I did a bad, bad, thing...

I went yesterday to Nordstroms to see if the rumors about Zulu were true..no dice, they didn't have, nor had the heard of it.  I looked around, not really buying anything and left.

This morning I ran out of my usual tinted moisturizer by Bobbi Brown and remembered that Nordstroms sale started today at 7am.  Exactly the same time I would get to work....SCORE!  So I made a detour this morning and went to Nordstroms first. I got my moisturizer remembered the new Lippmann's were out and asked to see them.  She whisked me over to them and I saw "Bad Romance", it is sooo hot!!!
















I had it in my hands until I saw "Across the Universe"!  OMFG!   I looked for a tester (so I could see the opaqueness against the bottle neck), they didn't have one out.  I told her I could not buy it without seeing the neck, she looked at me oddly and said "OK", so we opened a bottle and once I swiped the brush against the neck...I was sold!

The blue whore in me.. dropped "Bad Romance" like a bad habit and grabbed "Across The Universe", I ran to the counter, paid quickly and went to work!!














And now here I sit with my Nfu Oh #61 manicure and one Hot blue nail!!! I am in love!  This is my first Lippmann nail polish purchase ( I have the cuticle oil) and it is NOT going to be my last.

















2 coats, its smooth, not bumpy AT ALL.

Its a dark blue jelly base with bright blue glitter along with green and blue hexagon larger glitter...GORGEOUS!















I'm in love! Sorry for the crappy pics. but I had to do this all really quick before everyone came in the office and wondered why they smelled nail polish :):)














I'll swatch it again this weekend, so you can get a better pic...Happy Friday!
Pin It!

very pretty i like that hex glitter - your nails are growing so fast since the blog started. a1 on the snag i think the key word was "on my way to work"- i need more disposable income or a job maybe both lol, the purple lippmann is pretty too

Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes said...

Your post made me giggle today. I love being all "I gotta have this lacquer" like its some addiction. Next the nordstroms salespeople will be meeting us all in back alleys with brown paper bags with our nail polish stashes in them. LOL

Kimberly said...

Jackie, you are just so cute! I think only nail polish addicts, like us, can truly understand the lust for utterly beautiful polishes.

Did you get any work done between gazing in awe of this color? ;)

Veronica said...
