You know, the thing I really, really love about Deborah Lippman‘s polishes, even more than the great formula, is how unique the shades are. I almost never pick up a bottle of her polish without thinking it and it always gets me super excited to see her new collections when they come out. The new summer shades are no exception. I haven’t gotten my hands on a ton of them yet and I’m planning a trip to my nearest Nordstrom soon to remedy to that, but in the meantime, here are the fabulous new shades I have had a chance to play around with.
- Ray of Light – This is my absolute favorite shade I’ve tried in the past few months and since I’ve turned into somewhat of a nail polish collector this past couple of years, that’s really saying something. It’s described as a 3D holographic electric indigo, but that doesn’t really do it justice. It’s this amazing deep blue with glitter pieces in it that seem to change from gold to copper depending on what light I’m looking at them in. It’s so, so pretty. I actually squealed a little when I took it out of the box and saw it for the first time, it’s that gorgeous.
- Mermaid’s Dream – Another shade that fascinates me because I have nothing else that even comes close to it in my polish collection. It’s an ethereal seafoam shimmer that also has pieces of glitter in it to make it even more sparkly. It’s such a pretty green (and I’m not normally a person who loves greens). I also love that it’s both shimmery AND glittery. Why have one when you can have both, right?
I also tried out the new Nails of Steel Magnetic Wave Design set. Love this one! It comes with two polishes and a magnet for making the waves (which I’ve gotten a lot better at doing, if I can just pat myself on the back a little here). The shades in this set are Physical Attraction (a hazelnut wave) and Big Red Machine (a sherry wave). They’re both much more subtle than Ray of Light and Mermaid’s Dream, but they’re equally pretty in their own way. I especially love the shimmery neutral of Physical Attraction – it looks good both alone and with the use of the magnet to add a design to it.
