Deborah Lippmann Party Mix Nail Lacquer Set – Part II

This is part II of my nail polish swatches for the Deborah Lippmann Party Mix. For part I, visit this link.

As I mentioned, there are nine polishes that comes with the set. For $39 at Sephora, this is a wonderful gift idea for any nail polish and nail art lover. Each polish in this set is about half the size of a regular sized Deborah Lippmann polish. But it’s definitely plenty if you’re looking to try out many different looks without spending $18 each.

Deborah Lippmann Whatever Lola Wants
4 coats and top coat
This pale lilac shimmer polish is just as sweet as can be. It takes several coats to get some coverage, but it’s such a lovely color to wear.

Deborah Lippmann Good Girl Gone Bad
3 coats and top coat
Looooooove! I felt so good when I swatched this on. It’s an amazing color payoff. A bold cabernet with a little shimmer. Definitely can’t go wrong with this one.

Deborah Lippmann Through the Fire
3 coats and top coat
What a gorgeous merlot red with shimmer. This is another favorite of mine from the bunch. It has that sultry dramatic feel to it. This polish paints on really well also. Love! This is definitely one to wear this holiday.

Deborah Lippmann Party Mix Nail Lacquer Set – Part I

I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to purchase another Deborah Lippmann set during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales. This one is a Limited Edition Sephora exclusive of nine different Deborah Lippmann polishes that are just perfect for all of your holiday parties. I love these mini sets because you get so many polishes to play with. This set is especially worth the price. It’s currently on sale for $39 at Sephora.com.

Since there were so many polishes, I’ve divided up the posts. The only dupe is Fashion which happens to be a favorite polish so I didn’t mind. All of the others were new for me.

So here’s what you get: Fashion, It’s Raining Men, Between the Sheets, Whatever Lola Wants, Good Girl Gone Bad, Through the Fire, 99 Luftballons, Let’s Go Crazy, and Boom Boom Pow.

Penguins and Gold Snowflakes

I just received these adorable Born Pretty Snowflake decals just in time for some cute winter nail art. These were delicate but sturdy decals, and I handled them mainly with a pair of tweezers. I did have to press them down a bit against my nail with an orange stick and sealed them with a nice layer of top coat.

I thought the gold would look nice against a soft almost white gray so I decided to go with this gorgeous piCture pOlish Lakodom, packed with a ton of subtle micro-glitter. It took me 3 coats to reach full opacity, the formula was easy to work with and did not clump up at all. Yet another excellent polish from the ladies at piCture pOlish

On my middle two fingers I used piCture pOlish Bette to create a gradient for the background of my penguins. I free-handed the penguins using Julep Daria, Julep Winter, China Glaze Liquid Leather, and China Glaze Snow.

Julep Frozen Anna’s Dress Tutorial

This last look for the Julep takeover is inspired by Anna of Frozen.

I took cues from her dress (see picture below) and adapted them into a nail art tutorial for you guys. :-) I loved the detailing in the embroidery paired with the light teal.

Plus, she has a cute little magenta cape with that she wears on occasion with the same subtle detailing along the trim.

Julep Starbucks Holiday Halfmoons

Julep generously sent us each some nail polish and their Mighty Nail & Cuticle Serum which I already use regularly. I love using it in combination with lotion and Burt’s Bees Cuticle Butter to keep my cuticles in shape.

This look is inspired by the Starbucks holiday cup. I love Starbucks’ packaging designs as well as their interior design (I’m a sucker for the reclaimed industrial aesthetic for interiors). This year features lots of bursts with subtle color contrasts. So, a lot of hot pink and dark red on bright red and lots of sparkly gold. I’ve taken their holiday cup design (I’m holding the grande cup) and adapted it to a half-moon look on my nails.

Also, have I mentioned how much I love Julep January (gorgeous bright red cream and Julep Sienna (shimmery gold)? Probably one too many times, but I absolutely love those two polishes.

Recently Starbucks opened a new shop in the Capitol Hill neighborhood here in Seattle, WA that combines the roastery and the coffee shop aspect.
