Deborah Lippman "Candy Shop"
Happy Halloween! I can't believe October is almost over! I had hoped to get this post up early so I could post a Halloween nail tutorial, but sadly I've been busy and it just didn't happen! Anyway to wrap up October's Breast Cancer Awareness month I decided to wear my very first Deborah Lippman nail polish! I am so excited about this nail polish! I just think it is so unique and gorgeous!
This Deborah Lippman nail polish is called "Candy Shop" and usually retails for around $16. I purchased mine at Nordstroms but I am sure there are other places that sell this polish!
So "Candy Shop" is this gorgeous glitter polish with a light pink base color! It looks really neat on and is packed with most every color of glitter under the sun! The glitter is also in several sizes! The glitter overlapped as I put the coats of polish on and look really fun! "Candy Shop" took two and a half coats of polish, which meant I did two full coats and then had to add polish to the tips of my nails. I found because if the glitter this polish took a fair amount of work to put on! And I used two coats of my usual topcoat (Orly "Sec'N'Dry") so that my nails would feel smooth and not rough! With so many layers I thought the polish would chip fairly quickly but I was wrong! I went about five days before I saw any chips!
Overall I am very impressed with this polish! It looks great once it is on and for me is worth the little extra bit of work to put it on!
EDIT: I just took "Candy Shop" off and it was very difficult! The pink polish part comes off easily but the glitter sticks like glue! It took me between 45 minutes to an hour to remove the polish! I use a popular method of nail polish where you soak a cotton ball in nail polish remover and place it on your nail and hold it for several minutes. Typically when you slide the cotton ball off nearly all of the polish comes off but in the case of Deborah Lippman's "Candy Shop" almost none of the polish came off. I still love this polish but it is a pain to take off!
