When it comes to holiday nails, I’m all, “Go Glitter or Go Home!” And no one throws a glitter party quite like Deborah Lippmann. She is the queen of festive but chic glitter nail polish and while her creations are often duplicated, you have to give snaps to the originator.
This season, she is bucking tradition by giving us multiple mini polish sets to get our holiday nail party on. The Deborah Lippmann Space Oddity Trio with its pairing of eye catching sparklers and work friendly neutral really caught my eye. Keep reading to see why.
Formula & Application: Deborah Lippmann nail polish is 5-Free (DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor) and cruelty-free. Her signature glass bottle is one of the most recognizable shapes in the industry and she maintains that look in the mini version. The curved cap was designed with professional manicurists in mind as it is shaped to rest comfortably between your fingers. The Lippmann brush is short, round and average in width with flexible bristles that easily fan out over the nail plate.
The lone creme in this collection, Planet Rock, is smooth, buttery and packed with pigment. You only need two coats for full coverage. The two glitters surprised me as they have so much metallic shimmer in their base that you can wear them solo with only three coats. You can still see the nail a bit but the reflective-ness of the glitter and shimmer masks that in most lighting.
Application Tip: To get a nice smattering of the larger sequins on the nail, I suggest applying using my Dab, Dip & Glide Technique.
Deborah Lippmann Planet Rock is a creamy mix of stone and taupe. It has some purple and yellow undertones and that keep it on the cool spectrum so a shade like Chanel Particuliere looks brown in comparison.
Deborah Lippmann Baby I’m A Star has a sheer based filled with golden shimmer and rosy pink hexagonal glitter of varying sizes. The overall effect is that of a rose gold glitter. Think Deborah Lippmann Some Enchanted Evening meets Boom Boom Pow (minus the sequins). And I LOVE it over Planet Rock. It brings some warmth to the shade.
Deborah Lippmann When Lightening Strikes has a silvery sheer base that looks very icy on the nail. It’s packed with mini holographic glitter particles, that resemble multi-colored twinkle lights, and white hexagonal glitter in multiple sizes. It gives Planet Rock a frosted appearance when layered over top.
Bottom Line: This set is ideal for the working woman who has to wear neutrals during the day but wants an easy transition for holiday parties at the end of the week. We’re talking the nail version of the day-to-night eye look. Planet Rock is unique to my collection and since I prefer cooler taupes it’s a win-win for me and I can’t wait to play more with the glitters as they really bring the pizzazz.
The Deborah Lippmann Space Oddity Trio is available now online at DeborahLippmann.com, BergdorfGoodman.com, LordandTaylor.com, Nordstrom.com, NeimanMarcus.com and at their physical stores though availability will vary by location. The Space Oddity Trio retails for $29 for three .27oz bottles.
