Deborah Lippmann’s Fall 2011 Collection of four polishes is up on Nordstrom’s now for the Anniversary Sale. The colors are so dark and luscious! Swatches of all four coming up.
Today I have swatches of Deborah Lippmann’s Glitter in the Air over Naked, which are both from the Spring 2011 collection. I first reviewed these separately, but I decided I wanted to revisit Glitter in the Air and try it over something with a different color than its own base.
I’ve had Chanel’s Riva on my mind lately because Dior released a new summery blue called Saint-Tropez. Riva came out in January, and was used in Chanel’s resort show in Saint-Tropez before that, so it’s definitely part of the same summery blue polish space.
Deborah Lippmann’s Summer 2011 colors are now available. I’ve been watching for the yellow from this collection ever since Lady Gaga wore it at the Grammy’s, and I also picked the bright, orangey-coral color, Girls Just Want To Have Fun.
I picked up a bottle of I Juggle…Men from OPI’s Femme de Cirque collection, since it’s so pretty in the bottle. And I’m a sucker for the ellipsis in the name (I know it’s silly). It’s a very sheer sparkle topcoat, that flashes blue, purple and pink in the bottle, so I was curious to see it over other polishes.
Deborah Lippmann has two new polishes for Spring 2011–Naked and Glitter in the Air. Naked has already shown up on magazine covers and on Anne Hathaway at the 2011 Oscars, and Glitter in the Air was inspired by Pink’s performance at last year’s Grammys, so they are both well-pedigreed. Keep reading for swatches!
To finish up my recent Essie binge, I have swatches of two retail-only Essies: Dive Bar and Master Plan. These are new colors that are only available through the new Essie retail displays, or online through the retailers that have the displays, like WalMart and WalGreens. It took some perserverance, but here they are!
I’ve been kind of struggling lately when I try to pick a polish. I have polish from some of the spring collections, but it seems too early to me to wear it yet. It’s just not time for pastels! Or even really light greys. It’s been nasty and snowy around here, and the greenish and brownish colors from fall also don’t seem to fit. So I’ve been picking greys a lot. Here’s one I choose recently, Deborah Lippmann’s Waking Up in Vegas.
This pretty blue shade is from Chanel’s Côte D’Azur Collection. It was first shown on the runway in St. Tropez in May, and immediately created a lot of interest and buzz. Although it was rumored to only be available in December, when I checked the Chanel website last week it was already up, and I quickly ordered my two bottles. It’s still available now on the Chanel website. The website also seems to actually be working, unlike when the Khakis appeared, and there was so much traffic that the website crashed.
There have already been a lot of reviews posted, and many of them have been very critical, complaining about the formula and the fact that the shimmer from the bottle is not as noticeable on the nail. I really like it though–I think it’s a lot more wearable than most light/pastel blues, since it’s a bit sheer and doesn’t seem stark or too white.
