Lippmann Marquee Moon




(2 coats)

Why did I ever like this color? It's really brush-strokey and the sequins end up not being as reflective as one hopes. It is, however, one of my most gorgeous *bottle* colors. Invariably, when my muggle friends go through my stash, this is the bottle they pick up and go "ooooohhhh."

Reminds me of No place like chrome from essie :)

I have to agree...beautiful in the bottle, but looks like a train wreck on nails. Too bad since DL polishes are ungodly expensive.

When I first looked I thought there were massive dents and smudges all over your polish, then I realized it was the glitter! That one definitely doesn't translate from bottle to nail...

I actually really like this!! :D

Wow, this is really bad. The beauty in the bottle is a beast on the nails! What a waste of money. :(

You're right this polish looks amazing in the bottle! If only that translated to the nail. Love the reference to your "muggle" friends. My muggle friends always like complex glitters but can never seem to describe them the way I do.

Agree with you on this one - would be a what was I thinking moment for me too and then a gads moment...I need to donate this one FAST. But thanks for showing it so some of us who agree won't be tempted. I end up buying a lot of DL's just from description alone on line as it's over 200 miles one way just for me to see a very FEW of them one beauty supply has.

*sigh* so much potential with this one. If only the base were less opaque!

It is definitely not something I would buy after seeing this! I bet you could thin down the mixture and it might be ok.

lol, I remember when DL got mad that no one liked this and Chunky Monkey and tried to say that she wanted it to look like that.
Such a hotmess.com.

But you did a great job applying it honestly...this is one of the best I've seen it look. ^_^

Yuck! What a hot mess!! Metallics and glitter just don't mix (literally!)...

Lindsey R said...

Yeah, not a fan of this one either. Interesting idea though!

The sequins look more like something fell accidentally on your nails while pinting them than anything else...not a fan of this...
