This is more of a NOTW fail, but I'm so peeved about this polish that I'm showing it anyway.
In the bottle, Some Enchanted Evening is a gorgeous pale silvery-pink glitter. On the nails, not so much.
This is what my nails looked like after four coats. Four! Clearly, this is meant to be a topcoat but what seriously annoys me is that the packaging doesn't mention that anywhere. I even looked it up on the Deborah Lippmann website and it just says, "pink salmon shimmer". Not "so damn sheer your fingernails would look dirty wearing this without an actual color underneath". Really, to call this a nail polish is almost offensive!
A huge part of the reason I'm so riled up over this is that Deborah Lippmann polishes are expensive--this one is $18 with all non-glitters being $16. I'm no stranger to expensive varnish, but if you're going to charge that much, the product better be good. And if it's highly misleading, you need to say so. This isn't even my nail polish--I'm staying with my cousins and raided their stash--but if I had paid for this and come home to discover how sheer it is, there would have been hell to pay.
This would look gorgeous over a nude, though, especially if it's a more brown-based one like Sephora by OPI Non-Fat Soy Half Caff as opposed to a pink one like Essie's Ladylike. I'm sure I'll dislike it less the more I experiment and play around with it, but for the moment, Deborah Lippmann is on my sh*t list--and I'd heard such wonderful things about her glitters too!
I know it's a popular brand, so if you've tried any of her polishes, let me know if you liked it and thought it was worth it--especially the glitters!
Stay tuned--hair product dupes coming up next!
