Deborah Lippmann Moon Rendezvous Nail Lacquer ($17.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “faded slate-blue shimmer.” It’s a muted, cool-toned blue shot through with silver and icy blue shimmer. There’s a definite gray-ish cast to it that gives it that “slate-blue” coloring as described. I thought the finish was more metallic than shimmer, though. Butter London Lady Muck has a completely different finish, and it looks a bit bluer because it has less shimmer/sheen. Rescue Beauty Lounge Concrete Jungle is a cream, but it has a similar gray-blue coloring.

I couldn’t think of another polish that I’ve covered that has this color with this kind of finish.  It has a very metallic finish, and as a result, there are brush strokes or threads of metallic shimmer that are visible even in muted, natural light. On the plus side, it has a faster drying time than the average polish, which tends to be true of metallic finishes as well.  The consistency wasn’t thick or really thin, but there was a slight wateriness to the formula that took some getting used to.  I was going to redo these swatches, but I’m short on time (and long on polishes to review) and I know Deborah Lippmann’s spring shades are going fast.  I had no trouble getting full, opaque color coverage in two coats, though.  I recommend waiting for each coat to dry, because it is unforgiving if you try to apply the next coat too soon–it will pull.  I typically get a week of wear out of Deborah Lippmann’s polishes.
