Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Like

Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Like Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.5 fl. oz.) is described as a “playful periwinkle.” It’s a really rich, dark periwinkle, and to me, I see indigo–that perfect mix of blue and violet that gives you something different. I used two coats for swatches, and there is a hint of visible nail line, so I would say three is likely the ideal strategy here. It’s described as a cream finish, but it is more like a cream meets jelly–it has that slightly squishy look of a jelly.

Deborah Lippmann’s cream polishes last about a week on me with a good top/base coat (I prefer Zoya’s for both). The formula on this is a little watery, but I wouldn’t say it ended up being sheer or runny, as it still applied evenly and didn’t pull in places. Essie Smooth Sailing is lighter and has shimmer but reminded me of it nonetheless. SpaRitual Illume has a jelly-like appearance, but it leans more purple.

The color is interesting, which is why I think it will grab people's attention. At $16, it's certainly not an impulse buy, but at least the color isn't something we see all of the time. The jelly-cream finish may also be a draw!
