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.

Deborah Lippmann Today Was a Fairytale Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Today Was a Fairytale Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “silvery blue starlight” with a glitter finish. It has a blue-tinted gray color base with silver hexagonal and smaller glitter particles. The closest dupe I could think of was China Glaze Tinsel Town, which is finer and has a lot more color coverage (plus, the base color is black). The base color reminded me of Deborah Lippmann Stormy Weather, which is far more opaque. Based on how Deborah Lippmann’s has described her glitter polishes, I would expect some sheerness, but this is a lot.

Deborah Lippmann Sweet Dreams Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Sweet Dreams Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “candied pink” and has a “3D holographic” finish. It’s a brightened, medium-dark fuchsia pink with gold-to-orange flakies. It has a jelly-like finish and look to it. I don’t have anything that looks like this, but if you had a brightened pink jelly and a flakie top coat, you could probably dupe it that way. Zoya Lara is similar in color but has a cream finish. OCC Palare is slightly bluer in tone and doesn’t have a jelly-like finish.

Deborah Lippmann Mermaid’s Dream Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Mermaid’s Dream Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “seafoam splendor.” It has a “glittered shimmer” finish. It’s a green-gold shimmered aqua-blue base with larger blue glitter. I don’t have anything similar to this to my recollection. The mixture of shimmer and glitter makes it rather different.  It was extremely pigmented; I actually thought it was a one-coater, so the swatches are done with a single coat of polish. While editing, I could see that at least one nail would have benefited from a second coat, so I’d say two coats is best unless you’re really good and get it done in one.

Deborah Lippmann On the Beach Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann On the Beach Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich riviera blue” with a cream finish. It’s a medium blue with an almost jelly-like finish; it doesn’t have the same milkiness that I’d anticipate with a cream finish but more of the squishy look of a jelly finish. NARS Koliary is brighter, a little lighter, and distinctly a cream finish. Zoya Phoebe is darker and matte. Zoya Robyn is a little lighter.

Deborah Lippmann Ray of Light Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Ray of Light Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “indigo” and it has a “3D holographic” finish. It’s a rich, deep blue-purple that really does rather close to indigo, though perhaps it’s a little closer to violet. It has holographic flakes that are really well-mixed with the base color. The holographic flakes shift from green to orange to copper to red, though it’s a subtler shift–it tends to look more coppery-red overall. I don’t know of a polish that has both this base color with the holographic flakes in it. SpaRitual Illume has the closest base color, but it is purpler, less blue-toned. ORLY Lunar Eclipse is more of a blue-violet hue, but it’s so much brighter that it looks very different in comparison. SpaRitual Twinkle is also a bit similar, though it’s bluer, and richer–it doesn’t have the jelly-like quality of Ray of Light that makes it look a bit muted. You could try a violet/indigo base color and a holographic top coat perhaps. You won’t quite get the really integrated, smooth look of this shade, but you will probably come close.
