Deborah Lippmann Wicked Game

deborah lippmann wicked game nail polish swatchMy apologies for the obscene number of pictures in this post....I had a seriously hard time trying to capture Wicked Game on camera! And to be fair, one or two photos just aren't enough to show the huge range of colors that this iridescent duochrome contains. It's not at all the type of color that usually attracts me, but for some reason wearing this makes me ok with the fact that my fingertips look like little space beetles.

deborah lippmann wicked game nail polish swatchThis is my first Lippmann polish and I'm really impressed by the quality. Frosty, metallic polishes like this often show every imperfection on the nail surface, but Wicked Game's excellent formula minimizes that. I do use a basecoat, but I do that with all my polishes no matter what. Wicked Game is very thin but also quite opaque, so I only have to use two coats. The thin layers means that it's seriously chip-proof. I get less tipwear with this polish than I do with any other brand, and no big chips. It's spendy at $16, and I'd never buy a trendy collection at that price point (I bought this two years ago with a gift card). But I must admit that if Lippmann comes out with one of my all-time favorite colors in this same great formula, I'm going to be tempted to splurge.

  1. Hi Caroline, I've been thinking about Lippmann all day. What a coincidence! I have yet to purchase one, even though I'm always eye-ing them! I'm really loving your blog; it's awesome that you tackle so much skincare. It's not easy to do!

    1. Aw, thank you so much! And I'm surprised at how impressed I am with the formula. I'm usually very skeptical of pricey polishes because really, how much better can they be? But I did my nails on Sunday night and it's Friday night now and I only have one teeny tiny chip on my thumb - otherwise they're still perfect!

  2. This was my first Lippmann polish also. I raved about it at the time but later found that I didn't reach for it much. It's a cool shade but not really "me" after all. Glad you're enjoying it!

    1. I'm really surprised I like it as much as I do - I'm pretty boring and usually stick to cremes and sheers. I think it's because the metallic sheen isn't too over-the-top.
