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.

The color coverage is mostly opaque after two coats, but there’s some translucency from the jelly-like finish. It is a thicker polish (and I’d say thicker than a lot of jelly finishes), though it didn’t seem to have any real problems applying smoothly and evenly. It did seem to take longer than usual to dry, though.  I tested out the wear of Sweet Dreams, and it wore well for seven days without chipping, though there was minor tip wear, which is on par for what I normally see when I wear one of Deborah Lippmann’s polishes.

I think the formula might be better if it was a little thinned out, because it is rather thick in consistency, and though it didn't seem to make application difficult, it did result in a longer drying time.
