Searching for a classic hue? Try Lippmann’s My Old Flame, a retro-looking true red. 

Deborah Lippmann

Birchbox Breakdown

When incorporating bold hues and new trends into our wardrobe seems too daunting (and costly), we turn to Deborah Lippmann’s latest nail polish creations. Part of the celeb manicurist’s Spring 2013 collection, this glittery aqua shade is right on point. Plus, the chic lacquer is free of toluene, formaldehyde, and DBP.

How it Works

This high-resistance, high-protection varnish combines a shiny, Caribbean sea-colored base with reflective silver, pale green, and bright blue glitter. The result? An eye-catching mani that will look hip all season long.

How to Use

Start with a base layer, then apply polish one coat at a time, allowing several minutes of drying time in between. You’ll want at least two coats—plus a top coat to keep your nails chip-free.

Textured Finish!
Purchased

This polish is absolutely beautiful but I was not expecting it to be a texturized finish. When dry it has a texture that is comparable to the liquid sand polishes by OPI (I think that's what they're called...). I wasn't too keen on that. A top coat does not smooth out the surface either. Other than the texture of the finish this polish is still very pretty and it lasts fairly long. I didn't have chipping for 4-5 days which is pretty amazing since I am pretty hard on my nails. It also is kind of difficult to remove. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes matte and textured nail polish. If you don't like that kind of finish I would probably pass on this one.

Not satisfied like expecting

I went by reviews on this purchase thinking I would love it but I was sadly disappointed. It's not smooth like I prefer my polish to be. It honestly reminds me of mixing sand with glue and then painting my nails. I used a base coat and top coat also by Deborah Lippmann... it did nothing to help the polish. Keeping it on for a few days in hopes it will grow on me since it is pricey. Fingers crossed!

Amazing coverage

This was a splurge for me and it was worth every penny. The color is such a wonderful blend of sky blue and ocean. The consistency is a dream to apply. The sparkles they used isn't so harsh that it takes elbow grease to remove either. It's such a lovely blend of green and blue, the color combination just works. I have yet to see a sparkly mix that works great in the winter and transitions beautifully into spring like this one. Treat yourself ladies, it goes with every skin tone!

Great color

This color is really nice because it incorporates shimmer and glitter, providing lots of textures. The color quality is great too.

Love! Love! Love!

I love this nail polish! One coat is great if you like just a little pizazz, but three coats works wonders if you want to look like you have mermaids on your fingers! When I wear this color, I get so many compliments on my nails! Best Color EVER!!

Mermaid Eyes
Purchased

I love all of Deborah Lippmann's nail lacquer for the colors and because it's formaldehyde free. The color is actually a little lighter than the photo, I wanted something deeper. I still love the product but not the one I was looking for, it's a little to light for me.

Love it. Love it.

I'm so into the "mermaid" look this summer that Deborah has got it totally going on with this color! It's great paired with her Gel Lab base coat and top coat for a awesome wet shine!! LOVE LOVE IT!
