Lippmann Summer Collection: Review, Swatches
|Product: Lippmann Nail Polish|
|Colors: Shut up and Drive, Lady Marmalade|
|Buy it: Lippmann, Nordies|
|Recommend: Yes, if you like shimmers|
The lippmann collection introduces two gorgeous shimmery shades for summer. I wanted to start off my nail polish swatches with a little glitz and glam delivered right to your nails. Which, is exaclty what these two shades delivers.
Lady Marmalade, a sizzling coral strawberry shade named after the classic disco song and Shut up and Drive, is a drop-dead gorgeous magenta with Tons of silver shimmer named after Rihanna's top 40 hit. We all know how much our girl , Rihanna love those magenta based shades! And, Deborah Lippmann did an excellent job creating this color to fit Rihannas style.
I'm not going to spend much time on this review because the photo's pretty much explain everything. However, these polishes are semi-sheer, glossy and take serveral coats to accomplish a good color pay-off. Shut up and Drive required three heavy applications and Lady Marmalade four. Personally, I dread applying more than two coats of polish because I'm not patient enough to sit still. But, after seeing the end result - it's worth the wait. Keep in mind my nail tips are extremely white (almost french manicure white). It does take a little more than average to completely cover my nail and the heavy coating may have contributed to that factor. Check out the all photo swatches below.
Lady Marmalade is much more sheer and has the least amount of shimmer compared to Shut up and Drive. Four heavy applications were used in the swatch above. And, to be honest, I could probably use an additional coat. Lady Marmalade is a great shade, espically if you don't fancy too much shimmer or glitter.
Hello...., gorgeous! Aren't you going to look so fab on my hand and toes! I am completely speechless and hyptonized by this gorgeous magenta shade! Shut up and drive is absolutley beautiful and the photos don't justify the true color pay-off. Now, when I say this color has lots of shimmer - I'm talking about TONS. The silver glitter is so overpowering it takes over the nail polish and you'll start to notice an metallic sheen.
The metallic sheen is really hard to capture digitally. But, you can start to see some metallic in the photo above.
Shut up and Drive and Lady Marmalade are great shades for summer. Super glittery, fun, and perfect for those nights out with the girls or just some good ole fun.
Are you guys feeling these colors?
