  1. MUG SHOT: Gem and the holograms! The sparkly craziness of Deborah Lippmann’s Jewel Heist Collection for Fall 2013 (swatches)

    August 2, 2013 by pam

    Deborah Lippmann’s Jewel Heist Collection is the reason I’ve been been waiting for August 1 to arrive.

    I’ve been bursting with the desire to show you Deborah’s awesome fall colors and now I finally can.

    lippmannjewelheist1

    When I first unpacked these bottles, they took my breath away.

    lippmannjewelheist9

    Seriously. Look at them.

    lippmannjewelheist12

    Deborah calls these glitter shades “mega holographic.”

    I love that the colors match – two golds, two greens, two blurples. They’re great for mixing and matching. I had so much fun playing with them.

    Let’s start with Laughin’ To The Bank.

    lippmannjewelheist13

    Deborah Lippmann describes this as “emerald green glow.”

    lippmannjewelheist22

    That’s exactly what it is.

    lippmannjewelheist28

    It’s a true green – not the blackened blue green of the Lippmann classic Don’t Tell Mama.

    lippmannjewelheist18

    It’s gorgeous.

    lippmannjewelheist48

    Great formula.

    lippmannjewelheist61

    I used two coats for most of these pictures but this next one shows how three coats would look.

    lippmannjewelheist46

    This is Shake Your Money Maker.

    lippmannjewelheist66

    Deborah describes it as “resplendent radiant emerald glitter.”

    lippmannjewelheist68

    Shake Your Money Maker is a mix of really tiny blue-green hexagonal glitter and small gold hexagonal glitter set in a slightly blackened jelly base. The gold glitter flashes green, orange and blue depending on how the light hits it.

    lippmannjewelheist69

    Naturally, I wanted to see Shake Your Money Maker with Laughin’ To The Bank.

    lippmannjewelheist71

    This is one coat of Shake Your Money Maker.

    lippmannjewelheist75

    Application was easy – the glitter glides on nicely, no need to fish them out and dab them on.

    lippmannjewelheist79

    I like how the gold glitter pops against Laughin’ To The Bank but the teal pieces do not stand out as much against the green base.

    lippmannjewelheist80

    So I wanted to try it against black.

    lippmannjewelheist105

    Pretty.

    lippmannjewelheist115

    This is how it looks with a top coat.

    lippmannjewelheist127

    I love that sparkle.

    lippmannjewelheist120

    Like you, I also wanted to see if I can wear Shake Your Money Maker on its own, if it could become opaque without using another polish as base.

    lippmannjewelheist102

    The answer is yes. This is how it looked after four coats.

    lippmannjewelheist95

    This is Rolling In The Deep.

    lippmannjewelheist132

    Let’s stop for a moment because I need to say how much I love the name of this polish. Yes, I am a huge Adele fan, it’s my dream to watch her live and I have a feeling that when I do, I will be crying the entire time.

    lippmannjewelheist173

    Deborah describes this as “mysterious midnight blue.”

    lippmannjewelheist183

    I like that it has shimmery silvery flecks, making this already pretty color even more beautiful.

    lippmannjewelheist174

    Lovely formula – a jelly-creme hybrid.

    lippmannjewelheist163

    Two coats seemed enough but three might be better for more intense color.

    lippmannjewelheist161

    Brace yourself for Va Va Voom.

    lippmannjewelheist189

    When I first saw this, I said, “Whoa.” Deborah describes this as “scintillating sparkling sapphire glitter.”

    lippmannjewelheist192

    Va Va Voom is a mix of blurple hexagonal glitter in two sizes – small and smaller – and larger silver hexagonal holo glitter. They all flash different shades of purple and blue – and red and green and yellow and orange – as they move.

    lippmannjewelheist194

    It’s a great match for Rolling In The Deep.

    lippmannjewelheist196

    This deep blue is the perfect base for Va Va Voom.

    lippmannjewelheist202

    I love how it brings out the purple holo awesomeness of the glitter.

    lippmannjewelheist203

    Love.

    lippmannjewelheist213

    And I love it even more with a top coat.

    lippmannjewelheist235

    I love how it brings out the sparkle.

    lippmannjewelheist236

    You’ll have to excuse the abundance of photos, I just really love this combination.

    lippmannjewelheist237

    lippmannjewelheist225

    One more.

    lippmannjewelheist244

    I love it on its own too.

    lippmannjewelheist269

    It’s craaaaazy.

    lippmannjewelheist295

    The glitter pieces really do look like jewels on my nails.

    lippmannjewelheist270

    Va va voom indeed.

    lippmannjewelheist305

    This is Fake It Til You Make It.

    lippmannjewelheist310

    Deborah describes this as “glimmering gilded gold shimmer.”

    lippmannjewelheist311

    I know it’s described as a shimmer polish but it’s way more glittery than that. The micro-glitter finish reminds me of our beloved Lippmann Mermaids shades.

    lippmannjewelheist324

    This polish is super packed with really fine gold glitter and has a sprinkling of green and red sparkle.

    lippmannjewelheist327

    I know this was released for autumn but the green and red make it a great holiday nail color too.

    lippmannjewelheist326

    The formula was great.

    lippmannjewelheist321

    Application super easy.

    lippmannjewelheist340

    I used two coats.

    lippmannjewelheist329

    This is Glitter And Be Gay.

    lippmannjewelheist614

    Deborah describes this as “candescent canary yellow glitter.” I call it pure craziness.

    lippmannjewelheist658

    Of the six colors in the collection, this is the most difficult to describe. It’s a complex mix of holo glitter in two sizes set in a slightly yellow jelly base. I see gold, silver, rose gold, purple – and I see so many other colors produced by the holo glitter.

    lippmannjewelheist661

    I paired it with Fake It Til You Make It for a crazy gold mani.

    lippmannjewelheist690

    And it is crazy.

    lippmannjewelheist374

    Look at that.

    lippmannjewelheist406

    I don’t always love gold manicures but this one just rocks.

    lippmannjewelheist416

    I couldn’t stop staring.

    lippmannjewelheist412

    I love how the glitter flashes purple and green and blue and orange when I move.

    lippmannjewelheist365

    I wanted to see Glitter And Be Gay over black.

    lippmannjewelheist468

    It’s a great mix too.

    lippmannjewelheist492

    I love how the glitter looks like bokeh against the black polish.

    lippmannjewelheist496

    I will keep saying it: CRAZY.

    lippmannjewelheist501

    I love it.

    lippmannjewelheist503

    And yes, you can wear Glitter And Be Gay on its own too.

    lippmannjewelheist600

    It will look like you dipped your nails in jewels.

    lippmannjewelheist567

    With these nails, you can skip the rings and the bracelets.

    lippmannjewelheist586

    I can see myself wearing this with an all-black outfit.

    lippmannjewelheist595

    I just wonder how I’ll be able to stop looking at my hands.

    lippmannjewelheist557

    It will be a challenge.
