014

Deborah Lippmann- Spring Reveries 2014 0

Although Debroah Lippmann initially introduced 6 beautiful limited edition pastel shades for her Spring 2014 collection- Spring Reveries; due to immense popular demand, 2 of those shades have become permanent staples in her regular collection.

Blue Orchid: a baby blue creme.  I know most of you out there think this is a dead on dupe for Essie's highly popular "Bikini so Teeny," but this shade blows that out of the park.  I know this is a baby blue, but its brighter and more vivid than "Bikini so Teeny".  I have personally worn this shade on both my hands and my toes, and I can't tell you how many people complement me! 

La Vie En Rose: a very very light pastel pink shimmer.  There is an irridesence to this polish that is primarily visible upon close inspection.  This color is a gorgeous neutral that belongs in every polish collection, and has become particularly popular when Academy Award Winning actress Lupita Nyong'o wore this shade to the Oscars.

All swatches shown here are 2 coats and a top coat.

I am not choosing favorites.  Both of these colors are fantastic and exceptional.  I highly recommend you add both of them to your polish arsenal.

Deborah Lippmann- Bold Glitters

Deborah Lippmann- Bold Glitters 0

Back by very popular demand, Deborah Lippmann has re-introduced 2 fabulous glitter polishes to her permanent collection.

The shades initially came out in miniature bottles as a gift set sold exclusively at particular department stores, but due to high demand, and after swatching them, I too understand why they are back and here to stay.

The 2 new glitter shades are:

Just Dance: a sparkling bright aqua blue glitter.

Flash Dance: a sparkling glimmering purple with fuchsia glitter.

All swatches shown here are 2 coats & a top coat.  

I personally have never come across such Fantastic glitter polishes.  Usually glitter polishes are very sparse, and require multiple coats to build up the color for full opacity.  Not these! In 2 coats the color is completely solid! I have Just Dance on my toes right now, and I can't even begin to tell you the amount of compliments I have received in the last couple of days alone! (and I haven't even made it to a beach or pool yet ^-^).  I can't choose a favorite out of these two because I love them both so much, and recommend you pick them both up, for they're an excellent addition to any ones collection.

Deborah Lippmann: “80’s Rewind” Summer 2014 Swatches

Deborah Lippmann: “80’s Rewind” Summer 2014 Swatches 0

For summer 2014, Deborah Lippmann has introduced six fabulous brightly colored retro shades that are inspired by the 80's.  I'm a product of the 80's, born in '85, so I have a personal connection to this glam collection. And as per usual, each shade takes it's name from a hit pop/rock song from the era.  

The collection includes:

Walking on Sunshine: a bright sunny yellow creme. This is an Excellent yellow! Usually yellow polishes are very streaky, and need to be applied in 3 thin coats.  Not this one! 🙂

Whip It: a strong rich pink.

Don't Stop Believin': a perfect cross between red and orange.

Video Killed the Radio Star: a vivid true blue.

She Drives Me Crazy: a teal with green undertones.

Maniac: a popping purple. 

All swatches shown here are 2 coats with a top coat.

I found the formula of all the colors in the collection to be great.  They all painted very smoothly and easily.  I love creme polishes, and can never get enough of them.  My personal favorites include: She Drives Me Crazy, Whip It, & Video Killed the Radio Star. 

The 80's Rewind Collection is out now for a limited time, and can be purchased online at: http://www.deborahlippmann.com/
