In my last nail mail post I had mentioned that I would never purchase another Deborah Lippmann polish and I should clarify that I only meant because of price. They seem like such an extravagance that only if a colour was truly unique or possibly on sale would I ever splurge again. Over the holidays, Nail Polish Canada had all Deborah Lippmann polishes for 30% off and since they never go on sale I was all over it!
This is Deborah Lippmann-Sweet Dreams which is described on the Deborah Lippmann site as a “candied pink 3D holographic” polish. Now, for those of us who are absolute nail polish whores, I would not consider this polish to be holographic at all! This is the perfect example of a FLAKIE! What I have on is three coats as this polish can be a bit sheer. Even with three coats there is still some VNL.
To be honest, I haven’t decided how I feel about this polish…I feel like it doesn’t really suit my skin tone. This is certainly a unique polish, but I feel like I fell in love with the bottle more than the colour itself. Have you ever had “bottle-love”?
