deborah lippmann Like a Virgin, Happy Birthday Swatch and Review

There are times when we wish we can capture a lasting moment whether its by picture or by memory. But other times we just miss it by a second or two and the moment flies over our head.

Lippmann being ever so happy and jolly came out with Like a Virgin and Happy Birthday. Yes, I know this has been released in the past. But hey the polishes deserve some review since both are really great. Both polishes are like captured moments inside the bottle.

Let’s first take a look at Like A Virgin. This polish is like wearing a big white fluffy dress on a wedding day, looking like an angel happily starting the rest of your life with the perfect man. The white in this bottle is so innocent and pure.

In this photo what is being depicted is that the polish on my middle finger has 2 coats whereas the ring and pinky only has 1. Even after 2 coats, I noticed that the color of my natural pinkness is still able to be seen. The polish itself is very sheer and the consistency is a very light but easy to apply.

After 3 coats of polish on each of the fingers, the nails look milky white. Even without a top coat, they look bright and super shiny.

Here’s the nails sunbathing. Very creamy…

Happy Birthday! Not you! It’s the name of our second polish. All the confetti and glitter encapsulated into this polish reminds me of the times I had Birthday bashes. It’s a very happy moment to remember.

The jelly like formula holds many different shape, size, and color glitters.

Having coated our nail buddy here once, you can see the different glitters sticking on the nail making it almost look like candy jelly. Beware… don’t eat it ’cause it ain’t edible.

The picture shows you that regardless of having a base nail color or not, Happy Birthday would fit perfectly. The contrast can be seen by the middle finger having Happy Birthday on its own whereas the ring finger and pinky (Pinky and the Brain… The white reminds me of Pinky…) have a base coat of Like A Virgin. Obviously, with Like A Virgin the glitters are more visible.

If you feel a bit more adventurous, you might want to layer another coat or two to have a much more dazzling effect.

The nail polishes by Lippmann are really fantastic especially being very complementing and enhancing each other. It’s like Bonnie and Clyde! Lippmann puts out one of the most never before seen nail polishes and can be used in conjunction with others. The polish is fluid but very smooth compared to many others. The fast drying formula is just a bonus.

    I love the Happy Birthday/Like a Virgin combo… It reminds me of yummy cake with sprinkles on it. I’m now contemplating on using this combo on my nails during my birthday! lol… Do the glitters feel gritty? Are they difficult to remove?

      really love your imagination! if someone make a cake like that, i’d totally want to give it a bite. as for your question, the glitters do feel a bit gritty but you can smooth it out with a good top coat. it wasn’t too difficult to remove. what i do is soak a cotton pad with polish remover and cover it for a minute or two. it slides right off.
