Last polish in the Deborah Lippmann trio is Popular named after the famous song sung by Kristin Chenoweth. I love Kristin. I'm ok with this polish, although not particularly excited. It's a bit of a letdown because it's so sheer. It's a jelly which I appreciate because it shows the fine shimmer in the polish and gives it dimension. But the sheer quality also required this to be a three coat manicure and I still have visible nail line. I hate that. Anyway the colour is bright and cheery like Glinda is. It's cute, pretty but kinda boring. What you see here is four days of wear. The black flecks are from my last manicure which I was too lazy to take off completely/cleanly.



I just realized I never uploaded this picture of One Short Day nailpolish from the Deborah Lippmann Trio layered over top of Defying Gravity from the same trio.

One Short Day is a gorgeous bluer green than Defying Gravity which leans more yellow green. I really love this combo. But what I really want to try is One Short Day over Emerald City from SpaRitual (how fitting a name/colour combo) because I think the greens will really complement each other.

Currently I’ve been wearing this combo since Sunday and have only just in the last two days been experiencing a lot of chipping.

So far loving this trio! Coming soon: Popular! (But first maybe a Hallowe’en themed polish?)


Two coats of Defying Gravity, my favourite song from the musical. (Followed closely by For Good.) I'm about to apply a coat of One Short Day over top but wanted to snap this picture beforehand. Defying Gravity is a cream which works well for this shade. Coverage is fine - opacity after two coats although I'd consider a third coat if I was wearing this alone.


Why yes that is my husband you see in the background

Recently had a sale on Deborah Lippmann nailpolishes. Across the Universe was sold out by the time I could get home and purchase something. But I did manage to snag Bad Romance and Nefertiti (review and NOTD coming soon). This is Bad Romance with two coats as well as a base & top coat. The polish itself is a black jelly with large and small magenta glitter. I found it hard to get the glitter to disperse evenly but otherwise I’m quite happy with this shade. This may be my last glitter manicure in a while as I feel like I binged a bit during the holidays.

Deborah Lippmann Mermaid's Dream

I think I’m in love. As much as you can be in love with a nailpolish. Deborah Lippmann‘s Mermaid’s Dream is the prettiest shade to grace my nails in a long time.

Mermaid’s Dream is a glittery silvery aqua colour with some big teal blue glitter dispersed throughout. The colour is exactly what you’d imagine a shade called Mermaid’s Dream to look like. The texture, like most glitter nailpolishes, is gritty which is my only (teeny tiny) complain about it. Otherwise, the colour is beautiful and feels very fresh making it perfect for Spring.

The above picture is two days worth of tipwear. It’s minimal although I can see a bit of nail at the edges. I did three coats although only two is needed to achieve opacity. I did three to have a more even distribution of large teal blue glitter. I am also curious to see this colour with For Audrey (or something similar) underneath.
