The Nail Polish Brand that Surprised Me in 2014

Posted on: January 23, 2015

2014has been a year of reflection for me as I haven’t been able to drive or to haunt shop my favorite beauty places to see first hand all the new items. To continue with my blog I had to rely on PR firms and friends to bring me the newest and greatest out there.
πŸ‘Ό πŸ‘Ό πŸ‘Ό
This brings me to Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish. As you all know I do not care for glitter nail polish. My favorite finishes are cream, duo-chrome, metallic and matte. In that order. I do however own Deborah Lippmann glitter polishes, which I believe are compulsory for any nail polish collector, such as Mermaid’s Dream and Sweet Dreams, but I’ve never used them.

This summer I was sent the entire 80’s Rewind collection from a PR firm for Deborah Lippmann and what an eye opener this was for me. This entire collection is made up of bright summer colors that popped on your nails. You know how when a polish dries it dulls a bit? Not these from Deborah Lippmann, the colors were nothing short of amazing. They were just as bright, true to their color a week after application. Gorgeous colors too! Perfect for summer. β˜€οΈ

The formula, the brush, the bottle and dry time all were given 5/5 stars. I loved this collection. I tried not to gush too much about it as it was sent to me from a PR company for review. I did not want my readers to think I was kissing up to them (the PR people) but from the response I got I know my write up was a success for both myself and the collection.

The next 3 bottles I received were from the New York Marquee collection, again from a PR company.

As you can see, these are all metallic finishes. I love the way metallic polish looks but application is such a pain in the you know what I feel like I’m trying to apply chewing gum to my nails. But not so with this Deborah Lippmann collection.
The formula is awesome giving flawless results:

These gorgeous results are from a formula with great one coat coverage. Dries super fast and looks amazing. “Take the A Train” is my favorite which is why I have use half a bottle in a few months. It’s a great color as it can be neutral or not. “Harlem Nocturne” looks more gray in the bottle but it is more navy/purple when applied. Again a great look and finish for a metallic.

These are a few of the reasons I’ve fallen under the spell of Deborah Lippmann this year. It’s nice to know she isn’t all glitter (not that there is anything wring with glitter), just not my cup of tea. I was pleasantly surprised at the formula, the detail to the brush and bottle and the overall wearability of these polishes. If you haven tried Deborah Lippmann nail,polish, for what ever reason, I highly recommend this brand and I think you will be very happy. Deborah Lippmann brand can be found at most high end department stores like www.nordstrom.com and I have heard the brand is featured on HSN (the home shopping channel). Retail price is around $18 per bottle but there are often times sales offered. Deborah Lippmann also carries a complete and full line of nail and cuticle care products for any problem you may have with your nails.

I have wondered lately if I hadn’t been house bound this past year if I would have given Deborah Lippman brand a chance? I guess I’ll never know, but I’m sure glad I did. Let me know what you think of this brand, I’d love to know your opinions.

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
