NOTD: Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday

Yeh baby! Finally got my hands on this after so freaking long. Costing £16, it's the most I've ever spent on a nail polish and probably the only time I ever will. Move over Chanel, your polishes are pretty but they chip and fade like a mofo. I wish I could afford to pay £14 a pop for the standard Deborah Lippmann polishes because they swatch like a dream. Most have a jelly like finish which I love.

Anyway, if you don't like glitter polishes then you're probably recoiling in disgust right now because this is like a multicoloured disco ball exploded on your nails. I love the chunky glitter particles and don't think I've seen anything else like it.

My cuticles and skin around my fingers are awful, I apologise. These photos show about three coats and it's a bit patchy but I prefer that way. I found that you have to "place" the glitter on the second coat rather than just brushing it on. Haven't got a clue about how long it lasts yet because I only bought this 2 hours ago.

It's still in stock on the HoF website but who knows how long that will last so get it whilst you can if you want it.


  1. I've been after this polish for a while! I love OPI Mad As A Hatter but it's a much finer multi-glitter. Looks awesome on you!

    One of my favourite bloggers shows it's a great layering polish too - can see it working with so many cremes underneath! so almost worth the moola?


    Hope you're well chick! x

  2. I LOVE this and WANT this sooo much but I honestly can not spend over £10 on a nail polish!

  3. @The Postcolonial Rabbit - I'll check it out, thanks Nazneen! xxx

    @Shortiee31 - Same here, the most I've spent on polish is probably £6 off the top of my head? But I've wanted this for SO long, so I had to get it

  4. This would look AMAZING over a black polish!


  5. That second photo is so professional!

    This looks really nice but I can't see myself spending so much on a polish and I feel it's one that looks nicer in the bottle than it does on your fingers (i.e. the concentration of glitter).

    There is a blogger who makes her own polishes like this, I can't remember her name but they look really nice. I'll let you know when I find her blog again.

  6. Nice Nails color!


  7. I think it's worth the money, haven't seen any glitter polish like this. I suppose you could make your own like the post above. You only need glitter and clear varnish.... might give it a try xx
