Review: Deborah Lippmann Private Dancer

Oh happy day for me, sad day for my wallet when I finally found a store in Canada selling Deborah Lippmann polishes! I've seen and admired a lot of her polishes online but it's really hard to justify dropping $20 on a polish that you can't see for yourself.  When wandering around Yorkdale mall after the Radiohead concert was cancelled (so very actually tragic) something pinged at me out the corner of my eye from a hair salon.  Looking closer, I was expecting the standard OPI's but no...this was the ENTIRE Deborah Lippmann collection, complete with the new chromes, glitters, everything.  I plopped my bf in HMV and proceeded to drool.  My final choice?  Private Dancer from the Mirrored Chrome collection as the bottle was just stunning.  On to lots of pictures!

I was worried about how opaque this polish would be so I started off with one coat of black.  I needn't have bothered as the polish was fine on it's own and I had to spend a while cleaning up the black at the edges.  The polish itself is amazing.  It's a little lighter than it looks in the bottle but it comes up in such a strong chrome and duochrome that I can overlook that.  This is one of the first polish where it's possible to actually photograph the colour shift, it's that strong.  You're going to want to look at the close ups for this one. 








The Verdict: I love this polish.  I don't have anything else like it in my collection and between the chrome and the colour shift, I couldn't stop looking at my nails.  Now I just have to find a way NOT to go back and buy tons......

Where to Buy: $20 from Donato Salon in Yorkdale Mall

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
