Deborah Lippmann Liquid Metals gift set: Swatch & Review

deborah-lippmann-liquid-metal

Long time, no see. That’s becoming too familiar a phrase around here, isn’t it? This post was originally meant to be up, oh, before Christmas. I think I need to start splitting up reviews of any collection more than four polishes because clearly I cannot handle longer posts! But, I put so much work into this one that I couldn’t not share it with you guys. Also, as of writing this, Deborah Lippmann still has this set available! The Liquid Metals set is a six piece collection of, surprise, metallic polishes! These are not chromes, just good old fashioned metallics. They are in the Gel Lab Pro formula, which for all intents and purposes means you get a paddle brush. It really helps with the appearance of brushstrokes, although the polishes do have varying degrees of brushstroke visibility. It’s a long one and you know how I always have a bunch of pictures, so we really need to get started. I highly recommend listening to the songs these polishes are named after that I have helpfully linked – there are some good ones!

Deborah Lippmann All Fired Up Fall 2018: Swatch & Review

Deborah-Lippmann-All-Fired-Up

There is no better way to kick off fall than with new polishes from Deborah Lippmann! It is rare that I actually grab an entire collection, but this one has a combination of unique and too-pretty-to-resist shades, so my autumn-loving, jewel tone worshipping self had to have ’em all. I am happy to report that they are even prettier in person than I thought they would be and are all two coats or less! The All Fired Up collection is in the gel lab pro formula. To me, this means a great paddle brush and putting up more dough per bottle, but if the system works for you, then that is great and I am all for it. I personally am not here for polish longevity, I just want a good color on my nails to amuse me for a few days before I replace it. These all fit that bill! I hope you will join me below the cut because Deborah Lippmann really got in the seasonal spirit and our nails are all the better for it.
