Deborah Lippmann Spring and Summer 2012

Deborah Lippmann just released a quartet of new shades (well technically two for spring/resort and two for summer, but they released concurrently on her website, and I thought we could look at them all together).

Mermaid’s Dream has gotten the lion’s share of attention from print and digital press, but now that I’ve seen them all, I think the other three have gotten short shrift. I don’t know which is my favorite.

Mermaid’s Dream is a somewhat gritty shimmer/foil celadon with medium-sized blue glitter and tiny gold sparkles. On the Beach is a Saint Tropez–blue creme. Ray of Light is a sheer, dark, blue-purple jelly with orange/dull copper rainbow flakies (YUM). Sweet Dreams is a sheer jelly candy pink with red-pink-orange flakies. I love recognizing the song a Lippmann polish is named after.

I believe Ray of Light and Sweet Dreams are limited edition.

Interesting pricing note: Lippmann cremes are $16; glitters (or polishes that are “special” in some other way) are $18. I have such a strong preference for cremes that I’d never noticed the price difference.

These polishes are available with free shipping from Nordstrom.comicon (no code necessary) and NeimanMarcus.comicon (use code MAYFS).

  • Ohh love the two dreamy shades, though On the Beach looks lovely on – or maybe it’s just the contrast with your cute shoes?! ;)

    Love your shoes! Who makes them?

    I got Sweet Dreams! I love it. I ordered it from HSN though bc it was only available there for a while. I think it might have only been 16? I had noticed the price difference though… mostly because I’m drawn to her glitters! I didn’t get ray of light even though it is beautiful… I heard it was clumpy. I also avoided Mermaid’s Dream… looks too clumpy and must be a pain to remove! I’m very happy with Sweet Dreams though!

    Willi, my shoes are from Talbots, but unfortunately I bought them last summer. The style is Kiara; the color is Sunshine.

    Nice polishes, but those shoes are hot!
