Spring ReveriesMonday, April 14, 2014
Is that not the loveliest name for a collection you have ever heard? It makes me think of Secret Gardens - my favourite movie - and forbidden loves, cascading vines and fields of wildflowers. A better name could not have been chosen for a beautiful collection of spring nail polishes.
Deborah Lippman's newest limited edition collection consisting of 6 stunning shades was inspired by botanical gardens and flowers. It's meant to evoke thoughts of a daydream - poetic, sweet and magical - and I am completely obsessed. They are formulated with Green Tea extract, Biotin and Aucoumea - a resin that helps strengthen nails - and without DBP, Toulene, Formaldehyde Resin, Parabens and Camphor.
Out of the 6 available shades I chose the two that spoke to me the most; Blue Orchid - a pastel baby blue creme - and Flowers in Her Hair - a minty creme with a tint of aqua. They are both absolutely gorgeous and they have helped me get into the spring spirit. The formula is consistent and is super creamy, smooth and opaque in two coats. The wear time is great and they last beautifully without chipping or creasing on the nails.
I think I have found my new favourite spring polishes and I definitely recommend them! They are available at Sephora for $21 and they are definitely worth the money, I have not found anything similar at the drugstore.
