Lippmann Collection Spring 2009

These new colors from Lippmann Collection SCREAM Spring to me!

Lippmann Collection PYT: Pretty Young Thing:
lippmann collection pretty young thing
PYT: Pretty Young Thing is a fabulous coral pink jelly. When I saw this in the bottle I was kind feeling "meh" but I really like it on! Application was perfect and I used it over a ridge filler. My nails are a bit yellow and so when I wear sheer nail colors I really like a ridge filler to help cover the yellow. Trust me, sheer jelly pinks and yellow nails do not play well. This swatch is 3 coats of color over the base coat. PYT is opaque with 3 coats over a ridge filler. If you don't use a ridge filling base coat you might need 4 coats. And seriously, PYT by Michael Jackson is one of my favorite songs ever. Such a good party song! Just the idea that this nail polish makes me think of the song is a good thing.

Next, Lippmann Collection Purple Rain:lippmann collection purple rain
Purple rain is a sultry lilac frost. It was designed by Lippmann with the help of designer Zac Posen for use in his Spring 2009 fashion show. When I first saw Purple Rain, I thought it might be dupey for one of the purples in China Glaze's Romantique collection - but it is not. Purple Rain is definitely unique! The formula is a frost and the brush strokes are apparent but they don't bother me one bit. I think they give this nail color a very pretty and soft, almost delicate feel. It is a very feminine color. I usually don't like colors like this but I got so many compliments when I wore it the other day that I just cannot help but like it. 

I am always so excited to see what Lippmann Collection has in store for us so I am a little disappointed that only 2 new colors are being released. Oh well, 2 is better than a big fat zero. I guess we'll just have to take what we can get!

Did you guys know that Lippmann Collection nail polishes contain green tea extracts and protein-building biotin? I did not until doing a little more research on them today. Interesting! I am not aware of any other lines that contain these ingredients. 

These new colors from Lippmann Collection will launch next month online at Lippmann Collection and both online and in-store at Nordstrom.


  1. Great swatches :) I really like these, I wish I could get them in the UK :(

  2. I looooove PYT on you. And it is definitely my top 5 MJ songs. I've seen Lippman in Bath and Body Works. Are those polishes from their regular line?

  3. Gorgeous colours, that pink is so refreshing xxxxxxxxxx

  4. Hi Katee,

    I just can't get into either of these for some reason! I am not a fan of frost polishes so if that lilac was another finish I might like it better. Oh well!

  5. Wow, you must have been laying PYT on pretty thick to get it opaque with only three coats. I put on three relatively thick coats over Seche ridgefilling base and it was still semi-sheer and somewhat streaky. That's really only three coats?

  6. Wow - I love them both. Yikes...more $$...

  7. LIna-Elvira - No one online ships to the UK?! I am surprised!!

    B - Thanks! I love PYT too. Yup! Bath and Body will probably get these too.

    Rianna Bethany- I agree! The pink is very refreshing.

    Sasha - Isn't it gorge?!

    CincyFan - Yup! 3 coats over China Glaze's ridge filling base coat. Maybe the CG ridge filler is more opaque than the Seche? I have never used the Seche one. I really did not find it that streaky.

    Jamie - I know what you mean.


  8. pyt is sooooooooo pretty!!!!!! but lippmann is way too expensive. the most i spend on my nail polishes is $2. LOL.
