Deborah Lippmann: Bad Romance

Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance (2 coats)

Deborah Lippmann, you really hit a home run with this Fall Collection. As I've said time and time again, I'm not a huge fan of straight black polishes, but Bad Romance is a black jelly base with large and small hexagonal glitter pieces throughout which really lightens up the polish. When you look at the bottle, it seems much lighter than on the nail, but that's not a bad thing in the case of this one. Instead of having the two different color glitters like Across the Universe, Bad Romance has only the purple (which has lots of pink undertones to it). As much as I loved Across the Universe, I honestly don't know which polish I prefer. They are just so unique! The application was absolutely flawless and I had no problems with the larger glitter pieces applying evenly. I'm still surprised these only need 2 coats! Some may be wondering about removal of these, and I am happy to report it's not a big deal at all. Compared to, say, OPI Mad as a Hatter polish, this is a cake walk. The only thing you may need to do with a couple of the larger glitter pieces is to take an orange stick and pry them off since some really adhere to the nail. Anyway, lovely polish and if you don't have these, definitely pick them up if you can. Again, like Across the Universe, these are a Nordstrom exclusive so you can find these there.

This is gorgeous! I don't know if I'll buy either AtU or BR because they're so expensive, but...maybe. They certainly are both unique and beautiful!

I really like this polish! I am working on a dupe sort of a post and am wondering if I would use one of your photos for that? I will credit you and link you of course.

Have you seen Revlon's dupe?

Absolutely divine, but very expensive.
I'll see if I can find the revlon dupe, I cant get to a store that carries lipmann where I live.

But really lovely to see someone showing it off!
