What It Is:
Deborah Lippmann Staccato Nail Polish Collection in Rockin’ Robin, I’m Not Edible and Polka Dots and Moonbeams*
Why This Should Be in Your Bag:
Deborah Lippmann polishes are the creme de la creme, so when she decided to hope on the speckled nail trend, I knew I had to try them!
How To Use It:
Nail polish is pretty easy to apply, but I did find a trick with these bad boys. Because of the dots, I found painting one thinner coat on first and then following up with a thicker coat and even dabbing on the polish in certain areas to deposit more dots gave me the best results.
CC Rating: B+
I love this speckled nail trend and am so happy to have had the opportunity to try out Deborah Lippmann’s offerings. All three shades made application really easy and deposited a sufficient amount of dots. Polka Dots and Moonbeams was the only shade I didn’t care for; the base wasn’t as opaque as the other two and I didn’t like the stark white shade with the black dots. I would have loved to see a blue or purple in this collection in its place! I also wish that the size of the dots in the polish was varied, like I’ve seen some other brands do.
As much as I enjoyed these polishes, I don’t know that they’re worth the $19 price tag. Illamasqua does a similiar polish, as does Hard Candy (for less than $4!). I haven’t tried either of those polishes and while the Deborah Lippmann ones performed up to standards and exceptionally well, I don’t know if many college girls would want to spend $19 on a trendy polish. I would suggest splurging for something more classic or really unique!
The Staccato Collection is available at the Deborah Lippmann website for $19 each!
