Deborah Lippmann “Dear Mr. Fantasy”

Har ni någon gång haft höga förväntningar på en skönhetsprodukt som visat sig vara liiiite av en flopp, precis nog för att göra en besviken? Precis det hände med Dear Mr. Fantasy från Deborah Lippmanns julkollektion Fantastical. Jag hoppades på en godisrosa med blå glöd, men på nageln upplever jag den snarare som en rosatonad lila. Noooooo! Jag vill inte ha lila! Lacket i sig är ren magi, två till tre lager ger full täckning och ett FANTASTISKT djup, det ser verkligen ut som julgranskulor. Om du, till motsats från mig, gillar lila nyanser så kör hårt! Du kommer älska det!

Have you had high hopes for a beauty product and then been let down just sliiighly, just enough to feel disappointed? It happened to me with Dear Mr. Fantasy from the Deborah Lippmann Fantastical holiday collection. I was hoping for a candy pink with a blue glow, but on the nails it rather reads as a pinky purple. Nooooo! I don’t want purple! The polish itself is pure magic though, two to three coats gives full coverage and a GORGEOUS depth, it really looks like a christmas ornament. If you, unlike me, like purples then go ahead! You’ll adore it!

Zoya “Channing”

Zoya Channing from the fall 2013 collection called Cashmeres & Satins, a glowing copper gem! 2-3 coats, dries fast. Could it get more perfect for fall? Don’t think so. Drool.

Zoya “Remy”

Yell if you love Zoya Charla! Zoya just released their fall collection Entice & Ignite and it contained this beauty called Remy.A deep turquoise blue base with turquoise and golden green shimmer. Darker than the classic Charla but with the same gorgeous shimmery depth. It goes on beautifully, covers with one to two coats and dries fast. I’m wearing it on both my hands and feet right now, I can’t get enough! I bought mine at Pure Cosmetic here in Gothenburg, but you can also find it on for example Nails Ave and Ebay. GO GET IT!
