Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year everyone! :-) Hope you all were able to celebrate with friends or family. This is my third Chinese New Year away from home and this year we decided to do hot pot with a group a friends. For my nails I decided to do a look inspired by Fan Bing Bing’s outfit in The Empress of China. I haven’t seen the series yet, but the outfits look stunning! I’ve heard mixed reviews of the series so I’m a little hesitant to commit to watching it.

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!
