Nail of the Day – Deborah Lippmann Don’t Tell Mamma

By Get Lippie

I saw this online at House of Fraser and had to have it, it looked so gorgeous!  And, in the bottle it is, a deep dark blackened green, with incredible micro-shimmer.

As with my last Lippmann polish, application was perfect, smooth and opaque within two coats, and the wear was great, it lasted four days without chipping and I was very happy with it …

but ….

Where’s the shimmer?  It’s just black on the nails! Just occasionally, depending on the light, the angle of viewing, even the time of day, you get a hint of the shimmer, but most of the time it’s just black.  A good black, and a lovely polish, to be sure, but I was disappointed all the same. Gorgeous, just not quite gorgeous enough, I’m afraid.  Especially at £14 a bottle!

The Fine Print: Bought this with cash.  Not my cash, of course, but it still counts.
