Christian Louboutin – Rouge Louboutin

What more can I say. Absolutely fabulous! As a collector of fine things and a lover of nail polish, I just had to have this. The bottle is gorgeous and the red… I love the red. I actually own a pair of Christian Louboutin heels, so this paired nicely with it. And what better way to celebrate the holidays than with a perfect red polish manicure.

Deborah Lippmann Party Mix Nail Lacquer Set – Part III

The last three polishes from the Deborah Lippmann Party Mix set that I’ll be swatching are all glitter polishes. And if you know Deborah Lippmann polishes, you know that her glitters are amazing. For Part I of the swatches, visit this link. For Part II, visit this link.

And now on to the swatches!

Deborah Lippmann 99 Luftballons
3 coats and top coat
Some of Deborah Lippmann’s glitters either work well on their own, or need a help with a solid base. I am swatching it without a base color here. But it might be easier to top this glitter over a red or dark pink polish. It took about 3-4 heavy coats to get good coverage, which tends to get a little clumpy. 99 Luftballons is a multicolor glitter polish in a sheer red jelly base. Not a huge fan. I think I prefer Happy Birthday instead which I used here.

Deborah Lippmann Let’s Go Crazy
3 coats and top coat
This royal purple glitter polish is so much fun. This glitter actually paints on fairly decent because the base is a little more opaque when layered. It can definitely wear on its own, or as a top coat.

Deborah Lippmann Boom Boom Pow
3 coats and top coat
Lovely!!! This is another one of my favorites among her glitters. It’s such a pretty 24 karat gold of sparkle. It wears lovely on its own, but I think it looks amazing as a top coat on a nude base or any other color for that matter. Love it!

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.
