Do Ya Think I’m Sexy, Glamorous Life

Deborah Lippmann Holiday 2011 Collection

The holidays are a time to feel good; even in New York people are a little cheerier! So it seemed only natural to create a collection of holiday colors that celebrate the spirit of the season. Each color has something joyful, from large flecks of gorgeous glinting glitter or a magnificent metallic finish that shimmers off the nail. Go ahead, play with these shades and let them add to the joy of the season.

We have seen so many large sequins in fashion I wanted to make the most full-on gold ever. SHAKE YOUR GROOVE THING is all large sequined glitter in gold with nothing but a clear base. It’s holiday in a bottle!

I did my one woman show at the famous NYC Feinsteins earlier this year and I wore a ‘couture’ red sequin Jessica Rabbit gown. Since I can’t wear that dress daily I decided to create, DO YA THINK I’M SEXY?, a color we could all wear all holiday long. We even used the shade in the hottest fall runway show Rodarte. Talk about feeling sexy when you are wearing nail color!

Lying on the beach and looking up at the stars gave me the idea for this soft but shimmering shade, STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN. Made from all large glitter, it is modern and fairy princess all at the same time.

Disco is back! I have never lost my love for disco. Believe it or not I was the Arizona state disco dancing champion. I was inspired to create I LOVE THE NIGHTLIFE ($18) by the huge disco ball that was prominent in every night club back in the day. Clear base filled with large particles of graphite glitter. Edgy and cool.

I’ve been obsessed with a rose gold Rolex watch and since I haven’t received one in my Xmas stocking I decided the next best thing would be to wear the color on my nails. It has taken me 3 years to get the luxurious finish in the shade GLAMOROUS LIFE.

GOOD GIRL GONE BAD is a rich, chic sophisticated holiday shade. Dark berry with just a hint of gold shimmer— just enough to catch the light. — Deborah Lippmann

    Really pretty!! altough I doubt I’d be spending 18$ for a nail polish.. rather pack some of the new MAC fluidlines instead

    I am in glitter heaven! Cannot wait for Stairway to Heaven and I Love the Nightlife. I was just thinking this summer how I love Happy Birthday but wished there was a better glitter topcoat to put over lighter shades. This looks perfect!a. I start buying stocking stuffers like this for myself in the fall and just store them in my husband’s closet – it takes out half the work for him;)

  3. Stephanie

    PLZZZZ Swatch these!!

  4. Lauren

    I love holiday nail lacquers!

  5. stairway to heaven it’s amazing!!!!! It’s a shame we can’t have it in Italy

      You should try kissandmakeupny.com They have these and more lippmann’s polishes. I believe is sort of an oficial retailer… They have same prices, $18 and worlwide shipping, just don’t remember how much but was cheap.

  6. Sharron

    These are really nice. Orly has a shade very similar to Glamorous Life. I forget what it’s called, but is should be easy to find. :o)

  7. Stairway to Heaven looks like a Sally Girl polish I have, but with larger glitter.
    I don’t really dig any of them too much, but I want Good Girl Gone Bad because I looove Rihanna!

  8. Nora

    Ok, so Stairway To Heaven must be mine. No option about it. Even if it weren’t for the fact that the color is insanely cool, the fact that I’m a HUGE Zeppelin fan has sold it for me!

  9. I can’t wait for Stairway to Heaven, I really hope it’s not super sheer. The Led Zeppelin song has so much sentimental meaning to me, I have to get it just for the name! <3

  10. Stairway to Heaven is gorgeous!

  11. C

  12. alyssa

  15. Carrie Ann

    Glamorous Life and Stairway to Heaven look really pretty.

  16. Saffy

    Stairway to Heaven and Do Ya Think I’m Sexy are my favourites. I can’t wait to see swatches, I hope they’re as amazing as they look in the photos.

  17. Julia

    Those glitters look gorgeous! Too expensive though.

  18. Meg

    Shake Your Groove Thing looks just like Milani Gold from the Jewel FX collection.. glad I already have the Milani!

    As for Stairway to Heaven…. NEED.

  19. Avatar of Jo Jo

    Can’t wait to see what the glitters look like if you get them to swatch. The glitter looks pretty big <3 Do Ya Think I’m Sexy looks amazing :D

  20. ZOMG! I know, hands down, I want to get Do Ya Think I’m Sexy and Stairway to Heaven. I need to see swatches of Good Girl Gone Bad to decide on that one.

    The Silver and Gold…too much like Boom Boom Pow & Today Was a Fairytale IMO. But I was disappointed in Ruby Slippers because I thought it would be more like DYTIS but instead it’s red glitter in a black base. Too much like Bad Romance, wish I had waited but oh well. Maybe I’ll franken it (is that allowed w/ DL?? LOL)

    Thanks for the preview! Let the stalking begin!!

      She does it at the runway shows,so why not?lol.I love ALL of them;maybe that will be a bday present to myself….th big 50 deserves that!!

  21. CynthiaCCC

    mmmm, Good Girl Gone Bad is calling my name. I’d also like to see a swatch of Do You Think I’m Sexy, because I’m having a hard time imagining how that texture would look on the nail.

  22. Erin

    I want Stairway to Heaven!! I’ve never spent that much on a nail polish before, but I’m considering it!

  23. Nicole

    Lippmann glitters are so fun. However, I do secretly wish she would release more unique duochromes instead. I want more polishes along the lines of ‘Wicked Game.’

  24. alexis

    I NEED ALL OF THESE.

    esecially good girl gone bad.

  25. Moni

    Deborah has the best glitters! I always look forward to her holiday polishes!

  26. Luana

    Poor me, brazilian girl, too far from this beauties… :(

  27. I really like Stairway to Heaven and Good Girl Gone Bad. I’ve never tried Deborah Lippmann polish before, I might need to give it a go!

  28. megan

  29. Joanna

  30. “Do You Think I’m Sexy?” (the fierce red one with lots sparkles!) has my name written all over it.

    I just wish I could see swatches for all of them. :)
