Some of these are more royal, some dustier, but the whole idea of fashion is to make it your own so if some of these work better with your outfit or just flat look better on your skin tone, then I think you do it. You're just making the trend work better for you.
Clearly this is going to be pretty picture heavy. These are all just swatches, there is no prep - no base coat or anything. These are all two coats, good or bad, because I think that is what most of us usually do. Three gives a better saturation of color but two will usually get you out the door satisfactorily. I'm not going to really talk a lot about these except to overview and let you make up your own minds about what you like. If there is something notable I will...note it. Otherwise, I am hoping the pictures pretty well show you.
My intro to Deborah Lippmann's was this color. I fell in love with it. I'm sorry the bottom picture is being a wanker. Deborah Lippmann Lady Sings the Blues. A blue jelly with the famous Lippmann chunky glitter. Definitely navy and definitely good if you want some bling in your trend.
Expect to see a full post on this in time. No, I haven't worn it yet, but My Raptor...or whatever else you choose to believe in. Don't you think it needs it's own post? It needs a monument.
Lastly, the one I have had forever that is absolutely the trend?
I meant to do a comparison of this and Time Traveler but I didn't get it done. You know, in case you love one of these but have the other. This was a lot of swatches, my cuticles and nails were not thanking me and I think I just kind of wanted to be done so I could rub some shea butter into my abused fingers. You can see I was getting a little sloppy. Flood the cuticle much? **facepalm**
So here those two are again, side by side, to allow you to compare and contrast all day. Not as good as a comparison post, but still gives you an idea.
I hope this was helpful for you! Don't go out and buy new if you can't afford it. Shop your Stash, lads!
There were a few others, but holding to my "If you can't actively buy it from a legitimate seller you won't see it at the time of posting" doctrine, I didn't post them. I know the point is to shop your stash, but that doesn't mean you won't see something you love. If you do, I want you to be able to get it.
I hope you like this new idea. If you do, please let me know, leave a comment. If you don't, please let me know and leave a comment!
