Swatch Spam - Deborah Lippmann: Part 1

Hey guys!

Sorry that I haven't been able to post for the past couple of days! My internet went down Thursday morning and we just got it back a few hours ago. I managed to keep up-to-date on Facebook on my phone but I wasn't able to blog at all. I did take a bunch of photos though so I have a couple of posts ready to go. :)

Lately there have been A LOT of hits on the few swatch posts I have for Lippmann polishes, so I thought that you guys might like it if I did swatches of all the Deborah Lippmann polishes that I own.
Now, I only own 10 altogether but I've only swatched 3 of them for you so there'll be 7 Lippmann polishes in this post and the soon-to-come Part 2 post that you haven't seen from me before.


Keep reading to see the swatches!

Happy Birthday, Today was a Fairytale, Bad Romance, Boom Boom Pow, Across the Universe

Happy Birthday (mutil-colour, multi-sized, multi-shaped glitter suspended in a clear base)
My swatch comparison post of this polish and 2 of its supposed dupes has been one of my most popular posts all month so most of you already know what I have to say about this polish. However, here's a link to that post in case you missed it.

Today was a Fairytale (sheer silver base with large and small silvery-blue glitter)
This shade was released for Holiday 2010 and it has a special ingredient called "Virgin Diamond Powder". I'm not sure what that really is, all I know is that this polish is gorgeous and unlike any other silver glitters I have in my collection. There's a depth to it so that it's not just your average glitter. This would most likely be used for layering but I also think it looks super pretty on its own - maybe only for an accent nail though since I wouldn't want to waste this.

Bad Romance (small and large magenta glitter packed in a black jelly base)
This shade was released for Fall 2010 along with Across the Universe and although I think this one took a backseat to Across the Universe, this is still an amazing polish. Just look at the swatches. Need I say more?

Boom Boom Pow (clear base with small and large gold glitter pieces as well as some smaller gold micro-glitter)
This was the other shade that was released for Holiday 2010 along with Today was a Fairytale and this one also has a special ingredient - 24 carat gold. I think the 24 carat gold is probably those smaller pieces of what looks like micro-glitter but they really stand out and make this shade super shiny and mesmerizing. This would most likely be best used as a layering polish but I also like the look of it on its own. However, like Today was a Fairytale, I probably would only use this on an accent nail because I would be afraid to use it all up.

Across the Universe (glitter party of small blue glitter and blue/teal hexagonal glitter suspended in a deep blue jelly base)
I've talked about this one a number of times, most recently in my Top 10 Polishes post so I'm not going to go into any detail here because you can just go back and see all of the awesome things I have said about it before.
