To keep your mani looking sleek, prep and set your polish with Deborah Lippman’s Hard Rock Base & Top Coat.

Deborah Lippmann

Birchbox Breakdown

The artist formerly known as Prince inspired this daring new purple lacquer. Named after the singer’s 1984 hit (yes, we know our musical trivia), it turns up the volume with tons of multi-colored glitter. But don’t let the name scare you—the solid base is dark enough to keep the sparkles from feeling over-the-top.

How to Use

This polish combines a deep aubergine base with rainbow-hued glitter. The smooth formula dries to a super shiny, sparkly finish.

Very nice

This is a sheer purplish polish with fun multi-colored glitter that are in different sizes! It gives the impression that you layered it with several different polishes to get the look but you only need one or two coats of this stuff for it to look great and sparkly. It also pairs really well with Deborah Lipmann's Maniac!

doesn't last

I wish these colors lasted. The selection of colors and the idea behind a formaldehyde free nail polish is so appealing, however it never lasts for more than a day. The formula is extremely runny, so when you apply it on your nail it is almost always a gunk glob of a mess. If they can fix their glitter to polish radio, these would be my first choice in nail polish.

Chipped IMMEDIATELY
Purchased

I was so excited to get this nail polish because I thought that it looked so, so pretty online, and I'd waited to buy it for a long time. I went to the salon to get my nails done, brought this along (so you know it wasn't a user error), and they looked great! Unfortunately, they began chipping THAT NIGHT, and continued to chip the day after that and the day after that. I'm so disappointed in this product, especially when you factor in the price.

a little bit disappointing
Purchased

I have had my eye on this nail polish for a long time. I love nail polish and I love prince. I love purple, and I love glitter. How could it possibly go wrong?

It is pretty. Not sure it was quite worth the splurge. The formula is less than satisfactory for me. It took 3 coats over a base coat to achieve the desired coverage and level of sparkle. The purple is muddy and muted seeming almost brown or black from a distance, and the glitters sort of sink into the polish, not really catching the light, just sort of making it lumpy and looking like it has some multicolored chunks.

Also, even though I used a top coat that was supposed to be chip resistant, the manicure chipped within 2-3 days on multiple fingers. I kept redoing it one finger at a time trying to hold things together because I am accustomed to my manis that I do myself lasting a bit longer most of the time. This one didn't hold up.

I'm currently trying this product on my toes...appears to at least be holding up a big better against chips...but overall, it isn't quite all I had dreamed of.

Amazing!
Purchased

This was my first Deborah Lippmann nail polish purchase, and i wasn't disappointed one bit! I had heard that her glitter polishes were amazing--and they are! This polish has a beautiful array of various purple hue glitters that stay on the nail--it doesn't chip for days. It is just a lovely grownup glitter polish. :)

glitter
Purchased

This is the most glitter I have seen in a nail polish, plus even one coat is dark so you don't have to apply a million times to get a deep color.

Dislike
Purchased

I did not like how this went on, the coverage was onto great and every finger had different amounts of glitter. I had high hopes but was disappointed.

The best glitter polish on the market

Are you tired of buying glittery nailpolishes that skimp on glitter? Well, Deb Lippmann loads it on, for maximum effect. It's nothing short of dazzling. For extra oomph, try a color (purple, gray) underneath the glitter polish. At the very least, use a layer of clear polish first - you don't want the glitter to stick to your nails when you try to get it off. It can take a little longer to remove because of all the glitter, but who cares - it's a small price to pay for fabulous disco nails.

purple sparkles - what else do you need?
Purchased

Deborah Lippman polishes are expensive but worth it. This polish looks great with a clear or a matte top coat. The colored base means you don't have to use several layers to get the solid polish look you want.
