Deborah Lippmann knows the way into my wallet heart. Her perfect formulas, amazing brushes and fantastic colours always speak to me. They basically say “buy me”. So I do! One of her brights is quickly becoming a favourite of mine for a perfect retro red-coral shade that is worthy of a Mad Men manicure. Megan Draper has been sporting some gorgeous corals lately and I am happy to emulate that gorgeous woman. We can dream, right?
In direct sunlight- super bright!
Coral is fun and punchy, and a nice light version of the classic red nail. Red works year round but after a long winter, I feel the need to really lighten things up. This is one of those hard to photograph colours. On her website, the bottle pictured makes the colour look pink. Some online photos make it look hot pink or red. So I will stick with my photos and let you be the judge when you see it in real life. The formula is a cream/jelly hybrid, as you can see in the photo, two coats allow a bit of VNL (visible nail line) to peek through. Verdict? Love. Daytripper is going to get a lot of love from me this summer. Zou Bisou Bisou!
