Nail of the Day: Deborah Lippmann Good Girl Gone Bad

Today's NOTD is Deborah Lippmann's Good Girl Gone Bad.  This is plum/maroon shade with microshimmer, and I love the name not only because of the song it is named after, but also because I think the color is perfect for it.  This polish is nice and opaque too, one coat was almost enough for full coverage.

natural light, 2 coats

The formulation was really easy to work with as well, except I wasn't happy about how it dried.  This polish dries to a semi-matte finish, meaning if you don't use a top coat, it is going to be very flat.  However, even after applying TWO coats of my glossiest top coat, it still had a very flat appearance (see above).  I swear this polish is a magical top coat sponge, because the top coat just disappeared within minutes.  I like my nails glossy enough to see my reflection in them, so this was a definite con for me.

As far as dupes go, the closest one I can think of is the OPI Katy Perry "The One That Got Away", however they are a bit different.  TOTGA (ha! love that acronym) is more red/pink, and the microshimmer is even more micro.

If you love the color and don't care about glossiness, you would probably really like this polish.  If you are a stickler about glossy nails, this isn't for you (especially with its $18 price tag).

Do you care if your nails are glossy or not?

  3. In your picture it almost looks like OPIs Pepe's Purple Passion. I have exactly the same problem with that ones finish. But I just love the color so much...
