As a New Years’ Eve manicure, I went with the glitter again this year. I also picked from one of my favorite brands of the year, Deborah Lippmann.
Since no post of mine would be complete without a tangent, here is today’s:
When I was younger, one of my friends once had a dark, dark blue shimmery polish with a gold glitter on top. It was very pretty and a combination that I always liked. It reminded me of Van Gogh’s Night Sky. I loved it so much that I eventually borrowed (and never returned, now that I think of it) the two polishes and only used them together as my favorite combo ever for like 8 years.
Recently I bought Deborah Lippmann’s Lady Sings The Blues and Boom Boom Pow (as well as a few others), not with the intention of wearing them together, but because Nordstrom was having this amazing BOGO sale on Deborah Lippmann and these were two of my most wanted colors from the brand.
Lady Sings The Blues is a very deep, night sky like almost jelly base with a silver, or possibly light blue?, multi-sized glitter.
Boom Boom Pow is a very delicate gold shimmer with bigger gold glitter and is said to have 24k Gold Dust mixed into it.
Together, they took me back to that nail polish combo and I loved it so much that I wore it for about a week and through New Year’s Eve.
I used 2 coats of Lady Sings The Blues, as it’s a pretty pigmented and opaque polish. Then I just topped it off with one coat of Boom Boom Pow. I used it over Nubar Foundation Base Coat and under Poshe Dry Fast Top Coat.
Deborah Lippmann polishes are between $16 and $20 (generally it’s $16 for creme, $18 for glitter, $20 for polishes with “special” ingredients like 24k gold dust). They can be found on their website and at Nordstrom.
