Glitter nail polish is something I love in the bottle, like a gorgeous piece of sparkly jewellery. But I always tend to balk at wearing them. Not sure why. I’ve had a bottle of the beautiful Deborah Lippmann Candy Shop for awhile, sitting unworn in my collection. I decide I’m going to wear it, then chicken out and put on a sheer pink.

Well yesterday I finally cracked open the bottle to wear it. And I love it. I should have known this would happen, as the exact same thing happened with Lippmann Boom Boom Pow. At first I think “holy crap I am way too old for so much sparkle what was I thinking I need to take this off” but then it becomes “omg this is the neatest stuff ever and I love it so much I want to wear it every day”. Lippmann’s glitters are like that- they somehow manage to look elegant- which is the word I would use to describe her whole line, if I had to choose only one. Fun, playful, gorgeous and luxe and elegant. Candy Shop is the sweetest milky pink jelly base chock full of different shaped mulicoloured glitter. This is two coats of Candy Shop with Lippmann Rehydrating Base Coat under neath and Addicted To Speed quick dry top coat.
Verdict? Love. I never want to take it off.
