Deborah Lippmann Dark Side Of The Moon is the perfect dark vampy purple burgundy. I adore it. This is a staple shade for any nail polish lover- everyone needs a dark vamp. DSOTM is so fabulously dark it becomes a neutral. It looks as fab with jeans as it does with a little black dress. I’ve been loving it as a pedi but wow, now I adore it as a manicure! Elegant and mysterious….
The real kicker with Lippmann is the wear and longevity. A friend told me that her manicurist told her (and so on…and so on…apparently everyone knows this!) that Lippmann formula’s are designed to l a s t  and be gentle on your nails. She showed me an almost black mani that had survived longer than a week. The long-lasting formulas of Deborah Lippmann nail polishes contain green tea extracts and protein-building biotin so nails stay healthy and strong. They feature Aucoumea Klaineana extract, a natural resin from West African trees, which is known to strengthen nails and prevent ridges for smoother, healthier nails. Bonus- they are also free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, and Dibutyl Phthalates. 

That Deborah Lippmann is an interesting person– did you know she is also a jazz singer? Love it. Her personality comes through in the incredible selection of colours in her collection. She has several celebrity shades as well- fun! I already have several more shades picked out…

I am out of Lippmann base and top coats so I just grabbed the dual purpose Hard Rock base/top coat in one. Wow, this stuff is fabulous! Glassy and strong and one of the keys to making your Lippmann mani last is to use all the products. I have used the Hard Rock with Chanel and it extends the life of those manis too. What I need now is the Addicted To Speed Top Coat as my friend assures me it is THE BEST. The Rehydrating Base Coat sounds like another must-have…
