Deborah Lippmann Roar Collection for Fall ’15 is wild!

The Deborah Lippmann Roar (Limited Edition) Collection: Fierce. Passionate. Empowered. I’ve had the great fortune to be working with the Deborah Lippmann PR group and today I’ll be sharing the Roar Collection for Fall 2015, available now. There are four polishes in the set, (also available individually), three cremes, Respect, She Wolf and Miss Independent, and one glitter, Can’t Be Tamed. I love the range in this collection…from earthy to glitzy, you can’t go wrong with any of them. Let’s take a peek!

These four polishes are described as: “From the discerning She Wolf and the boardroom dominating Miss Independent, to the brick-red that demands Respect and glittery bronze that Can’t Be Tamed, this collection is for the bold woman who has something to say and won’t stop until she’s heard. Embrace your strong and expressive side with these new full coverage shades: She Wolf, Respect, Miss Independent, and Can’t Be Tamed, previewed at the Badgley Mischka A/W 2015 runway show.”

She Wolf isn’t as shy as you might think for a taupe natural polish. She’s glossy and so easy to apply, you’ll think your cheating!

She Wolf is a dreamy creamy 2-coat formula. A gorgeous taupe for fall!

Respect demands all eyes on her. Nothing beats a great red and this one has an edge.

You have to give props to Respect! It's a sexy red, but this 2-coater is highly pigmented and buttery smooth to apply.

Miss Independent is outstanding and stands up to be noticed.

I love a great berry shade and Miss Independent is perfect in every way. 2 coats.

Can’t Be Tamed is a wild one with its gold glitter and sweet honey base.

Can't Be Tamed is gorgeous with it's tiny gold and bits of holo glitters in a honey jelly base. One coat is great as a gradient topper (here over Miss Independent) or only 2 coats for a full coverage mani.

Conclusion: I’ve never been disappointed with any DL polish I’ve used. I highly recommend each one of these. The cremes are a joy to apply, highly pigmented and all 2-coaters. The glitter, Can’t Be Tamed may seem timid upon the first coat, but totally becomes opaque with the 2nd. Love all four of these!

Available now 2015 (SRP: $18 each; $20 for Can’t Be Tamed) online at www.deborahlippmann.com, and at Barney’s New York, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Sephora stores nationwide.

Drink With Me & Bronze Me Baby by Madam Glam, delicious!

I have two of six polishes sent to me from Madam Glam to share with you today. Drink With Me and Bronze Me Baby. I’ll be following up with the last four in a very near future post! But first, let me help you drool over these beauties!

Bronze Me Baby and Drink With Me. Both perfect formulas! I love the textured glitzyness of Bronze Me Baby yet easy to remove formula. Drink With Me is what all shimmery cremes should be!

Drink With Me by Madam Glam is the quintessential deep deep burgundy wine. It’s almost like having a Cabernet with a slight sexy shimmer on your nails.

Here is two thin easy coats, taken in my sunroom. The subtle shimmer allows the wine to shine, and glints of light play within.

Drink With Me is a Purple plum. It is described as: "This deep plum color will make a great fall manicure. Holding that glass of red wine has never looked this classy! Very subtle shimmers. One to two coats for full opacity. Very smooth to apply." Sooo Glossy!

Application is as near to pigmented perfection as it comes. The formula is what I like to see in all cremes and shimmers like this. It stays buttery smooth and wet for the duration that you apply it to each fingernail. It never drags or get ahead of itself. It doesn’t pool or goop up on you. It’s patient and kind! Lol yet it dries fairly quickly to such a glossy finish, you’ll wonder if you already applied a gloss topcoat and slept through it!

Bronze Me Baby is another huge win. This formula…wow! Love love love it!

Bronze Me Baby is so femme yet has that edgey texture we all love. And EASY to remove!

Bronze Me Baby is a glittery golden pink. It is described as: "A fusion between gold and pink, topped with shiny glitter. What more can you ask from a nail polish?" This reminds me of rose gold. I love the texture on this. Very much like the original Pixie Dusts by Zoya.

Totally in love with this delicate rose gold texture. It's not snaggy and such an easy quick mani, two this coats!

I can’t wait to show you the rest. I’m trying desperately to stay caught up with all my swatching. With about a dozen polishes waiting in the wings and even more winging their way through the postal service presently, I say to winter, “Bring it on!” My nails and my camera are ready 😉 Footnote: I hit my pointer finger nail on a grocery cart today…no, I didn’t swear but I wanted to! I broke the tip off the nail of my model hand, so, looks like I’ll be shortening those nails a bit so they all match. So my next swatches my nails will be more “working length” but oh well, they grow fast thank goodness!

I need to also mention, Madam Glam not only updated their bottle designs, great brushes I might say. But the boxes that hold up to three polishes are super sturdy and well packaged. Great touch and attention to detail. I love that!

Madam Glam offers a myriad of shades in Vampy shades, neutrals, Neons, Pastels, Glitters and Golds. They also have Soak Off Gel polishes, foundations and lipsticks. All are full size .5 oz beautifully packaged bottles. All Madam Glam products are “five-free”: Product does not contain Formaldehyde, Toluene, DiButyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde Resin Or Camphor.

La Belle Endormie by Pahlish, as juicy as it’s name

Well, Instagram swatches get me every time. When I saw a swatch of La Belle Endormie, I was immediately smitten. The glossy, grapey, jewel-like beauty called out to me! This is one of two polishes I just purchased from Pahlish. This indie line really has some gorgeous polishes.

I wanted to capture some light coming through the bottle so you could see the grape jelly base that shoulders beneath the shimmer.

Pahlish describes “La Belle Endormie” as a vibrant red-toned purple jelly packed with bright gold metalic shimmer.

Drink it in! La Belle Endormie is perfect for fall and such an attractive wine shimmer.

Pahlish says, “La Belle Endormie or “Sleeping Beauty” is one of the nicknames given to the French city of Bordeaux, the wine capital of the world, because its beautiful city center was once covered in black soot from the industrial revolution.” I love it when our indie makers include these lovely gems of history to a name!

La Belle Endormie is also an amazing formula. Quick drying, glossy, super easy to apply.

Yes, yes, yes! If I was using a star system I’d give this jewel a 5 out of 5 🙂
