And…my love for Lippmann grows again! I’ve been loving her Fall 2011 Collection and got a chance to wear her fabulous vampy burgundy this week- Single Ladies. Wow! It’s not a groundbreaking colour, but it is a classic that deserves a place in every nail polish collection. Deborah Lippmann has a gift for making her colours work on every skin tone- she keeps them neutral. Not too blue, not too yellow- just flattering, all around. This is a deep red wine tone that is quite sheer, it is almost a jelly texture. I think that adds a depth and dimension to the colour that a thick cream would not have. I needed 3 coats but could have got away with 2 in a pinch. Like Billionaire, Single Ladies is uber glossy and shiny. I added top coat two days after the mani just to freshen it up and prolong wear. Do you do this? You should. I have Addicted to Speed, her quick dry top coat, and add it every other day or so until I change the colour.

If you are a lover of vampy dramatic reds you will LOVE Single Ladies. I’m guilty of collecting various shades of red, but really, they are all different! What are some of your fave vampy shades?
