I'm a huge fan of Deborah Lippmann. Her polishes are just so en trend and the bottles are chic as all get out. But the new Gel Lab Pro line has completely won my heart (see my review of the Spring line here for my first love letter). On top of the impossibly fantastic new brush -- this thing literally covers the nail in one stroke -- the formula promises a world of benefits which include improvements to nail:
Health: evening primrose, keratin, biotin, green tea extract, aucoumea, nonychosine F
Wear: platinum powder, epoxy resin
Shine: silk fibers, plexi glass
Who could ask for more?
Well even if you couldn't, Ms. Lippmann delivers with this four piece set of fun summer shades inspired by all things 1950s (how cute, right?!). Take a look!
Beauty School Dropout
Anyone else have the song stuck in their head now? Ah, I love Grease! Anyway, what's a '50s collection without a good bubblegum pink? And this pink is just so perfect in that it's not super Barbie doll (thank God, I'm just so over those) and not super muted which makes for a great medium shade for someone wanting a fun pop of color without looking too young or over the top. I've already worn this baby quite a bit and love it to pieces!
My Boyfriend's Back
Another song now stuck in my head! MBB is such a unique shade for summer, right? I love how all these brands are reinventing summer this year. A medium greyed out slate blue, this is what I'd call navy for summer. While I probably would save this beauty for fall, the formula is still too good not to play with while you have it lying around.
Anyone for a bath? Haha. This is like the quintessential beach color, amiright? This is gem is an almost neon aqua blue creme that is just a delight. Seriously, just gorgeous and flattering on ANY SKIN TONE. I dare anyone to prove me wrong on this one. You may not like the color but it won't look bad on a single solitary soul.
And the titular polish is this beauty, a coral creamsicle color and the lone shimmer creme in the bunch. However, I use the term shimmer loosely because the shimmer is very very slight and is barely noticeable on the nail. It does give it an amazing shine though and what would ordinarily be a basic pink toned salmony orange turns into a real head turner. Please note though that Happy Days is a tad brighter in real life.
The Deborah Lippmann Happy Days Collection is available now and can be purchased at Barneys New York, Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Sephora, and deborahlippman.com. Each polish retails for $20 USD.
