Deborah Lippmann Two of Hearts Mini Duet Set

This cute little set contains two dinky 8ml Deborah Lippmann shades encased in a super-glittery pouch, designed to match the rainbow-on-pink glitter of Candy Shop.  The milkshade pink cream is Shape of My Heart, and it complements the brash glitter of Candy Shop very well.

Candy Shop is one of those glitters Deborah Lippmann does very, very well - a tinted jelly base with plenty of glitter particles in a multitude of shapes and sizes, which layers up to make a wonderfully dimensional glitter nail that's sparkly but also a bit sophisticated.

Well, I think it's sophisticated, those of you who don't squee over sparkly things might disagree.

And here's a classic accent nail mani, with Shape of My Heart and Candy Shop, both worn alone.  Three coats of Candy Shop gets this level of glittery opacity, and a whopping four coats of Shape of My Heart was required for a streak free, fully opaque milkshake pink nail.

Granted, this colour combination isn't going to look great on all skin tones, but it looks good enough on my pale, cool skin, and would look stunning against dark skintones too.  Surprisingly, this little set is a mere £18 - the same price as a full size Lippmann polish - so if you want two great little shades and a sparkly bag (coin purse?  evening bag for people who go out with a lipstick and a debit card?), you'll be getting a good deal with this set.  Moreover, you'll be indirectly benefitting a charity - 10% of sales of this set will be donated to a breast care centre in California.  Find it now at Selfridges.
