Lippmann designed Bad Romance because she wanted to wear glitter herself — but she wanted it to be “rich, mature, and luxurious.” 

Birchbox Breakdown

Don’t let the blingy bottle or Gaga-inspired name fool you — this slick lacquer is the most sophisticated glitter polish you’ll ever encounter. It dries to a slippery inky black with subtle (we swear) flecks of fuchsia.

How it Works

Bad Romance is a “jelly” polish, which means it is hyper-pigmented but has a sheer texture. These types of lacquers are known for their glassy finish and poptastic hues.

How to Use

Apply at least two coats, waiting for each coat to dry completely before applying the next one (so that you don’t dislodge the glittery flecks). The more coats you apply, the stronger the color and the glassier the finish. 

Psst: The best way to take off dark or sparkly nail polish is with Deborah Lippmann's super effective Stripper to Go.
