Hello! Today I did a simple freehand manicure to compliment F.U.N. Lacquer Happy Ending. Happy Ending is a lovely blurple (blue x purple) holographic with tiny flecks of gold glitter. The color is beautiful and most stunning under direct light as shown in my photos. Just a small word of warning, this polish does contain glitter so like any other glitter polish, it may require some extra effort to remove. I did not experience any staining.
Like Rathy mentioned in her previous post, we were sent some beautiful polishes from Il Etait Un Vernis to try. The formula for these were absolutely excellent and a charm to work with. I think my favorite of the bunch would have to be Something To Remember. I love this mauve-y purple color, and thought it would look perfect with a little accent of gold. I tried some nail stamping for the first time using Born Pretty’s stamping plate item #17266.
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!
And there you have it! All nine polishes from the Deborah Lippmann Party Mix set available at Sephora.com. You can also purchase the full sized bottles of any of these colors which retail between $18-20.

From Julep‘s July Maven 2014 box, I received Bombshell box that included Beverly (the beautiful dark purple creme pictured in this post) and Lissa (turquoise).
The formula for Beverly is pretty awesome. I have to say, in general, the formula in the more recent boxes have been a huge improvement in comparison to some of the boxes I received last year. This was fully opaque after 2 thin-medium coats and worked well as a base for my tape mani. The glitter I layered on top was from a sample I received in a purchase from Rainbow Honey in December, I haven’t seen it officially released on Rainbow Honey yet but I hope she does soon because it’s quite pretty.

As Daisy mentioned, we received some lovely polishes to swatch for you!
Color Club Uptown Girl 3 coats and a top coat
First up for me is Color Club’s Uptown Girl, which is a lovely purple. I think 2 coats actually were pretty good, but I painted a third to even things out. I actually really liked the consistency on this one. It wasn’t too thick but coated well.
Color Club Killer Curves 3 coats and a top coat
Killer Curves is a definite good one for autumn. It’s a deep deep rich reddish brown purplish color. I used 3 coats to even things out. But the color is glorious and really shines. The consistency is smooth enough to apply easily. Overall I’m really liking the Color Club polishes.
