Nail of the Day - Lippmann Hit Me With Your Best Shot

This is such a great polish you get two pictures:

Easily in my Top Ten, HMWYBS is such a comfortable color. It's a black but not quite, leaning toward gunmetal (of course). It looks chic, touch, effortless (if you have great nails, which mine aren't), and much like my cat taking a nap - it won't move once it's set down. Awesome. A+, Deborah!

The Color: Gunmetal gray slashed through with multicolor micro glitter. The glitter is so small you can't see it unless it's up close and the light is shining just right. But it's enough for to know the color isn't flat and to give the color a little extra kick in the shine department (Chanel - you need to take some notes here because Vendetta could have used some of this magic).

The Formula: Opaque in 2 coats. I don't like the handle on the Lippmann brush, but for whatever reason I get a better application with fewer mistakes. Maybe it's because I think this polish is so special.

The Wear: Like iron.

The Bottom Line: If you own only one dark gray polish, make it this one. I got it in a swap, but I'd gladly fork over the cash. I would also keep this polish over all of my blacks or almost blacks except maybe OPI Black Tie Optional (a.k.a roach tips). That's saying something!

Get it with the 25% off deal!
