Great green, Expected better coverage:/
This is my first Deborah Lippman, bought on CLEARANCE at Beauty Brands for half price! The color is beautiful, but the coverage is only meh, took three coats for full coverage, not what I expected from a $9 polish, if I had paid $18 i woulda been unhappy! still waiting to try other DL, Candyshop & Glitter in the Air in particular appeal to me.
I've never seen such a beautiful polish!
Mermaid's Dream is just gorgeous. It's a shimmery aqua blue base with a teal green flash and chunky dark teal glitter. So multi-dimensional! Great for summer. I did find that application was a bit weird though. Not bad or anything, but I definitely suggest NOT wiping off the excess polish on the brush before applying to your nails. You need as much as you can get as it doesn't spread out all that much. Full review at http://tinyurl.com/6rao55h
I'm obsessed with this color!
I've always wanted to try one of Deborah Lippmann's glitter polishes, but I didn't know which one to try first. When I saw Mermaid's Dream, I knew it was "the one". The color itself is completely stunning and unique. It is literally like Deborah Lippmann bottled up an actual mermaid. It's a beautiful seafoam green base with a golden fine shimmer to it, with small blue glitter running throughout it. The base is best described as being an iridescent seafoam green actually. It is also extremely opaque. Don't even think about layering this on top of another polish. I would say it is opaque in one coat, but I always apply two coats for kicks and giggles. The official "description" is "a glittered shimmer sea foam splendor". The polish texture is a little gritty, but a few coats of top coat will take care of that issue.
To break it down further, it costs $18 for .50 oz. of product. For reference, a MAC nail lacquer is $16 for .34 oz. of product, butter London's nail polishes are $14 for .4 oz. of product, and Zoya's nail polishes are $8 for .50 oz. of product. So yes, one could say that Deborah Lippmann is a bit overpriced (compared to Zoya), but it is right on point with other high-end nail polishes. In fact, Deborah Lippmann nail polishes are a steal compared to other high end nail polishes, as you get more product for $18. I've already gotten a bunch of compliments with this polish on my nails, and I know I'm going to wear this constantly during summer. I highly recommend it!
I love all of these. I have a number of the glittery ones and they go on without too many coats to look amazing. Always get loads of complements when I wear this nail varnish :)
Tons of Color, with a lot of class!
Deborah Lippmann make amazing polishes. The color I have is Don't Tell Mama! It goes on opaque in one coat!! For some people her polishes can seem a bit pricey. But with just the color quality and wear time. You truly get your monies worth. The packaging is gorgeous and you know it is Deborah Lippmanns from miles away because it is unique compared to other brands. This is a brand that belongs in everyones collection.
These glitter colors are perfect. I don't know how any nail polish junkie could pass these up! Happy Birthday is one of my favorites along with Across The Universe. These are a must. At least give one a try!
AMAZING! but pricey
i have 7 deborah lippmanns and i'm contemplating buying a few more! they are by far the best glitters on the market and for anyone who can avoid the nauseating price its worth it!!!!
why a nail polish is $18 i don't know but its worth it for the unique glitters, the fast dry time, the opaque jelly finish, and all the compliments you get while you wear it
