Swatch It Up: Deborah Lippmann–Sweet Dreams

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.

deborahlippmann_sweetdreamsEeek! You can totally see fingerprints with flash!

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”?

  1. The gold flakies are pretty in this polish.
    I have about 15 bottles of bottle-love LOL

    1. LOL, it's good to know that I'm not the only one! Sometimes, I can't believe what I pay for polish!

  2. I love this color! I agree that they are so expensive. I have yet to cave and buy any of the high end polishes like DL, even though I will buy at least 1. I also have fallen in love with bottles too! I think every polish junkie has had bottle love at some point! ;)

  6. Oh gosh, I know what you mean about the price - that's why I only have one DL polish. But man! They always looks so good - I really like this one as well, and I do think it suits you :)

    1. Aww, well I'm glad you think it looks okay on me. I wasn't quite sure! I don't think DLs will be flooding my collection anytime soon because of the price, but the few that I have are true keepers!

  8. It looks amazing :) I know what you mean about these kinds of shade though...I have trouble with some pinks and my skin tone.

    1. I think I need to have a darker skin tone or be kind of tanned in order for this colour to look good. I don't regret getting it, but I was a little bit disappointed :(
