Today I have for you a collection of 4 polishes from Deborah Lippmann! I had been eagerly awaiting their release when I first heard about the collection (like I always do with the new Lippmann Collections!) And surprise, surprise… I love these. :) These are inspired by 4 of the characters on the HBO show “Girls.” I personally have never seen the show but I’ve heard lots of good things and I have been wanting to see it for a while now! I’m sure I will start watching very soon!
“Hannah” is described as a “hapless hunter green.” It’s a beautiful hunter green creme with blue undertones. I don’t own anything similar to this and the formula is divine. This is 2 coats.
“Jessa” is described as “bohemian burgundy,” a deep burgundy crelly (creme/jelly hybrid.) Since it is a crelly, it’s a bit on the sheer side, I used 3 coats here with a careful hand, but it may require 4, depending on your polishing style.
I also wore “Jessa” on a date night with my husband. I did this mani in about 10 – 15 minutes, so it’s not perfect but I was obsessed with it! This polish made my hands look pale and Victorian or something, if that makes sense! I loved it. This pic is when I wore it that day. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw me post it already! For the accent nail, I used Tokidoki “Savana.”
“Marnie” is described as a “prim & proper pink.” It’s a delicate shade of bubblegum pink. This one is also a crelly, but leans more towards a jelly than a creme. It’s quite sheer. It was a bit problematic for me. It was quite streaky until the 4th coat which evened it out pretty well although there were still a few slightly bald spots. I did try wearing it sheer but it looked odd because of the unevenness. It seemed as though it couldn’t decide whether it wanted to be a creme or a jelly. It did look really pretty when all was said and done but getting there was a bit troublesome. This is 4 coats.
“Shoshanna” is my absolute faveeeeeee of the group. This is basically perfection in a bottle. It is described as a “Virtuous Vivid Violet.” I would describe it as a purple leaning periwinkle creme with a very subtle but elegant ribbon of silver running through it. The formula was on point. I could wear this all day, every day. ADORE! This is 3 coats. (Side note: I think OPI “You’re Such A Budapest” is a possible dupe for this. I will compare them after I post my swatches of the OPI Euro Centrale Collection.)
This collection, which is Limited Edition and comes as a box set can be purchased at LippmannCollection.com. Even though “Marnie” was a bit of a problem for me, I still highly recommend this set. The colors really are unique and gorgeous! More new favorites to add to my collection. :)
