Deborah Lippmann Moon Rendezvous Nail Lacquer
Deborah Lippmann Moon Rendezvous Nail Lacquer

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.

  1. It looks strangely goopy in the swatch pictures. I thought that when I saw it on Facebook and think its looks goopy more so now that I see a bigger picture!

  2. Interesting shade, but the brush strokes put me off. Probably because today I had the hardest time applying a new O.P.I. lacquer without streaking >:-( Got me all frustrated.

    That’s actually more interesting than I thought it’d be, based on the bottle pic! But still…the finish isn’t special enough for me to shell out seventeen bucks for it. Not when I’ve already got [embarrassingly high number] of grey/slate polishes…

  4. My O.P.I. Moonraker looks like a close enough duplicate for me. Silver with slight light bluish tinge? Yeah this looks the same. OPI is loads cheaper, too!

    Hi Christine!
    I wanna ask you about what kind of illumination you use…The colors always seem so real…Do you use warm or cold lamps?
    Thank you!

    The color is gorgeous! ^^ Moon Rendezvous is a great, fitting name too.

    Eh. You can find good silver nail polish in almost every line, from high end to the cheapest drug store brand. To me, it’s just not a shade that is unique enough to spend $17 dollars on it, especially when you can find shades that are similar for well under $10.

  8. I just found your website a few days ago, and I just spent about 20 minutes reading some of your nail polish reviews. I especially love the pictures you include, because I have to see things to get an idea of what they look like. (Reading a description is good, but doesn’t give me a clear understanding of what it truly looks like). I was wondering if maybe you could put pictures of the nail polish dupes together in the review?
    Perhaps put them side by side, or one dupe under the others.
    I think seeing the dupes all together would give the readers a better way of comparing them.
    I know you post pictures of the dupes under their own review, but by the time I click on the link and look at the swatch, I’ve already forgotten what the first polish looked like! Lol
    Short term memory, I guess! Lol
    Do you think this idea might be possible?
    Thanks!
