NOTD: Deborah Lippmann “Let it Bleed” from True Blood

UPDATE: after reading some other blogs and doing more research I learned it was not CHANEL Rouge Noir worn by Uma Thurman in the movie ” Pulp Fiction”.
This has been confirmed to several people from CHANEL themselves that they jumped on the dark nail bandwagon in 1994 when this movie came out. In the fall of 1994 the make up artist for CHANEL was using a magic marker to make the models nails dark and that is why they developed #18 Rouge Noir. Sales were through the roof. History was made once again by the House of CHANEL.
What polish was used on Uma Thurman in the movie? MAC Dubonnet used with a bit of OPI matte clear mixed in.

Let it Bleed from Deborah Lippmann for the True Blood series on HBO. This came in a kit called Forsaken and included a lipstick called Bite Me, which is the same color as the nail polish.
I received this the same day I received the CHANEL #18 Rouge Noir that I featured on yesterday’s post. I swatched these 2 colors side by side and quickly realized they are the same. The only difference is the Deborah Lippmann Let it Bleed is fragranced.


Even though these look different from each other in the bottle, they are not when painting on your nails. I used the CHANEL first and was quickly impressed with the look of blood achieved with this polish. Then I swatched the Deborah Lippmann and quickly realized it had the same look and feel of blood. When the swatches dried I could not see a difference in the swatches. I looked at night under the light, in the early morning light and again this afternoon in bright sunlight 😎 there is no difference. This is why I’ve added the DL Let it Bleed as a dead on dupe for CHANEL #18 Rouge Noir on my dupes page, linked above.

I honestly love both of these polishes. I’m so grateful to Carla for sending me the CHANEL and for Haute Look for the deal on the DL set ($8.50 for the set). This polish is definetly in my Top 5 all time favorite polishes. Love it!πŸ’œπŸ’œ

πŸ’… As always, thanks for stopping by!

Another pretty shade – but me too, I always believed the Rouge Noir/Pulp Fiction legend (I admit that I’ve never watched the movie). πŸ˜‰


I’m surprised you’ve never seen the movie, especially how much you like movies! You def need to see Pulp Fiction, aside from the great nail polishes and costuming its a great movie. Xoxo

This is so gorgeous!! Is there any place I can get the nail color without buying the whole set?


Sorry to reply so late but your question was placed in a file I don’t check very often, kind of like spam, but not.
Anyway, I would write to Deborah Lippmann’s web site and ask them. Another one that is very close to this one is of course CHANEL rouge Noir and butter LONDON has one call La Moss. La Moss is very close, no one would know the difference.
Thanks for the question and again so sorry for the lateness in answering.
— take care,

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
