I recently won a couple auctions for some Lippmann polishes and I’m really loving the colors and the formula. I don’t know that they’re worth the $15 retail price tag but they were definitely worth the ebay price I paid. The seller is getting rid of her inventory so if you’re interested, look up shadowvine13. She’s running low on a lot of colors but there are still deals to be had.
I wish stupid Ohio would get some decent sunlight so I could truly capture the gunmetal glory of this polish. It’s definitely not black and I love that shimmer shows up in most lighting.
Those of you that have this polish, do you know how it compares to Chanel Noir Ceramic? I refuse to give into the Chanel frenzy that their two black polishes have created to find out. I don’t judge people that do but I can’t give in. I’ll be happy as a clam with my $5.50 Chanel Black Satin dupe, Zoya Raven. I dare someone to be able to tell the difference between the two. Spend the $5.50, find out for yourself.
Oh and I am trying a new method with this polish. I did the Stickey Sandwich. I used Creative Stickey base coat (a HG of mine), applied 3 coats of polish, another coat of Stickey and Seche Vite top coat. Sandwiching the polish between Stickey is supposed to extend the life of my mani. We’ll see. I had to use Seche Vite, which is not a favorite of mine, because my Poshe got gross and goopy. Off to Sally’s I go for a new bottle.
