Deborah Lippmann 80’s Rewind for summer 2014 has arrived.
This limited edition collection features six bright nail shades with a creme finish, and all with names that harken back to the good old days of the 80’s. Note: I am missing Don’t Stop Believin’, which is a hot orange shade.
Ahhh the 80’s. When colors were neon, pants were parachute and videos were actually shown on MTV. Earrings were HUGE, shoulder pads were in and there actually was such a thing as bubblegum flavored soda. Hair was big, blue eyeshadow was hot and everyone had a Walkman.
Yep those were the days.
Whip It is a bright pink. This one is on the more sheer side and you can see some unevenness with the two coats I used. I think a third would help with that.
Walking On Sunshine is a bright lemon yellow. This is a great, super saturated yellow shade. It’s on the cooler side, which works for my skintone. It covered really nicely in two coats.
She Drives Me Crazy is a teal green. I really like this shade though I did have to use three thin coats to get it completely even on me.
Video Killed The Radio Star is a vivid blue. This color would not come out in photos at all the way it looks in real life. It’s way brighter and deeper. Hard to explain but it’s a great shade. This was two coats.
Maniac is a bright purple. Lovely shade and a really nice formula that covered evenly with two coats.
Overall: This is a fun collection of bright cremes. For most of these the formula was pretty good and they covered nicely with two coats. I did find Whip It to be the most sheer and uneven. As far as the uniqueness of the shades, I’m not sure that’s really there. Video Killed The Radio Star is probably the most unique one. I do think Walking On Sunshine had a really nice formula, especially for a yellow, and She Drives Me Crazy is pretty.
