It seems like it’s been an eternity since I swatched a nail collection so this morning I have Deborah Lippmann Whisper for spring 2015!
This collection, as the name may imply, is a soft, pale collection featuring four new sheer shades. The inspiration behind the collection was the Honor’s S/S 2015 runway show, which included soft lights going through chiffon fabric that the models wore. Deborah thought it looked calm and peaceful so she came up with these quiet shades that are perfect for spring.
I swatched all four of these shades over her ridge-filler base coat so I could get them as even as possible. My nails don’t ever look perfect with pale shades like this (stupid ridges) unless I do twelve million coats. I did use three coats for all of these to get them as even and saturated as I could.
A Fine Romance is a pearly champagne/pink shimmer.
Like Dreamers Do is a pale bisque creme.
Misty Morning is a pale blue/grey creme.
Chantilly Lace is a light iridescent pink shimmer.
As you can see even with the ridge-filler base coat and three coats they aren’t completely even on me. But that’s MY problem, this always happens with me with sheer shades, no matter the brand. They are meant to be sheer so they definitely fit the bill. I think they are pretty, and my favorites are Misty Morning and Chantilly Lace. But I also think they would look much better on someone else than they do on me!
Love a sheer shade for spring or prefer more pigmentation?
