Deborah Lippmann; Glitter Love!

Right. House of Fraser's Apothecary has a lot to answer for. For the last few months, they have been quietly whispering to me, calling to me & enabling my need, a yearning if you will, for the prettiest of the prettiest nail varnishes. These shouldn't be worn. These should be displayed in the fancy guest bathroom for all your visitors to "oooh" and "aaahhh" over.

A wee while ago, I introduced you to Bad Romance, by Deborah Lippmann. For those who are new to me & my blog, I may seem like an innocent blue-eyed, blonde whose butter wouldn't melt, but in reality, I still haven't quite let go of my rock/alternative tendencies of my early 20s. So Bad Romance was instant love. A hardcore black jelly with the most divine hot pink/purple glitter. But my eye had already been caught by Ruby Red Slippers. It would seem that House of Fraser can read my actual mind as last week an email landed on my MacBook... "there is a little parcel in the post, on it's way to you...". Who am I to argue?

Please, indulge in some Deborah Lippmann glitter polish porn...

'Glitter in The Air' is like a baby's breath blue, with the most romantic, softest pink & pale blue glitter running through. It's like the Cinderella to the Wicked Stepsisters and it tiptoes gently across your nails, demure, polite & very very pretty.

The Wicked Stepsisters. These shades are like the 'other woman'. High heels, red lips, bad-ass attitude. I don't want to wear these on my nails; I want to turn these bottles in brooches & wear them pinned to my blazer. These bottles are like gems - absolutely stunning to look at & just scream collectors items. I know this probably doesn't make much sense, but it's a bad case of love!

There's still so many shades I want to try & so many combinations to be had! Do you own any? How do you wear yours? Any tips?

These polishes are available from House of Fraser Apothecary either in store or online from £14. Next on my list is 'Happy Birthday'


  1. Drooling now... so lush so glittery I want I want.

  2. @MsRed so so lovely aren't they?

  3. They're so amazing looking. I can't decide which one I like the best.

  4. This is one pretty post!!! I love DL polishes, i have 3 at the moment but i can't stop going back into HOF and making mental lists of which ones i want next!! Bad Romance is definitely near the top :)

  5. Usually I hate glitters but these are stunning!

  6. I am absolutely loving these. Can't wait to see what they look like on your nails and if they go on as smooth as they look like they will.

  7. My purse is not going to thank you for this post... my nails will though ;)
