After my first Deborah Lippmann experience (review here), I was hesitant to try out another shade. I decided to bite the bullet though, and pick up Lilac Wine because it’s an absolutely beautiful color.
The official description for this shade is a lovely lilting lilac. Uhhh lilting? According to Google, lilt is a characteristic way of speaking, kind of in a sing-song voice. I’m not exactly sure how that applies to this nail polish shade, but whatever, I’ll just accept it.
Lilac is definitely not the way I would describe this shade. Lavender is much closer thanks to the lack of pink tones.
This Deborah Lippmann experience was so much better than the last. The polish was creamy and decently opaque – two coats for all the pictures above. It’s also high shine. I didn’t use a top coat, and everything remained shiny and beautiful. I got almost a week of wear without any chipping or flakes that weren’t user error (my fault).
I definitely have hope for Deborah Lippmann polishes now, and would definitely be willing to try out another. Walking on Sunshine must have been a fluke, so maybe I should try returning it for another one?
Price: $18 for 0.5 fluid ounces ($36/fl oz)
