Lippmann Collection - Rhapsody In White

In honor of the Oscars, I decided to take a cue from Kate Winslet and try Lippmann Rhapsody In White.

What's good: The color is quite stunning and elegant, I think. White is an unexpected twist, particularly for fancy events. Celebrities tend to wear neutral nails or vampy nails at award shows - I don't really qualify this as either vampy or neutral.

What's bad: Smooth your nails out before you put this on - this will show EVERY flaw. Application can be streaky with this frosty polish, that's one reason why I usually stay away from frosts. As you can see from my picture, this polish is not forgiving of mistakes or smoothing errors. Make sure your base coat is PERFECT.

The Wear: So far I'd say this wears pretty well.

Bottom Line: Recommended, if white's your thing. You can always Konad a design over it.
