I am very excited to show you a new Deborah Lippmann today. A few months ago she gave everyone a sneak peek picture on Facebook of a few of her new colors colors for Spring / Resort. Four of which have been released (Mermaid’s Dream, On The Beach, Sweet Dreams) and this was the mystery polish. The other day I was stalking HSN and there it was ‘Ray of Light’ I didn’t even give it a second thought before I put it in my virtual basket, and all of a sudden it was on its way to me!
I will say that this was one of the fastest shipping experiences I’ve ever had.. I ordered this and a few other Deborah Lippmann’s from HSN on Saturday, and they came Tuesday. WOO! That’s service! Okay I’ll shut up now and let you look at the pics!
So I think that Ray of Light is super pretty, I’ll give it that. But I will not give it two thumbs up on the formula, wanna know why? It sucked. It was so thick and goopy, but at the same time it wasn’t a nightmare to apply, it was just really thick. Like, annoyingly thick. I used two coats for the photos above.
In the bottle the flakes look like that have a slight color shift, but on the nail they are predominantly copper. I like that they kind of sink into the blue polish too, it gives a pretty and subtle effect. It does dry bumpy, but adding a top coat shines it right up and smooths out the bumps.
What do you guys think about Ray of Light? Will you be picking it up? I think that this is already sold out on HSN, but as far as I know it is still available on the Deborah Lippmann website. Hurry before it’s gone!
