My Very First Deborah Lippmann!!!

Deborah Lippmann
Across the Universe
First of all I would like to thank Carly, at Lacquered Lover, for swapping me for this! I also blame her for making me want more DL's!

Across the Universe is a gorgeous green and blue glitter in a sheer dark blue base.
I chose to layer this over OPI DS Fantasy because I wanted to conserve this beauty and use less coats!

Yes I know i have shrinkage :( The huge chunk missing is also because I didn't let Gelous dry enough.

OPI DS Fantasy

OPI DS Fantasy
Fantasy is a gorgeous deep blue scattered holo.
You can also see some green in it as well, it reminds me of a mermaid or a deep blue ocean!

This one is just simply gorgeous!! I can't get enough of it, unfortunately I used Seche Vite and it shrunk almost instantly.

Ludurana Aurora Boreal Fascinante

Ludurana Fascinante
Fascinante is from the Aurora Boreal collection by Ludurana. Fascinante is a gorgeous multi-chrome nail polish that has great coverage in 2 coats! It also dries super glossy, so no top coat is needed!

The multi-chrome effect is from pink to an orange-brown to gold.


Pink to Orange-Brown


I am really loving these multi-chromes!! I think more are going to be added to my wish list immediately!!

The only issue is that they are a bit streaky and can leave bald spots so careful precise application is needed.

Luduranas are available on Llarowe. Llarowe is a website dedicated to selling gorgeous nail polish! You can also "Like" them on Facebook to get updates on stock and sales!!

Luduranas retail for $14 USD and are 8mL a bottle.

Ludurana Aurora Boreal Emocionante

Emocionante is a gorgeous purple multi chrome. The multi chrome effect goes from a dark blue, to purple, then a lighter pink purple, orange, then gold. Its truly amazing and gorgeous!

Blue to Purple

Purple to Pink

Pink to Orange

Orange to Gold

w/Flash in shade

Bonus picture to show the sparkle
This was so gorgeous and a beauty to apply. The application was great, only needing two coats, and all the pictures are with no topcoat. There is a slight smell, which isn't that bad, with the Luduranas but they are 3-Free.

You can purchase Luduranas from Leah Ann the US Stockist. She has a shop called Llarowe that has a wide variety of gorgeous nail polish brands! Check out Llarowe's Facebook page and "Like" it to get exclusive information on stock and sales!
The Luduranas retail for $14 at 8mL a bottle.

This product was sent to me for review. All opinions expressed are my own.

China Glaze Peri-wink-le with Ozotic 532

Peri-wink-le with Ozotic 532
Yesterday I had said in my post that I was going to spice my mani up...well here it is!!

532 is part of the mish mash collection. Since I layered it over the light blurple, you aren't really able to see the duochrome, but the holo is gorgeous! It did add a slight darker purple effect to it which is super duper hard to capture!

Here is what it looked like in the shade.

I really loved this mani so much that I wore it for a few days. I was actually able to wear it for about 5 days and the wear and tear was phenomenal!!! The chips that you do see are from me biting the corners, still overcoming my nail biting habit.

Wait until you see what I have in store for tomorrow's post..Peri-wink-le will be all glammed up!
