Deborah Lippmann ~Girls set of 4 ~

Posted on: March 9, 2013

Deborah Lippmann Girls set of 4 is a nice set of 4 on trend colors, named after the characters in the HBO show “Girls”. I was instantly drawn to this set because of the cream finish. If there had been one glitter in this set, I would have passed on it. I’m so happy there is not one glitter, or duo-chrome amongst the “Girls”.

The packaging was perfect for this set. I like the box it came in with little sayings from the show here and there. Each bottle has the Deborah Lippmann logo as per usual, but on one side of the bottle is a diamond shape with GIRLS in the middle of the diamond and each girls name makes up the 4 sides. Of course each girl has her own personality represented in the polish itself but also with the names of the polish.

First in the line up for me is Hannah, Hapless Hunter Green I like this polish so much. It is a true hunter green but it does have a bit if a blue under tone, which I like and I think it looks great with my skin tone. This was a very wearable color and since it is DL after all, it wore very well.

Next we have Marnie, Prim and Proper Pink This polish is the perfect pink to wear to a job interview, it would be a great pink for a bride, or just as an everyday great pink polish. I had full coverage with 2 coats. I would call this a shell pink color. I do not have anything remotely close to this polish in my collection. 😊

This is Jessa, Bohemiam Burgundy When I first looked at the bottle I thought this was like so many other red polish I own and then I swatched it and realized it is nothing like any other red I own. The first coat goes on almost raspberry in color, then with the second coat it became, almost as if by magic, a gorgeous burgundy. This will definetly be one my favorites.

This is Shoshanna, Virtuous Vivid Violet. This is again, going to be a favorite of mine for the Spring/Summer 2013. The color is a pretty lavender, again with a blue undertone, and it has a slight silver shimmer to it. So slight it is hard to miss. I noticed it when I was looking through my loupe to see about getting a macro shot. Alas, the macro shot did not work out, yet, but it gives some interest to this great spring color.
For a review of the polish itself, It’s Deborah Lippmann. For those of you familiar with her polish you will know that, for the cream formulas anyway, the formula is consistently smooth, applies like a dream because the brush picks up just the right amount of polish, I did have a bit of streaking with the 2 lighter colors but nothing a 2nd coat didn’t handle. Dry time on these is great and they wear very well. I had on Hannah for 4 days with very slight tip wear only.
I ordered my set from Nordstrom’s, for $48, which works out to $12 per full size bottle. Also, Nodstrom’s never has a shipping fee when you order or when have to return an item. Which is not too bad because each of these colors are ones I will wear over and over. Buying nail polish sets can be tricky, my rule I go by: if there is one color I do not care for I do not buy the set. In this case they are all great colors and all have a cream finish which, as you all know by now, is my favorite.
👯 Any dupes? I didnt so much find dead on dupes but I found several in my collection that are very, very close, and with the price point difference these may be a better option for some. Or let’s say you only like the color Hannah, and you don’t want to splurge on the whole set for one color.
Hannah is very similar to Zoya Evvie. (you can find Evvie here)

For Jessa I found Zoya Ashley (👸) and a Barry M in Raspberry to be very close in color and formulation. ( you can Find Zoya Ashley here

Shoshanna is very close with OPI You’re such a Budapest from their new Euro collection. You can find OPI You’re Such A Budapest where ever OPI products are sold including this blog sells OPI, China Glaze & Venique😊

And as I stated earlier, I do not have anything like Marnie in my collection even though I have several soft pinks, none were even remotely close to Marnie. You may have something similar in your own collection, just not in mine.
I hope you found this review helpful, and if you have any questions, please let me know.

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by.

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
