Day 292: Deborah Lippmann – Flash Dance

Hey Dolls,

Happy V-day I have an awesome glitter bomb for you today it is called Flash Dance from Deborah Lippmann’s Dance Music Holiday Mini Trio Nordstrom’s Exclusive. Flash Dance has tons of purple micro glitter with large dark pink glitter in a magenta jelly base. It looks like Nails Inc. Bloomsbury Square and wet N’ Wild’s Back Alley Deals, I will compare them for you all later on. I’m gonna need Deborah to make this in a full size bottle, please! The formula was really great on this one it went on smooth and does dry a little gritty like all dense glitters but nothing a few coats of a top coat can’t handle to smooth it out. The Dance Music Holiday Mini Trio was a Nordstrom’s exclusive it retailed for $29. That’s all I have for you today until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 278: Deborah Lippmann – Dancing In The Dark

Hey Dolls,

I have a fun polish for you today it is called Dancing In The Dark from Deborah Lippmann’s ‘Dance Music’ Mini Trio (Nordstrom Exclusive). Nordstrom describes Dancing in the Dark as “disco ball in the dark – glitter” which kind of made me laugh because aren’t all disco balls in the dark? Dancing In The Dark is a ton of gunmetal micro glitter and  larger holographic pieces.  It looks like a dark rainbow explosion on my nails. I love this one and it looks like a few other brands have dupes to this glitter also I will do a dupe post about this one very soon. It’s a bit on the sheer side but it builds nicely. It can become opaque in two to three coats. Glitter + Holo + Deborah Lippmann = perfection! It took me three coats to achieve full opacity but part of that has to do with the fact that this is a mini bottle and whenever I use mini brushes, it takes me a few extra strokes to get the polish opaque!  I really hope that Deborah Lippmann comes out with this in a full size because it’s gorgeous!  It’s the perfect winter polish with the dark grey base and then the holographic glitter just really pops! Dancing In Th Dark dries to a semi-matte and gritty texture, be warned – IT EATS TOP COAT! It took 3 coats just to feel smooth and after 6 hours or so it feels like it probably needs coat 4! Only issue I have with these, though from what I hear the other holographic glitters coming out have the same issues. That’s all I have to say tonight until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 272: Deborah Lippmann – Just Dance

Hey Dolls,

I have a fun polish for you today it is called Just Dance from Deborah Lippmann’s ‘Dance Music’ Mini Trio (Nordstrom Exclusive). Just Dance is a brilliant aqua – glitter, it is basically a ton of small aqua glitter and larger bright blue glitter in a very sheer blue jelly base. I love how the different shades of blue makes this color look almost three dimensional! This set is a trio of three mini bottles,they are .30 FL Oz 9 ML. The formula on this polish was thick but really easy to work with you can get it opaque in a few easy coats. It dries with a bit of a gritty texture but two good top coats smooths it out. Like I said this trio is exclusive to Nordstrom and retails for $29 you can also get it off their website, it was a 2011 holiday collection it is still available at the moment. it has a few dupes the only one I can think of at the moment is Wet N’ Wild’s Cost Is No Issue. You can wear it alone or over another color to give your manicure some pizzazz. I took some pictures of it over a black polish to show you how it looks layered over Revlon Lunar. That’s all I have to say about this polish today until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel….
