Keep a packet of Deborah Lippmann the Stripper to Go in your purse for chipped polish emergencies.

Deborah Lippmann

Birchbox Breakdown

Sure, classic beiges, pale pinks, and fire-engine reds are great polish go-to’s, but as we’ve grown up a little, we’ve realized that green is actually way more versatile than we originally thought. And this rich emerald lacquer with a touch of shimmer is the ultimate in sophistication and glamour. Consider us green polish converts—this luxe shade is definitely a beauty “do.”

How it Works

Polish goes on evenly with Lippmann’s signature brush and bottle, designed for easy, controlled application. Ingredients like biotin, green tea, and aucoumea resin (a natural tree resin from West Africa) strengthen and condition nails. Deborah Lippmann products are free of harmful ingredients like toluene, camphor, and formaldehyde, and are never tested on animals.

How to Use

Start with a layer of base coat to set a smooth foundation for polish. Apply one to two coats of polish, or until you’ve reached your desired opacity. Finish with a top coat for shine, protection, and long-lasting wear.

Love it.

This color comes out so intensely forest green - exactly as indicated. It's rich in color and doesn't require 1000 coats to get to the bottle shade. I painted two just to make sure it was even on my nails and it would last.

It's not the most durable polish I've ever used but it's very good. Birchbox is right that green is more versatile than you might think - it goes well with my skin tone and while it's certainly not neutral in the way that it blends into the background, it has a similar effect to dark red or black polish. It gives some interest without becoming a focal point.

I wouldn't have minded if it did.

Nice Dark Green

I really like this polish. It is darker than I expected but still a really nice shade of green! Only needed one coat and it went on nicely.

Nice formula

The color is great, and the formula is good (as all Deborah Lippmann polishes are), but I guess I was hoping to be wowed by the color. The color is OK, and I'm happy with my purchase, but the green is darker than I was hoping it would be. It looks almost black sometimes.

Not the color I wanted

Really wanted to love this nail polish but sadly turned out not to be as emerald green as I thought it would. Will be returning this as it's not pretty enough to justify the price.

This is my first Deborah Lippmann nail polish, and I'm absolutely in love with it. The color is a beautiful green, and it's really long-lasting, especially when paired with Deborah Lippmann's base and top coats, which I recently purchased. The fact that this is a three-free brand is perfect -- I'll definitely be buying more!
