Deborah Lippmann Very Berry-Shades of Berries Limited Edition set for Fall 2016…Juicy • Tangy • Bold
UPDATE, GREAT NEWS! 11/2/16: I just got word that one of the colors from the Very Berry gift set will be offered in full size, Cranberry Kiss and a portiion will go to Product (Red) in the fight against AIDS! http://www.deborahlippmann.com/product-red-splash
I’m just going to cut to the chase right now and give you my unsolicited opinion and conclusion of these six little berrylicious wonders. Amazing! They may be slated for Fall shades, but dude, I’m loving them now. Let’s take a look.
After the success of Undressed, Shades of Nude and Sweets for My Sweet,–Shades of Pastel, and Pretty in Pink –Shades of Pink, DL confirmed the rollout of her sell-out limited edition sets.
You’ll be so Pretty in Pink with this new collection by Deborah Lippmann. Pretty In Pink is a limited edition set so order yours soon! I love these travel size bottles and no worries, the brushes are still easy to use.
This versatile pink set has a shade of pink for any occasion; whether office-appropriate or a night out on the town.
Get ready to make a dental appointment because these six sweeter than candy shades from Deborah Lippmann will make you drool! The Sweets For My Sweet – Shades of Pastel (Limited Edition fashion sized set) are full coverage and irresistible. Heavenly. Scrumptious. Delicate. Deborah Lippmann reps describe it as, “Treat yourself to some nail candy with this collection of sweet pastel shades. Long-wearing and quick-drying, it’s all the indulgence you could ever ask for — and totally cavity-free.” I agree! Let’s see these confectionary-inspired pastels.
Let’s start with the pastel orange creme, Sugar, Sugar.
Next up, one of the prettiest pastel yellow cremes I have every tried. Lemon Drop!
Every lacquer collection needs a delicate pastel green, Sweet Pea. And with a great formula and this sort of opacity, I say, “gimme”!
Oh, those baby blues! My Boy Lollipop is a sweet little pastel blue number. Also half of the Pantone 2016 duo.
Like flowers in the Spring, here is a scrumptious little lavender creme, All Day Sucker.
The other half of the oh-so-delicate pair for Pantone 2016, here is the mouth-watering pale pink, Candy Girl.
Well, that’s it for now sweeties! Are you hungry yet?! I am quite pleased with this Limited Edition set. I don’t know how long they will be available, so you might want to order these asap.
Conclusion: I love all these pastels and they are as opaque as you can get. Five of the formulas were perfect medium in thickness and super easy to apply. However I did have more issues applying the orange pastel, Sugar, Sugar. It was thicker but still doable. All six were quick drying but gave plenty of time to work with them. These shades remind me of those Jordan Almonds! Love!!!
First, I’d like to tell you all Merry Christmas and happy holidays! It’s been a busy time for us here at the Duncan household. We just moved in to our new house a week before Thanksgiving, had holiday company, then poor little ole me, been sick ever since. Good news is, I’m getting better and I managed somehow to decorate for Christmas. My strength is returning just in time!

I’d also like to share this fabulous trio that is, “Dependable. Gentle. Trustworthy.”! It’s the Deborah Lippmann Treat Me Right gift set (LE).

Here is a recap of swatches!
The set is described as: “The perfect nude nail is at your fingertips…in six all new elegant shades. Our set of 6 full coverage fashion shades flatter any skin tone, creating a graceful, polished (no pun intended) look. From work to weekend, looking natural has never been so glam.” DL also states, “…Contrary to the nudes of the past, there is no one-shade fits all proposition; Deborah expertly developed each color to flatter any skin tone for a graceful, polished look.”
I can tell you, All About That Base (is 7-free) not only acts as a corrector and concealer (great for yellowed nails), it provides an amazing base to keep your painted nails looking their tip-top best longer. The Cuticle Oil is a necessity for all well-groomed fingertips and the Addicted to Speed Super Quick-Drying Top Coat provides a high shine option while protecting your mani from smears, smudges and scratches. Everything you need at home for a salon-pro look.
I still hold the same Conclusion! I love the shades and finish of this set. I found a slight difference in the formulas. Although all are fully pigmented and each shade took 2 coats, I found the darker 3 polishes formulas to be better than the paler 3. I don’t think it’s my imagination as I’ve swatched many collections and sometimes because of the shade, it’s just going to HAVE to be different in application due to pigments. The first three shades, Flesh For Fantasy, Totally Nude and Born This Way were thicker and took a bit more finesse to apply without streaks on first coat, let fully dry then apply second. Second coats self levels and dried fully opaque and glossy. The last three (darker shades), Bare It All, Natural Woman and Skin Deep, were thinner (not thin) and struck a perfect balance of opacity and smooth application. Glossy on finish and great to apply. I had no trouble with the brushes in these petites, as they are full size brushes. Favorite shades were Bare It All and Skin Deep.
