The Lippmanns: A Nail Polish Review
For months now I have promised my sweet friend, Annie, that I would review Lippman polishes. I am ready to make good on that promise.
I have quite a few Lippman's, from vampies (Dark Side of the Moon, Walk Away Renee, Hit Me w/ Your Best Shot), to delicate little whispers (Diamonds and Pearls), some brights (Daytripper), and some in-betweens. I love them all, and find them worth the money for two reasons: beautiful colors, and decent staying power. Even the dark vampies are "pretty", if that makes sense. Nothing garish or scary about them. The polishes go on easily, and are always a little deeper, a little richer, a little something more than similar colors on the market.
I am lazy. I will never do more than slap on two coats of nail polish. No top coat, no base coat, no ridge filler, etc. Just slap on two coats of polish and go. Despite this cavalier attitude, I find that a Lippman manicure lasts a good work week, and yes, I do dishes. I occasionally touch up with another coat after about three days. Not bad.
