NOTD: Modern Love by Deborah Lippmann

Posted on: August 29, 2012

I must tell you right off the bat, this is my very first Deborah Lippmann polish, EVER !. Can you believe it? For some reason I have never bought a DL polish. I love her polishes, I love her story, I follow her on Twitter, I watch her on HSN, I read every article about her, but just never bought her polishes. For one thing, she is known mostly for glitter polish. The Queen of Glitter would be Deborah Lippmann. The Anti-Queen of Glitter would be me!. Ha! I would through everyone with glitter polish on their nails in the dungeon. They can wear it on their toes, but not on their nails! There, I said it, I don’t like glitter nail polish. I think anyone who knows me already knows this about me.
This summer was the summer of turquoise, if you ask me, I think turquoise just screamed Summer 2012! Part of the reason for that is because DL released, early in the Spring 2012 these 2 polishes:

20120829-230114.jpg. please note: I did not take this photo. This was taken from the Nordstrom website. Mermaid’s Dream and On the Beach were instant hits and from there summer began, with the turquoise color, not tangerine as stated by Sephora and Pantone. Although, I will say there was a ton of coral out there this summer, to go along with the turquoise.
Back to the reason I bought a DL polish. I have been working all summer on a comparison of nail polish by brand. I have been using the criteria of cost, dry time, wearability, stain/no-stain, formula, VNL, size of bottle, bottle design and removal. I have tested Revlon, Chanel, illamasqua, Dior, Sally Hansen, wet n wild, essence, Barry M, Catrice, Gosh, Essie, Julep, CND, Mac, Nails Inc, Sephora by OPI, Ciate, butter London, Models Own, OPI, China Glaze, Orly, Zoya, Borghese, Megan Miller, Color Club, Cosmetic Arts, Venique and L’Oreal. What is missing from this list? Deborah Lippmann. So now I had a reason to buy a DL polish.


To some this may seem a boring beige, and to be honest my first thought was “mannequin hands anyone?”. But, after wearing this polish for a few days I have come to love it. It has a lavender undertone to it, and the slightest bit of shimmer, when the light hits it just right it glistens beautifully. This is a gorgeous polish, and I’m going to even say this is in my top 5 favorite polishes. Okay, okay I know my top 5 really has about 12 polishes in there but this deserves a spot in the top 5. It is that pretty.

I really like my very first Deborah Lippmann polish purchase. And I will be going back for more.

💅Thanks for stopping by 😄

I really think you’ve got the perfect shade here.It looks like the kind of polish I would choose also.It reminds me of Revlon Elegant or Grey Suede.I agree with you on the No Glitter point of view,too!


You are so right, I forgot about Grey Suede, it is a lot like that, maybe a bit deeper in color. You have a good eye. Thanks Linda,, I appreciate you stopping by and commenting. Xoxo

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
