"Shhh… this Spring, find serenity with Deborah Lippmann’s new Whisper collection, featuring sheer, light colors that are clean and understated, yet modern and refined. As easy to apply as they are to wear, all four shades float over the nails with a soft and effortless elegance. Always inspired by the fashion and beauty around her, it was backstage at Honor’s S/S 2014 show, where Deborah became captivated by the quiet, yet dramatic effects of the light cascading through the models chiffon fabrics as they exited backstage. A moment – calm and peaceful amongst the chaos. Like a soft whisper.
Explore your softer side with these tranquil shades: Like Dreamers Do, a sheer pale bisque previewed at the Badgley Mischka, Theory and Donna Karan S/S 2015 runway shows, A Fine Romance, a sheer pearly champagne, Misty Morning, a sheer blue-grey, and Chantilly Lace, a sheer iridescent pink" according to the press release.
The Whisper collection includes:
A Fine Romance: a pale nude with a fine golden iridescent shimmer.
Misty Morning: a super pale powder baby blue with grey undertones.
Chantilly Lace: a super pale powder pink with iridescent shimmer.
Like Dreamers Do: a light toasted almond with subtle gray undertones.
(all swatches shown here are two coats).
This collection to me serves as a nice respite from all the highly saturated and dark shades we've been wearing for fall/winter. Keep in mind this entire four piece collection is SHEER, so if you are not a fan of sheer polishes with visible nail line showing, consider yourself warned, this collection might not be for you.
I typically am not a fan of sheer polishes, but I find these shades in particular to breathe a breath of fresh air. The undertones or iridescent shimmer gives them dimension and subtle texture, something not present in other brand's sheer polishes.
Considering the fact that the shades are all sheer, I did not have any problems with application. I found each shade painted on smoothly and evenly in two coats; being very well pigmented for sheer shades. I have seen other bloggers using three coats, but I don't find it necessary. This collection is intended to be very light, airy, and ethereal.
My personal favorites in this collection are A Fine Romance & Chantilly Lace.
Each shade retails for $18, and can be purchased online at www.deborahlippmann.com and at
Barneys New York, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Sephora stores nationwide.
