My sweet friend turned me on to Deborah Lippman nail polish. She picked out the perfect color for me, it was a bubblegum pink polish with lots of sparkle. How perfect for me. That’s how the little obsession began.
From the little yellow gift bag, I knew she picked it up at Ampersand in the Galleria . So, the next week I made a special nail polish trip. I saw the price tag – $18 per bottle, I had never spent that much on nail polish. I even thought it might be a little crazy, but I REALLY liked the polish I had tried. I justified it by reminding myself that a bottle of wine is $18 and I have no problem buying that, and it disappears much faster. Let’s just say that I have been building my collection slowly.
So, why the price tag? Well, it really does last for 7 days, the colors are not even comparable to other lines, the dry time is fast, and the lacquers are free of formaldehyde, toluene, and absolutely no animal testing.
Some of my faves are:
