Fall Blitzkrieg: Lippmann Collection Holiday 2008 Swatches

I just want to remind everyone that the last day to enter The First Ever Polish Addict Giveaway for the Color Club Musique Collection is today. The winner will be selected tomorrow. : )

With that said, I’m pretty smitten with the new Lippmann Collection Holiday releases. What I particular like about this collection is that there is one color that is absolutely perfect for every major category in nail polish preference. There is a color for dainty lovers, the shimmer reds/pinks lovers, the vampy lovers, and the bling lovers. (Guess where I belong?)

Lippmann Collection Icing on the Cake is the light pink version of Lippmann Collection Rhapsody in White. Unfortunately, it has the same brush stroke issues but it is very pretty and delicate. I’ve come to the conclusion that nothing can be done about the brush stroke issues inherent to frosties. *Sigh*. This swatch is 3 coats.

Lippmann Collection Holiday is a red jelly with red and fuchsia microglitter. The shimmeriness is much more obvious in person than in my image above. It adds depth and glow to the bright base red. Holida is very color-appropriate moniker. Of the four releases in this collection, Holiday is definitely the most traditional Holiday-type color. I foresee this one being pretty popular during the Winter. My swatch is 4 coats because I’m not a fan of VPL. However, the application is *perfect* so if you don’t hate VPL, this color is definitely wearable at 2 coats.

Lippmann Collection Maneater. I’m the idiot that will buy a color just because I like the name. So I really LOVE it when an awesome color meets a badass name. A deep dark vampy brown called Maneater? Ummm…. I’m all over that one. Maneater has a jelly quality too it but it’s such a rich brown that it’s almost black on the nail – still gorgeous though. This swatch is 3 coats.

Lippmann Collection Superstar is hands down my FAVORITE from this collection. Copper Glitter in jelly brown base, it’s almost like Deborah Lippmann peeked into my dreams. Superstar has fairly chunky glitter in it but I got pretty good smoothness with 2 coats of Seche Vite. This swatch is two coats.

Scrangie has swatches of this collection on her site too. Lippmann Collection is available online or at some Bath & Body Work locations.


Disclosure: This collection was sent to me for review by Lippmann Collection.

    Thanks for the pictures. It’s sad that Icing on the Cake is so streaky because the color itself is so beautiful!

    Happy Birthday!

    Call me crazy, but I love the streakyness of Icing on the Cake. I think it makes it look delicate.

    Have an awesome b’day S! : )

    Thank you for sharing you collections with all of us. Your swatches are inspiring. You realy should receive a commission from nail polish companies for your wonderful promotion!

    Elma – It’s not really streaky, the application is great but the brush strokes are fairly pronounced. I think it’s just the nature of frosties.

    Nailmaster – LOL. Thank you, I’m flattered.

    Sanna – Thank you! It was a weird day for me. I think I’m just getting too old to enjoy birthdays lol. ; )

    Hailey – Thank you! And I *knew* you would like Holiday. It’s a very ‘you’ color. : )

    VampyVarnish – Thank you! : )

    Mazoo – I agree with that. I would prefer to not have them but I don’t really think they detract from the beauty of the nail polish.

    Jason – lol. No commission necessary. I do it for my sick twisted love of polish. I know you feel me on that one. And thank you!

    Hi! I see it’s someone’s birthday..HAPPY BIRTHDAY ;-)

    I would like to seek the advice of experts..I’m absolutely loving “Maneater”. Is it OK to start wearing dark polish, or is it still too early in the season? Also, is it an absolute no no to paint my toes dark but have french on my finger nails? Please shed some light! I thought it was SO important to match, but my nail technician says not at all.

  10. pretear Says:

    Jaenna – Yes, it’s absolutely okay to start wearing dark colors now. And personally I say matching tips and toes is not necessary. I never do. : )

  11. Jaenna Says:

    Thank you so much :)

  12. Millie Says:

    I too am a sucker for names of polishes. I just bought Bad Romance, Superstar and Today Was A Fairytale. I’m so happy I did get Superstar! I didn’t plan it and it’s one of my top ten polishes in my own collection! :) I think I’ll have to get Maneater and Ruby Red Slippers too. ;)

    All nail colors are really attractive and bold …but i like the first one.

    [...] Passion 4 Fashion is a dark chocolate creme. Everyone has been wondering how this stacks up against Lippmann Maneater. Lippmann is a much darker ‘almost black’. Passion 4 Fashion is as dark as chocolate [...]
