I saw this online at House of Fraser and had to have it, it looked so gorgeous! And, in the bottle it is, a deep dark blackened green, with incredible micro-shimmer.
As with my last Lippmann polish, application was perfect, smooth and opaque within two coats, and the wear was great, it lasted four days without chipping and I was very happy with it ...
Where's the shimmer? It's just black on the nails! Just occasionally, depending on the light, the angle of viewing, even the time of day, you get a hint of the shimmer, but most of the time it's just black. A good black, and a lovely polish, to be sure, but I was disappointed all the same. Gorgeous, just not quite gorgeous enough, I'm afraid. Especially at £14 a bottle!
The Fine Print: Bought this with cash. Not my cash, of course, but it still counts.
