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.
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.
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.
