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.

On the Beach was a little fussy to work with; the consistency was on the watery side, slightly runny. The initial coat I applied went on streaky, though the second coat was better and hid most of the streaky finish of the first one. With the way it came out after two coats, I’d opt for three for more opaque, even results. Deborah Lippmann’s formula typically wears a full week on me with very minor tip wear but no chipping.

I was not impressed with the consistency or color payoff of this shade--I did not feel it was up to the standards that Deborah Lippmann has set for herself. I normally enjoy her formula, but this was a miss for me.
