NOTD: Deborah Lippmann – Bad Romance

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 14 - 2011

Now… this is more like it!

After some mild disappointment after seeing the Deborah Lippmann Autumn offerings this year, I’m glad to be back on cloud nine with one her beautiful glitters from last Autumn, Bad Romance (£14.00).

Purple glitter hexagons and regular glitter suspended in a black jelly base makes for an eye-catching combination!  Sure, it’s a little vampy for this time of year but rules are there to be broken yes?!

Opaque in three coats, it needs some careful placement to ensure even distribution of the glitter, thankfully not too tedious with this one as the particles moved around quite happily without causing any drag whilst still wet.  The only negative is that with such a dark shade, the tipwear becomes noticeable after the 2nd day.  No chipping on me though!

In the UK, Deborah Lippmann polishes are exclusively available online and instore at House of Fraser.

    Ohhh it’s so so pretty! I desperately want some of these polishes but they’re so so pricey ;__;

  13. Gemx says:

    Bad romance is one of my most favourite polishes! Love the Deborah Lippman glitters :) I tend to put this over a black base colour so that I don’t end up with scary thick glitter nails when I slop it on 😛 xx

      …I thought I was the only one who put it over a black creme! For some reason, it sticks to my nails like glue and the tinfoil trick didn’t cut it.

      Anyways, this is one of my favorite shades, and (so far) the only Lippmann polish I’ve bought. They really do know how to make a good glitter.

    Ooooh I think my head is spinning and my heart is skipping a beat with this one! Purple + Black=gorgeous!

    I haven’t tried DL polishes before – this one is just lovely and looks great against your skintone too. :)

    I love this colour, but it’s a bit pricey so I bought Revlon’s LE ‘Facets of Fuchsia’ at the weekend – think it’s on offer in Boots right now for about £7 and it’s a dead ringer! Love the DL polishes!
