Glitter in the Air

  My mom and sister were out shopping the other day, and they were so sweet to pick me out a polish I had been wanting for a long time - Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air!  While I am excited to try wearing it on its own too, as a super sheer look, I knew I first wanted to wear it layered over a light blue.

Outdoors, shade
  For this look, I started out with three coats of OPI I Vant to Be a Lone Star, a gorgeous pale blue with a subtle shimmer that was almost a dead on match for the bottle color in GITA.  I then applied three coats of Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air, which contains blue and pink large hex and small round glitter, in addition to tiny blue shimmer particles, suspended in a milky light blue base.  Pretty close match to what it looks like in the bottle, in my opinion.  :)

Outdoors, sunlight
  I know that this is a polish a lot of people have felt let down by this year - everyone was super excited, and then a lot of people ended up not liking it at all, for its sheer color and low glitter payoff.  I agree that the glitter density could have been a bit higher, but personally I don't mind adding extra coats to make up for it.  I love this look - it is so cute and dainty and fresh feeling.  While there was a slight tendency of the glitter to clump a bit, this was easily fixed with one extra swipe of the brush.  I am excited to try layering it over other colors, as well as trying it out by itself.  I continue to never have been let down by a Lippmann!

  And just for fun, have a picture of a bee on my purple cone flowers that I took while I was taking pictures of nails.  :)


  1. I love how this polish looks when layered! I'll have to pick this up eventually.

  2. So pretty! I'm seriously rethinking this polish. :P

  3. I'm in love with that manicure!
