Oh my goodness I am in LOVE with this polish!!!!! Deborah Lippmann Superstar is copper glitter in a rich, dark brown jelly base. It matches my hair for crying out loud! It applied so well. This is my first super glittery polish and I thought it might be tricky but it applied perfectly in two […]

Graphite didn’t wow me quite as much as Peridot reviewed here. Don’t get me wrong. It’s a beautiful polish but there is just nothing exceptional about it for me to justify the price completely. I do love how Chanel Le Vernis apply and wear though so given time I’m sure Graphite will grow on me […]

Morning Rose is a very demure pink. You would think it wouldn’t be that exciting but there is something about it […]
