Deborah Lippmann- Razzle Dazzle

Mmmm, it's time to showcase yet another delicious Deborah Lippmann polish. This time, I'm showing what may be one of my all-time favorites- Razzle Dazzle. It's no secret I've got major glitter love, and this is one spectacular glitter polish.

Razzle Dazzle came out with the All That Jazz collection, which also includes Some Enchanted Evening (a sheer polish with multi-sized pink glitters) and Lady Sings the Blues (a jelly navy polish with multi-sized glitters). Razzle Dazzle is a deep blackened raspberry with super-dense glitter. It is absolutely LUSH!

As with other Lippmann polishes, application was a dream. I swatched this on artificial nails originally, but then decided I needed to wear it on my own nails while they were super-short. Those photos will be coming up.

The good news is that even without a base coat or topcoat, this polish wore like iron on me! I think I kept it on for 5 days, maybe 6, without a chip. Crazy! It's such a deep, rich color that I think it's perfect for fall, or holiday parties, or even just curling up with your favorite book!

See? Nubs. I ended up breaking most of my nails, so I decided to cut them all off and start over. I think these photos were taken on day 4 of wear. I'd also received a couple of Migi nail art pens in the mail, so you can see where I tested them. They do nicely, but I'll have more about those soon!

Removal is the one big drawback to this polish, and it's the same as any other glitter. Just take your time and use a good strong polish remover. I've started cutting my cotton pads in half, then soaking each half in remover and sticking them onto my nail to soak for a few minutes. After a bit, I wiggle the pad, then slide the polish right off with no real hassle. It's sweet!

Finally, I've got the stample to show you! Would you believe you can stamp with this polish? To be honest, I'm not even sure why I tested it with my Konad stuff, but it actually worked decently. The sticker you see is half black, half white, and the polish shows up nicely on white. It's slightly sheer, but it's a pretty look.

So tell me, what do you think of Razzle Dazzle? Keep your eyes peeled, I've got some fun things coming up for the holidays!
