NotD: Deborah Lippmann – Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Deborah Lippmann is famous for her glitter polishes. I don’t like glitter, alas, but this shade (created for Pat Benatar) is, as they say: “right up my street”.

A glorious “blue steel” shade (why yes, I am doing my best Zoolander impression as I type this!), this was a total dream to apply, silky, not too thick, and opaque in two coats:

In some lights it’s dark blue, in others it’s grey, and in still others it’s a gloriously twinkly delight:

Love it. I’m wearing it for a board meeting later today. I think Pat Benatar would approve.

Pics show two coats over Orly Bonder base coat and Seche Vite on top, which accounts for the tipwear. Deborah Lippmann polishes are available exclusively from House of Fraser Apothecaries in the UK.
