Lippmann Collection: Nail Color Swatches
I got so stoked when I received my new Lippmann colors in the mail today. I found this really nice lady who owns a nail spa/salon that sells Lippmanns for less than retail price with free priority shipping within the United States. I asked her if she had my most coveted Lippmann colors. She said she did, and I quickly put in the order. I got my babies in just two business days (Thursday was a holiday so that didn't count). I love everything!!!
I have long been coveting Bitches Brew, and I am so glad I got one at long last. Nefertiti is so beautiful in swatches online, and the rave reviews made me take the plunge and snag one. Satin Doll is also a beautiful neutral polish made for Mariah Carey. Lastly, Superstar is indeed the superstar among all my nail polishes. I have never owned a polish as outlandish yet gorgeous as that.
Nefertiti has the same gorgeous shimmer as Believe, but of course is yellower and gold-toned. I never liked yellow gold on my nails, but Nefertiti doesn't look repulsive on my tips. This is such a fun color, especially for the holidays.
Satin Doll is a beautiful, subtly shimmery beigey cream color that is such a pretty neutral. I can totally imagine Mariah Carey wearing this. Sweet and unassuming but definitely makes a statement.
Bitches Brew!!!!! Ahhh, such a gorgeous vampy color. I'm running out of superlatives to describe these nail lacquers. The deep winey burgundy color is also very festive and is the perfect fall shade.
Now I have definitely run out of superlatives. I just stared in awe of my nails after swatching this. The glitters are not the cheap kind you see in lower end nail polishes. This finish was a tad gritty but it was nothing a couple of applications of top coat couldn't fix.
I am really glad about this nail polish haul because these are the Lippmann colors I'd been really dying to get. I can't wait to try these out especially for the holidays.
