At DramaQueenie’s request I swatched some of my other Lippmann polishes. Of the four, Nefertiti is the only color that I consider truly unique. That being said, they all have a great depth of color and offer 2 coat coverage. The application is flawless. It flows from the brush so well that I hardly need to think about what I’m doing.
Black Coffee is just a bit lighter than my bottle of Misa Chocolate Icing and a bit more bronze. Chocolate Icing is supposed to be a dupe for Lippmann Brown Eyed Girl. I would say they’re different enough to own both Brown Eyed Girl and Black Coffee but I would probably say that to justify the purchase regardless.
Nefertiti is an understated gold. It’s more matte with micro sparkles that only come out in the light. It’s a way of doing gold without doing GOLD. For comparison sake, I would say that OPI I Get A Kick Out of Gold is more champagne.
Love For Sale is my least favorite of the group. It’s pretty but not something I would recommend. There are so many interesting shades from Lippmann that if you need a purpley wine shade, save your money and get a less expensive brand. Possibly something like OPI Don’t Wine… Yukon Do It! or China Glaze Drama Queen.
Makin’ Whoopee is a color I received as a bonus in mini size. I wasn’t expecting it which makes it all the more fun. It’s not a color I would have picked but I’m glad I have it. It leaves a very glassy finish, even without a topcoat and has an amazing glow about it. I’ve been racking my brain and can’t come up with a comparison for it. Feel free to make suggestions for twins to this and any of the colors.
Finally, a bottle pic. If only I had 6 fingers to swatch them all on one hand.
