Let's Go Crazy!

When the blogs and nail polish groups erupted with the news that Deborah Lippmann was making an exclusive glitter called Let's Go Crazy for the Nordstrom anniversary sale, I knew it would be mine.

But, I was in a quandary, do I wait until the sale goes live and hope to get it in Nordstrom in fear it would sell out?  That is too many maybes and hoping and stresses.  So I went with the sure thing, calling my mom and asking her to order me one (she is a cardholder and as such had early access)!  Even at 39 years, 10 months, and 2 weeks old, a baby girl can always depend on her mommy.  And, yes, I'm old.  You can close your mouth now! 

My lovely came to me via UPS yesterday and naturally I had to get it on my nails pronto.

I decided because most DL glitters are very sheer, to layer it over China Glaze Grape Juice.  This is a purple shimmer and I thought it would be cool because the shimmer would shine underneath the purple jelly base. It does in person, but it was harder to capture in photos.

This is 2 coats of Grape Juice with 1 coat of Let's Go Crazy on top.  As with all Lippmanns, the formula is fantastic and it has that wow factor.  It was top coat hungry, this has one coat of Seche and one coat of Nails, Inc Kensington Caviar on top.

Grape Juice was a little thin for me and I had issues with pooling.  CG is either perfect or runny, there seems to be no in between.  This was a runny.  Thus my application was soiled, but I really don't care!  

I just love it. 

Shade (look at the shine this baby gives off, you can see my reflection!):

Sunlight (for whatever reason, I always tend to be heavy handed on the glitter on my middle finger, coincidence or subconscious?  Hmmmmm):

See how nice and smooth (and on the right nail you can see the shimmer peeking through)!

Up close view of the pretty!

Deborah Lippmann polishes can be purchased at Nordstrom (and this was is a Nordstrom exclusive), but you can usually find GREAT deals for DLs at  China Glaze can be purchased at Sally Beauty Supply or Ulta.

  1. I love this so much! Thank you for the sun pictures. I have this coming to me and can't wait to get it now.

    1. Yeah, I was excited about it too. I definitely felt it needed good underwear, but I feel like that with all of the DL glitters with a jelly base!

  2. I love that this one is in a purple base! It's my favorite color, so it's right up my alley. It's really pretty with all of that glitter.

    1. I was trying to think if I had any glitter in a purple jelly base and I don't, so this makes it unique!

  3. Oh my, you are quick! I have been drooling over the pics on FB. I love purple so this is going on my wishlist for sure. Great pictures, as usual:)

  4. This is simply gorgeous! I love the color purple and the glitters are so pretty!

  5. stunning, love how it is a deep purple rather than a black
