Deborah Lippmann Dancing in the Sheets

Good morning! I know it isn't usual for me, but here is a morning post featuring the other half of the Footloose Deborah Lippmann set I scored from HSN on clearance, Dancing in the Sheets. I mean, really, how can you pass up 2 DL's for $13 and change?! The other polish in this duo, a sky blue creme (abso. to die for!), is called Let's Hear it for the Boy. I used it in my gradient and stamping manicure I showed you previously.

If you ask me, Dancing in the Sheets sounds like a pretty risque' name for a polish... damn, that makes me sound like a prude! lol But it doesn't matter, because this polish is amazing and worth an eyebrow raising name! DITS is a blackened navy blue shimmer packed in a purple jelly base. YES. I said purple. You can't see it on the nail at all after the first coat, but you can see it a little in the bottle. It makes it look duochrome-y, so tricky! Although the purple base doesn't translate on to the nail it gives depth and character to what otherwise could be a pretty standard and run of the mill navy shimmer.

Is it really navy? I'm starting to see nothing but "sapphire" the more I look!

What you see in these photos is two coats of Dancing in the Sheets over base, without top coat. Can you believe the shine? Its incredible. The more bottles of Deborah Lippmann's I bring home, the more I am loving this brand. You really can feel the quality of a luxury brand. I'm just glad I snagged it at a great price! Ya know, since I'm cheap... and buy a lot of polish.

Application was very good, as was the formula. The first coat went on rather sheer and that's when you see the amazing purple base. It looks a little patchy at one coat but the second is all you need to finish up your manicure. The best part of all this? Clean up and removal. I had no problems cleaning up my cuticles, no flooding or shimmer fallout, and there was no staining. I adore a killer blue that doesn't stain. <3

So there ya have it lovelies, a beautiful jewel toned sapphire shimmer! 'Till next time, xoxox!
