Deborah Lippmann Forget You

I had fun playing with nail art for New Year's Eve, but this...this!...would have been the perfect polish for the occasion: Deborah Lippmann Forget You. It's fireworks in the night sky, glitz and glamour, and a fabulous blend of playful fun and sexy sophistication.

Just as DL Happy Birthday spawned a legion of clones from any number of brands, Lippmann has several polishes incorporating the Happy Birthday glitter mix. This one, Forget You, has its rainbow of glitter suspended in a black jelly base. I swatched this beauty once before but didn't photograph it, as by the time I got the jelly sufficiently even and opaque (especially at the tips), the glitter had chunked up quite a bit. So, this time I wore two coats over a base of Nfu Oh JS01, a perfectly matching black jelly polish, and for me it made all the difference.

For such a glitter-heavy polish, application really is smooth. After two coats, only the tiniest bit of dabbing seemed necessary to get a nice, even spread of glitter (or at least one that's sufficiently random without leaving any very large, empty areas). It probably wouldn't be difficult to franken something similar with some rainbow glitter, a black creme, and some clear to 'jelly' it up, but it would be hard to replicate this great balance. The glitter shows very well and colourfully, even as it's suspended, only partially submerged, in the black.

I did want to wait until my nails had grown out a bit more before wearing this one, in order to show it off a bit better, but then I keep saying that to myself about everything I pick up this week. I'm sure I'll be wearing it again, though--Forget You is most definitely a keeper!

  2. I love the abundance of glitter and the depth. This polish is truly perfection! I think it looks great on your nail length! I find darker shades harder to wear and more 'scary' on longer lengths :)

    1. Thank you, Brittney! I'm definitely enjoying some of my darker untried/unswatched polishes while my nails are shorter right now, and strangely, while I'm all complaining about how short they are, I have some pics I took right before they all broke off, and I'm surprised by how almost too-long they look to me in comparison. Short of another massive break (touch wood!), I think I'm going to try to concentrate more on shape than length while they grow and see if I can't be happier with a shorter, but better shaped, nail this time around. ^_^

    1. Thanks! DL is definitely in a not-for-every-day range. I don't mind treating myself to some of her unique glitter/flake polishes, but I still can't quite talk myself into investing that much in her cremes, despite how gorgeous they are. :p

  10. This is stunning! It always amazes me when companies use colored bases and still get the glitter to stand out. Especially when that base color is black!
