Two of these polishes I bought specifically to use with one another. The other… I just added to make my nails look like a Barbie’s dream manicure lol.
Essie’s Lady Like is a mauve-y pink creme. It’s opaque in 2 coats and was very easy to work with. It’s a little odd of a color against my skintone, but makes a good neutral pink for those that are looking for this sort of color. It looks sort of like putty against my skin. I do like the color though.
Deborah Lippmann’s Some Enchanted Evening is a dusty pink glitter. There’s small and large pieces of glitter evenly dispersed in a clear base. There’s also even a slight holo to some of the pieces of glitter. It builds pretty nicely on the nail and doesn’t feel too thick if you do 2 coats, which is what’s below.
I actually bought both Essie’s Lady Like and Deborah Lippmann’s Some Enchanted Evening to wear together because I saw the combination on MissGlamorazzi’s blog and it looked very sweet and pretty.
Now, after that I layered two coats of OPI’s Teenage Dream, which is one of my favorite pink glitters. It’s a pretty candy pink glitter, that is very fine milled and very densely packed. Mixed in is a bigger holo glitter. 2 coats of this over the other two polishes Barbie-up the other two colors. The other two colors sort of dim the brightness of the OPI glitter and it all combines to a very fun, and cute, and girly pink manicure.
I used Nubar Foundation Base Coat and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. Essie is available at all drugstores and is about $8. Deborah Lippmann is available at Nordstrom and other department stores and vary between $16 and $18. OPI is available in salons and Ulta and varies between $8 and $9.
