Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.5 oz.) has a black-burgundy jelly base with regular fuchsia glitter and hexagonal glitter.  I was able to get a very opaque look with three coats, but I didn’t get as many hexagonal pieces as I’d like on each nail.  The key is definitely to let each coat dry longer, so that you don’t drag any of the glitter elsewhere.  I’d also recommend doing one or two strokes for each coat, because each time you move the brush, you can displace some of the glitter, and get a patchier look.  The drying time seemed a little shorter than average, and it had a slightly glossy finish even without a top coat.
