Deborah Lippmann: Forget You

Hey everyone and happy Friday!  I only had a one day week for medical reasons, but that doesn't stop me from being grateful for the end of the work week!  To celebrate the end of the week the boyfriend and I headed over to Nordstrom to catch the beginning of their Anniversary Sale.  They have a ton of huge discounts and special edition items to celebrate.  I had my eye on a bunch of stuff, but I couldn't wait to get my hands on the new Deborah Lippmann special edition set "Get This Party Started."  It's only available at Nordstrom and is on sale for $42, which is a huge discount for Lippmann polishes!  The set includes Forget You, Candy Shop, and Happy Birthday.  I already own Happy Birthday, so I will likely trade it for something I don't have, but purchasing the set is the only way to get the 2 new polishes at this time.

Update:  I forgot to mention the lovely sales associate who managed not to seem freaked out by my polish obsession.  I am pretty sure her name was Courtney, and she was GREAT.  At first we couldn't find this set, then I spotted the packaging about 20 feet away on a special display.  I hope she finds her way to the blog :)

Tonight I have Forget You, which I can guess is named after the Cee Lo song.  Lippmann polishes are 3 Free and this, like her other polishes, comes in the signature fancy cube bottle.  Forget You is a black jelly with the glitter from Happy Birthday throughout.  I don't know how the glitter still shines so brightly, but it definitely does.  The glitter is rainbow medium sized hex plus some small rounded glitter.  To give you some perspective on how dense the glitter is, this is only 2 coats!  Some of the glitter is a bit faded just like the glitter in GITA.  I imagine that effect would be more noticeable if I used more coats.  I didn't add more because the polish was opaque and I'm not one to mess with perfection

 Lippmann is known for her perfect formulas, in particular her jelly formula, and this is no exception.  The polish is butter smooth.  It takes a bit of focus to make sure the glitter doesn't drift outside of your polish lines, but nothing the average person can't handle. 

 Here's a quick snap shot of the set!  I had to take the cover off because of the reflection, but you all get the idea :)
Get This Party Started Special Edition Set
I'm not so sure you couldn't create a similar effect by topping a black jelly with Happy Birthday, but it wouldn't be entirely the same.  For all of you polish connoisseurs, you will appreciate the GITA-esque effect.  I know I do!  I'm keeping this one for sure.


P.S. How do you guys feel about another giveaway???

  1. I'm liking this a lot more than I thought I would. I still don't think I'd get it though.
