Deborah Lippmann Stormy Weather Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Stormy Weather Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “edgy granite” with a cream finish that was created with Narciso Rodriguez. It’s a dark blue-based gray cream. China Glaze Concrete Catwalk is less blue-based. NARS Galion is similar in tone but darker. Chanel Steel is much darker, almost black. Zoya Kelly is just a smidgen lighter but very, very close.

Deborah Lippmann Wicked Game Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Wicked Game Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “swirling lavender gray” with an iridescent finish. It’s a murky lavender-green, and yes, I said it, lavender-green. It’s more of a duochrome than a single shade, so you’ll find it flashes a murky purple in certain lights but in other lighting or angles, you’ll see a silvered green. It’s similar to MAC Ascension and Wet ‘n’ Wild Gray’s Anatomy (which has severe opacity issues). None of these shades are totally opaque after two coats, but Wicked Game is closer to being opaque after two coats (which is what is shown in swatches), as both Ascension and Gray’s Anatomy were sheer enough at two coats that I felt compelled to go for three for swatches.

Deborah Lippmann Girls Just Want to Have Fun Nail Lacquer

The flow of Girls Just Want to Have Fun is excellent; it spreads evenly across the nail without streaking or bubbling. It has a good consistency–not too thick or thin. Deborah Lippmann’s polishes tend to wear well on me; I typically get a week of wear with minor to minimal tip wear. This was originally launched during the summer (I have a major backlog!), but it’s still available and for those who are 1) having summery weather now or 2) wear seasonally inappropriate shades, enjoy! :)

Deborah Lippmann Glamorous Life Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Glamorous Life Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.5 fl. oz.) is described as “Rolex rose gold” with a metallic finish. Deborah Lippmann said it took her three years to get the finish you see in Glamorous Life–always fun to read tidbits like that. It’s champagne, it’s beige, it’s rose gold–it’s really a mix of pink and champagne with threads of gold micro shimmer to give it that metallic finish.  It was opaque in two coats.   Zoya Pandora is less metallic, more shimmered, and not as pink. Rescue Beauty Lounge Plie has a similar softness but is a cream finish and has no gold.

Deborah Lippmann Stairway to Heaven Nail Lacquer

This shade could be used for layering, but I really liked it alone. It was fun and whimsical; not your most obvious choice for holidays, but it has a wintry vibe to it. I could see it seeming more appropriate for spring, because of some of the overall lightness in color, but I just keep thinking “winter wonderland.”

Deborah Lippmann Do Ya Think I’m Sexy Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Do Ya Think I’m Sexy Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) contains hexagonal red-hued glitter suspended in a fairly thick, clear base. It’s something that would work better for layering than alone, because I couldn’t get near to opaque in two coats. You’ll really have to move and finagle with the glitter so that it is spaced evenly across the nail. I tried to work it across and into areas where there were no glitter but still had some bunch-up.
