Deborah Lippmann Staccato Nail Collection for Spring 2013 Swatches & Review

Deborah Lippmann Spring 2013

The Deborah Lippmann Staccato Nail Collection is here, new for spring, and available for sale now on her site!

This collection includes three new shades, all candy-colored, milky bases with small specks of black hexagonal glitter throughout. They are very similar to the Hard Candy Candy Sprinkles shades, except those ones have more colors of glitter in them. Like the Hard Candy ones, these were all two coats for complete coverage.

As far as application, it’s pretty much a breeze. You get a lot of glitter with each coat, and it doesn’t move around much with a second coat, if at all. It stays put! What I like it some of the glitter kind of sinks into the background making it look greyish and some stays on top, which looks obviously black.

Rockin’ Robin is a mint green base with black hex glitter. This 100% reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream, and I want to EAT IT! But I won’t. ;)

Polka Dots And Moonbeams has a milky white base with black hex glitter. This one seems to have more glitter in it than the other two. Super cute!

Overall: I love these! I really like all three shades, but what I really like is that they were easy to apply, not a messy nightmare. They are a wee bit messy to remove but not as bad as most glitters. They all cover in two coats easily. If I had to pick one favorite though it would be Rockin’ Robin.

Now are these as good as the MUCH less expensive ones from Hard Candy? Well it just depends on your preferences. The Hard Candy ones have 3+ shades of glitter in them, these just one. Also the base of these is slightly more pigmented than the Hard Candy ones.

Availability: Deborah Lippmann.

Pricing: $19.00 for .50 oz.

What are your thoughts on these? Love them or leave them?
