Purple Week: Deborah Lippmann Let's Go Crazy

If you haven't been following, the fabulous Amanda challenged me to give purple a chance by devoting an entire week to it. In return, she's been spending this week in teal. This is the last day of our challenge, so I decided to finish on a high note with a great polish for the weekend, Deborah Lippmann Let's Go Crazy!

Like Candy Shop and Forget You, Let's Go Crazy incorporates Lippmann's oft-copied Happy Birthday rainbow glitter mixture, this time in a deep, eggplant-purple, jelly base. The glitter coverage didn't seem as dense here as with Forget You, but that's not a complaint by any means. There's still a generous amount of colourful glitter, and it's equally well suspended. I'm wearing two coats here over Revlon Colorstay Bold Sangria (a red-leaning purple) in order to a) save on this awesome polish, and b) provide extra coverage at the tips, where these jelly mixes sometimes appear a bit thin, but I've also seen it built up very nicely without any undies at all.

I do love a nice, vampy shade of just about anything, and when you mix in rainbow glitter and name it after an awesome song by the fabsexulous Prince, you've pretty much got me sold. Well played, Ms. Lippmann. Well played indeed.

I'm downright giddy at the thought of wearing any old colour I want to again, but I have to concede that I'm much less averse to purple than I was at the start of this challenge. There are definitely shades I like more than others, such as the dusty plum of Below Deck, but I was pleasantly surprised with how much I loved the bright, grape Dress Up 27 Suede, thanks to its amazing finish. Well played to you too, Amanda!

    1. Hahaha, thank you, Sam! Purple Week is over (phew!), but it won't be the last of the purples I post--Amanda has convinced me that this colour and I can actually get along. ;)

  4. I think this is the best swatch I've see of Let's go Crazy. Most of the time the glitters look murky. I might actually want to buy it now.

    1. Thank you, Jenni!! I think wearing this over undies helped with that because fewer coats of glitter made smoothing and shining with top coat a lot easier. Ooh, I could totally see this on you too! :D
