NOTD: Lippmann Glitter in the Air

Ah, good old Deborah Lippmann - we can always be assured that any glitter polish added to her already comprehensive range will be a breath of fresh air.  Glitter in the Air - part of the spring offering from the brand - doesn't disappoint.  Inspired by Pink's performance at the Grammys (apparently she wore a sheer sparkling bodysuit), it's a milky, sheer bluish base with blue and rose pink glitter.  As usual, the glitter varies in size: the largest cerulean blue and rose pink particles may be the most noticeable, but there's also a light sprinkling of tiny silvery blue, opalescent glitter in the background.

The base is very sheer - making this a layering polish rather than one you can wear alone.  Above, I've applied it over two coats of Leighton Denny's Up in the Air (I do like a bit of synchronism!), which is a cool silver with lilac undertones.  Two coats of Lippmann over the top gets you the sparse-yet-sparkly cover of glitter as shown.

Gorgeous.  I think I'll be wearing this over a wide variety of base colours this spring - certainly makes for a nice break from the back-to-back pastels spring usually brings for nails!

If you like the look of this, you'll find it at House of Fraser's Apothecary, where it will cost an eye watering (but totally worth it in my mind) £16.

  1. I love how the glitter looks layered over this colour. Such grown up glitter! Gorgeous x

  2. That's a good way of putting it - it is a very grown up glitter!

  3. So beautiful and unique! I'd never usually consider spending £16 on a polish, but if I had the cash I wouldn't think twice!
