Topbox - Whatever Lola Wants review
came in the May Topbox. I was so stoked to receive a Deborah Lippmann polish.
My first one! YAY!
Whatever Lola Wants is a celebrity collaboration polish with Kelly Ripa.
Whatever Lola Wants is a sheer pink shimmer with silverish micro glitter. The colour on my nails looks true to the bottle in real life but my camera had a hell of a time trying to pick up the pink on my nails. I think the shimmer was causing me problems. I tried with flash, without, in bright light no flash, by the window etc... I must have taken 40 pictures and only a couple came out true but of course they were blurry. In most of the shots, the polish came out champagne.
Wiee-erd! My Panasonic camera sucks! I just bought a new camera (an Olympus). :-D Hopefully it will be here this week. Fingers crossed!
After putting on the first coat I was like Uh-oh this is not going to be opaque in 3-4 coats. I put on three coats and could still see my nail ridge. Oh well...3 coats of WLW and one coat of Seche Vite is what I have on. Please forgive my gnarly cuticles. I am trying to take better care of my nails, really. J
But anyhoooo... I think WLW is a pretty flirty shade. When I see it I think of romance, brides and bouquets... LOL cheesy much? Hehe. Anyhow I think this would be a great polish for someone to wear on her wedding day.
The application went easy, smooth and dried reasonably fast. I only need one coat of Seche Vite for total glossy smoothness. So far I have had it on 3 days and no visible wear yet. Sweet.
Overall a nice polish but is it worth $20? Uhmm no. I don’t think WLW is that ‘special’. Plus I needed to use quite a few coats to get any kind of opacity. But I definitely will try this over a base coat (white?pink?) in the future.
So Topbox gals, what did you think of the Deborah Lippmann polish?
