SWATCH REVIEW: DEBORAH LIPPMANN STACCATO

Happy Monday! We have some exciting news to share with you all. Polish You Pretty has teamed up with Holt Renfrew to bring you #ManicureMonday! We will be featuring swatch reviews & nail art with the amazing polishes they carry in store – YSL, Deborah Lippmann, Dior, etc. Check for our #ManicureMonday post on Holt Renfrew’s Instagram, Twitter + Facebook!

Today we take a look at the Deborah Lippmann Staccato collection. Speckled polishes are popping up all over the place – Illamasqua, Hard Candy also have followed the trend this season. Deborah Lippmann takes glitter to another level once again combining black glitter with traditional soft pastel hues. This collection creates a beautiful pairing of opposites – soft crème polishes with edgy black hexagonal glitter. The Staccato collection has an innovative finish available in three shades reminiscent of your favourites – cotton candy, oreo and mint chocolate chip ice-creams!

“When creating this formula, I was thinking of ways to make black glitter wearable. I like how the glitter pops with a crème base, and I love that we took very wearable spring shades and gave them more pizzazz – even a bit of an edge,” said Deborah.IMG_1221

The formula was the same for all 3 polishes – we used 2 coats for polish for full coverage. There was an even distribution of glitter & it stayed put when adding the second coat. We paired each swatch with the new Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab base coat (Coat of Arms) + top coat (Shining Armor). The base coat protected our nails underneath, we noticed when removing the glitter are nails were still in great shape (rare after all that scrubbing/tinfoil). The top coat left an amazing gel-like shine & dried extremely fast. IMG_1212

Polka Dots & Moonbeams: This polish has a milky white crème based infused with black glitter. We love the contrast between the black & white.IMG_1194IMG_1196

I’m Not Edible: A bright poppy-pink, this polish is a perfect pairing for summer! IMG_1214IMG_1220

Rockin Robin: Just like mint-chocolate chip ice-cream, we can’t get enough of this shade.IMG_1205IMG_1207

We were having so much fun playing around with the shades we wanted to try a quick ombre nail art. OBSESSED. We love how these turned out! Like Strawberry Swirl ice-cream with sprinkles.IMG_1230IMG_1225IMG_1228

What do you think of the Deborah Lippmann Staccato collection? Textured polishes are so big this season! We love that speckled finish & think it’s worth the buy. Deborah Lippmann products are available at www.deborahlippmann.com & Holt Renfrew.

  1. […] up in most speckled collections out there. We tried the Deborah Lippmann Rockin’ Robin shade (see here) and fell in love, but understand that you can’t always break the bank for a trendy polish. […]
