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.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I find myself underwhelmed by the color of it. I don’t see Deborah LIppmann as a brand to stock up on basic colors with, but colors that are more unique or have wow to them. This one doesn’t. Throw in iffy formula and I can’t get excited about it.
