Today I'm wearing...
Deborah Lippmann's Good Girl Gone Bad, a red wine / cranberry base with delicate magenta shimmer dusted throughout. In the picture, the shimmer really glows, but it's more delicate in real life- don't get me wrong, this baby still glows when it catches the light.
I love this interpretation of a "holiday" polish. Lots of winter collections feature literal interpretations of the winter holidays (well, really just Christmas): holly greens, Santa reds, snow man frosty whites, and tinsel glitters. Here, Lippmann has made a more oblique reference to the holidays; this reminds me of a warm velvety dress with some sparkle. As someone who doesn't celebrate Christmas, I appreciate this a lot!
Application: Like butter! Two coats is fine, but I added a third for more depth.
Top Coat: I used one coat of Poshe quick-dry top coat.
