Polish - Lippmann Collection's Marquee Moon


You know I've been waiting for this one for a long while. Initial reviews had me really worried. Funky Chunky made me decide not to get Marquee Moon. But the recent 15% off sale mad me change my mind and just go for it.

Thank goodness I had low expectations. The sad thing is, I don't want to give up on this one. I fully intend to send a note to Lippmann Collection and ask them for application advice. But from what Deborah says on her blog I'm not expecting a warm response (or a helpful one). I will report back if I hear anything. But emailing her has been helpful in the past. So who knows.

Color: Reminded me of OPI Rinse Charming (I hope I'm thinking of the right silver) with little hexigon sequins.

Application
: What a nightmare! I put one coat on, and it's not quite enough maybe. Put two on and it destroys the look I entirely. In my opinion, if you can get one good coat on - keep it. And don't do anything else to it. You'll ruin it going back over the previously laid sequins.

Wear: Well, a half hour after taking this picture I had a big old giant chip in my forefinger.

The Bottom Line: I'd feel more comfortable recommending OPI's Rinse Charming and having you lay a bunch of sequins on your nails by hand at this point. But I'm not giving up!

Off to email Ms. Lippmann...
