Deborah Lippmann Forget You and Candy Shop (Get This Party Started, Fall 2011)

I don't understand at all why my SO didn't like these polishes. He's loved most of the other Lippmann chunky glitters I've worn. (He's even worn a couple himself!)

Deborah Lippmann Forget You

Basically, Lippmann Happy Birthday in black jelly. The above is three coats. And man, did it shrink a lot and fast. :( It's awesome because it's a version of Happy Birthday but on the whole, not super interesting. 

Deborah Lippmann Candy Shop

I always want to write this as "Candy Shoppe" (as in "Ye Olde"). I don't know why. This one I loved for some odd reason: me and pinks don't get along. I think I would've liked the barbie pink base just a little bit more jelly but as it is, the bright Happy Birthday glitter gets shifted down just a tiny notch, which gives the glitter a bit of a matte appearance. Three coats. Shrinkage city.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who gets shrinkage. I thought I was going crazy..I love both of these! I'm not a pink person either, but this reminds me so much of cupcakes or those pink and white animal I love it!

Oh no shrinkage! One of these days I'll buy Candy Shop. Love it. Looks like frosting on some wonderful cupcakes.

aimeeus: Oh, my SO loves loves loves having his toes polished. Though, right now, he's wearing a horrifically streaky shimmer/metallic orange Duri polish. He really likes it and I totally can't stand looking at it. I'm going to suggest he clip his toenails and while he's at it, I'll paint his nails some color that isn't unbearable.

ChromaCraze: What topcoat did you use?

Lucy: Isn't it totally yummy? I just wanna eat it.

Stacy: Hahaha, yes!

Beachgal: Did the same thing myself. ;)

MariJo: Thanks!

LauraSummer: I'm glad you agree. :D
